Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W100 Digital Camera

Sony dscw 100 shooting mode

My sony dscw 100 suddenly stopped displaying the picture as seen from the lens (just remains blank and shows all the other details like the histogram, flash status etc. but no picture). I can view pictures already taken that are resident on the memory stick. so it looks like a ccd (or similar) issue...any ideas would be helpful

Autofocus problem with 70-300mm is usm

Probably needs a new ribbon cable in the lens. This flexible cable maintains the contact as the lens is zoomed in and out. If it is still under warranty take it back to B&H for a simple repair.

Good luck!

Your camera has problem in Lens mechanism. If Lens doesn't open properly, camera will not show picture at all. There would be Loading Motor section demaged in Lens mechanism and it needs to be replaced to work camera OK.
Now come to blue screen in playback mode, This model doesn't have internal memory, so you need memory stick/ card to see previously taken pictures.

Cannot shoot picture

The mode switch (off/play/record) is a weak point on many digital cameras. It is likely that yours needed to be replaced.

Your CCD imager is broken, cameras made from 2002 up to 2005 has a weak ccd imager. Company who uses this defective ccd imager recalled all unit and replaced it with a stronger design free of charge. check first their website, find their customer support bulletin, make a copy and show it to their service center.
