Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-P72 Digital Camera

2 Answers

My sony digital camera was stepped on and the viewfinder is broken

The view finder was stepped on and is cracked. When the camera is turned on the viewfinder is black. The camera takes photos, however I cannot use it because of the broken view finder. Do u have any answers on fixing it or can you please suggest somewhere that I can take it to have it repaired. I live in the Maitland, Newcastle area.

Thanks. Ken

I have a DSC-P93 (same camera with 5mp) I had crack the LCD carrying the camera in my front hip pocket. I searched for a replacement LCD and I had no luck. I ended up Buying a “parts” camera from ebay for $9.90 + 4.00 for shipping. You could get either DSC-P73 or DSC-P93 (the LCD is the same) just be sure they say that the screen shows something. Menus is fine errors are no problem as long as it’s not black.

Maitland, Newcastle in Australia?

If so, you can get hold of Sony Australia (www.sony.com.au).

Honestly though, a broken LCD screen on a 4 year old camera is probably not economical to repair. you may be better off replacing the camera.

I cant see through the Viewfinder its just all black but i can see on the led screen and i can switch the display to he view finder and see it fine , so is the viewfinder broken ?


It is not likely the view finder is broken, because it is deep inside the camera. There can be many reasons why you can't use it as it should. Did you know you can adjust the brightness of the viewfinder and the display separately? It is in the manual page 31. And if you are with the manual (still online available) have a look on page 16 too.
When the camera does not give the image to the view finder, it also could be an electronic problem, because switching in the camera goes along electronic paths.

Turn on camera..view finder and/or display screen


The s7000 has three different display modes: Screen, viewfinder, and off. Screen is for looking at the big screen, viewfinder is for looking through the digital viewfinder, and off should turn off all the displays. Try pressing the DISP button once. That should reactivate the screen and make it possible to use the camera again.

Water Damage to View Finder


Hello,
Try cleaning the viewfinder with a damp (again?) soft cloth. You can use a product recommended for cleaning camera lenses. You can still use the screen to view the scene you want to shoot. (I am assuming that what you call the viewfinder is the small eye that used to equip all cameras, before it was replaced by the view screen.)

Hope it helps.

My sony DSC-H1's LCD is not showing anything...but I can operate the camera with its view finder... Do you have any idea why it happens? and is there any master reset option for this camera?


I have a similar SONY camera. Turn the camera on and to the right of the viewfinder (or perhaps in a different location on your model) there will be a small button that reads, "FINDER/LCD". Press that button once to see if your view switches back from viewfinder mode to LCD display mode.

View finder


Ok. On your viewfinder, there might be a round dial. Turn it to adjust focus. Otherwise, sometimes viewfinders are like that... blurry, especially electronic.
