    I cannot get anything to show up on the large viewing screen nor can I take a picture. In the viewfinder, I see on the right lower section, a flashing camera icon, probably the same icon as the steadyshot indicator. I have had this camera for 13 months and I am not pleased at the moment.

I just took mine to the camera store and the woman at the counter swapped out my lens. The camera now works and the camera shake icon is gone. Try changing the lens, this worked for me and I had the same problem.

    Pathologyrat here again. Now the LCD screen is inoperative and the camera shake icon is back. I can take a picture, but I cannot pull up the menu, focus, etc.

Is the Sony Cybershot DSC H3 an SLR camera? How does one distinguish an SLR from another camera? Thanks. Bill


No, it is not a SLR or DSLR camera. SLR cameras have a mirror in them, where as point-and-shoot class cameras do not. With an SLR the mirror allows you to look through the lens, so that you are actually seeing through the lens when looking in the viewfinder. With a point and shoot, even a superzoom like the H3, the viewfinder is actually a small LCD, showing you a digital *image* of what the sensor sees.

Another primary feature is that SLR and DSLRs have removable lenses. They also are typically faster, and have better lower light performance. On the downside they are typically more expensive, larger and heavier.

All DSLRs will be noted as such. In Sony's case, their DSLR line is named "Alpha".

Have a Sony Alpha DSLR-A300K. Let a friend borrow it and she used USB to download the photos to her computer. Ever since she did that, the camera does not work: specifically, all the buttons don't do...


Sounds like when she disconnected the USB cord, she didn't use the "safely remove hardware" function on her computer. You could try a reset from the menu if you could get into it. If not, try a manual reset...it sometimes works. Remove the card and battery...press every button...leave it alone for 20 minutes...insert the card and then the battery...turn it on.

Everytime i turn on and off my A200(sony DSLR) it shakes and makes noise,, and before it focuses on something it shakes and makes alot of noise?? wahts wrong with it?


It is not your camera, it is your lens, The af lens trying to engage and the gears are grinding. Just for verification go to your nearest camera store and try a different lens on your camera. They will not shake like yours.

Built in flash inoperative. Other functions still


Hi!
Yes, a well known problem for A200. The flash board has to be changed. You should contact Sony - I believe this a factory problem, so you should ask them to make it for at least half of the price. I work in a Sony service center and I have repaired a lot of these.
