Question about Sanyo Cameras

2 Answers

I have a Sanyo VPC C6EX 6megapixel camcorder which, when switched on, immediately takes a photo in 'camera' mode without any prompting. After that, it will not take a photograph in normal operation. I have moved the switch between REC and PLAY and tried both camera and video modes, but neither will respond when buttons pressed. Switch the camera off, and then back on again, and it still takes a picture automatically without warning....! Indeed, the camera seems to be 'confused'?...even in MENU mode........

Check if any of the button on your camera is remaning slightly pressed internally.if it is pressed make it proper .also tap the sides of your camera slightly for two minutes.then ON the camera and check out.
if this does not helps.it the technical issue and needs to be checked internally for any circuit default.

Do you have warranty on the camera? if not you can get a free repair estimate from www.adavancecamera.com/repair 

You can try updating the firmware for the camera and see if that helps

Well i have a Sanyo J1 Xacti Digital camera and i lost the CD with the software to download the pictures from camera to Computer. Is there any site where i can get download it? Thanks


Try Sanyo.com - look for support button.

Most newer computers with newer operating systems will detect a camera/camcorder when connected to USB. Have you tried it without the disk?

I have an older Xacti that records to SD card. You can use a flash card reader to transfer files without Sanyo software.

Hi, I have a camera, a Sanyo VPC-T1060 and it's having some problems. It turns on, flashes, takes photos apparently, but the LCD screen won't work. It turns white when I turn it on and when I take a photo...


Try to remove the memory card if used, and blowing out the connectors in the camera cavity with compressed air (to remove dust if any).

Make sure the contacts are clean. If necessary try another memory card.

I'm not sure about the lcd screen, except it may require service from sanyo.com.

Sanyo vpc e890 when I go to take a photo the viewer is all black and when I take the photo it's also coming up black.. I can still view my GOOD photo's that actually took the picure but recently every new...


I have a simular problem with my Sanyo. I know this sounds weird, but I have noticed if you shake the camera a little, the photo viewer comes back and pics can be taken. Also.. there is a spot that says 3x Digital zoom on the top of the camera, I also noticed if I put a little prssure on that spot with my fingers, the viewer comes back. I don't know if something might be loose, but thought maybe this information would help you.

Is there any free software I can download to retrieve photos on the sanyo VPC 5500 no memory card"


Sadly not, when you format the card or memory, it wipes it clean off the system. Unlike Hard Drives, there is no magnetic trace from which you could reconstruct the data. Sorry it's not good news :(
