SOURCE: Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W55... Problem: "vibration warning" what is this?

My husband just discovered that it has to do with the flash setting. When the auto-flash and flash-on modes are on, it doesn't do it. When the "SL" mode is on - I get the Vibration Warning.

SOURCE: Sony DSC-W100 PROBLEMS

I found a solution that worked for me further on in this site. The person said to reset the camera. On my Sony DSC-W100, I opened the battery/memory slot door and to the left of the memory slot there's a tiny gray dot that I pressed and the problem has gone away.

No. I'm sorry. But Sony is NOT good at providing free repairs out of warranty. Bottom line, don't buy Sony ****.

SOURCE: When I turn the camera on it begins to vibrate and

if you alsow get vibrationOn Sony T100 and similar,
its the vibration canceling unit, i had the same problem.
if you have good hads you can fix it.( on your oun risk)
1) disasamble the camera, you will see black plastic box inside, this is he lens unit.
2) on the botom you see 2 scrwes, they are holding the CCD remove them and the ccd unit will come from the lens assembly
3) the next is the stabilizer unit it is the problematic one. it is located on the left side of the lens asebly and is held by 2 screws.
you can test it by puling out the cable connected to it (the conector is just under the lens) and verifign that the problem is solved. ( you can leave it this way it will shoot fine just without the anti shake)
4) to fix it take it out ,remove the plastic cover, you see the lens on a plastic mount it should be glued to the magnet under it. the problem is that the glue fals apart.
remove one of the pins on wich it slides, and take the lens and the magnet out.
5) reglue the magnet and reasemble the camera.
6) power up and test, for me that solved the problem

if you need more help you can mail me at adisarit(et)yahoo(dot)com
this is spam mail so be prepared to wait a few days for reply.
i have a document with pictures explaining it

For more detailed light placement, zoom in on photos by pinching the screen.<br /> The user must also choose from the beat, bass, mid or treble selection when decorating with the lights for the design to respond to the music. If a variety is not selected, a hint suggests you change some of the bulbs. Example displays are included to help with design ideas.

Hey i have got nokia 7210c supernova mobile and it has asked for the PIN 3 times i didnt exactly remember that PIN and i gave the wrong PIN now it was showing me PIN blocked enter PUK code how can i get...

Hello and sorry to read about your problem.

First, their is no secret code to unlock your phone. The carrier has the ability to unlock your phone. But it must be that carriers phone. you need to contact the carrier, that owns your phone. I far as your private security code PUK,
Example: Phone was on AT&T and you want on T-Mobile..
AT&T has to give you the unlock code.
In addition to that, their is another code which allows you to change carriers, again you must contact the carrier...
NO SECRET CODES FOLKS. Their are online service's that you can pay for a PUK code.

Now i tried to help you.Please help me, and rate/vote this response. Thanks

I can't read Asian DVD. My wife arrive from Thailand and want to read her Original DVD. Have you got sollution?


Please check in the manual which region code (which is displayed at back cover of DVD) can be played on your DVD player. If the DVD brought from Thailand carries the same there should not be a problem but if it is different then it cannot be played. This must be the reason of not reading/playing. Solution lies that you should have a multisystem DVD player
