Half these job loses seem to be from their chemicals division and I expect a lot of the rest are from their TV division.

Sony digital imaging division claims they cannot keep up with demand - so why should there be job losses there?

Sony states it will expand its imaging business.

Not in the article you quote, they don't.

"The company developed three sensors it says are smaller, capture better images and consume less power. Sony is spending 140 billion yen by March 31 to double its production capacity of complementary metal-oxide semiconductors, or CMOS, said Tadashi Saito, head of the chip business. "

That's an entirely different part of Sony, and one that's reportedly up for sale.
