I'd say the camera's had a good life. Technology's moved along so much in the past decade that any current camera would be a large step forward.

Hi

E:61 is a Sony error code for a problem with your lens.

Initializing the camera will put all the settings back to default which can sometimes fix a camera that will not power up or does not function properly in other ways. I love Sony models that have the "Reset" button either inside the battery compartment or on the bottom of the camera, I don't have a T70 on hand to tell you if you have a reset button or not, but if memory serves I do not think you do.

If 'Initializing' the camera does not work then the next step would be to try replacing the lens. If it's still under warranty try sending it in for service. If its not, either look for a parts camera on eBay, or let me know, I know where to get new OEM lenses for amazing prices.

Good luck from Darntoothysam com

I'm sorry to say that you'll probably be able to replace the 6MP camera with a better one for less than the cost of repair, even if attempting the repair yourself.

My LCD dose not display anything. If I take a picture nothing shows up at all only a black screen. Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H5 is about 2 and half years old. Please help and many thanks My shutter...


Unless it has recently been dropped or the screen cracked, the LCD power drive circuit has failed. Your batteries sound OK if it is taking pictures. 2 and a half years is not an unreasonable life for this camera. I would spend my money and time working toward a new one rather than repairs. Sometimes you can find one on Ebay for parts and may be worth a purchase but don't waste anything on a factory repair. Taking them apart and replacing components is not that difficult and procedures can be obtained online from digital camera REPAIR FORUMS.

Blurry Pictures


This camera should still be under warranty, so if it's not focussing correctly then let Sony fix it. Before doing so, check that you haven't accidentally left the camera set to macro (close-up focussing) mode.
