Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-F828 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Pictures appear with vertical or horizontal lines, very white

In the "M" (green auto camera icon) mode, can take pics inside with no problem using flash. when in direct sunlight, on "Auto" (green auto camera icon) mode takes pictures at are either too white, have lines (horiz or vert) and just come out real bad. Have tried "reset" but nothing improves
................................................................................................
I have had this camera since 2003. Bought brand new in MO, USA. First thing was that the camera/lens hinge became loose. I am on contract in South America. Took it to local SONY service and came back appearing with the problem above.
Have tried to take it back to them for a soultion but get the answer "since not bought from SONY Argentina we cant touch it"
Question: if the problem mentioned above was not there before I took it to them and only APPEARED AFTER I had the hinge "adjusted" why do these d**s now say they cannot resolve the problem that they obviously caused? Why did they take the camera in the first place?
DOUBLE STANDARDS!!!.
SONY after service SUCKS. I now am in a South American country without a camera/no service from SONY, and a big investment in a once damn good camera after SONY Argentina got their hands on it.
They have washed their hands after screwing up my camera.

    Same problem here. Initially it only happened when zooming 2.5x and greater. Now it just happens all the time.

In my opinion, it is just matter of 2 ribbon wires that are not plugged properly at lens section, coming from main board (LCD section) because to fix / tight a loosed Hinge screws, above said 2 ribbon wires (flexible boards) need to be remove on lens side.

You may have the white balance set incorrectly. If so, set it to "auto white balance".

Outside pictures are too light


As a professional PGA Photographer, I never shoot on Auto anything...Manual only, digital cameras have a habit of giving the CCD unit the wrong reading...also, it sounds like your battery is not strong enough for that camera....try a higher Amp...instead of 1500mAh...try a 1800mAh ....wish you luck...you sound like a good photographer.

Horizontal lines in pictures


hi If u find that the lines are vertical that is often a result of taking pictures of very bright subjects. This is  called vertical streaking. If the lines are horizontal lines there is probably something wrong with your sensor and you should have the camera looked at by an authorized service technician , and they will send it out to have it looked at. hope this helps!
thank u rate me!!!

Lines appear on photo's.


Hey Tia Cindy,
If the lines are vertical that is often a result of taking pictures of very bright subjects. This is aberration is called vertical streaking. If the lines are horizontal lines there is probably something wrong with your sensor and you should have the camera looked at by an authorized service technician such as bringing it to a Geek Squad® precinct in a Best Buy™ store, and they will send it out to have it looked at. I hope this helps!

Canon 20D strong blue cast to pictures


You probably have the White Balance set to a setting other a
than "Auto White Balance" (AWB). On the top of the camera, above the exterior LCD panel, there is the "AF-WB" button. Turn the camera on--past "on" to the bent line. Press the AF-WB button once. On the left side of the exterior LCD panel there is a vertical, reticular box with the symbol of the selected setting for WB. Normally, the setting should be set to AWB. If it is not, turn the command dial at the back of the camera until "AWB" is showing. Try shooting again-the color should be better.

In the "auto" modes (green box, portrait, landscape, etc) the AWB is automatically set. In the "advanced" modes (P,Tv, etc) the WB is manually set for whatever light source you are using. The command dial may have been accidently turned to different setting. Hope this helps.

Blurry white image when pics are taken during broad daylight


Try first to reset your camera. Press the menu button, go over to setup, go down to reset, press the right arrow, highlight reset and press set. Don't worry it won't erase any of the pictures on your memory card. If that doesn't work you can try and manually set the white balance on your camera and I would recommend sending it into repairs if that doesn't work since it's taking nighttime pictures fine. :)

Hoizontal lines in images


The problem is faulty CCD sensor ( this device converts light into image ) so faulty sensor means either poor quality pics or no pics at all. Have sensor replaced and camera will work fine.

Looks like over exposure


Sounds like your camera is in manual mode. Manual mode is where you can change the settings like shutter speed, ISO, the appature size. If the appature is to wide (small number) and the shutter speed is to slow (low number like 1/20) you will have an over exsposed picture. You probobly need to put the camera back into auto mode. You may have switched the modes on accedent. The modes usualy say Auto, Macro, Manual, and movie. These are all the presets or the camera modes on your camera. If the camera is set right it will take good pictures inside but be white or over exsposed when taking any outside. Go into the menu and scroll over to the little red camera icon. See if its in manual or auto. Another thing to check is "EV" if its at +6 set it to 0 and try it if you cant find auto mode. S
