Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-P12 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Loose lens? The camera works well and takes good pictures. However, the lens has developed considerable movement across its axis, and the sideways movement can be felt when moving the camera body from side to side. Is this looseness an indication of likely failure in the future, and should I do something about it at this stage? Any opinions would be appreciated.

Nikon collpix l810 lens shake automatically


The Nikon Coolpix L810 is a great camera capable of taking very good and sharp pictures, even in bad light conditions. It has a Vibration reduction, that makes it even possible to shoot pictures without tripod when you zoom in very far. If normally with the same lens length you should need 1/200 of a second your camera should still be capable of taking that picture with only the same blur from shake, with 1/50 of a second. But if you ever should use a tripod. make sure you switch off that feature. Because the Vibration reduction, works with a staking lens element. that should compensate the movement of the camera, by shaking in the correct direction opposite to the movement of the camera. The element will still shake and so blur a picture, when the camera is placed on a tripod.
Don't try to shoot pictures with the zoom on full extension, in bad light conditions. That also won't work. Lots of things can be done with the camera, but to everything is a limit. Most of the time that limit comes sooner when there is less light.

My lens will shut half way, then turns off automatically. Once I turn the camera on. I Cannot take pictures. Any advice will help. Thank you


Hi Natalie:
Lens stuck, is common defective that need new lens unit replacement or just repairable.

Causes of a Lens Error: There are a number of ways with which a lens error can be caused. Particulates might have managed to get into the mechanical bits that allow the lens to retract, a purely physical interference with the lens mechanism. If the camera was dropped, especially while the lens was extended, there's a pretty good chance something might have been knocked loose, such as the guide pins upon which the lens withdraws and retracts.

How to Repair a Lens Error: As scary as a lens error might seem, there are some easy fixes. Before trying any of them out, however, first take a good long look at your camera warranty and maybe have a chat with the company. If the lens error will be covered under the terms of the warranty, go for it. Even some of the simple fixes mentioned below might void the camera warranty. Frankly, however, it's unlikely that a lens error will qualify for the warranty.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using Fixya, and have a nice day.

I put a fresh new pack of film into my Fuji film instax 210 camera but only used it to take two pictures. The next day when I tried to take a picture, it came out completely white. Why is that? It is very...


Completely white photos on an Instax, or any instant camera means the film has been exposed somehow. Check to be sure the film door is completely closed, and latched properly. If it is, it's possible, though unlikely, that your camera's shutter is stuck open. It'd be easy to check, simply look at the front of your camera into the lens, and see if you see any mechanical bits, now take a picture and see if you see any of them move - movement means working, no movement means not. If the entire camera back opens (I'm not sure if it does) you can also open it and do the same thing, looking to see if you see light through the camera when you're looking through the lens but not taking a picture - if you do the lense is stuck open. This, however, would require removing and wasting whatever film is remaining in it right now.

Darkened image


same for you, please red this: "My camera is 2 years old. 6 months ago horizontal lines began appearing in all pictures" The problem is not the sensor as the first solution has been posted, the real problem is connected with the flat cable inside lenses that is broken. You cannot replace it, you can raplace intere zoom. The problem is frequently on this type of camera and direct connected with camera frequent use. The fixed and automatic diaphragm do not work bacause broken flet is broken and the sensor is receiving too mach light. Take the camera, switch it on then light with a flashlight the lens, you see a diaphragm movement or hear a click on the lens, if not the flat wire is broken (means microcut inside flat invisible without a magnifying glass). Most time same problem is present with no image on the screen because diaphragm is completelly closed.

Most likely, the lens movement gears are misaligned. There's also a good chance you misaligned the lens elements by knocking the lens sideways. It is not going to work, since it cannot move the lens to focus or zoom now. Your choices are to repair or replace the camera.

The pictures I take outside are white.


A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open).

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 so, please see the following for further info and a simple fix that may help:

When taking pictures there are lines across the pictures and sometimes the picts are really bright or discolored. What could be the cause of this?

Subject is dark when looking through the viewfinder


Take the lens off and look at the lens opening on the body - at the 9 o'clock position is the aperture stopdown lever. It should be square to the edge - not bent sideways or too far from the side. It's a pretty flimsy lever and easily bent. You can bend it back square by grabbing with pliers and pushing toward the left side. Common problem.

Lens stuck


Yes it is fixable. if there is a friction in the movement of the lense cover blades this happens. If it is due to fine sand or dust try using a soft brush with a rubber pump fitted at the back so that it cen blow the sand off the camera. The problem is not that big for going for a new camera.
