Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-F717 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Battery fully charged but my Sony F717 just unable to switch on.

I have been using my Sony F717 regulary, last night I took photos and it was alright. This morning when I tried to switch on the camera, it just cannot function anymore. I tried to charge the camera directly but there is no signal seen. I have 2 batteries and I tried to replace with another one but the camera still cannot be on.

    dsc-f717 worked fine, (but for one issue... when zooming in or out cam could not hold final position and would slip back to a smaller or larger picture by just a bit)(don't know if that is relevent)
    SO.... worked fine, changed the battery and camera would not turn on. tried with other batteries, that's not it. On a few of the attemps to turn on the cam the "on" light went on for a split second and the shut down.

    Camera was working fine on a nearly full battery. Then the screen suddenly went black while preparing to take the next picture and there was no power. I tried switching batteries and then attaching to a power supply. No sign of life, not even the yellow charging LED.
    HELP!

    Exact same issue with mine. I was watching the videos on my tv from my camera and I guess the av plug wasn't pushed in all the way because the tv went fuzzy. When I properly seated the plug the camera just died and it wouldn't power back on. I put it on the charger and the light came on for a few seconds then died again. Swapped batteries and hit the reset button and it's still dead. I wonder how much Sony is going to charge to fix it?

Unable turn on canon 60D i was reviewing the photo


Remove the battery and memory card, switch the power switch on for a few seconds and then switch it off. Make sure the battery is fully charged, re-insert the battery and try to switch on again without the memory card in.

Battery not charge


the battery may have developed a memory from continually recharging a partially used battery. The battery charges to this point and reads fully charged but when used it shows as flat because the charged portion is the bit that is used and not the whole battery. Replace the battery with a new one and only charge the battery when it shows as flat.

I have the same problem. I recharged batter but when I try to turn on my DSC F717 he just want start. Sometimes you just have to wait few hours and then its possible to turn it on. It is becoming very annoying! Any answer would be very helpful.
Thanks!!!

I have a low battery indication with a fully charged battery on a Sony DSC-F717. What do I do?


First, even a fully charged battery may not be working right - VERY common.
Does the camera do this on two batteries, one old and one much newer? (I say this because lithium batteries are good for about 500 charges - if you are over this, the batteries will always read weak...)
A service shop can test the camera and see if the battery is reading correctly. A service shop may allow you to try the SHOP's good battery in your camera and see if it reads right. If OK, you need a new battery.

The service shop can reload the operating data into your camera - I have fixed them this way myself.
If not, the circuit board that handles charging and batteries may run you $275 plus labour. (The board is not repairable)

Flickering and loss of colour


Problem now solved. I switched the camera on and off a few times and took several test photos. After a few minutes the problem resolved itself. I suspect the cause was condensation, but cannot be sure.

DSC-F717 won't turn on


You are correct. The battery has lost it`s life.

Contact your nearest Sony dealer and ask them for the NP-F50 battery which I think your camera uses.

The reason why the battery still shows it is charging ( if your interested ) is due to the sensing cct - you will see your battery has three poles and not just 2. The sensing pin is faulty due to the buildt in PCB having a problem. The batteries probably are still ok inside, but the sensing cct does the actual charge control.

Best of luck.

Reddish cast in photos, white objects look pink.


Hello dcmassey, the cause of the problem can be CCD imager. So, the best solution is to claim for Sony recall. If there is some other problem ask for the price estimate. Please contact the nearest Authorized Sony Service. Best regards, Arpi

Has my F717 kicked the bucket?


If the LCD is "smeared" in record mode, it isn't the memory stick or any of the other solutions you've been offered. It's one of the following, I would guess: 1) condensation in the camera 2) loose or bad connector to the CCD or power supply 3) Camera is history. Hit eBay and get a new one BTW, It costs about $175 for repair by Sony (at least the last time I had a repair done on a 717). It's probably worth it as long as the rest of the camera is in good shape. Definitely cheaper than buying a new one or a used one. Sorry about your problem...
