Question about Digital Cameras

1 Answer

Sony Cybershot DSC-M1 Dropped 18" to concrete.Camera seems to have been struck on the lense end. Everything works but except for viewing screen problems. 1/4 of an inch on the left side showes both preview image and part of the on screen indicators for battery etc. The rest of the screen is blank white. I powered down and up, did a reset and removed and reinstalled the battery, removed and reinstalled the 1 GB Memory card but no improvement.

Thanks for reviewing my problem.
I have contacted a repair shop in Calgary from Sony's list and the gentlemen there advised that I have a cracked screen giving only partial service. The repair is $200 and at that price not recomended considering the price of new cameras. He advised that the T series or even the P series might be suitable replacements with the cavet that the T series for constant personal and industrial use may be better if I avoided the touch screen option due to the costant in and out of pocket routine I follow. I have tossed some nice cameras (Nikon etc.) due to lack of local service. Westpeak Electronic Services Ltd. really seemed to be willing to attend to my problem accoding to my best interests.
I will look at the Sony product line as a replacement. The DSC-M1 has given me Gigabytes of still and movie shots from around the world and probably has 50 dents in it. Other than slaming it into a concrete floor I expected a few more years service out of this model. Another option obviously would be to find a salvage camera with a good screen and swap it out which could be a complicated time consuming undertaking.

When i switch the camera on the screen is black ,i canot see the image of the object i want to take sony cybershot dsc-m1


The CCD imager is faulty and it has to be replaced. A well known problem with the M1. Contact SONY and see if they will replace the CCD imager unit free of charge. They did but recently they stopped the free replacement for a lot of models.

Sony Cybershot Lens Stuck inside!!!


I have the exact same problem with my Cyber-shot; the lens is stuck inside. After trying everything to loosen it (like wedging a razor knife between the sections, even dropping it or banging it against a book, etc) non of which I recommend, I finally got it open by PUSHING on the black telescoping section surrounding the lens itself. For some reason, this worked!

My sony cybershot dsc-p200 lense is stuck.


Sony Cybershot DSC-P200 worked great then the lens stuck in the open position.
Read on this site some one suggested gently manipulating the lens and tapping it then turning it on. It worked!!

Sony Cybershot dsc-p73 dropped


I also dropped this camera from waist high and the lens was stuck out and would not retract or let me do anything. I ended up having it sent to Sony to replace the lens and it cost me $200. I paid $300 for the camera to begin with but to me this was the BEST camera I'd ever had and was worth it. Before repairing it, I bought a new Sony Cybershot DSC-W80 since the original one I had dropped was no longer available. I was NOT pleased with the quality of the new camera at all and it was supposed to be better than the one I dropped. That's when I decided it was worth repairing the broken one and worth the cost.

Cybershot


Haha, I have the same problem.
The lense is stuck.


I kept turning it on and off repeatedly.
And now I can view pictures on it again.
