Question about Sony Mavica MVC-FD73 Digital Camera

2 Answers

Same problem as other person, do you have a solution?

I use(d) a Mavica FD73 for five years. I sell antique jewelry and silver online, and therefore need a camera with an exceptional macro mode. The FD73 provided me with superb close-up shots of the pieces I was photographing. However, two days ago I was photographing when the shutter button apparently just stopped working. Everything else on the camera works: playback mode, picture mode, the buttons all work. It's just that when I press the shutter, nothing occurs (i.e., the flash, if turned on, does not work; the green dot on the LCD does not appear; and of course, no picture is taken). Has anybody ever experienced this before, and if so, is it anything I can fix without paying ~200.00 to send it to Sony and have it fixed? (I can buy a replacement on eBay for that much, so I do not want to do that).

What are the best websites for buying professional jewellery?

I am not sure how to discern the overlap of best website shopping and professional jewelry sellers. But then I wouldn't know how to pick jewelry simply by viewing such on a website, either. That said:

Buying Jewelry

Top Jewelry Stores America Jewelers Engagement Rings America Top 10

The Best Online Jewelry Websites Top Ten Reviews

All shops selling jewelry are not equal, regardless of sales. If you examine a diamond ring from Zales under magnification and a diamond from other shops, you may find a difference in clarity, purity, color, etc. even if the ring sparkles nicely under shop lights.

What are the top online jewelry stores in China?

I'm not sure about India. But you may look for some good ones not only in India. There are tons of applications nowadays and you can find them on AppStore or PlayMarket.
Personally, I would like to draw your attention to modern applications which contain AR technology.

Benefits of AR app:
      • available 3D animated
      • product catalogs with AR
      • print and product augmentation
      • virtual touch and try-on platforms
      • beacons for "near me" stores or coupons/offers
      • image recognition for digital objects
      • ability to create showcases, limited only by your fantasy and budget, displaying jewelry items through the shopping glass along with extra information (size, weight, 4Cs, etc
      • interactive shop windows allowing to try on the 3D model of the product ("try before buy" scheme)
      • mirrors, screens, dressing rooms allowing people try on different rings or other jewelry goods
      • 24/7 access almost everywhere

      Check out the best examples of such here:

What to look for while purchasing the authentic silver jewelry for myself?

The points that you should look for while purchasing silver jewelry are:
1. Determine Authenticity and Quality of the silver
2. Look for the hallmark and for the word 'plated'.
3. If you are buying online, open the website then open the products page and read all the information about the product carefully.
4. Also real the guarantee and return policy of the company.
Purchasing online will be a better choice because there you can search for various different designer jewelry like Inspirational Jewelry, wedding jewelry, fashionable jewelry, and much more.

Mvc fd73 disc error

If this has happened with several floppy disks, then it is likely that the cameras' drive has failed. It is common in the FD73. There are several of that model on eBay right now. You can find them in Cameras and Photo, search fd73. A few are less than 50$, which is less than a replacement drive will cost to replace in your camera.
