What is the damage?

When a digital camera is dropped, often the internal electronics are damaged?
When it is obvious on the outside of the case, then most warranty repair shops won't even crack it open unless you are willing to pay.....as camera warrantities do NOT cover this type of 'non-functioning'

Sorry...but I too have learned this lesson the hard way.

It's possible to damage any electronic device by dropping it, if you drop it from high enough.

Tip

A tip and suggestion on using any digital camera.


One of the most two important tips in my experience with digital cameras and the use of them is in the following.
When using a digital camera always take the time to put the hand cord on your wrist. This will help to insure that the camera will not be dropped when using any where, including over or near water. By the way, using any digital camera near water should be done carefully. Water is extremely damaging to the delicate internal parts.
When the digital camera is not in use, always be sure to put the camera in a padded case. I know that it takes more time than dropping into a purse or pocket, but if you take the extra time, you will enjoy your digital camera a lot longer.
By dropping a camera into a purse, you will take the chance of the unit being damaged by other items and possibly turning on from pressure of some item on the on button. This can cause the camera's lens to extend and since it is in a compact area, it can become damaged.
By putting the digital camera into a pocket, you take the chance of the camera falling out and being damaged. It is surprising how many cameras I have had which have been dropped and damaged.

Turned camera on gives error message to turn off and back on again . No matter how many times we turn off and on it won't clear the message. Took battery out.put back in. Message still there. Also len


Camera was probably dropped. Motorized autofocus lens was probably damaged when dropped. It doesn't get more of a big deal than this. Depending on age of camera, it may be a ''wipe-out.''

Ps... I'm saying ''probably'' dropped because I didn't see it happen, but this is precisely what happens when they are dropped. It doesn't take much of a ''jolt'' to do the damage, and there is usually never any external damage.

Dropped the camera yesterday.There was no apparent damage, but it vibrates loudly when switched on, and the camera shake warning is constantly flashing. The camera seems to work OK, but I'm concerned that...


Hi,

The drop would have caused internal shock damage to the camera possibly loosening some internal parts.

Even though the camera appears to be working i would suggest you take the camera to a reputable repair center to have it checked over.

If you continue to use the camera in its current state you could cause more damage to the camera leading to large repair bill.

I wouldn't recommend taking the camera apart as there are intricate parts inside.


Kind regards.

Camera wont turn on


If the camera was dropped, the circuit board or some other part inside was probably damaged. The camera would require factory level service. First verify what you paid for the camera, and then get an estimate. You may find it more worth while to replace the camera.

As for myself, I dropped a digital camera, and the lens was damaged. The repair cost was over 80% of the cost of a new camera.

Dropped sony camera randomly turns on batery is


The drop likely damaged the lens tube (housing) or jarred the zoom mechanism off of its track. Either condition causes the camera to shut down to prevent further damage. There is no safe DIY fix, but the camera can be professionally repaired. Contact Sony through their web site or visit a local camera shop (not the department store) and get a repair estimate -- you will need to decide if the camera is worth the cost of the repair.

The camera was dropped with the lens open. Now it


Bad news - there is no DIY fix for lens damage. The drop likely damaged the lens tube (housing) or jarred the zoom mechanism off of its track. If you attempt to fix it yourself you are likely to worsen the damage, so the camera will need professional repair.

Camera was dropped and will not turn on. battery


You've likely damaged the lens tube (housing) or jarred the zoom mechanism off of its track. Both problems will cause the camera to shut down to avoid further damage, and both will require professional repair.
