I have a 3 year old A1 that I'm very fond of.
But a day ago it started to appear flickering lines both on the screen and the seeker window.
The lines also displays on the photos.
Does anyone know what the problem is???

I have the exact same problem. It just started 2 days ago. I e-mailed the symptoms to a digitechcamerarepair.com and they said it was the ccd and to contact Sony-USA. Sony wants $211.00 to do the repair.

I might take it to a local repair shop and have them take a look at it.

I just had this problem with my camera and Sony fixed it for free. It's a defective CCD chip that many A1's are experiencing so Sony (who I guess now owns Konica Minolta) is taking care of for anyone experiencing trouble. They fixed mine perfectly, quickly, and totally free.
