Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-P73 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Blurry pictures We bought a DSC-P73 Cybershot camera 2 years ago and it worked fine. Now with the birth of our second grandchild 60% of the pictures are blurry. It really doesn't matter who holds the camera either. What can we do ??? Confused and frustrated! Joe Canuk

Re: Blurry pictures

Hello Joe Canuk, please contact the nearest Sony dealer/service. One possibble cause can be the CCD unit. Best regards, Arpad

Hi. i have sony w120. its not new, i bought it cca 3 years ago. I didnt use is for a quite a while (but my family did), so few days ago, i realized when i take pictures, pictures are somehow blurry,...

Please go to Setup menu and select Initialize option to reset camera to default settings that might solve blurry picture problem, if that does not help then its technician job to adjust focus of camera.

Sony DSC-P73 auto power off in picture mode


You may try using any another compatible Battery pack in the Camera to ensure if the issue is not causing due to the Battery. Actually, when the Camera is switched to the "Picture or Camera" mode then the power consumption increases spontaneously. So, if the Batter is not holding sufficient charge to cater the power need of the Camera in the Camera mode then it'll automatically turn off. However, if the issue persists with spare Battery also then you may try resetting the Camera to the original factory settings by pressing and holding the Reset button for 30 seconds. Otherwise, it's required to get the Camera to resolve the hardware issues.

Sony Cybershot dsc-p73 dropped

I also dropped this camera from waist high and the lens was stuck out and would not retract or let me do anything. I ended up having it sent to Sony to replace the lens and it cost me $200. I paid $300 for the camera to begin with but to me this was the BEST camera I'd ever had and was worth it. Before repairing it, I bought a new Sony Cybershot DSC-W80 since the original one I had dropped was no longer available. I was NOT pleased with the quality of the new camera at all and it was supposed to be better than the one I dropped. That's when I decided it was worth repairing the broken one and worth the cost.

Sony dsc cyber-shot-P73 4.1 megapixel

You may already be doing this, I don't know, but on most newer cameras, you have to push the "take picture" button down half way to let it focus then press it the rest of the way to take the picture. It wouldn't hurt trying to see if that works.

Sony DSC T-5 Cybershot

I called Sony, did what they said, and now my camera is working just more blurry pics. Go to menu, click arrow right, click arrow down 3x till you get to "Setup 1," click arrow right scroll down to "Initialize," click to right, select OK, press center button. This initialized everything back to default settings and now I don't have blurry pictures anymore.
