Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-S60 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Time for new flash??

I am having issues with the flash for my DSC-S60. Anytime I use the flash the pics turn out to be extremely underexposed or extremely overexposed, resulting in pics that are basically black, or basically white. I have tested the flash with every single setting and exposure imagineable, I even tried longer downtimes between taking pics, but the flash still mucks up. Is this fixable? Or is this camera kaput for anything other than daylight pics? Thanks in advance for any help!

The camera's light sensor or metering system, for correct flash exposure is no longer working, that's why your shots is either black or white (overexposed or underexposed) the flash firing has loose its control because of the defective sensor, it now only depends on the charge current of the flash capacitor. If you'll wait longer time the charge is maximum picture result will be overexposed(white), and vice versa, less charge, dark result, have the flash assy replaced. Daylight no problem, it doesnt use the flash circuitry, thanks

Over exposure


I had a problem with overexposed pics as well as horizontal lines. Try initializing you camera ( return to factory settings) by clicking menu and then scroll down until you see "Initialize". If that doesn't work, then do a power reset (This fixed my problem).
1. Remove battery from camera.
2. Hold power button for 60 seconds
3. Replace battery, and try taking pics.
If neither of these resets work, then you should try chatting with a Sony rep. You will your model number ( DSC-H70 ) https://www.docs.sony.com/startchat.asp

Wont turn on


I don't know if this will help, but try it. Install new batteries. You may have enough power to view the images, but not have enough power to operate everything. There are also microcomputers in the camera. You can also try removing batteries, WAIT 1 FULL MINUTE, then reinstall (making sure the polarity is correct). Hopefully either of these simple solutions help.

Pictures are underexposed


When you are photographing scenes with mostly light objects (for example, snow, water, and sand), the picture is usually underexposed (darker than it really is). The camera meter registers the brightness of the scene and tries to set the camera lens and aperture for an exposure based on average brightness levels (18% reflectance) causing it to underexpose, as in the following picture. When you are photographing scenes with mostly dark objects (for example, shade, shadow, and overcast skies), and very few light objects, the camera may overexpose the image, causing it to be too light. If you have a flash on your camera, you can compensate by adding "fill flash" for some extra light. If your camera has an exposure compensation adjustment, you can increase or decrease the exposure to correct for these exposure problems. Increase the number to make the image lighter, and decrease the number to make the image darker. You may want to try a series of shots with different exposure compensation adjustments to get a feel for how much difference these adjustments make.
