Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-S40 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Sony DSC S40 all of a sudden always takes blurry pics.

Had it for over a year now and it always took very nice pics until about a month ago. No matter what i do , short of putting it on a tri pod, I always get blurry pics. Plus i noticed within the last month, that i get a hand with an exclamation point, to pop up when ever i want to take a pic. Any ideas on what i can do to save this camera from the garbage??? Thanks

The ccd sensor in the t1 is faulty. i've had mine for over 5 years, about 2 years ago, i took a trip to san fran. hoping to snap wonderful pics with my camera. When i arrived i snapped a few pics only to realize later, that all the camera had captured was a white screen. i did some internet searching and found a page, much like this one explaining that the ccd is faulty. i called sony and explained my issue, and they informed me that the ccd is indeed faulty, and that they had a free repair service for it. my camera was fixed for free, and currently is as good as new. the bad news in all of this is that, the free repair service was canceled no more than a few weeks after my incident..... good luck.

We had similiar problems with ours until we started making sure the camera was kept warm when it was shut off. For some reason, it and the batteries don't like the cold...we were able to extend the battery life if we kept it covered when we weren't using it.

Blurry pictures


Hello Joe Canuk, please contact the nearest Sony dealer/service. One possibble cause can be the CCD unit. Best regards, Arpad
