Question about Cameras

1 Answer

We found an old Sony Cybershot DSC - S30 camera laying around in our office. I was going to let my young son play with it as he would like a digital camera. I kept getting the memory stick error message. I ordered a new memory stick PRO Duo for it with a 4GB disk. It still shows the error message. Neither the old 4MB stick or the new Duo stick will allow the camera to format the memory stick. Any ideas??

    That makes perfect sense as I had a similar problem with my own digital camera recently by buying too large of a memory disk. I will see if I can obtain the correct size.

    Thank you very much - I should have probably known that from the start but when ordered the new adaptor that it probably would work. Oh well, thanks for your help.

    OK, I bought a 128MB stick and that does not work either. Still get the memory stick error message.

Hi,
DSC-S30 is an old digital camera that supports up to 128MB memory stick. Its hardware does not support 4GB memory stick.
Click Sony Support to get Mmeory Stick Compatibility Chart, click on Cybershot digital still camera icon on that chart and see DSC-S30 model number in approx middle of that page that clearly shows that this camera supports 32MB, 64MB and 128MB memory stick/ card.
You can buy 128MB memory stick from HERE for this camera.
Hope these info will help you.
Thanks.

    Insert memory stick in camera and format it through format option in camera menu, then it will work.

When i switch on my sony cybershot DSC-S30 camera


A letter and number error code of C:13:xx is an indication the recording media (floppy disk or Memory Stick® media) you are using is either not supported for use with the camera, not formatted properly, or is damaged or faulty.

WONT HOLD DATE/TIME, KEEPS REQUESTING TO RESET!


Hi there, been playing around trying to get camera going,as i took apart (easy enough, if you can handle a watch repair screwdriver) what i did find seems to be a standard watch battery located bottom left next to speaker. Pretty sure if you replace this, it should solve your problem. Just be carefull when taking out ribbon cable!

Cheers Greg.

Cybershot dsc-w50 records movies instead of pictures


I had the same problem with my camera.  I found that changing the mode from Multi Burst to Normal allows the camera to take normal pictures.  Go to Menu and scroll over to Mode, then select Normal.

Sony cybershot 4.1 DSC-P43


Hi
I bought a new 1MB memory card for this camera and was dismayed to find that the screen went completely blank - I couldn't do anything!!!! It was my sons graduation so had to buy another camera!
But, have just resolved this issue by pressing the bottom right-hand side of the screen with a rubber topped pencil - it works!!!!
This camera may be old and chunky but it still takes amazing pictures.
Hope it works for you too.
