Question about Sanyo Xacti E6 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Sanyo Xacti

This camera is about 2 years old and some of the images now appear lighter on one side of the picture than the other. There is a division right down the middle of the picture and it is light on one side and dark on the other This does not happen with all pictures taken ... only about 20% of them. I am not sure if I chose the correct model.. none of those listed are on my camera but it is a still and movie digital camera

    Thanks so much for your help. Do you recommend I take it to the store where I got it for repair ? It was not a "Big box" store but a local camera store. I am attaching an example of the picture problem to confirm that this is what it might be. Thanks again

    I just found the exact Model number which is VPC HD1 There was another post that said the CCD Imagers were defective in this camera and Sanyo was replacing them so I called Sanyo and that is not the case with this one apparently. Thanks Mary Ann

Either the CCD imager is failing or there are ribbon cables that are coming unseated inside. IF it's cables it should be a cheap fix. If it's the CCD it will be upwards of $100.

    If the store where you bought it does repair work, give them a try. if not, try to find an authorized Sanyo service center or call around to local repair shops for rates.

Can i take video in a dark room

Unfortunately, the Sanyo Xacti PD2 only supports a flash for still shots and dose not have a lamp light for the video side of the camera. You'll have to provide your own source of light for good quality video in a dark setting.
Hope this helps.

Well i have a Sanyo J1 Xacti Digital camera and i lost the CD with the software to download the pictures from camera to Computer. Is there any site where i can get download it? Thanks

Try - look for support button.

Most newer computers with newer operating systems will detect a camera/camcorder when connected to USB. Have you tried it without the disk?

I have an older Xacti that records to SD card. You can use a flash card reader to transfer files without Sanyo software.

You can buy a new LCD and flex cable for $78 at the place Sanyo recomended to me. It takes a week for them to order it and a week to ship out. Call 1-800-421-5080 and give them part # 6450930331.

Mine has the same problem. I took it apart and by pressing on the flex cable my picture was restored. As soon as I let go the screen would go. Trying to decide between replacing the part or the camera.

It looks like a pair of blinds are in front of my flasher

It is a problem with the image sensor and is common in point & shoot digital cameras, especially a less trusted brand as Sanyo. Your best action would be to have it repaired or purchase a new camera.

Sanyo XACTI HD1 Camera-No Pictures / Videos captured.

I have intermittent problems of this type too. Occasionally I get a blank screen in the display mode.

Does the red light on the back of your camera flash while the screen is dark? Mine does.

It is beginning to bug me a lot. It may be because I got my camera wet in the past (and hence I have broken my camera), but I doubt that would result in a partial failure.

I think that the Xacti HD1/HD2 has issues a bit like a blue screen of death on an old Windows computer when faced with storage problems.

I.e. it works but crashes sometimes when it cannot store to its storage medium.

These things work for me
1) Turning the power on and off via the button underneath the screen.
2) Removing and re-inserting the SD card.
3) Turning the power on and off by removing the battery.
4) Using a different (and faster?) SD card.
I am still using my HD2, but I am finding that I must attempt solutions 1-3 about once a day.

It could be because the card I have been using recently is not fast enough. The HD2 accepts both SD and SDHC cards. My SDHC card (which is newer) seems to result in fewer problems, either because the SDHC format is more suited to the Xacti HD2 or becaues the SDHC card I have is faster that then SD card I have. I suspect problems with the speed of the card. I am using cheap SD cards.
