Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W55 Digital Camera

1 Answer

The SAF that shows up on the LCD

Sometimes when the SAF shows up (don't know what it is or how to turn it off), the picture won't take. I was out take a picuture of a house to do an analysis on a neighborhood at 6:30 last Saturday morning, and when I got there my picture would not take, I had to keep moving it to different settings, hoping I would not have wasted my trip.

I cant find my manual fast enough and dont' know what this means,.

Thanks

Vaio LCD problem


Periods.......Nice little items because they denote the End of a sentence.
See how this works?

"I have a vgn cs36gj, I was working with it, suddenly the LCD became pale black, I connected it to external monitor and it has a picture, sometimes after turning on for 30 minutes LCD start working normally, but after turning off and disconnecting power when I turn it on, it only shows a pale black picture, you know it is on but only black!"

Now you try it.........

"I have a vgn cs36gj. I was working with it, suddenly the LCD became pale black.
I connected it to external monitor and it has a picture."

Okay, I got that part.........

"sometimes after turning on for 30 minutes LCD start working normally, but after turning off and disconnecting power when I turn it on, it only shows a pale black picture, you know it is on but only black!"

WHICH LCD?
Laptop LCD?
External monitor LCD?
Man on the moon LCD?

1) If the external monitor LCD goes 'pale black', the problem is the graphics chipset.
This I do not believe

2) If the laptop LCD goes pale black, this I believe.

you can only replace lcd's not fix them, take the item back for a manufactures warranty replacement- it sounds like the lcd pixels dead or at least on its way, also a possibility the lcd controller is malfunctioning

I have the same problem this guy had: I have a Sony Cybershot 8.1 megapixels. Every once in a while the screen will turn black when I turn the camera on. The display will come up (shaky hand, flash, etc.)...


The camera either has a stuck aperture inside the lens or a bad CCD sensor.

The aperture is the opening that allows light to enter the lens. If it's stuck closed no light goes in, so no display on the LCD and solid black pictures. The way to fix it is to replace the lens. You can try tapping or banging the camera on it's side on your hand or even gently on a table. This might unstick the aperture for a short time, but it will just stick again later.

If the CCD is bad the sensor won't show anything other than solid black, or sometimes purple/pink smeared lines. Again the solution is to replace the lens assembly, or look for a used CCD online and just switch that out instead.

Hope this helps!

My sanyo hdtv shows no pictures when you turn it on (the screen is black) but you can hear the audio. The remote control can change the channels and volume up&down but the picture won't show


Good day!


The problem of your TV could be the inverter board or the cold cathode light is busted.

Follow this instruction on how to fix that problem:

  1. Remove the back cover of your TV.
  2. Look for the Inverter board.
Inverter board looks like this:

3. Check the input voltage of the inverter board if have 24vdc.Using multimeter (range on DC)
4. If you have 24vdc,check the output voltage of the inverter board it should have 500vdc.
5. If you don't have 500vdc output on the inverter,replace it.
6. If the you have the output voltage on it,the problem could be the busted cold cathode light (C.C.T).Replace it.

I hope this solution will be helpful.Thank you and don't forget to rate my answer.

Will not take pictures


SAF is single auto focus and would not be the cause of this malfunction. try pressing shutter button a little harder and make sure that you press it fully down. if not try initializing settings. go to menu then go right to setup to find initialize.

SAF error message & blurry pictures


maybe you need a new memory card if your card is full sometimes it can cause a camera not to work or shut down because of an overload of files.  If you memory card is not full most likely your camera has a defect to it. I suggest you take to a person who specializes in fixing cameras by your company. For the burry picture thing, there are different settings on a camera and I'm pretty sure that there is one to sharpen the picture images.

F710 turn off


THIS MAY NOT SOILVE THE PROBLEM ... BUT MAY DELAY YOUR CAMERA GOING TO THE "OFF" MODE. TURN CAMERA ON AND HIT "MENU" ... SCROLL DOWN TO "SET-UP" THEN SCROLL TO "LCD POWER SAVE" SWITCH IT TO "OFF". I HAVE A FUJI 650 AND I LOVE IT ... THATS HOW I GOT MINE TO STOP SHUTTING DOWN BETWEEN SHOTS.
