Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-T1 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Unable to focus camera.

I have made thousands of good pictures with this camera over the past 2 or 3 years without problems. Usually carrying it in my pocket. Recently I removed it from by pocket and attempted to frame a picture on the LCD an all that was visible were fine line streaks and no focus, though the object can be made out slightly. I checked other pictures already taken and they showed up good on the screen. I reset camera and problem did not go away. Does anyone have an idea on the problem and how much it would cost to fix?

    I have what appears to be a stuck shutter. When I take pictures they are over exposed and often show faint images of objects that I have pointed the camera at just moments before taking a picture. If I set the camera to burst, the first shot is over exposed but the subsequent shots are fine. te video is also unaffected by this issue. I am fairly handy, if I could instructions/steps to fixing the stuck shutter I'm fairly certain I could make this repair myself.

The common cause of lines across the picture is a stuck shutter. This will cause over exposed pictures, out of focus, with lines across them. If the problem is infact a stuck shutter it will require full disassembly to fix, which will be somewhere between $100 and $200 to fix depending on where you send it. An image sensor failure, or focus motor failure can also cause simular problems - but they also cost simular amounts to fix. David Millier Advance Camera Repair

When I import from the camera to iphoto, duplicates of every picture import


I have the same problem!!! Every single time I import from my Nikon D90 I get duplicates of each photo on Iphoto. It never happened in 4 years, just recently does happen. Is it a setting from camera or from Iphoto? How to avoid this, without having to create separate folders on desktop as mentioned above. I just want to plug the USB and download on Iphoto without doing anything else. It gets frustrating as I usually download thousands of photos each month.

My Olympus x-42 doesn't take a picture. View from monitor is perfect but when I take a picture, all there is is a white screen


Some symptoms of a defective CCD (Charge Coupled Device) include distorted images or abnormal colors, scratchy purple lines, blank or black pictures, and/or black videos with good sound being recorded on the camera's flash card.

When a picture is taken, the CCD is struck by light coming through the camera's lens. Each of the thousands or millions of tiny pixels that make up the CCD convert this light into electrons. The number of electrons, usually described as the pixel's accumulated charge, is measured, then converted to a digital value.

Canon Powershot A570 IS Problem- Photos deleted when new folder was created?


I would seek professional advice, there is recovery software out there that are very good, you have tried two, if there is any chance to recover more you need to talk to someone that is experienced in these matters. Best buys may be able to help and worth a try, a camera repair store would be another option.

I have recently go a canon 550D but the pictures have a lot of coloured noise in it which is very very obvious. Its not only in low light conditions but even in outdoors shoots.I have not got such coloured...


Hi Sam,
This is what may be happening. First of all, that is a EXCEPTIONAL camera. Getting a lot of noise in a photo would signify a defective CCD or a component within the imaging circuit having failed. IT'S NOT YOU.
Solid State Electronics, and digital cameras definitely fall into that category, if they are going to fail, will fail within the first 90 days or so. Good rule of thumb. If they get past that point, they will usually go for many years without a failure, if taken care of.
It appears to me that this one slipped through quality control cracks of Canon.
I would contact Canon's customer support for an exchange.

To my Sanyo rep, Here is my delimma! The Sanyo digital camera that I have will not charge... it has only been fully charged twice in the past three years. I am not a picture fanatic by any means, but...


If you've not used it in three years, it is likely that the batteries are dead. Replace them

Casio Exilim Z40 - Lens Error Message


You can try to "fix" this problem by holding down the shutter release button as soon as the camera power up.If this does not work you will need to replace the lens assembly. This should only be done by a qualified tech.
This is usually caused by one of two circumstances. (1) The user dropped the camera while the lens was extended causing a mechanical failure. (2) The lens attempts to extend while in a pouch or pocket without the user's knowledge. This usually happens when the user is carrying the camera with the battery in. When/if the REC button or power button is pressed accidentally, the lens will attempt to extend but can't. This causes the servo motors to "smoke".
