I got my little camera I've had for quite a few years out recently.|
It had been unused - without batteries - for all that time.
When I plugged it in and framed a picture to shoot - I noticed a "light stain" in the LCD window.
It was almost as though a light was shining in above the lens, and making a wide (1/4) light grey, slightly purplish streak at the top of the picture, narrowing towards the bottom (1/10). It's on the pictures taken - not just the LCD.
I'm guessing the CCD's failed?
What do you think the mode of failure was?
I'm a little worried my D20 will go the same way now...
