Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-F717 Digital Camera
I can view images in playback mode, but no image registers on the LCD or finder otherwise. This showed up in another submitted problem, and it was suggested that the problem was that the iris wasn't opening due to 'seized vanes on iris motor'. This appears to be what is happening with my camera, but how do you fix that? Should I even bother trying myself?
