    My camera won't stay on in picture mode. When I power up it just makes a little noise for 1 second and then turns off. It does stay on in view mode so I know it's not the batteries. My memory stick is empty and so is the camera memory. I would appreciate any help on this problem.

    I have the same problem. The focus motor is either stuck or broken, so the solution is to either replace or repair it. This is a common problem with those cameras. I wander why Sony does not sell a suitable mending kit for this problem.

This is not a camera problem- you just need better picture viewing software on your computer. The program I like is called Faststone. You can download it for free from the internet at www.download.com

Screen is white and doesn't display area being photographed. Can take pictures.


From camerahacker.com:
1. Hold camera firmly in left hand.
2. Smartly rap front of camera with knuckles of right hand on the "Cyber-shot" logo.
Worked for me :)

your lens is possibly damaged or seriously out of alignment - replacing lens is easier , than opening the camera ( hard to believe how many tiny screws etc . are in the way ) plus if you do open it . . . ? few technicians will work on it , after .
