Digital Camera and Video Phone Number 1 800 222 7669 - it's automated, just say your model number, then "no" to accessories, then "no" to connection problems, then "picture" for ccd issues. Its that easy!

My sony dsc-w1 got very wet, caught in a rainstorm and did not have the case. I have left it dry out for 4 days and it turns on, lcd works, can read memory stick and display old pictures on the lcd. But...

Maybe the shutter got wet and sticky. You can try look into the lens then press shutter button to take picture. If you don’t see the movement inside the hole, the shutter doesn’t open, it will take black picture.

DSC-F707 camera cuts off after 10 second , just bought a new battery.

I also bought an aftermarket battery for my F707 on Ebay and got the same "for info...." message.
I contacted the seller and they sent me a new one and it worked, don't see a way around it.

Sony digital dsc-f707 startup goes to "no memory stick"

Could be that the contacts on the camera are oxidised. Try cleaning the contacts with isopropyl alcohol and see if this helps. If not, it could indicate a circuitry problem. In this case, you'd probably be better off buying a new cam altogether!

F707 Problem w/EVF and LCD screen

From your description, it sounds like what I've seen described by other people when something has come loose inside-- maybe a cable. If you do a search, I know there are posts where [crazy] people have pried open the guts of their cameras and have written out a step-by-step tutorial on what's in there. If you didn't feel comfy going that route, you might be able to send it to Sony for repair. My vote, if the camera works okay otherwise, would be to just live with it.

Dust Behind Lens on F707

That's odd. I had the 707 (may she rest in God's eternal peace), and never thought that dust could get behind the lens. Do you see the dust when you look through the EVF, or when you look at the lens itself? Either way, one way to test it is to set the camera to the smallest aperture (f/8), infinity focus, and shoot a clear blue sky. Open the picture in your editor program, and see if the dust shows up. That's a technique to use with an SLR to see if the dust inside would affect a picture, so I'm not sure if this will work with the 707.
