October 13, 2005 - Joining the small but growing number of manufacturers who have been issuing service advisories this month for faulty CCDs, Ricoh has issued a service advisory for several of its digital camera models. When some digital cameras are put into camera mode, a faulty CCD causes the image on the LCD to be distorted or absent entirely.

Affected units can be found among the following models:

Caplio RR30

Caplio 300G

Caplio G3 model M

Caplio G3 model S

Caplio G4

Caplio G4 wide

Caplio 400G wide

Caplio RX

Ricoh is offering a free repair for owners of affected cameras, regardless of whether the damaged models are still under warranty. For the full service advisory, go to: http://www.ricoh.com/r_dc/info/ccd/ .

Ricoh is one of many digital camera manufacturers this month to issue a service advisory for problematic CCDs, on the heels of Fujifilm (which we reported on here) and Sony (discussed here).
