    Anti-shake hand is red. When the camera is turned on, any of three modes, there is a whirring sound for about three seconds and the picture shakes horizontially. After that, the camera appears to work ok

    Dito; called Minolta/Sony; tried all the rebooting and resetting to defaults while on the phone; red hand and red camera in uppr left continue. Tried all in various modes. I know how to set the anti shake; this is not the issue. Sony wants $200 just to look at camera, has anyone out there found a fix? Camera seems to take pictures fine after it loses the shakes.

I have a Kinica z5 camera with anti shake. The problem is almost all pictures are blurry.

With autofocus digital cameras, blurred photos are almost always a result of camera shake. You need to hold the camera still even after pressing the button, as there is often a short delay before the shutter fires.

Many digital cameras have a two-stage shutter press- first pressure causes the camera to focus, then the follow through pressure takes the picture. If you are rushing this, you may get unfocussed shots.

Finally, make sure that you have not left the camera in Macro mode. This is a special extreme close-up mode offered by some cameras, and it does not allow autofocus on objects at normal distances. The icon for Macro mode is a little flower. Some cameras have a "face recognition" mode that tries to find a face in the shot and focus on that, so check your autofocus modes to see if it is set to something odd like that.

I dropped my konica minolta dimage a200 and now when i turn it on the screen shakes and anti-shake does not work

The tracking servo motors and associated gears are damaged or misaligned. The purpose of these servos are to automatically adjust the lens positioning so that it seems the camera is almost stationary. When the anti shake is enabled, the lens locks onto a target and if the target moves, the servos move the lens to compensate for the offset. If you are experiencing screen shaking it means that the lens is trying to adjust but cannot because the servo system is damaged. It's quite possible that only one servo motor is functioning and the other is loose. It will require in shop repair.

I droped my camera now when I turn it on is

Apparently, your camera has some form of anti-shake control which is now not functioning. Anti-shake helps hold your camera steady even if you move slightly.

The images that I take are blurred

On almost all newer cameras there is an anti-shake feature. AND it is almost always turned off by default. Go through your camera menus and look for anti blurr or anti shake, the icon is usually a hand or person with lines "moving" outside it (to represent shaking). Good Luck!

My Sony DSC T70 shakes & vibrates

On 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.
i have a document with pictures explaining the process

Problem with Shutter/Lenz

This sounds like a stuck shutter. There is a delicate assembly inside your lens that will block the light right when you snap the picture allowing the image sensor to record what it saw at that very moment. This shutter is composed of two blades that come from either side of the field of view and overlap to completely block the light. It sounds like what has happened to your camera is that one of those blades has either come off its guide or has become stuck. The shutter assemblies in these cameras seem to be very delicate and sensitive to even minor impact. Due to the anti-shake features it will have to be returned to the manufacturer for service if you want to get it fixed. David Millier Advance Camera Repair
