If the camera is 1 year or less try for a warranty replacement.
If older - throw it away and get the next one
Theses thing dont get fixed.

Please recheck on the work that was done earlier as the mechanism could be jammed and not reponding to shut down. SInce the lens was taken out and reset if the auto focus/zoom mechanism was struck or jammed this can cause the camera to shut down.

I have a sony cybershot DSC-W120 (silver). When I power on the camera, the lens will not open? I am able to only review photos I have previously taken. What can I do to fix it?


Hi,


If the Lens Mechanism is stuck the lens in the Camera will not open due to the malfunction. If turning the power on and off again does not resolve the error message, try doing a power reset and Initialize option.

Performing a manual power reset

Turn off the camera.

Remove the battery pack.

Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds.

Allow the camera to remain without power for 60 seconds.

Reinsert the battery pack.

Turn on the camera.

To reset the Camera back to factory default, select the INITIALIZE Option from the Main Settings 1 Menu of the Camera to OK.This will set the user defined settings back to factory default. The images and videos will not get deleted.


If the issue persists, service may be required.


Thanks for contacting FixYa

My Nikon Coolpix S230 only takes blank pictures? I can view previously taken photos, but all new ones turn out black..?


The cc circuitry that controls the lens aperture and focus has malfunctioned, the repairs are not cost effective to fix. The only option is replacement "the cheaper way"

Its a Panasonic DMC-TZ3. all on a sudden, LCD is not working. Monitors remains dark when I press 'On' button and the photo taken are also dark. However old photos on the SD card I can in the screen...


Hello

If you can view the pictures previously taken with the camera on the camera LCD, but the new photos just come out black, this is most probably a blown ccd.

This is a expensive component to replace, and you will also need specialized equipment to do this yourself.

I would suggest that you take your camera to your nearest repair shop and let them test the ccd.

Hope this can be of help.

Kind regards

The lcd will display previously taken pictures but when i switch to picture mode nothing shows up


Look directly into the lens, if shutter opens. If not, replace the lens assembly. If yes, replace the CCD .

Strange picture appears in CCD


I see this problem everyday : the CCD sensor is faulty ( see enclosed pic from a canon camera with similar specs ) this is why you can not capture normal undistorted images but have no problem with playback .Fortunately Casio will repair this free of charge so contact your agent.1057f04.jpg
