Based on the information provided it seems that the issue may be with the LCD Screen. You can check if the Camera is working by capturing images and inserting the Memory Stick in the Computer Memory Card slot.

Turn off the Camera.
Remove the battery pack.
Press and hold the power button for 15 seconds.
Then, allow the Camera to remain without power for 60 seconds.

The problem is well known for this model of Sony DSC-F505V. The circuit board behind the display is the problem. Its replacement code is SY-62. As symptoms, sometimes the camera start but next time stays with the display black and the green light on. Cheers

It is so simple. Forget Microsoft and connect to a Mac. Everything is then automatic - no problems. I ask my wife to download my photos to her Mac and then send them to me.
Makes Microsoft look pretty stupid, I think !

on many sony models such as the dsc f707 and f717 and probably on your model as well ... sony uses a special flash that actually flashes twice .. it does it so fast that it looks like one flash .. the first flash sets up the metering.. the second takes the picture .. so if you try to use a standard flash you will get a dark image since they only flash once .. so you have to use a special flash attachment that is capable of double flashing .. sony, of course, makes them (HVL-F1000) and some outside suppliers as well .. sony calls it "intelligent flash"

here is a low cost "auto slave" flash for your camera:

you dont have to hook this one up .. it uses the normal camera flash to trigger itself .. so you can move it around to get lighting effects or mount it on the camera to augment the normal flash

if you just want to use the internal flash (good to 8 feet) then here is some info ....

Yes, there is a hot shoe on the most upper part of the camera (slightly hidden). The problem with your camera is not a complicated one. Please contact your nearest Sony Service. If you need more info, please advice. Arpi

is it any thing to do with virus ????????

Usualy the flash is soldered into the unit. Are you sure its on? some pop up and some have to beflipped up automaticly. Does your display show a lighting bolt? the normal icon for flash being on is a lightning bolt. If it has a line threw it it is disabled in the settings somewhere. Ive never seen one that has failed so it makes me think there is a wrong setting somewhere. Try and hold it up maybe there is dust or dirt o the switch keeping it from detecting it is up and ready for use?

Dear Starrr63,
I think the slot where you insert the memory card has been damaged or it doesn't make contact with memory stick. See inside slot in good light, hope you will find damage/tilted pins there.

If there are random colour streaks moving around it can be due to defective CCD imaging IC. You need a skilled workshop to replace this and we can get you the parts from SONY and service manuals.

Hello, there can be a variety of reasons for this problem. Please try to clean the battery contacts (3 of them)with non greasy contact spray. If this does not help please contact the Authorized Sony Service. If you need more info please advice.

I don't know if it's considered "normal" or not, but my F505V does the same thing. The original in the msg above was only 2 seconds -- take a look at it and see how it compares to yours.

You really can't change the ISO, but you do have some control over it, by being aware of how the program AE modes affect the camera's ISO settings.
