Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-S40 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Viewing panel I have a new Cybershot, (birthday present in May 06)and I have only used it on two occassions. However, I tried to use it a few days ago and came across a problem to wich I have yet to find a solution. Since, I turned the camera on the very first time everything has been set to the manufacture's suggestion and to automatic settings. This has never been changed! However, when I took a photo the other day the resulting image on the veiwing panel was so small I could not really see the photo. Yet, sometimes the photo turns out the size of the whole screen, which it has in the past and as I think it should be. Yet, it seems every other photo or so turns out too microscopic to view. As I said no settings had been change I just turned it on and aimed. I find nothing in the manual to alleviate this problem. Can you help?

Lies all lies!. first turn on your camera and check what resolution the images are set to record at. turn your camera to picture taking mode and press the trash button once. then you will see the available resolutions you can shoot at. i recomend 4M since it is the highet quality the cam supports. make sure it is on that and your images will always be super massive. the sony DSC-S40 is way to simple and cheap to have a complex menu like other cameras, so i do not see how your problem is possible unless you were shooting a VGA res(640x480) which is very small and only good for places like myspace. on your camera screen when trying to view a 640x480 picture, you would only beable to hit the zoom button maybe once or twice. you cannot zoom in far like the larger resolution images because there is nothing to zoom into. this is the whole point of high resolution pictures. to be hig res, which allows larger images to be shows with clearity. i hope i answered the quiestion.

Cannot turn on palm tungsten e2, or turn it off


if you tries to turn it off and it turns back on after a few seconds.the birthda reminder in a contact record that spans past the new year (jan1)will trigger this.palm is aware of this paricular issue which is peculiar with the devices tungsten T3,T5*,E*,Ttreo 650* etc
for example if you create a contact record for a person which includes his/her name,phone number,adress and email adress.you also include his birthday,jan 2. you then choose the reminder to appear 7days before his birthday since this reminder will be triggered before january 1,the hand held may encounter problem not turning off.
solution
  • set the calendar to go off in the same calender year as the birth day(i.e on or after jan1)
  • in the example above changing the reminder to 1 day will prevent the issue
  • to change birthday reminder:open contact applicatio>open the record with the birhday>select edit>scroll to the birthday field> tap on the birthday>change the reminder.
  • like in the example above ,you change the number of days to 1
  • alternatively simply uncheck the birthday reminder box in order not to be reminded at all instead of changing the days if you dont want to be reminided at all.

Displays file error message when trying to playback still images and video footage


Did you take the card and insert into computer/device to view photos?

Viewing photos can alter the format of the photos thereby preventing your camera from reading them.

I viewed some photos and rotated a few photos and my camera no longer recognizes the format.

good luck

SonyDSC W55 shutter problems


A family member had the same problem with the exact same model. She called Sony and after a lot of hassling, convinced them to take it back and repair it. However the problem re-occurred after another few weeks of use. If you do a Google search on that model you will find similar stories about glitches and bugs. I bought her a Cannon for her birthday. Not a great solution but I think you should look into a new unit. Make sure to recycle the old camera at a facility that takes e-waste. Please comment on this thread if you feel the need to.
Take Care,
