Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-S40 Digital Camera

1 Answer

LCD screen is not producing a normal picture screen

For example I turn on my camera, and I decide to take a picture of my computer. The screen's image is moving when the computer is still. When I take pictures of anyone, it turns out looking like radiation pictures, all yellowy and orangey hues. What is the problem?

Check the pictures on your PC. If there is no change then the CCD unit is a problem. Please contact the nearest Authorized Sony Service. Arpi

Oops i put d3000 and meant to put D5000. I dropped my camera and cannot view images on screen anymore. I can look at them via the computer, so camera still works just can't view.


Do you see anything at all on the screen? For example, if you press the MENU button, do you see the menu? If you press the playback button, do you see the pictures you've already taken?

How to capture best picture


That depends on what you're taking a picture of, and on what you want that picture to say to the viewer. The best procedure for taking a portrait won't be the best procedure for taking a landscape, for example. You probably won't want to take a picture of a grandfather the same way you'd take a picture of his granddaughter, either.
That's just the technical side. You also have full control of the artistic side. You decide on the camera position, the time of day, vertical or horizontal orientation, etc. Sometimes you can reposition the subject, sometimes you can't (buildings, trees, and mountains are a little difficult to move). You decide what's in the picture and what's not. You decide whether the picture should be bright or dark.
The camera is just a tool. You're the photographer.

My dad has a fuji finepix a500 camera. lately, he's noticed that some of the images on the screen are showing instead as a blue screen with "read error". how can we fix this/what has...


What happens on your camera is related to the pc modifying the image file, hence the camera can't read it as they use different formats to write and read the images.
Can you see the pictures stored on your father's camera on the PC? Because if that's not possible, then the camera has an internal problem and you might have to consider taking it to a repair shop, or even consider buying a new one.

WHEN CAMERA IS TURNED ON THE SCREEN WILL SHOW PAST PICTURES FINE BUT WHEN THE SELECTOR SWITCH IS MOVED TO EITHER TAKE A NEW PICTURE OR TO THE MOVIE MODE THE DISPLAY SCREEN IS BLACK WITH LIKE PURPLISH LINES...


From your description, it sounds to me like the image sensor within the camera went bad.
This can happen from a few things:
  • Camera dropped
  • Moisture
  • Rattling around in a bag or suitcase
  • Knocking into things while in the pocket
  • Leaving it powered on in the pocket
  • Prolonged exposure to bright lights
Try taking a picture while the camera is in picture mode even if you can't see what it is of, then either review the pictures to see if what you just took shows up without issues or transfer it to your computer.
If you can see a picture afterwards when reviewing your images, then it sounds like the firmware may have gotten corrupted. In this case, you should update the cameras firmware using this LINK.
If you cannot see the image you just took, or it has those same purple lines, then it is a hardware problem and can only be fixed by replacing the camera or by sending it in for repair.
Even if you cannot see the image you just took, I would suggest going ahead with the firmware update to see if it works.

When I take a picture with my 18-55 on a d3100 I hear and see through my visor that the image moves and a sound like a click, many seconds after taking the picture. It seems like it's still open and closes...


Hi,

Giving the lens your using and depending on the shooting mode your in. I assume your shooting in a low light situation. The lens you have is not good for low light shooting because the F-stop is only 3.5 at widest, so minimal light gets in so the camera decides what speed to set it at to close the shutter. for example shooting in the school gym or church, the camera speed will be 1/20 second or even up to 1/2 second to get enough lighting into the sensor so the image is properly expose but for you to have a sharp image you will need to shoot on a tripod.

Without tripod and just handheld will create blurry images. I would suggest you bump up the ISO setting to minimum to 3200 or higher that way the camera speed will be higher and reduce handheld shakes that will create blurry images. But remember, increase ISO will increase in image grain.

That is why I suggest you invest into a 17-50mm F2.8 lens for low-lighting or 50mm f1.8 lens.

I hope this helps

A few questions for you

If you take the picture and move it to a computer do the lines show up on the picture when it's on the computer screen?
If yes you probably need a new CCD. A CCD take what the lens see and turns it into a digital image.

If the picture comes out fine it may be a loose cable or bad LCD screen.

Either way http://www.precisioncamera.com can fix it for you, they are a bit expensive but do a great job.

My pictures display poor image quality on the screen or when you print them out.


PhotoPC 800 captures images in 24-bit color (16.7 million colors). Your pictures will not display maximum image quality if your monitor or computer's video controller doesn't support this color depth. You may need to upgrade your system to achieve the best possible image quality. If your pictures look better on the screen than when you print them out, you may need to upgrade your printer. An EPSON Stylus ink jet printer, for example, provides excellent image quality. If you used drag and drop to insert your pictures, they may appear grainy. Try importing them into your documents instead.
