Re: File error issue

If the images are on the card and transfer OK to computer then we will have to look back to the camera.
You are sure that playback mode is selected correctly - are you?
Check out the hand book for this.
If you are sure - then it would seem to be a fault and the camera should be returned to the seller or the Sony support site contacted with a view to obtaining a replacement

Hi there. I purchased a EuroCyber digital Camera

Does this camera use a memory card? If so, did you remember to format it in the camera before using it to optimize it for your camera?

File numbers not displayed on screen

This may be a very simple problem.

Set the function dial to playback (the box with an arrow inside).

Adjacent to the top right of the LCD screen is a button with a graphic next to it of a box with two vertical lines either side. Each time you press it it alters the amount of onscreen display information and it can also turn off the screen to save battery life The latter is useless in playback mode, but very useful when taking photos if you always use the optical viewfinder as I do.

Yes your data card needs to be formatted or replaced. try formatting the card in the setup menu sometimes this helps. Hope this does the trick.

It sounds like the memory stick would be full why not format it and limit your number of pictures to its capacity.  Download pictures to your PC to have more space.

Turn on camera. Blurry pic. Wirly grinding noises. Blue screen.
Codes on blue screen:

5 f 0 8
5 e 0 2

Sometimes smacking the **** out of it fixes it. Today it doesn't seem to do the trick any more.

"System Error" & camera turns off when I try to us the instant playback.

Remove the SD card, use a card reader to view files on your PC. Save any pictures that you want to keep - and then delete the file and also the DCIM parent folder. Once you have done this, try it back in the camera. Worked fine for us after this.
