Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-S700 Digital Camera

Cameras LCD has a flashing pixel that only appears when taking pictures

My two week old camera has a flashing pixel approx 1\8 inch to the left of the rectangular focus area. It is dark pink in color and seems to only appear when viewing real time. It doesn't seem to be there when I review my pictures or when using the menu functions. Is the pixel trying to tell me something (I must have missed it in the manual)? Am I receiving an alien signal ;-)

Dsc-s730 camera . The subject appears very dim/purple when I take a shot. Picture appears same on lcd or pc. My lcd/ribbon cable must be faulty .? I can view old pictures on lcd screen perfectly .


a CCD problem would explain the lines on your pictures and the lines on the LCD (since the CCD is used to feed the live image). CCD (Charge Coupled Device) is one of the two main types of image sensors used in digital cameras.

Some symptoms of a defective CCD include distorted images or abnormal colors, scratchy purple lines, blank or black pictures, and/or black videos with good sound being recorded on the camera's flash card.

When a picture is taken, the CCD is struck by light coming through the camera's lens. Each of the thousands or millions of tiny pixels that make up the CCD convert this light into electrons. The number of electrons, usually described as the pixel's accumulated charge, is measured, then converted to a digital value. This last step occurs outside the CCD, in a camera component called an analog-to-digital converter.

In order to correct this issue, the repair facility needs to replace the CCD. This is not something you may do on your own; check this article for additional details: Bad CCDs. This, isn't a good new, but hope helps to solve it.

Hope this helps to solve it (remember to rate and comment this answer).

Sony cybershit dsc-s700


I have an old cybershot 4.1 MP camera. Its LCD screen is lit but no menu or other buttons work. I can not view what I am shooting but it does take pictures when I point and shoot and the flash works too. The T and W controls work too. I can transfer whatever pictures it takes to my PC. How can I get the LCD display to work?

Picture Resolution?


Picture resolution is the total number of pixels in your picture (those little colored dots when you look really really close). It's expressed in megapixels and is simply the product of the number of pixels in the width of the picture times the number of pixels in the length. For example, a 7.1 MP camera takes images with a resolution of 3072 pixels width by 2304 pixels height ( 7.1MP = 3072 x 2304).

Pixels/inch refers to the resolution of your picture on some external viewing device (printer, computer monitor, etc...). It has nothing to do with the settings on your camera. It's equal to the number of pixels in the picture divided by the width of the displayed picture on the device. For example, an 8 x 10" printed picture has a width of 10 inches. If I wanted to take full advantage of my 7.1 MP picture by printing it as an 8x10, then I should look for a printer capable of printing 707,789 pixels/inch. Now I'm pretty sure there's no printer currently capable of this feat.

The example above shows that the rush for more megapixels is not necessarily where consumers or camera manufacturers should be focusing their attention. Most people really only need something around the 3MP range for printouts or display on their monitor screens.

My picture is blurry or out of focus.


ake sure your subject is within the camera's range. You should be at least 20 inches away to take a picture without the flash, and 20 inches to 8 feet away to take a picture with the flash. You can take a picture as close as 8 inches in macro mode. When you take macro close-ups, make sure you have adequate lighting (with the flash disabled). Using a tripod will help you capture sharp pictures. Make sure you hold the camera steady after you press the shutter button (until the red light starts to flash), and your subject isn't moving. If you are shaking the camera when you lock the focus, a warning icon appears in the right corner of the LCD. If you want to photograph a moving subject, you can change the shutter speed while the camera is connected to your computer. Try increasing the shutter speed. See Chapter 4 for more information about how to change the shutter speed from the LCD menus. Make sure your flash is not set to flash off. When you focus on a nearby object, your picture's background may appear blurry. Try changing your focus.

What should I do if the picture is blurry or out of focus?


Make sure your subject is within the camera's range. You should be at least 20 inches away to take a picture without the flash, and 20 inches to 8 feet away to take a picture with the flash. You can take a picture as close as 8 inches in macro mode (2.3" zoomed to wide). When you take macro close-ups, make sure you have adequate lighting (with the flash disabled). Using a tripod will help you capture sharp pictures. Make sure you hold the camera steady after you press the shutter button (until the red light starts to flash), and your subject isn't moving. If you are shaking the camera when you lock the focus, a warning icon appears in the right corner of the LCD. If you want to photograph a moving subject, you can change the shutter speed while the camera is connected to your computer. On the PhotoPC 3000z you can also use Program (Sports Mode) or Manual (Shutter Priority) to increase the shutter speed. Make sure your flash is not set to flash off. When you focus on a nearby object, your picture's background may appear blurry. Try changing your focus.
