Vibrating when switched ON

When I switch On the camera, it vibrates for a few seconds and then it becomes absolutely normal. It seems that the 'CCD holding frame' which has up-down/right- left movement is giving problem. I need to know how can I repair it?

    The camera vibrates when switched On and it used to take pictures before but now it is not. Besides it is heating up at the back side around LCD. The battery seems to be normal.

  • Rashid Hakim Nov 23, 2008

    I checked the CCD carrier for any damage, but found perfect, so I assembled it back. Still the camera vibrates when switched ON and will take pictures but now it won't release on AF mode. It won't even try to focus. IOs this problem related to the vibration problem or it happened because I must have made some mistake while assembling? Don;t know what's happening!!!

  • Rashid Hakim Nov 25, 2008

    Removing and re-fixing the 'CCD carrier' has not made any difference.I have a good skill in handling such repairs, and so I am quite confident about the job perfectly done. As suggested before by someone, I can't find the setting in the menu do de-activate vibration. I am not sure if it is there or have I missed out?

Dear Sir/Madam,

There is considerable shutter lag with point and shoot digitals and you have to be sure to hold still for long enough for the camera to actually take the picture. This will take up to a full second. Watch the little green light (usually) on the back of your camera. Hold the button half-way down and wait until it lights up steady instead of blinking. This means the auto-focus operation is complete. Press the button the rest of the way down and hold it there for about a second to allow time for the shutter to actually take the picture. k this link for more information


Thanks
Good luck

This may be the image sensor cleaning system. It's the anti-dust technology. You can disable it on cofiguration menu. Good luck!

    The camera can be configured so that when the camera is switched on, and when the camera is turned off, it will automatically run a brief ultrasonic vibration routine on the sensor unit. Alternatively, the vibration routine can be engaged manually through a menu selection, and the camera can also be set to not vibrate at startup and shutdown.

I bought a new sony T-300 cam 2008 aug...no probs up to one year.then it start vibrating after taking some photos...........now the same condition.some time it may work properly....then it will again...


It's a stabilizer problem, not a CCD problem, a well known problem for many Sony cameras. The stabilizer or even the whole lens unit has to be replace. You can find some used lens for T300 easily on eBay, but you can't be sure this problem won't happen again in a day, week, month or a year. I would suggest replacing the lens at the Sony service center, but if it's expensive there - look for another camera.

Motorola T6550 pair.


I can see where this feature can seem somewhat inconsistent. But if you think of it like a phone ringing, it is easier to understand. Once you have answered the phone, the phone stops ringing. And the person who called you never experiences a ring on their end.

VibraCall® Alert
Page 26: VibraCall is a vibrating alert that notifies you that your radio is receiving a message. This is useful in noisy environments. When the alert is on, the radio
vibrates once every 30 seconds when you receive a message on the channel and
code you set.
• To turn vibrating alerts on, press menu until the vibrating radio symbol is displayed, then press the plus (+) button to display the letter Y for Yes.
• To turn vibrating alerts off, press menu until the vibrating radio symbol is displayed, then press the minus (-) button until the minus symbol (-) is displayed.
