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

Hello. the camera goes on, the display is on but black. when i take a pic it is also black. i can see pics and use the menu but not taking pics anymore. thanx for your help


It's possible you have a stuck or faulty shutter. To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter.
If your camera is out of warranty I would suggest buying a new one as repairs for this are extremely high ($500+)

I shot 200 pics w/Canon EOS rebel XT 8mp camera on a new San Disk Ultra 4GB card. All pics look like flash did not work. It was working and I've shot hundreds of pics in same place, same lighting, using...


The CF card has nothing to do with the information that is sent to it. It is just a recordable medium that stores what the camera sends to it. There is some other problem with the settings of the camera that caused the photos to be underexposed. Do you use RAW mode for capture of the images? If you do then the Canon RAW conversion software can batch process the photos to correct the exposure.

try setting the ISO to 100 or 200 and then select auto top take a pic. I suspect you have underexposed the film by selecting an ISO that is wrong compatinilituy with the apetture you have selected like 22.

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.
