Question about Sony Ericsson Walkman W810i Cellular Phone

Camera button no longer works

I have been on Esato and others looking for a solution....
this has been a great camera phone. I use it at work as a neuro doc- photos of patient movement disorders, rashes, etc. for documentation and training. Recently, the camera button no longer takes a picture. I figured out a workaround by pressing 6 at the same time, now that has stopped working.
things i have tried:
1) Flashing the camera phone
2) emptying camera memory/photos
3) checking software configuration

How much would this cost to fix? I am beyond warranty.
Many thanks

Can i use other Sd cards?


Sorry, but your camera only can work with SmartMedia cards. These cards are no longer common use. I your camera still can make great pictures, it must be like 12 years of age. It will be difficult to get memory cards for it.
Don't try to put a card in the camera other than a SmartMedia, or you will decently damage the camera.

I can't get my Dash to start the camera. No error, no nothing, just the camera is not working. What should I be looking for to fix it? Video recorder is also not working.


Try holding down the camera button for a few seconds from the home screen, and then let go. There should be a spinning circle on the screen. Wait for that to disappear into the camera application (the circle will disappear, and then the camera app will load up.) Also, CHECK TO MAKE SURE THAT YOU HAVE ENOUGH MEMORY ON YOUR PHONE. I think you should have at least 10 MB of free (unused) program and storage memory. Try these things. Also, this phone can be sluggish, so I would suggest trying to wait a little longer for the camera to open up. Also, try taking the battery out of the phone for 3 sec (soft reset) and then putting it back in and starting the phone up. Then open the camera FIRST before you open any other programs. I WOULD ALSO HIGHLY RECOMMEND BUYING A MICRO SD STORAGE CARD FOR THIS PHONE, and storing all your programs, data, AS MANY ITEMS AS POSSIBLE on it so that when you have to HARD RESET YOUR PHONE, if ever, you won't lose as much information.

Contact kodak if you want an estimate for repairs.

If your camera can change the exposure, exposure settings. You could just change it so your camera can absorb more light in dark places.

Faulty technika tv


A good way to test if a remote is working is to get a normal phone that has a camera on it.

put the camera option on the phone and point your remote at the camera phone. Press the button you believe to be faulty. whilest looking through the phone. if you see a little white light the button is working fine if not try a few of the other buttons to see if its the hole remote that is at fault.

the way this works is camera phone's dont like IR (infrared) so this will show as a little white light on your camera phone.

if it is the remote you could always buy a sky digibox remote. as the Default code will work your Technika tv. ie volume, channels, power, also the help button will change your source/av on your telly.

Hope this helps

Cheers

LG Chocolate: Camera Button reboots phone


The problem was solved by replacing the flex cable that connects the two halves together. My phones screen is back, all the buttons work, and the camera button no longer reboots the phone (also going to camera through mypix doesn't cause reboot either). The cable was very easy to replace and took me 10 minutes at most only using a screw driver and the info in the link I provided ealier.

I had the same problem. I discovered the answer. From my experiences, it seems to happen when I zoom in. Then it stops taking pictures (Capture button does not work) I sent my phone in to get fixed, and they said they replaced something, but i tried zoom again, it stopped working. So i was like wtf.
Anyways, how to solve this problem is to set your camera on the resolution / quality that DOES NOT allow zooming. After that has been completed, turn the phone off. Then back on and it will work.
