Toshiba camileo H10 camcorder. No picture. Screen shows Zoom 1 fail E AF PI fail /.


Hello Charles,

Just to be sure it is NOT a software issue, remove the battery then replace it back after about 5 minutes and then try turning it ON again.

The error you are getting is a "zoom error". A problem connected with your camcorder's optical zoom not working, it is either it has broken parts or something is caught in the zoom mechanism.

If something serious happened to it, like if it was dropped accidentally or a force was applied to it, then it is probably broken parts inside and needs servicing. Otherwise, it could be just dirt or sand stuck inside the mechanism.

To try and resolve the problem with dirt/sand you can:

Hold the camcorder with the lens facing the ground, then tap the side of your camcorder repeatedly.

OR

Use a canned air and spray it into the lens area of your camcorder.

When i zoom in the picture is all fuzzy


digital zoom is different from optical zoom. when using digital zoom, you have to keep the camera very, very, very still. may even have to use a tripod.

Zoom not working E61:10


Zoom motor in camera lens mechanism is stuck due to **** etc. You need to open camera, take out camera lens section and check zoom motor.

Do the above if you know basic electronics and have little experience of camera repair.
If don't, contact Sony Service to fix the camera.

White Spot


If this white spot is always exactly the same, but moves off the picture when you start to digital zoom and not optical zoom, there is probably something on the sensor. You mentioned that when zooming, eventually it moves. Are you in digital zoom mode at that time? (The switchover from optical to digital zoom is automatic, but you can disable it). Is this white spot blurry or sharp? Can you see fringes of the image at the edges? (This would suggest something on the lens).
If there is a piece of dust inside the lens ,you may be able to see it looking down the lens. How big is this spot?
Either way, if the camera is new, can you still return it?

Picture shakes when I zoom


I don't know how you can easily tell the spec for the anti-shake is working on your camera. There is a specific specification for how much it can compensate. There is a factory spec that specifies that with a specific lens magnification ratio, the camera can be moved a specific number of arc-seconds and display within a specific amount of movement error. At home it would be impossible to do a technical evaluation of this feature.

What you can do as a user is to read the instruction manual about the option and see how to make sure that it is turned on in the camera's menu section. It is possible that your model may not have the feature. This you have to check in the spec sheet that came with the camera.

When the anti-shake is turned on, you should see the picture appear to be more stable than when it is turned off. With high zoom settings, it will be less stable looking than with wider angles of zoom. It does have its limitations.

Professional photographers normally don't like the anti-shake feature for shooting videos. For still pictures it is a good feature if you want this type of performance. This is because with moving video taping when the camera is being panned in small motions, the smoothness of the pan is taken away. The stabilizer starts to work at the beginning of the pan and then it gives out in sort of stepping actions. This can create a sort of jerking type of pan motion in the pictures.
