Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W50 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Blured Pictures A few weeks ago, I sent in a DSCW50 camera under warranty. I used the camera during the holidays and the problem still persists: images continue to come out blurred and out of focus. I feel extremely DISSAPOINTED about this SONY product and I really regret the day I purchased this camera. I have done an extensive research over the web and I just learned that I am not the only consumer having a problem with this SONY product. In addition, in comparison with the images taken with my old FUJI Fine Pix camera, it continues to take far better pictures than this SONY product, despite the fact it was supposed to have far superior technology. The pictures from my 25th Wedding Anniversary with my wife, our children?s birthdays and other family pictures and moments have been completely ruined thanks to this low-quality product.

Re: Blured Pictures

When you sent the camera in did they give you a diagnosis? Even set to macro it shouldn't affect wider angle pictures. My money would be on a fault with the autofocus, sony probably should have replaced the unit. I wouldn't give up on sony though, every cybershot i've used (which quite a few) has always given good results and never had a fault. I agree i've seen plenty of dsc w30's/35's/50's/55's etc models on ebay with breakdown problems of one sort or another, but all manufacturers have problems.

White out

There was a known problem with a batch of early F710s that came out of Japan - I managed to get mine sent back for a free repair... but that was four years ago. Unless it's still under warranty not sure what you can do.

Camera powers off

I think battery went on protection mode and if you give couple of hours rest to battery by take out from camera and place it on shelf. Hope this trick will work.

The left side of my pictures are blured.

If it's been like that since Day 1, I'd guess either an improperly assembled lens, or a misaligned CCD in the body. Hopefully it's a warranty fix. If it has recently started, it may be due to impact to lens or body. Fingers crossed for the warranty situation.

Keeps asking me to turn off and back on...

Since your camera is still under warranty, best thing will be calling Sony's appropriate service center for their assistance. Good luck!

When using the zoom button the cam stops working

This suggests the zoom motor has failed. As you only purchased it 2 weeks ago - it should be replaced under warranty
