    same problem, probably it was drop into 2feet high like was happen in my P1i. cold solder is cause probabaly but where is the area to be soldered.needs a block or schematic diagram to identify the section and parts to be soldered. i'm not a cel technician but a graduate of electronics so i know i bit.

    hope this suggestion will solved the problem.



    thank you and more power!

    I have the same problem...
    performed a master reset, still no fix, even re-installed the firmware.
    tested again by trying the video-call, and the front camera works, however as soon as I switch to the rear camera it hangs and nothing works.

    :( very sad and disappointed.

This is hardware problem not firmware ... not need to master reset or update firmware ... Just check at back of your P1i ... press softly/sense the camera part with your finger if the lense can be shake/unfixed then press softly the upper part of the camera .. the try open the camera application to take a photo shoot ... try & try again ... the bring your camera to service center ... ask to fix the camera position ... have a try ...

LCD is almost white , no picture seen, Video section is not responding


Hi,

This may be due to the LCD Screen issue or the CCD Image Sensor failure in the Camera.
To confirm the issue, please check if the previously captured images are displaying normally. The previously captured images and icons will get displayed normally if the CCD image sensor issue is there in the Camera.
If this happens only with the live view, then try Initializing the Camera.

The Initialize option works only if you're able to access the menu of the Camera, otherwise power reset the Camera.
The Initialize option can be done only if the Menu of the Camera is accessible. To access Initialize select MENU-->SETUP-->SETUP 1-->INITIALIZE-->OK.

To power reset the Camera, remove the batteries from the Camera and then press and hold the POWER BUTTON of the Camera for 15 seconds and then reinsert the batteries after 1 minute and check if the Camera works normally.

If the issue is not resolved after resetting, service may be required.


Thanks for using FixYa.

The screen on my camera is black. You can still see the text on top of it, the battery meter, and the flash sign but other than that, it's just black.

The RESET button is located at the lower right side of the control button. To reset the camera, press the RESET button using a sharp-pointed object.

My sony dsc-s980 keeps telling me to turn off and on the power. There was a problem with the barrell getting stuck but its seems to be working ok now but my camera still wont work


Hi,


Error: TURN THE POWER OFF AND ON AGAIN is displayed on the LCD screen of the DSCS980 Camera when the Lens Mechanism is stuck or affected by any malfunction. If turning the power on and off again does not resolve the error message, try doing a power reset and Initialize option.

Performing a manual power reset

Turn off the camera.

Remove the battery pack.

Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds.

Allow the camera to remain without power for 60 seconds.

Reinsert the battery pack.

Turn on the camera.

To reset the Camera back to factory default, select the INITIALIZE Option from the Main Settings 1 Menu of the Camera to OK.This will set the user defined settings back to factory default. The images and videos will not get deleted.


If the issue persists, service may be required.


Good Luck

The images apprear purple on the screen, and dark in patches. New photo's taken, come out purple. But existing photo's appear on the screen as, normal.


Hi,

If the previously captured images are appearing fine in the Camera, then the issue is with the CCD Image Sensor unit only. Check if the display icons are appearing normally on the Camera screen.

Try power resetting and Factory resetting the Camera to check if the issue can be resolved:
Power reset:
Remove the batteries from the Camera.
Press and hold the POWER BUTTON of the Camera for 15 seconds.
Then, reinsert the batteries after 1 minute.
Factory reset;
To reset the Camera back to factory default, select the INITIALIZE Option from the Main Settings 1 Menu of the Camera to OK.

Home-->Settings-->Main Settings 1-->Initialize-->OK

Faulty d40x


I would start by looking at all of the push buttons on the camera. One may be stuck down.

Hp M525 repair needed


My wife brought this camera home from work for me to look at. It had the sunken/broken power button problem.  The T-shaped hinge was broken where it connects to the power button section. I couldn't see any way to glue or repair it that would be strong enough so I came up with an alternate fix.
The actual power switch is below the broken button, just a touch below the "ON/OFF" text. I decided to make a button that pushed the switch directly rather than pivoting like the original.
I needed a push-button shaped object with a shoulder on it (so it wouldn't fall through the hole I was going to drill in the back). I ended up using a small green LED (3mm size I think). I drilled a hole big enough for it to move but not so big it would fall through. I cut the leads off flush with the body and sanded them flat. The hole I drilled lines up with the little bump on the original plastic switch piece.
So I put the LED in place, the original plastic piece over it and added a little bit of self adhesive felt (that you would stick on the bottom of something to protect your furniture) at the top where the silver button is (just to keep the original button from sinking inward). I put the back on the camera and checked that the power button clicked nicely. It did so I put the camera back together and it's as good as new. 
And it has a snazzy green power button now.
So if you are handy you can probably fix the camera yourself.
Good luck - Greg
