Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-T5 Digital Camera

2 Answers


When the camera is powered on the LCD viewfinder turns white. But the camera functions normal. Can take photographs, save the photos, retrieve them. But since the viewfinder is complete white, you have to take the photos blindly. after some times the LCD went black. Now the camera is on without LCD. Please help. Chandana

I am from sri lanka and bought the camera from korea. There is no way that I can send it back to korea. The local agent for sony refused to repair it fearing that they would not have spare parts. Therefore will you please send me a repair manual for me to try out to open the camera and see. Now the camera is in a state that with even a fully charged battery, does not power up. Battery shows 4 v on multimeter when measured. I am very poor guy to opt for a new one. please help. chandana

This is an LCD fault - initially I suspect a connector failed or loosened to the main board now the tube has blown or become disconnected too. What to do- If it is a new camera,you may be able to get it replaced under warranty - I cannot say more then that as you did not specify where in the world you reside. If you have a repair facility near by- then that's the place to go. If non of there are available to you then you have little to lose in opening the camera to see it is is indeed screen connectors- because the alternative is to purchase a new camera. However take a look at this list Also Contact Technical Support on the Sony Website

Sony DSC-W5 camera and the LCD screen is blank (white)

Remove the Battery pack from the Camera then press and hold the power button for 30 seconds.

Next, reinsert the Battery pack in the Camera and try to turn it ON. Make sure that the Battery pack is fully charged. If the LCD remains white then the LCD screen needs to be serviced or replaced.

My Sony Camera screen when i turn it on is white & has a pink line going diagonally through the screen

A multicolor vertical line may display on the camera LCD screen if there is glare on the subject being photographed. Avoid photographing very shiny surfaces that reflect excessive amount of light into the camera lens. Follow the procedure below to resolve this issue:

  2. On the camera, move the FOCUS AUTO/MANUAL switch to AUTO .
  3. Set the PLAY/STILL/MOVIE selector to MOVIE or STILL .
  4. Press the WHITE BALANCE button until the white balance is set to AUTO (no indicator).
  5. Record the video to new media.
  6. NOTE: If the issue is still unresolved after completing all of the troubleshooting steps, service may be required.

White screen

Turn the camera off, then holding all the buttons in the circle on the back of the camera (up, down, left right and select buttons) with your thumb, turn the camera on. This may take a couple of tries, but it does work as I have the same problem on my camera.
