Many Sony HX5C users says that them have met the problem as yours. but the worker of sony says it's all right because the resolution of the screen is low, if you enlarge the image may it won't vibrating. And it won't influence the image quality when it's on PC.Anything help?
On Sony T100 and similar, its the vibration canceling unit, i had the same problem. if you have good hads you can fix it.( on your oun risk) 1) disasamble the camera, you will see black plastic box inside, this is he lens unit. 2) on the botom you see 2 scrwes, they are holding the CCD remove them and the ccd unit will come from the lens assembly 3) the next is the stabilizer unit it is the problematic one. it is located on the left side of the lens asebly and is held by 2 screws. you can test it by puling out the cable connected to it (the conector is just under the lens) and verifign that the problem is solved. ( you can leave it this way it will shoot fine just without the anti shake) 4) to fix it take it out ,remove the plastic cover, you see the lens on a plastic mount it should be glued to the magnet under it. the problem is that the glue fals apart. remove one of the pins on wich it slides, and take the lens and the magnet out. 5) reglue the magnet and reasemble the camera. 6) power up and test, for me that solved the problem
if you need more help you can mail me at adisarit(et)yahoo(dot)com this is spam mail so be prepared to wait a few days for reply. i have a document with pictures explaining the process ...
Hi! The problem you have is a faulty image stabilizer. It's a well known problem in these cameras. It's a hardware fault and I'm afraid you won't be able to fix it yourself. Usualy it requires the lens unit to be replaced. You should contact your local Sony service center or me at firstname.lastname@example.org - I give the best prices. ;) I work in a Sony service center.
the sstepper motor of the focus assembly has slipped out of its track. that motor is a very powerful one which can cause the vibration.
once u change the mode to take the picture the motor should run in both direction to make some calibration.
you cannot disable it. in the preview mode the optical assembly returns to it closed position and then the motor is switched off.
since it is a cybershot you need to be very careful in handling the camera if you have any plan to open it. it is recommended to be taken to the nearest service centre. any way the wheels might need replacement
I have the same problem with my Sony T-10. I brought it to a Laker game and it started vibrating in shoot mode. I think because it was so loud during the game when I did try to take a picture, it came out blurry. I shook it a couple of times and it went back to normal. I tried to take a picture in the car and at home, no vibration. I tried it in a night club, where it was loud...and the vibration came back.
There is a sensor in the camera that cannot focus on shooting under loud environment. I took the camera back to best buy for repair...and they said they have heard of such a problem. This is an internal damage inside that needs repair.
I had the same problem. The solution is in the manual but it is not straight forward. You have to set steady shot to auto when the shutter button is pressed half way down. The vibration warning will still show. At this point the camera is sensing low light. The to need to make sure the flash is set to always on. The flash setting for background will not turn the vibration warning off.
