There could be two things causing this problem.

1- some dirt somehow got on the outside of side of the lense. So the lense could not fully retract or open out. As a result you can take any picture. If the lense comes out even a little bit, try to pull it out NOT too hard a few times. If it does not retract, turn the camera off and push the lense in (up and down) NOT too hard foe a few times. If the camera opened up 100% or retracted 100%, your camera should be back to normal.

2- If you dropped the camera, some mechanical part of the lense is broken or dislocated or the cable may have come loose. In this case you need to take out the lense from the camera and inpect it for broken pieces or loose cable. clean the outside of the lense and push the lense in and out a few times. Put the lense back on and your camera would be back to normal.

Good luck!!!!!!

SOURCE: Can Sony DSC N2 digital camera be used as web

1. Sony digital still cameras are not supported for use as a Webcam. To video conference, use a dedicated Webcam or video camera that supports this function.
The MHS-PM1 and MHS-CM1 Webbie HD™ MP4 cameras support video conferencing.
Refer the link:

2. The camera is not supported for use as a webcam.
Refer:
http://www.kb.sony.com/selfservice/microsites/search.do?cmd=displayKC&docType=kc&externalId=C354060&sliceId=1&docTypeID=DT_KNOWLEDGEARTICLES_1_1&dialogID=76686495&stateId=0%200%20180270382

Work Around:

The only way that it may work is if you were to connect the camera to the computer via an analog video cable (yellow RCA cable) and/or audio (red and white RCA cables) for those models where audio signal transfer is also available. computer must have the ability of accepting input from these analog RCA plug(s).


To connect a digital camera for video conferencing follow this procedure:

1. Plug in the AC Adapter and set the Power/Function dial to Camera.

2. Connect an A/V cable from the Video OUT on the camera to the Video IN on the computer.

3. Within the third party software, select Composite as the input source.

You may also use Net Meeting Software that is preinstalled in the Windows Operating System.

SOURCE: My DSC N2 keeps saying

Hello

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

Hope the advise is useful.

Regards
Andrea

Having problems with my DSC-N2. Screen is starting to take only dark pics even with the flash and sometimes there redish lines across the screen and also comes out in the pics


It sounds like a problem with the CCD imaging sensor itself. Most likely you will want to consider replacing the camera. You do have the option to contact sony and get an estimate. You can also contact/send it to a independent camera repair company and they commonly offer free estimates.
Here is sony's contact info:

How do i adjust image size since my mem card ca only store 10 pics only


Dear Friend,
All reputed company supply User Manual or Instruction Booklet along with their product to make the customer understand how to use the product. Most of the features are explained by illustrations. Make a habit to go threw such book and liturature supplied with the product.
In your case:
  1. Set the mode selector to Camera positionsony_baroda_4.jpg
  2. Turn on camera and press the Dustbin symbolsony_baroda_5.jpg The Image Size setup item appears
  3. Select the desired image size with up / down arrow keysony_baroda_6.jpg The image size is set.
    After the setting is completed, press
    (Image Size). The Image Size setup item
    disappears from the screen.
    • The image size value selected here is preserved
    even when the camera is turned off.
Keep the size lowest or VGA when quality of the picture is not very important. To get best resolution you may choose larger size, at the cost of more memory usage and less number of pictures.
I hope this answer is useful to you and you will like to visit us again for your query.
Thanking you for using Fixya!

i had that same problem. check your image size, the camera cant zoom if the image size is set to 3.1M or 2.8M(3:2)

how to change image size:
turn on camera and leave it in camera mode (picture taking mode)
press the delete/image button
change image size until camera zooms again
VGA gives the biggest zoom range

i hope this helps

Image Quality decrease


Um ok. first off, chill with the images being described in inches. The DSC-S40 is way too simple to get lost with. You only have 2 options to play with. One is the resolution which you want to be as high as possible unless you have some special reason for it not to be. Two is you have 2 image quality settings to choose from(Fine and Standard). choose "fine" of course for best results. yes the files size will be a bit larger, but you get the best possible image. Remeber, this is considered a cheap camera, so you want the most it can offer.

Now about the file size anomalies. Dont worry about it. Here is the only conclusion I can come up with that sounds logical. .JPG and most "compressed" image types will never be the same size if taken from a camera unless the same exact picture is shot 2 times in a row very fast witout the camera moving. files size on a compressed image depends on the amount of color variations the camera has to render into a file. The more color variations, the more data the .JPG file contains. It is natural for file sizes from a camera to differ. If you set your camera at 4M and take a picture, and then you set it to 3M and try to take the same picture again thinking it will save space, in theory this is true, but remeber how "compressed" images are rendered. You may have had only the slightest difference of light change on the next pitcture you took . This can have a significant impact on the file size, and can result in a lower res image being bigger in file size than the higher res image. Now, if you are talking a huge difference like 3M@1500kb yet 4M gives you 500kb, then you either have it set to "standard" quality, or you are really lost in this stuff.

But anyway, I hope this is plenty of info. And makes plenty of sense to anyone who understands compressed images.
