DSC P200, taking pictures

I've had my camera for over a year, and recently taking pictures has become difficult. First i had to hold the button for ten seconds, but now it won't take at all. the screen works fine, and everything is coming through. but when i go to take a picture it will focus and then sit. same goes for taking movies. does anyone have any suggestions on what the problem could be?

How to reset sony cyber shot dsc-p200


On page 14 of the user manual for this camera (click here for manual), it shows that there is a small reset button hidden under the battery compartment door.
On page 74 of the user manual, it states:

"Press the RESET button using a pointed object, then turn on the power (reset).

All the settings including date and time are cleared."

This should reset your camera. If you have any additional question, please reply back and I'll be happy to assist.

Thank you for using FixYa and Happy New Year

Possible that the display is faulty,and it will be needed to check inside the camera for working voltage,so i would advise that you contact sony service for estimation and spares.

My LCD dose not display anything. If I take a picture nothing shows up at all only a black screen. Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H5 is about 2 and half years old. Please help and many thanks My shutter...

Unless it has recently been dropped or the screen cracked, the LCD power drive circuit has failed. Your batteries sound OK if it is taking pictures. 2 and a half years is not an unreasonable life for this camera. I would spend my money and time working toward a new one rather than repairs. Sometimes you can find one on Ebay for parts and may be worth a purchase but don't waste anything on a factory repair. Taking them apart and replacing components is not that difficult and procedures can be obtained online from digital camera REPAIR FORUMS.

CCD sensor is outputting noise and has to be replaced. Sony should repair free of charge even if your camera is out of guarantee.
