Zooming in. when I try to zoom in for a close up shot, the display goes to a screen that says D: 3403, 3404, 3403, 3404, 3403. Why can't I do close up zooming any more?

Your camera jumped out of gear. Open the front metal cover and disassemble all arm working with the main motor gear and try to reposition the red dot on the big gear with the small gear side by side. Presto now your camera is aligned. Place all arms back in order to your new alignment.you got your self a working camera. D: 3403 3404 mean error = some thing is block your lense and stopping the motored gear. For future referance don't drop the camera agian, next time it might be a expensive fix next time around.

First it sounds like you want to zoom in takeing a picture . as i guess now it is in play back mode then the right hand zoom knop zooms in on a taken picture and the other shows the numbers of the pictures you took to select ..

Automatic shot off, the zooming lens is stock up in zooming position.,


Probably the battery runs out? Or maybe some issue with the battery.

Try to recharge the battery and see if the problem is resolved.

I have sony DSC-W290 Cybershot Digital camera. it has zoom of 5x. currently, zoom is working up to 1.4x.After 1.4x the more zoom i did the photo is showing blur(Not clear).


I would check and confirm that you are zooming using the optical zoom. It sounds like you may be zooming using the digital zoom, which would have this effect.

LENS PROBLEM


The slightly open shutter is the reason for this problem. Thank God you mentioned it.
Solution: Try with your fingers to shift the shutter “blades” back and forth to see if they move freely. If they do no move freely it maens the shutter “blasdes” and stuck by particles/dust/something. So you just continue to shift them like that untill they are free again. Once they are free turn your camera back on and it should perform as normal.

Problem with sony cyber shot dsc- w80


I jeremy- i was having the exact same problem today. I phoned Sony repair, who then had me take out the battery and hold down the power button for about 30 seconds..reinsert the battery and power up. Didn't fix it. I came home and read some posts on here. I ended up trying the gently twist the lens as it was zooming in and out..I twisted a little and pulled a little. About the third time, it worked. (I also held the power button down with the battery in, just to try..maybe that helped, too). Sony wants flat fee of $91 to fix..is that what they told you?

Batteries wear out quickly -- after 6 - 10 photos. I've tried a variety of brands and quality - both rechargeable and non-rechargeable.


Hi there Jeroldine.

Battery drain the one of the top things that make people upset over cameras. It siits number one over lens errors. The only thing I can say is that your LCD screen is the culprit. The LCD screen is a vampire that sucks batteries quicker than zooming the lens. There is nothing that you can do about it. The amps that a camera uses during normal operation is pretty severe.
You can do some things to help lessen the impact on your batteries.
First. Turn off your LCD screen. Use the viewfinder to sight in all your shots. You can save up to 75 percent of your battery life if you turn it off and use the viewfinder. Second is...zoom less. What usually happens is, you start to take a shot, and you want to get closer, so you so you zoom in. Then you might decide that maybe you have zoomed too much. Then you wind up zooming back out. - Instead, try and get closer to your subject if you can.
There is no magic fix for battery drain. Just remember that everytime you perform a function on your camera, you drain the battery. Hope this helps.

When using the zoom button the cam stops working


This suggests the zoom motor has failed. As you only purchased it 2 weeks ago - it should be replaced under warranty
