Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H2 Digital Camera

1 Answer

My camera will not immediately take a picture.

Hello, my camera (Sony Cyber-shot DSC H2) will not take a picture after it has focused. It beeps like it is ready but nothing happens. I've tried changing a lot of the settings in the set-up menu with no real results. It also does not seem to make a difference which picture setting it is on. I cant tell you how many pictures I have lost from this problem and I'm suprised I haven't thrown this thing through a wall! Again, it seems as if everything is ready to go, I hear the beeps and nothing happens. Please tell me you have a fix for this problem.

The beep and no shutter action is usually because the auto focus is not focused. If you are using a zoom lens try backing up or unzooming a little.

I have a Sony Cyber shot DSC-H2. When the shutter button is depressed halfway, it does not focus as it should do. Is there a simple solution to this?


The Sony DSC-H2 and DSC-H5 have a terrible shutter button design and the tiny little "bubble" that is responsible for the "half press focus" can be easily damaged.

The button you press while taking the picture came off.


The Sony DSC-H2 and DSC-H5 have a terrible shutter button design and Sony will not admit that it's a design problem. The post for the shutter button is so thin that it snaps in half very easily!!
