Re: I dropped my camera and now the pictures are funny...

Mine did the same thing and after reading the best answer i decided to drop the camera again and try to unstick the shutter so i just turned my camera on and dropped it about 4 ft on to the floor and it worked just fine also if you look at the lens on the camera you can tell if the shutter is stuck because it should be a circle shape.  This really did work for me even though it sounds crazy

Re: I dropped my camera and now the pictures are funny...

What you describe is the symptom of a stuck shutter. The shutter is inside the lens and must close in order for the image sensor to properly record the image. Yours is stuck open, and that is why you see the lines across your images. When a stuck shutter results from an impact it usually requires full disassembly and manual re-setting of the delicate shutter blades. This problem would require professional repair. Unfortunately damage from an impact is not covered by your factory warranty. You can find good repair services on the internet who can service your camera. David Millier Advance Camera Repair

Wont turn on

It seems as though you broke the camera through the accidental dropping on the floor. I can imagine that your parents may be upset, as it seems you and they are are responsible for the damage. You just need to ask the owner what they would like you to do to make things right. Digital cameras are not expensive these days, and you should be able to get a replacement for less than $150 or so. You should get them another Sony, and pick one with a megapixel rating that is at least as high as the one you broke.

If you are lucky, they may say that it was old anyway, and that they were going to buy another soon. (And not ask you to replace it.)

Good luck!

Focus error

Check out this link:

After the basics (cleaning the lens, replacing the batteries, etc.), try dropping the camera on a carpeted area from about 2-3 feet. It worked for my Fuji A500 and 90% of the responders on the link. Everything on the web said it would cost ~$100 to fix. I was in the process of researching new cameras to buy and had nothing to lose by dropping it on the floor.
The error may be caused by debris in the zoom mechanism preventing it from working. Dropping the camera loosens the debris and voila!
