NX5U Viewfinder Issue

Hello all,

I've had my Sony NX5U for just under a year now. I love the camera and im very happy with it. However, I recently noticed that the viewfinder seems to have a sort of distorted, fuzzy line going horizontally across it. I rarely use the VF so i just noticed it. I tried taking the eyepiece off and cleaning it, thinking that it could have been a hair or something and it still hasnt gone away.

Has anyone else encountered this problem or has some suggestions on what is causing it?

Thanks,
Andrew

Re: NX5U Viewfinder Issue

Well, just to state the obvious...this is not normal behavior for the VF. Have you tried adjusting the VF lens adjustment lever to see if that makes a difference? If not, my guess is that this is something that the end user cant just fix or adjust on their own.

Andrew, you mention that you have had the camera for just under a year, I would strongly suggest contacting Sony support before your 12 month warrenty expires (hopefully it hasn't already) and see how they tell you to proceed. Good Luck!
