On Sony T100 and similar,
its the vibration canceling unit, i had the same problem.
if you have good hads you can fix it.( on your oun risk)
1) disasamble the camera, you will see black plastic box inside, this is he lens unit.
2) on the botom you see 2 scrwes, they are holding the CCD remove them and the ccd unit will come from the lens assembly
3) the next is the stabilizer unit it is the problematic one. it is located on the left side of the lens asebly and is held by 2 screws.
you can test it by puling out the cable connected to it (the conector is just under the lens) and verifign that the problem is solved. ( you can leave it this way it will shoot fine just without the anti shake)
4) to fix it take it out ,remove the plastic cover, you see the lens on a plastic mount it should be glued to the magnet under it. the problem is that the glue fals apart.
remove one of the pins on wich it slides, and take the lens and the magnet out.
5) reglue the magnet and reasemble the camera.
6) power up and test, for me that solved the problem

if you need more help you can mail me at adisarit(et)yahoo(dot)com
this is spam mail so be prepared to wait a few days for reply.
this was tested and worked on 2 additional cammeras

Just wanted to say thank you. This was the EXACT problem my DSC-T100 was having, Really not to bad of a fix if you have the right size screw driver, and are careful not to get any finger prints or grease on the CCD and the lens in the stabilizing unit. Awesome!

My digital camera vibrates


Hi! Make sure you didn't accidentally turn off the "Steady Shot" mode. You can change this mode through the ''Menu'' button. If this is not a reason of vibrations, use manual for your device. You can try to find it here

Why does my Sony cyber-shot model DSC-T70 vibrate and what can i do about it?


There is some steady-shot mechanism in camera lens that start vibrating due to some reason, this mechanism will be replaced to fix your camera issue.
It is not user level fix so take it in local camera repair shop.

Nikkor 70-300 f/ 4.5-5.6 AF noise followed by "click"


Well most AF mode do make a noise of some sort because its trying to adjust for a clear shot. I've played with several cameras and their features and notice this is a common thing, its usually the camera. But if your really worried about it and it does bother you, just take it in for a service. Maybe because of you dropping it several times, the noise is more louder now.

Check the compressor fixation are okay.Normally it should be on rubber parts fixed to the bottom.If one of them is not fixed it can vibrate.

Problem in Sony DSC T20


Call sony to see what they can do. Other than that their isnt many repair shops that are much less than what they quoted you. Or if you are good with mechanics it isnt hard to change the motor. Just purchase the exact same camera, a broken one with a different problem, off ebay or something similar and exactly how you take the motor out of the parts camera is how you would with yours.

Camara vibrates


Hi kundaj,

I wish there was a simple solution, but sadly there isn't.
It's the camera's lens motor system that's gone bad. Best thing you can do I think is get a replacement if you can and then extend warranty.

Cheers
