DCST300 sONY CYPER-SHOT VIBRATES

I contacted Sony troubleshooting dept and they claim that the t300 is not included in the vibration problem repairs. They gave me an estimate of $171.00 to repair when this appears to be a known issue for Sony cameras.

SOURCE: T300 vibrating every time I turn it on.

Turn off the image stabilizer in the menu, this may stop the problem and will turn off the gyro in the lens. The gyro is causing the problem.

SOURCE: Sony dsc-t70 camara vibrates when turn on

it's actually a failure with the lens mechanism, I just experienced the same situation....Sony has another T20 that they had the same situation with and they offered to fix the cameras until July 2011..currently checking if Sony will fix this defect in this T70

what you are experiencing probably is best described by this article:

SOURCE: My Sony camera vibrates

if you alsow get vibrationOn Sony T100 and similar,
its the vibration canceling unit, i had the same problem.
if you have good hads you can fix it.( on your oun risk)
1) disasamble the camera, you will see black plastic box inside, this is he lens unit.
2) on the botom you see 2 scrwes, they are holding the CCD remove them and the ccd unit will come from the lens assembly
3) the next is the stabilizer unit it is the problematic one. it is located on the left side of the lens asebly and is held by 2 screws.
you can test it by puling out the cable connected to it (the conector is just under the lens) and verifign that the problem is solved. ( you can leave it this way it will shoot fine just without the anti shake)
4) to fix it take it out ,remove the plastic cover, you see the lens on a plastic mount it should be glued to the magnet under it. the problem is that the glue fals apart.
remove one of the pins on wich it slides, and take the lens and the magnet out.
5) reglue the magnet and reasemble the camera.
6) power up and test, for me that solved the problem

if you need more help you can mail me at adisarit(et)yahoo(dot)com
this is spam mail so be prepared to wait a few days for reply.
this was tested and worked on 2 additional cammeras

I have T-300, it vibrates once i put down the shutter, can you please tell me what to do with it.please reply me on vkturki@floatprojects.com


I have the EXACT same problem also. I contacted Sony and they said they would repair for $175 (not including shipping). The DSC-T20 has the EXACT same problem too and they are repairing that one for free. I think we just have to keep an eye on the below link and wait until they state that they will repair ours for free. In the meantime, I ordered a new camera and it's NOT a Sony!

The camera vibrates when it is powered on and fails to focus the object properly.


sounds like lense gears are going bad, when you turn camera on the lense extends, if it does not extend fully probably will not auto focus, call sony for address for estimate of repairs.
