Hey flacko724,
You should be able to go to any Best Buy™ store and they should be able to pull up the extended service plan which I am assuming you purchased from Best Buy™. If the store cannot find the service plan you should then try calling 1-888-Best Buy™. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.

SOURCE: what is the best setting for taking indoor action

There is no good solution for this. There's only a limited amount of light indoors.

First, you need the widest aperture you can get on your lens. You can get this by going to the Aperture-priority (A) mode.

Even so, you're shutter speed will most likely be too slow to freeze the action. You can combat this somewhat by raising the ISO. This will increase the noise, but I'd prefer a noisy picture to a blurry picture.

That still probably won't get you great pictures. Since you probably can't rig more floodlights in the gym, you'll be limited to using your flash if the action is taking place close enough to you (and if flash is permitted).

You can gain an additional stop or two with faster lenses, but such lenses can cost more than $2000. Unless _Sports Illustrated_ is paying for your pictures, that's probably not an option at this time.

I realize this doesn't really solve your problem. Unfortunately, as I stated up front, there is no good solution.

SOURCE: password problem to change setting for my Sony Cyber Shot camera

With the camera off hold the Zoom to the 'W' side. While holding the zoom press the play button, when the camera powers on it will ask if you want to reset. Press ok.

The camera will then ask you for a 4 digit reset code. The code is:

7669

Have fun!

SOURCE: The date does not show

It appears this is not possible on a Mac - but only on a Windows PC. Check the manual in this link. On manual page 101gb & 102gb, you'll find instructions one how to install and use PMB or "Picture Motion Browser". Details on Pg 102gb indicate that saving and printing pictures with a date is possible.

I hope this helped! Good luck!

Disk error


Hello anuhera, This is a very common problem with the cd400 camera, I have learned the hard way that Sony's recommendation to use their [expensive] media was more than just self interest. There are a lot of quality issues with CD media. As my camera has aged it is more and more intolerant of off-brand media. This is true even though I have not shot more than a 1000 images with the camera. While I can plan on getting the c:13:01 error with unbranded disks, I can still use the Sony disks without much if any problem. To get your pictures back, go to www.cdroller.com and download their recovery software, worked great for me. Let me know if you need any additional info. Best regards, nightdiver

Lost files on my mvc-cd400?


I purchased my CD-400 when it hit the market and have shot thousands of great images with it... all things considered. Maybe 3 or 4 times over the years have I had that problem and have failed at every attempt to resolve the issue. Someone suggested it was the brand of CD I was using. I rejected that, because I by disks they way they come: in packs. One other thought: ALL these digital cameras are nothing but scaled down computers, and you know computers. Every once in a while they get a wedgie you can't, well, you know. I know it's a hassle, but if you've shot some very important images: wedding, super-shots on vacation, etc., USB those puppies as soon as you get back to a pc. Maybe you won't lose all.
