    I guess I am not the only one searching the net for a resolution to the vibrating problem with my Sony Cybershot DSC-T20. It's driving me freaking crazy. The camera is just about 6 months old. It does not do it all the time, but whenever it is most inconvenient, I flick open the lens and it just vibrates. I can tell it's the auto focus/adjustment that is doing it, because when it does not happen, the same vibration can be felt for one or two seconds in cases where it would normally be focusing.



    I guess the search goes on!

    sorry..but this is annoying me so much how am i suppose to fix it ?

  • Caity Feb 28, 2008

    I'm guessing its something to do with the focusing mechanism inside.

    To stop the camera from shaking/buzzing/vibrating, just hold it upright and gently shake.
    Gently though... they're really delicate huh.

    But yeah. What is with that vibrating?? Annoying much.



    Anyway.. Give that holding upright thing a whirl. It works for me.

    My camera shakes!! I'm not sure what to do, it's been happening for a while..is there anything I can do to stop it from happening? Or should I trash it and get a new camera?

  • Anonymous Oct 19, 2008

    I have had the same problems also. I have found that sometimes turning the camera off, selecting preview/review photos, then sliding down the front lens cover to turn it back on sometimes stops it. Obviously this is only a short term fix though

Sony has recalled certain serial numbers and will fix the vibrating problem for free. Unfortunately for me, my serial number was not included in the recall. I'm working with them and if it is the lens mechanism failure they will fix it for free. Check their website for information.

    Another update. Sony will not fix my DSC-T20 vibrating problem for free even though it's the exact problem they have reported in specific serial range. Since mine doesn't fall into their listed serial number and color combo, they want me to pay half the fee. Is this any way to get a repeat customer? I think not! I will never buy another Sony anything if I can help it. Their customer service had a lot to be desired as I had to speak with several managers and be transferred to their National Customer Relations Center only to find out they were willing to loose a future customer by making me pay for the repair.

If it works for you, the least you can do is say thanks to me, arjun239@gmail.com.

DSC-T20 Sony Cyber Shot Camera that vibrates like a cell pohne. The vibration does not allow for a good picture it all. Could it that the anti vibration system of the camera goes into a full mode trying to...


Hi!
The problem you have is a faulty image stabilizer. It's a well known problem in these cameras. It's a hardware fault and I'm afraid you won't be able to fix it yourself. Usualy it requires the lens unit to be replaced. You should contact your local Sony service center or me at toms.safranovs@gmail.com - I give the best prices. ;)
I work in a Sony service center.

Hope this helps!

Problem in Sony DSC T20


Call sony to see what they can do. Other than that their isnt many repair shops that are much less than what they quoted you. Or if you are good with mechanics it isnt hard to change the motor. Just purchase the exact same camera, a broken one with a different problem, off ebay or something similar and exactly how you take the motor out of the parts camera is how you would with yours.

Vibration when using the Sony Cyber-Shot dsc-t20


Well, it seems that this is either a manufacturing defect or a defective/sub-standard part being used in the product. It would do Sony well to address this problem immediately so that all of us Sony lovers would continue to believe in their products. If this can be solved via a firmware upgrade then I hope Sony can guide us through it.
