    Try this first, rap the Cybershot logo on your camera with your knuckles. If that didn't help, pinch the camera to apply some pressure to the lower right corner of your LCD screen. If either of these seem to help, then the problem is likely a loose connection on the LCD cable (an inherent design flaw of the S40). Reply back here for more directions if this helped as the above is only a temporary fix.

Better yet, go to Sony's website and describe the problem your experiencing. Have heard that they have sometimes offered to repair it for free as the problem is so widespread (Note that it's not on any recall list though):

Pictures fuzzy when you look through the viewer.


The viewfinder and the picture lens are totally separate. If it looks fuzzy, and then comes out fuzzy, the capture screen inside needs cleaned. The main lens and viewfinder lenses should be cleaned too.
Get estimates before you say yes to the work. It might be cheaper to buy another camera, unless you can do the work yourself.

Sony Cybershot DSC-S500 bad photo resolution problem


Electronic shutter in lens mechanism got bad and you need to replace complete lens assembly of DSC-S500 camera.
Of course new lens assembly would cost more then camera worth so best option is to buy new camera.

Problem with recording the picture


See if your camera has an ISO setting. If it does, make it a lower setting. 100 is best and move up from there (try to use no higher than 400). The lower the ISO, the more light you will need but your images will be less grainy.

Lines on screen


Hi, I have the same problem with my sony DSC-S700. I think someone drop it, and it took pictures with horizontal line specially outdoor. I noticed that the lens shutter does'nt open and close. All I did was to tap on the lens several times and everythings back to normal. I so happy my camera is working again. Thanks to your idea. Brenton

Blur on LCD and on pictures taken


Sorry to tell you this but your CCD is gone. In a fwe days time pics will be black in color. CP 5400 uses a batch of defective Sony CCD's. Nikon's service center in Kolkata, India replaced the CCD in my CP 5400 free of cost. This was because Nikon has issued a service advisory. Try your luck with the Nikon service center closest to your home!
