Question about Sony Mavica MVC-FD90 Digital Camera

1 Answer

I put a floppy disk in MVC-FD90 & it would not release it.

I finally wiggled it out, but it repeats this every time I re-insert the disc. Camera says disc not present. Release button fixed, not free to move. Worked fine before. What do I need to do?

Make sure the disk isn't in backwards. If it takes a superdisc, it might not take a regular floppy. Once you get one in, try to format it with the camera, no matter what message you get.

I can not locate where the memory stick is located on my Digital Mavica MVC-FD85. pleaase let me know


I'm sorry to inform you that the MVCFD85 Camera does not have a Memory Stick slot. The medium using in the Mavica FD camera is floppy disc.
The MSAC-FD2M floppy disk adapter can be used in some FD Mavica digital cameras.
With the help of the above mentioned Floppy disc adapter, you can insert a memory stick inside the adapter and insert it in to the floppy disk drive on the camera.

When a floppy disc is inserted it flashes disk


The floppy driver has an internal switch that detects when the floppy disk is protected or not.

It is likely such switch is damaged.

It is necessary to open the camera and the floppy drive to fix it.

If you have experience and skills in fixing electronic devices, or want to try it, then you can try its repair.

The alternative is to pay to have repaired, but is more likely that the quote you will receive is to replace the whole floppy drive, which costs around $40.00 plus the repair labor.

DISC ERROR


This means the the floppy disk drive has dirty the reader/recorder heads, or the heads are misaligned, or the floppy has a mechanical problem during the reading process.

You can start in blowing compressed air inside the floppy disk.

If it does not work, then the floppy drive will need to be serviced or replaced.

Can not put 3.5"disk into my FD85


This is an old model of Sony Movica and you can copy all floppy disk pictures in computer.

In your camera floppy drive is defective and requires replacement but floppy drive of MVC-FD85 is not available any more. So bet a new digital camera and think MVC-FD85 is history now.

Trying to find out what code c:13:01


The problem has nothing to do with the type or quality of the formatting. It is directly related to the disk drive malignment pandemic of Sony Mavica cameras. It seems simple enough to fix, since I fixed my own. You need to unscrew and remove all the small black screws which go around the seam of the camera body (my model was a MVC FD90) Look for little black arrows indicating the screw locations (you need a precision philips screwdriver which can be purchased at the Home Depot for $5.00 under Husky brand name). After removing all screws, try the camera now and see if it works. If it does, then reinstall only 2 screws in any of the holes that appear perfectly aligned with the camera body (hole lines up perfectly between cover holes and camera body holes). Then try again to make sure it still works. If it still doesn't work, then carefully remove camera cover with caution not to damage wire ribbon connection both halves of camera body. Then simply reinstall top with bottom of camera halves. Next,install those 2 screws previously mentioned. Camera should work fine at that point, and floppy disks will now operate when inserted without error message or other malfunctions associated with drive misalignment.

Keeps saying disk protect


These old electronics tend to be tempermental, just like my old 1988 Nintendo....when the problem persisted, I held the disk slot open and went Nintendo-style on it (blow the dust out of the disk slot). That cleaned off the disk reader. I put the disk in, and it started reading the disk instantly.
