Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-F828 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Random "mode flipping"

At random times while using the camera, the setting of the camera will randomly "flip" as if I was rotating the mode dial. On a number of occasions, the camera has settled on "play" mode and has to be turned off before it will be able to take pictures again. I have a 1 gig compact flash, but no memory stick. Is there anything I can do to try and fix this. The camera is more than a few years old and is owned by the DOC in Arizona.

    One drop where? Through top of dial, between dial and indicator or through side of dial near the bottom? Also, what will this do. The dial already moves smoothly. Thank you

    Help! I have the same problem. My camera was in and out of repairs for the past six months. Nothing was fixed.

    I have the same problem with my 4 year old F828. Did the wd-40 trick work? If so where did u place the lubricant, and did you have to disassemble any pieces?

I lost some files from my Ultra HD Flip Cam during the copy process to my laptop. I used a recovery software to retrieve the missing/deleted files off the Flip Cam without issue. I cannot play the...


file recovery softwares will find a lot of files, most of those files will not be recoverable though, they will have been overwritten and contain random content mostly, you can\t fix these files if they don\t play in vlc media player after being recovered.

the content has probably been overwritten, the files could be months old etc.

vlc can\t recognize the format because the files are corrupt. If a file is OK it will play back on vlc media player, if it does not play back its been corrupted beyond repair.

All you need is VLC and FFDSHOW, K lite pack has it, so you got all the decoders that you would need to play back a file.

frankly, you are just waisting your time if you don\t believe me.

Scroll thru setup menu and make sure you don't have it in time lapse mode...if it is, it will automatically take a pic every whatever time time lapse is set for.If it is, set to default and reprogram.

Photosmart pictures have random white circles


It sounds like you have a photosensor that is going bad. If it happens 80% of the time, it is time to fix it or repair it. I have a friend who can fix cameras, he is cheaper and faster than the manufacturer.

When the lcd is turned away from camera, everything backwards/upsidedown?


It's designed to stick to the surface of glass tube CRT monitors via three suckers. This does present problems for LCD monitors as the pressure required to make the suckers adhere could damage the flexible sandwich that makes up an LCD panel and more damage could be caused when attempting to remove the calibrator. Of course, ColorVision has designed the Spyder hardware to be LCD-friendly. Instead of using the suckers, an LCD adapter is attached to the calibrator, which prevents the suckers from gaining purchase and a special filter for use with LCD displays is also incorporated. The calibrator is simply left to hang in front of the monitor, without any danger of damaging it. IB

Casio Exilim EX-Z75 Digital Camera Trouble

1. Mode Dial not working, "Take-Picture-Button" not working.


If the camera was dropped, then it's really causing those kinds of issues like mode dial and shutter button will not work.

But you could still try these steps below:

First, do the POWER RESET:
- Turn off camera
- Remove batteries for a minute
- Reload batteries
- Turn on camera

Second, do the MASTER RESET
- Press on MENU button
- Press on the right button until you see SETUP 2
- Scroll down until you see RESET
- Press the right button to pick up on YES or NO
- Press on OK/MENU button for changes to be saved - Turn off camera for a few seconds so that settings will be refreshed

Third, if it still does the same thing, then your camera needs to be repaired by a technician.

If you want to know where you could send it, just call the hotline of the manufacturer of your product so you could get assistance
about this matter.
