It's most likely that your camera has a lens error, this is such a common fault that I hope you don't mind me pasting my stock generic answer below. No point in reinventing the wheel!

Stuck lenses are probably the most common reason that compact digital cameras get thrown away, but there's a fair chance of recovering use of your camera again

The fault is commonly caused by dirt or grit blocking the mechanism, or due to it having suffered a recent fall. Another common cause is that the camera was in a pocket or bag and the power button accidentally activated and tried to open the lens against resistance. The mechanism may have simply become dislodged or there may be parts which have broken.

If your camera is still under warranty and has definitely not been subject to misuse then contact the Sony service department in your country to find out about a free repair. If the warranty has expired though a professional repair will far exceed the cost of replacing your camera. You will therefore have nothing to lose by trying to fix this yourself.

Please click here and you will be taken to an excellent article provided by the Camera Repair website. For the most part, you'll be guided on how to physically manipulate your camera to try and clear the fault. Although the article mentions Canon a few times, the advice applies equally to all cameras with lens errors and is not model-specific.

If the link doesn't work then cut and paste the following address into your browser:-

Sony camera downloading


Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo management program such as Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).

My camera canot take picture and focus adjustment,always showing error E:61:00 (sony cybershotdsc t-70 model )


Hello and Welcome to FixYa!

To solve Error E:61:00, Follow the given solution:-

Put the camera about a half inch from a hard surface.
Let the lens go out and hit the surface and retract a little bit. Let it go out all the way when it tries the next time.
If that doesn't fix it, try this:
Turn it on and let the lens go out fully
See where the lens comes out of the camera? The little round crack that surrounds it? Wiggle the lens a bit and blow in there a bit. (Be sure not to blow on the lens!)

Now turn it off/on again, and it should be fixed

My sony cybershotDSC-S700 camera shows horizontal purple lines in it's images shot.both the preview on the camera screen and the computer screens show the same lines.


Hi kris, it is most likely that your CCD is causing a problem, having worked with sony cameras for years, in my experience the only cure is CCD replacement. If the screen was a problem, it would not be ok on the computer. You will have to bring it to a sony authorized service dealer near to you. Hope this helps. Michael.

Hello

Unfortunately a "system error" message is not something that you will be able to fix. This error indicates a system failure and requires the camera to be sent in for servicing and repair.

You may find it more cost effective to purchase a new camera as opposed to the repair price on your current camera.

Screen message


Your battery is not making contact with all three contacts, thus making the camera believe you are not using an infolithium battery, creating the error message. Clean the contacts on the camera with isopropyl alcohol and the contacts on the A/C charger.
