If your stabilizer is bad you will notice the pictures will not be as framed in the viewfinder. You can compensate by slightly framing off center a bit. Most of the time the picture is lower and off to one side slightly. This is a pricy fix if repaired. You can still take nice pictures but just compensate or recrop the picture with an editor. This is not an uncommon problem. Considering you have a a200 you can pickup a nice used on for probably less than the repair cost.

Could you tell us more about your problem? The stabilizer might not be faulty and there might be a way of you making it useable, but there's no way of telling without additional info. The only thing to do is refer you to the user manual and hope it offers some help:

Visor view

Some of ALPHA DLSR are prone to have such problems on antishake mechanicsm. I stucks and fails. You start to see a black line or twisted view instead to correct image seen on optical visor. You either need somebody to service it or you need to remove ccd board and fix the shaking mechanism by trial and error. Fixing means really fixing it to surface that it wont move anymore. Since this will allow framing corect you will loose anti shake function. though situation. Check the link. you are not alone.

Hobart A200 mixer won't start

My fantastic guy just rebuilt my A200. He says it's likely that your back plate is slightly off center so that the center arbor is touching the windings-- any contact and the machine won't run. The tolerances are thousandths of an inch in there.

My toshiba a200 does not work on charged battery ,but when plugged in it sometimes works and sometimes cuts and dies and shows flashing blue light and refuses to boot at this stag.e,can you help...

Whenyou connect the power adapter into the laptop, does the power LED light up? Ifnot then - The battery adapter or the adapter's power lead or the laptop's powersocket could be faulty. Check power adapter's DCplug that connects into the laptop power socket with a multi-meter, the voltageshould be slightly higher than the voltage that is printed on the label on thebottom of the adapter. If the voltage is zero or way below the voltage that isprinted on the label then the power adapter is faulty and needs to be replaced. If the adapter is OK thenconnect it to the laptop and power it up, then look at the power/batterycharging LED light and wriggle the power plug in the laptop's powersocket. If the power/battery LED light flashes and in a certain position thisLED light stays firm, then the power socket is either faulty or it has a drysolder joint where it is connected to the motherboard. This can be repaired but itrequires the laptop to be completely dismantled to get at this power socket andrepair. If you cannot DIY then I suggest you get a quote first.

Does a Toshiba Equium A200 have a built in microphone?

Here are two different spec sheets for the A200-1V0 & A200-196. Neither one lists a "built-in mic" but both support external mics via 3/8 jack. Also there's always the possibility of using a USB mic.
Hope this helps, if so please comment, vote, etc.
Thank you.
