Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-F828 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Flexible circuit board

Whilst cleaning my camera I sadly broke the flexible circuit board that connects the side function buttons to the lens housing (Sigh). I am having great difficulty tracking down the part number and a supplier. I have spent hours on the net to no avail. Can anybody point me in the right direction Kind Regards Damo

Camera manufacturers are renowned for not releasing parts manuals or service manuals so the best bet would be to use another camera to take some shots of the part you need and email them to Sony. They'll figure out what you need. Unfortunately some of these flat ribbon cables are terminated within a particular part and so you may have to be that part with the cable attached. BMW

hi,
the cameras aperture could be faulty, the iris and shutter assembly inside the lens must be tested, there may be the flexible flat cable have cracks or totally broke, if you can change it, that is the remedy.

Canon 40d camera will only shoot in manual mode


Using your fingernail, push in the lens contact pins in the bottom of the mirror box several times. Sometimes they get tarnished and make poor contact with the flexible circuit under them. Doing this scrapes off the tarnish.

Screws come loose from the bottom circuit board and short it out. It contains the flash circuit so a short can throw 300 plus volts into a 6 volt circuit, damaging components. The lens contacts flex attaches to this circuit board. This is a common problem.

Impact can cause flexible circuits to either come loose from their connectors or have one side pull out so some of the lands on the flex don't make contact. Did you drop the camera?

I've had my T3i for about 18 months. Suddenly, I am getting an Error 01 when using my CANON EFS 55-250 lens which has always worked fine before. Any ideas? Cleaning the contacts has not helped.


Without pulling the error codes I can't give you a firm cause, but the most common reason you get erratic error messages is a failure of the aperture unit in the lens (or sometimes the IS unit). They are connected to the back of the lens circuit board by flexible circuits, and as you zoom them back and forth you get cracks in the flexes, like you used to get with the old point and shoot AF film cameras

Hi,
If you close lcd screen in its position, do you see image in eye piece (view finder) ?
If yes, then replace flexible ribbon connecting wire between camera board and lcd board to get picture in lcd screen.
Let me know if you need part number of flexible ribbon wire.
Thanks.

The Monitor screen doesn't work when I want to take a photo, I can only see picture through eye piece.


If your screen works in playback mode, the screen and flexible circuit boards are intact. To shoot an image using the LCD screen you must first activate the "live view" function in the setup menu, and then press the live view (Lv) button to view your image on the LCD.

How do i fix the focus on my panasonic lumix digital camara? M y camara used to automatically focus itself but not anymore.It is a dmc-ls75


Sadly, you don't. The camera was released about two and a half years old and unless you have an extended warranty then it's totally uneconomic to repair.

This was a budget model to start with as they were priced just over £100 and although discontinued, you can now get them as new old stock for about £90. Just a strip down and diagnosis would cost more than that.

Based on other digital cameras I've been asked to repair, these kind of faults are often due to shock or static damage, and sometimes due to deterioration of internal flexible printed circuit boards. Whilst under warranty, for cameras which retail at up to around £250 the manufacturer generally makes a quick determination as to whether the problem is a really simple one and if it's anything more complex just scraps yours and sends another out which may be new or "refurbished".

Sorry.

Lens error message on nikon coolpix L18 I purchased my Nikon L18 Cool Pix camera last September ('08). Last week when I turned it on, the lens extended fully, then retracted fully as I got a "lens error"...


Hi,
When system control does not get lens initialize signal while extending it, then it try again by folding it and extending and still no required initialize signal then generate error and stop further functions.

Please remove battery and open camera and remove flexible wire of lens mechanism from connector, there would be lock that needs to release to remove flexible wire. Clean wire terminals with alcohol, let it dry and put back flexible wire in connector and lock it. Now put battery and power camera up, hopefully lens will work properly.
