Sony cybershot camera was accidently washed in the washer. it will not turn on.

Unfortunately its not made for washing.
It is unlikely it will work again but the folowing has helped on cell phones.
Dry it in a not to warm place (not over 50 degreed centigrade) with good ventilation. Wait for 5 days atleast. If you can take the battery out and the memory card before.

Washed camera and lens goes out but screen says lens error

OK, this is lens mechanism failuer due to water damage. the core micro board will start to malfunction in time. this repair will need to be initiated by a Nikon tech. you will need to contact the manufacture for a repair ticket and the nearest location of a repair terminal as well. the actual lens mechanism you will need is not available to the public and, the board as well.

Goes off after lens come out.

Get it repaired under warranty. Sounds like a logic circuit problem.

Pictures washed out

Washed out I would guess looks like it's all white or a lot of white instead of the colors on the pictures. My guess is that your camera is over-exposing the pictures. Usually keeping it in automatic should solve your problem. But if it still doesn't, then it might be that you have an offsetting function that I think is called EV, which is either a plus or a minus function. Plus for over-exposing and minus or under-exposing. Read the manual and look for this function. Usually keeping it on auto is enough. Let me know if this helps.

New kodak digital camera problems

Hey hashbrownz,
What it sounds like to me is the drivers required for the camera to communicate with your computer have either been deleted or corrupted. I would try reinstalling the software that came with the camera, and I have provided a link below from the manufacturer on how to troubleshoot this problem. I hope this helps!

Go Ahead. Use Us.
