SOURCE: Sony Alpha DSLR-A100 does not turn on anymore

Opening the device might help, check the connector of the battery if still connected. The drop may cause lose connections, may also happen to have a crack board... ^_^

SOURCE: Sony Alpha 100 gives error message when attempting to take pic.

Hi! I just had the same problem with my Sony A100, when I tried two different CF cards. I was getting the same error message as reported above: "Unable to use card" then "Format?" then that format fails. Thinking the camera is broken, I checked online camera repair sites and also called Sony directly. Sony's flat rate, and that of PrecisionCamera is $228 to fix CF card failure. Then my daughter said, "the CF card in my room works fine in the camera" - and lo and behold - it does. The CF card that works is brand PQI and is marked Hi-Speed 60 2Gb. The cards that do NOT work are marked SanDisk Ultra II 1.0Gb and SanDisk 128 Mb. So my advice is, before you give up on the camera as broken, try a number of different CF cards first.

The second cause of CF failure is if someone has pushed a CF card in the wrong way. That can bend one or more of the tiny metal contact pins in the CF socket in the camera. Look carefully to see that all the pins are straight up. [I don't know how one can straighten these pins, or if the whole socket would need to be replaced...but at least you can determine the cause of the CF failure.]

Best regards - Michael

SOURCE: Shutter button fell off Sony Cyber-shot DsC-W5 Camera

I bought a "for parts" dscw50 off ebay & unscrewed the side panels; this allowed me to remove the whole top panel (entire silver piece) & exhange it with the one on my own camera which I had broken the shutter button off of. Works fine now.

Couple of things to try: 1. If you've downloaded the pics from your memory card, format it in the camera. 2. Go into the menu and scroll to "reset"...follow the on-screen instructions. 3. Remove the card and battery...press all the buttons..leave it alone for 20 minutes...insert the card and then the battery...turn it on.

SOURCE: MY BUILT-IN FLASH NO LONGER WORKS WITH MY SONY ALPHA 300 DSLR

In that case it's broken and is not a DIY fix. Usually it's either the flash tube or flash charging circuitry/capacitor, and they're the sort of things which can just fail suddenly.

Your camera will still be under the manufacturer's one year worldwide warranty, so contact Sony in your country to find out what the local arrangements are.

You'll need to provide proof of the purchase date, if you cannot do so then the repair will be chargeable; Sony have a fixed fee policy for dSLR repairs and if you're in the UK then it's currently £114.56.

Note that if you're in the UK then you additionally have Sale of Goods Act protection for up to six years (five in Scotland). The Act states thaty goods must be of durable quality with respect to the price paid and intended use. Clearly the camera should not fail within such a short space of time so you may be able to return the camera and demand a refund from the retailer. Enforcing your rights is sometimes a different story altogether, but note that if you accept a repair from the retailer then you future rights to reject the goods are severely reduced.

One further VITAL point: if there is even the slightest evidence of any unauthorised repair attempts, all your consumer rights vanish.

On balance, I'd strongly recommend that you either return the camera for exchange/refund or return it to Sony under warranty.

Hope that this helps, all that I ask in return is for you to take a moment to rate my answer.

Set date and time imprint on all photos on Sony DSLR A200


Your camera won't deface your photos by scrawling a bunch of numbers across them. However the date and time (and a lot more) are stored with every picture in its EXIF metadata. Any photo viewing/editing program should be able to display this data. To print this data, please consult the documentation for whatever program you're using to print your pictures. Depending on the program and printer you may print the date on the image, in the margins, or on the back.

I want to ask how can I stitch my shoes together again and clean it


Most shoes are not stiched where yours are coming apart, they are just glued. I would try some super glue or heavy duty epoxy glue. things like normal white glue wood glue or things like that wont work because the area will be constantly flexing. As for a good cleaner just use a good dish soap that says it works on grease/oil, and scrub them in the sink and let them soak for awhile before you rinse them off.

The power button broke off


Best way to fix this is to take off the board that is over the power button and hot glue the button back in place. Only apply glue to the side of the button where it hinges - the other side needs to move freely or it won't contact the switch and operate correctly.

While taking photos yesterday, my shutter button stayed down or wouldn't click. The "no lens attached" came on, even though I had just finished taking some photos. My Sony a100 is 5 years old and...


There is propably a connection problem between the camera and the lens. Try taking the lens og the camera, and reattach it. If this does not work, try cleaning the golden connectors on the lens and the camera. Use a q-tip, gently rub the connectors, and reattatch the lens. If this does not work, you should get the camera serviced at a repair center.

My Sony DSLR-A350 was working fine. Took dozens of pictures. When I turned it back on to transfer to the computer, it wouldn't turn on. I knew the battery was charged but tried another one, same thing....


Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.

Have a Sony Alpha DSLR-A300K. Let a friend borrow it and she used USB to download the photos to her computer. Ever since she did that, the camera does not work: specifically, all the buttons don't do...


Sounds like when she disconnected the USB cord, she didn't use the "safely remove hardware" function on her computer. You could try a reset from the menu if you could get into it. If not, try a manual reset...it sometimes works. Remove the card and battery...press every button...leave it alone for 20 minutes...insert the card and then the battery...turn it on.

Broken locking ring on Quantaray 28-90mm. 1:3.5-5.6


Hey Quiltzlady,
If you were an authorized service technician you could probably order this part from the manufacturer, and if this camera is really only $90 to purchase new it is very likely the cost of the repair would not be worth doing. The suggestion to super glue the ring back together might work but I would try epoxy being that it is a lot stronger, but remember you run the risk of rendering the lens inoperable when you involve glue with something that relies on moving parts to operate properly. Another suggestion is to find the same lens, but broken, for sale that this ring is not broken on, and use that lens as a parts lens I hope this helps.

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.
