Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-F717 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Re: No picture...

Greetings, I've used this camera for the last 4 years and enjoyed it. My problem is when I power up the camera I get no picture in either the viewfinder or LCD screen. I still see my display information, but no picture just an all black image. What could be the problem?

I've had the Samsung L200 with the same Panasonic 1GB memory card for the last 3 years and it's been great, but all of a sudden today it started saying 'memory full' after only taking a few...


The camera is telling you that the internal memory is full. To get your card to work, you must clear it. With no card in the camera, go into the menu and find "format" and follow the on-screen instructions to erase the internal memory. Then, your card should work unless you formatted it in the computer, in which case you'll have to format (completely erases it) it in the camera.

Why does my GE C1033 Digital Camera always say the battery is exhausted even though the batteries are new. And I just got it and have not left it on or used it too long.


Bet you're using alkaline batteries? You really should be using rechargeable batteries instead of alkalines, or worse yet, those so-called "super heavy duty" batteries. Modern rechargeables have over 5 times the power of alkaline batteries, and last for hundreds of shots. Today's digital cameras really eat power. Disposable batteries are good only for emergencies, and they usually only last for a few pictures as you've discovered.

I have a Sony H5 camera. I just notice that if I go to take a picture I press the button, the green light flashers and then it snaps it with pressing all the way down


Greetings - That's how the camera was designed to work. Pressing the shutter half way down makes the camera auto focus. When it's in focus it turns solid green and you then press the shutter all the way down.

I suggest you read the getting started guide that comes with your camera or on line HERE.

Enjoy your camera and thanks for using Fix Ya

Didgatial camera


Greetings ashley 1980,

Internal memory on this camera is a small amount of space you can save photos without using an additional memory card. On this model it is 16 mb, which for a 4 megapixel camera is going to accomodate a limited amount of pictures. This would be more than likely about 10 pictures.

I hope this helps.

Camera wont turn on unless i take the batteries out


I tried alkaline batteries in this camera and it would only work for a few pictures, then it would go unstable and do unpredictable things. The lithium batterys also caused problems like the ones you described. As a last resort I found that there was a ni-mh battery for this camera. I could not find this accessory. I purchase some batteries and charger then installed them into camera. reset the camera using the reset function, then tested camera. It now works correctly and consistantly takes good pictures. If the camera does not work with the ni-mh batteries it might be damaged or bad.
