Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W50 Digital Camera

2 Answers

Not able to shoot photos

Viewing the pics in the memory is OK
Batteries are OK
But on switching the camera on, it switchs off again with a beep sound
I do not know what is wronge, but I can not use it as a camera, only I can use it to view the already stored photos

When turning on the camera, it tries to open the shutters on the lens 3 times, only partially opening and closing, then says "access, turn power on and off again". It also sounds like it may have something loose inside, as it rattles.

OK, I have this camera and it started doing this to me about a week ago.  I assumed it had reached the end of it's life after many, many excellent photos.  As a last resort when the lens popped out after first switch on (when it's doing the clicking business) I grabbed the lens and wiggled it gently back and forth (as if zooming a conventional SLR).  It appears to have been fixed, remarkably!  I switched off and switched it back on and all seems OK.  (I'm not holding my breath and will probably keep looking for a new one but for the moment it's sorted out.)

Canon eos 1ds battery life


This is a year old post and I would hope you have an answer by now, if not no harm I guess.
The batteries that first came with Canon's 1 Series cameras where pretty good sort of. Mine is a (NI-MH Battery) and would last about 300 frames with lots of viewing and powering the IS lens. Big thing about these batteries you need to use them up completely before charging if you don't and charge the thing part way through the battery has a memory and you then get less use before having to charge it again. I then bought two more third party batteries which do not have the memory. When on a shoot I load up the Canon battery shoot through it and then switch it out for the "No Name" battery which B.T.W. is 2200mAh and I get about 500 frames, lots of viewing and powering the IS lens. Bonus was to me I got two third party batteries for half the cost of one Canon battery

Memory card error


Zeru

I have a similar problem with one of my older memory cards. I have replaced it with a newer one. I don't have the problem any more. I keep the old card as an extra, knowing that it will only store a few photos.

The comment by the GUEST sounds like a different problem. That problem sounds like the "memory card switch" is locked. This is physical switch on the memory card itself, and will not allow writing to the card.

try to remove the memory card first and turn it on without memory card, it has a built in memory by the way. if it works, throw away the memory card, If the problem is still there, try to shake it side by side. If it still dont works, it needs to be opened, something is stucked inside.

Shutter will not close. Appears to be locked with shutter out. Slider is ok. Not batteries. Cannot take a photo. Nothing shows up on quick view. Red light blinks for a short time. Makes a beep sound....


it´s normal in that kind of cameras it can be fine but after u shoot one pic with flash will happen the same, to fix the problem u will need to send it to a repair centre, they will isolate some stuff inside to prevent that from happening.
