    i tried both things, master reset and update software, but it still didnt work... PLEASE if anyone has had this problem and got it fixed let me know how to fix it, my phone isnt under warranty and it would cost 100 to send it in, and for that i can get a new phone

  • szshaps Feb 20, 2008

    ok, so is there anything i can do about it??

  • kyalian Feb 22, 2008

    I have the same problem.

    My phone worked perfectly for the first month, then as soon as the warrantly was up, camera malfunctions.

    When I turn on the camera, it seems to work for almost a second (black screen, icons, etc) but then goes back to my main screen/menu/whatever I was doing before.

    Frikken annoying is what it is.

    I've tried all of the downloads and resets (even the ones that wipe EVERYTHING) with no luck yet.

    And the cost of sending it/taking it in is not worth it.

    pee.ess. The real piss-ass thing about the whole situation is that I got this phone to replace my old Nokia, same contract (they reset the time) and same plan. My Nokia had a very nice extra warrantly on it that cost me a few bucks. If I never claim this warrantly (which I haven't/wont) then at the "end" of my first three years I get it back as a credit. So basically Rogers is holding onto my money, won't let me use my warrantly for my current phone, and won't give me my credit/money back for another year.

Did you try to master reset th phone? If that didn't help try to flash the software on your phone with the Sony Ericsson update service.

    If these two things don't help then most probably your camera module has malfunctioned.

Oops i put d3000 and meant to put D5000. I dropped my camera and cannot view images on screen anymore. I can look at them via the computer, so camera still works just can't view.

Do you see anything at all on the screen? For example, if you press the MENU button, do you see the menu? If you press the playback button, do you see the pictures you've already taken?

Internal flash won't work anymore

Try a factory reset. In the menu go to the third spanner and select 'Clear settings'

To pop up the flash put the camera in manual mode (M) and press the flash release button and it should pop up.

My camera turns on but the capture button stopped

Be sure you have fresh batteries or fully charged rechargeables. Go into the camera menu and find "reset"...follow the on-screen instructions.

I bought a Sony DSC t700 approximately 6 months

If the built-in flash does not function, then the camera may be set to Auto and will only flash when taking pictures in poorly illuminated environments.
To set the camera to the Forced flash setting so it will flash regardless of the surrounding brightness, press the UP ARROW on the control button until a lightning bolt icon appears on the LCD screen.

If the Forced flash setting is already enabled and the flash is still not working, then the issue may be due to another camera setting. Even if the Forced flash setting is enabled, the flash will still not work in the following circumstances:
When shooting MPEG movies
When set to the Twilight mode
If an external flash is connected
If in the Burst or Multi Burst mode

Please touch the MENU option on the screen of the Camera.
Then, select the REC MODE under the MENU.
Then, select NORMAL under the REC MODE.

If you're not able to select the NORMAL under the REC MODE, try Initializing the Camera.

First, please touch the HOME on the LCD screen of the Camera.
Then, select the SETTINGS in the HOME menu.
Then, select the MAIN SETTINGS under the SETTINGS.
Then, select the Initialize under the MAIN SETTINGS.

If the issue still persists after performing the troubleshooting steps provided above service of the Camera is required.

It's required to physically examine the Camera to determine the exact issue at the service center.

I had this same problem. Go to Home / settings / main settings / initialize. This resets the camera and you will need to reset the date-time.
