Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-S40 Digital Camera

1 Answer

The camera keeps vibrating by itself

I got my camera few weeks ago and whenever I turn on my camera, it starts vibrating by itself. I don't know exactly what's happening, but something inside the camera starts shaking. When I shut off my camera, it stops. So when I try to take a picture, it comes out blurry since the camera is shaking. Does anyone know what the problem might be?

If its vibrating i would think its something mechanical. this isnt my forte but it sounds like when you turn your camera on the lens covering opens up and for some reason the gears that open it continues to rotate. if your comfortable about tearing things apart look in that area. better yet since its new let the warranty take care of it. this is not a solution just a hunch. let me know how it works out im curious.

The unit squeaks whenever turned on, no matter what level the fan is blowing (Lo, Med, or Hi). Started about a week and a half ago.


A rhythmic squeak sounds like either a fan motor bearing going bad or just vibration from the unit running thats wiggling something loose inside the unit.

While let's start here if you rarely use it please don't leave batterys in it as they will rust and pop open. Batterys have acid in them and will cause a bad connecting when installing new ones. Are the batterys rechargeable or just regular batterys if so I would start there.

White LCD screen


The LCD connection may be loose or the LCD itself broken. You may need to have a service centre replace the LCD unit.

P850 shuts itself off for no reason


Try using a liquid contact cleaner. I read about this fix on another site, worked great for me.
A product called DeoxIT in the U.S. is what was suggested, I am in Canada and can't get that here so I picked up a product from a company called NexxTech. Just a liquid contact cleaner.
Take out the battery of the camera. Put a few small drops of the contact cleaner on the power button and let it drip down into the switch. Rotate the on/off switch back and forth 5-10 times, put the battery back in and Voila! Fixed!
No more random on/off irritations, camera works just like it did before the problem arose a few weeks ago.
It worked great for me.
Good Luck!

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!
