I have ASIN of the products in database.
I want to show product images on my website based on ASIN. I do not want to go for AWS account.
I have used
http://images.amazon.com/images/P/ASIN.01._SCTZZZZZZZ_.jpg to show the image
e.g.  http://images.amazon.com/images/P/B00C5RJ51G.01._SCTZZZZZZZ_.jpg
it works for some products and does not work for some products.
e.g. http://images.amazon.com/images/P/B00C5RJ51G.01._SCTZZZZZZZ_.jpg works
but http://images.amazon.com/images/P/B005DFITA0.01._SCTZZZZZZZ_.jpg does not work.
I need help to sot out the issue so it shows for every product.
Note: please read carefully, I do not want to go for AWS account.

They appear to be working from here.
http://images.amazon.com/images/P/ASIN.01._SCTZZZZZZZ_.jpg and http://images.amazon.com/images/P/B005DFITA0.01._SCTZZZZZZZ_.jpg  are 1x1 pixel images.  They were supposed to be something else?

No it is not that.
Please see the picture on product page .> https://www.amazon.com/dp/B005DFITA0
(URL for product page from ASIN >  https://www.amazon.com/dp/ASIN  ASIN is B005DFITA0 )
(URL for product picture from ASIN > http://images.amazon.com/images/P/ASIN.01._SCTZZZZZZZ_.jpg )

That is my question. :)

 
If you have ASIN, you can get picture by URL http://images.amazon.com/images/P/{ASIN}.01._SCTZZZZZZZ_.jpg  where ASIN to be replaced with actual ASIN.
So
 http://images.amazon.com/images/P/B00C5RJ51G.01._SCTZZZZZZZ_.jpg works
but http://images.amazon.com/images/P/B005DFITA0.01._SCTZZZZZZZ_.jpg does not work.

Don't know what to tell except that it's not working.  All you are getting is a 1x1 pixel image.

Where did you get the ASIN database? 'cause I guess that ASIN are updated often so maybe your db is outdated.

@ Ferruccio Accalai,

It is current file.
I get products page from that ASIN
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B005DFITA0    (where B005DFITA0 is ASIN)

Thanks.

Seems that it's not the same situation for every product.
There are API's related to get every information passing ASIN
Take a look at the Amazon Marketplace Web Service (Amazon MWS) Documentation

You probably want to read this carefully, since it looks like you may run afoul of the terms of use.

Pay particular attention to "LICENSE AND ACCESS" and please make sure you've got competent legal advice before you try to "scrape" information from the Amazon web pages.
