Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W50 Digital Camera

1 Answer

I am having some issues with my camera ..

Hey everyone ..

I got my camera for cheap at the beginning of this year and and the seller said all I needed was a charger and it would work.

Ive been using my DSLR and a DSC-T10 in the meantime.

So last month I finally upgraded to a new cybershot DSC W120.

So I was happy to get a new charger to charge the battery.

I charged the battery to full charge and then nothing ..

When I turn on the camera the lens comes all the way out and then it tells me to set the clock.

I cannot press any other button other than the power button.

Any suggestions or solutions?

Nikon N65 Won't Turn On , With NEW Batteries . This Camera Is NEW ! Please Help ''/

Nikon hasn't manufactured the N65 is several years now, so if you bought it it was either misrepresented as new, or possible new-old-stock (a never sold/used item, that's been sitting on the shelf for a number of years). I'd be willing to venture you probably ran into a disreputable seller.

Either way, open the battery compartment and look for corrosion in the compartment. If that's present clean it off with the eraser of a pencil and try again. If that doesn't work, contact Nikon service with the warranty information in your package. If it's a new item, it'll still be warrantied since the warranty won't begin until it's sold to a consumer.

If, however you find that the camera was sold 10 years ago and no longer under warranty, you'll probably want to either find a local reputable shop, buy another camera if yours turns out to be too expensive to repair (impossible to tell until someone looks at it to determine the issue), or if you don't have a local shop I'd recommend KEH Camera in Atlanta, GA for mail-order/internet dealers. They've been in business many years and are very reputable.

My sirius usb 2.0 camera driver is not please send me a driver download link immediatly...

I got this same camera cheap last year on ebay. Once I received it with no drivers/software I contacted the seller and they promised a dozen times they would send it, but never did. I finally filed a complaint with paypal and got my money back, but was told to keep the camera by the seller.
It became a paperweight because I could not get it to work with Windows XP or Vista. Then several months later Windows 7 comes out. Out of curiosity I plugged this camera into my new Windows 7 machine, and Windows automatically downloaded and installed the drivers.
I then went out and found the free software Yawcam (Yet Another Webcam Software). It works well with this now free camera.
My only real complaints are that I have to manually focus the camera and the night vision feature does not seem to work (but I figure both those issues are because the software does not support it and has nothing to do with the camera). If anyone has a better software suggestion please let me know.
It also works great with Skype, but I still have to manually focus it.
All in all I don't know how much of an answer that is for you, but it is how I got my Sirius USB2.0 Camera working.

I have a Olympus C8080 digital camera that won't start up? It has a brand new battery, which I purchased because the old battery was over 4 years old, and because it took a charge in about 5 minutes, but...

Are you using a genuine Olympus BLM-1 or a cheap "compatible" battery. It's possible that the original fault was caused by a worn out battery, but if you've bought a cheap compatible from places like eBay or Amazon then they're often very poor quality and frequently not of the stated charge capacity. Sometimes they're not even lithium batteries so your charger and camera won't work properly with them They're often so cheap that there is no effective quality control so your new battery may well be a faulty one. There is no way that the new battery would have been fully charged after just eight minutes: although they're usually supplied with a partial charge it's nowhere near a full charge.

Another possibility is that your Olympus BCM-2 charger is faulty.

Worst of all, you may simply have been sold a pup. If the eBay seller described the camera as being in good working order then I suggest you ask for a refund and return the camera. Although private sales are "as seen" they also have to meet the sellers description. If the seller won't play ball then you may be able to claim PayPal buyer protection if you used it to pay the seller.

Your camera is a five year old model now and way outside the warranty, in the UK perfectly good used examples sell for around £125 and this is likely to be less than the likely cost of any repairs if you send it to Olympus. You'll need to carefully weigh up what you've paid so far, what you're likely to have to additionally buy just to diagnose the fault correctly and what you can get if you just cut your losses and sell the camera as is.

$87.56 sucks, but it could be worse. Problem is now, I'm not sure how to replace it without taking the entire camera apart.

Everyone I used a large paper clip straightened & cut it to size .i did try to grind down a nail on my drill but that did not work You have to take some small screws out around the door then fit the metal pin from the large paperclip and the put the screws back .Alternatively you could try watch pins etc .But hey paperclips are very cheap .They might not be as robust as the origonal but the will do the trick.Lasted at least 6 months untill i dropped the camera recently.
