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.

SOURCE: sony dslr a200 camera error

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.

52mm lens stuck on body,,how do you unstick it?


Normally, these lenses do not 'unscrew'. When you push the red button, it releases the lens catch and then you rotate the lens a short ways counterclockwise, then gently pull forward on the lens while holding the body of the camera and the two units separate. It is possible you have gotten some dirt into the lens latching mechanism. Try returning the lens to the locked position, press the red button, rotate the lens to where it stops and then returning the lens to the locked position and repeat several times if the lens does not lift out when you hit the movement stop. This may allow you to get past the dirt. Otherwise, take it to a camera shop, particularly if the camera is still under Canon warranty.

D300 pop up flash button broken


Do you mean that the flash won't pop up? The usual cause is either impact to the flash unit or sticky liquid spillage on the flash causing it to stick down. Unfortunately Nikon stopped selling parts on July 13th so unless you can find parts on Ebay you will need to send the camera to Nikon to repair an impact problem. If the flash button is stuck it may be broken.

Not used the camera for some time. When I try to take pictures I get the Error message Err 99. Shooting is not possible.Turn the power switch to <Off> and <On> again or re-install the...


hi the err 99 usually stands for shutter problem. however, there are several different causes. The first is defective shutter unit, second is defective power diaphragm unit in lens, and main PCB defective. You have to bring to your local repair shop. they would charge you around $65 to $235 depend on what it really cause problem. you can verify lens or body problem. try to operate without lens if still see err 99 when you push button. then it is body problem... Good luck with you...

Hiyou have very common problem of canon dslr product. usually problem come from defective shutter unit. However, there is cause from lens also. Would you remove lens and push shutter button? if no error 99, then the problem come from lens---usually power diaphragm control fpc defective.If shows error 99, then you have body problem. At this point, still you have to check more. please set camera M mode and bulb shutter speed, you have to look front of camera if mirror goes up and show to you picture sensor. would you tell me more later.

When i take a picture they all seem 2 come out really bright.mostly white looking rather than a normal colour


Check the exposure compensation on your camera. This is often shown with an "EV" and then a number such as "+1" or "-0.5". If you are getting overly bright images, then you likely have the EV set to +1 or more. This causes the camera to overexpose the image by +1 stops of light, making things whiter.
Without specific camera name and models, I cannot give you the exact steps to solve this, however on most DSLR cameras, you simply hold down a button on the body while rotating a dial on the body. Usually the button looks something like this: http://www.imaging-resource.com/PRODS/K100D/ZPOWERSWITCH.JPG In the above image, the button below the shutter release with the +/- symbol is the EV button. Simply hold that while rotating a dial on the body until "EV 0.0" shows up in your viewfinder or in live view.

How do you remove the lens if it placed on upside down?


There is no mechanical way of placing the lens on the camera upside down. There is only one way the lens will fit into the body and it takes about 1/8 turn to lock it in place. There should be no effort to installing the lens on the camera. To remove a locked lens make sure the camera is turned off hold the camera in your right hand close to your body and with your palm up. You will now be looking at the left side of the camera, there is a D shaped button just behind the lens mount. Wrap your hand around the lens so your thumb is positioned right at this button. Push the button in with the end of your thumb as you gently turn the lens away from your body. It will detach in 1/8th turn and come away from the camera. To reinstall the lens line up the dots could be white or red set the lens into the camera body and turn the lens gently clockwise and you will hear a click. It takes less effort to do this going on and coming off then it does to open a Peanut Butter jar that has already been opened once.

Lens are not coming out


Did you put the lens on up-side down? Don't laugh, it happens. If so, hold the lens lock button in (on camera body)and give the lens a quick counter clock wise twist. It should snap out.
If on correctly, turn lens clock wise while pushing in lock button,then with button still pushed in turn the lens counter clock-wise.
