Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-F717 Digital Camera

2 Answers

No display on LCD

So it switches on, the menu appears on LCD screen but then its just a black screen - the lens cap is definately off! When trying to take a picture, it just appears black. Old photos display without any problems. Will be 3 years old in September. Have camera insurance but does not cover mechanical/electrical problems.

When in video recording mode LCD screen and viewfinder are black when the lens cap is off.


It could one of a few problems:

1. The viewfinder is pulled out and "PRIORITY" is set to "FINDER".

Push the viewfinder back in or set "PRIORITY" to "LCD".

2. The LCD monitor's brightness setting is too dark.

Adjust the brightness of the LCD monitor.

3. If the monitor is tilted upward 180 degrees, open the monitor fully.

When the camera is switched on the lens goes in and out twice and then the message that appears on the screen is 'turn the power off and on again'


Hi,


Error: TURN THE POWER OFF AND ON AGAIN is displayed on the LCD screen when the Lens Mechanism is stuck or when affected by any malfunction. If turning the power on and off again does not resolve the error message, try doing a power reset and Initialize option.

Performing a manual power reset

Turn off the camera.

Remove the battery pack.

Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds.

Allow the camera to remain without power for 60 seconds.

Reinsert the battery pack.

Turn on the camera.

To reset the Camera back to factory default, select the INITIALIZE Option from the SET UP1 Menu of the Camera to OK.This will set the user defined settings back to factory default. The images and videos will not get deleted.


If the issue persists, service may be required.


Thanks for contacting FixYa

LCD/EVF screen come on but is "snowy"


The problem is the lens is not opening, If you look into the lens you can see it is closed. This will require a trip to the repair shop.

Hi,
Does the camera take pictures?
If you take the camera near a lamp, can you just about see menu items on the LCD?
If so, it's possible that the backlight ribbon cable slipped out of the socket. To check open up the back of the case and carefully lift it up a bit just to see the ribbon cables. The narrow one is used for backlight. Try to disconnect it (open the tiny black flap in the connector) and connect it again (close the black flap). Have a quick look at the connectors on the ribbon cable and make sure they are clean. If it still doesn't work I'm afraid most probably you have a faulty backlight and will need to replace either the whole LCD (easy) or just the backlight (fairly fiddly job). In any case, you'll probably need a donor camera (ebay ;) to scavenge for replacement LCD.
Good luck,
Raf

could be one from a batch with faulty CCDs - check out this fixya link (solution 2) - http://www.fixya.com/support/t115316-canon_mv30 - it's copied from a page at imaging-resource.com - my MV600i was out of warranty and I sent it back to Canon at the end of 2007 and they got it going again free of charge within the week - unfortunately within weeks a very similar fault appeared and now they're trying to charge me for the repair !!! even though they say repairs are under warranty for six months -
