Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-S40 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Is my Camera broken?????

Well, I have a Sony Cyber-Shot with 6.0 mega pixels, I don't know if that info matters, but anyways, I can't seem to take pictures. Actually I can still take pictures, but the image doesn't come in and then it's not good colors. Like the colors that appear are sometimes red-ish white or blue-ish white with like a black line that also happens to appear. PLEASE CAN SOMEONE HELP?!?!?!?!

    Well, I think it's on the camera display.

    You mean on the camera display? Or on the picture after transferred to your computer? If it is on the camera it may be just the display is damaged. May also be in some of the special settings for the camera (ISO, White balance etc)

Try a transfer to a computer or whatever you usually do with the media to determine if the photos themselves are affected or if it is just the camera display. If the photos look ok then we will know that it is the display and you could just live with it. I know of no way to repair the display cheaper than replacing the camera in most cases. If the photos are off in color it may be the settings in tha camera. Try to return to default settings (usually an option) or fiddling with them (usually set at zero or the center of a slide)

Well, I have a Sony Cyber-Shot with 5.1 mega pixels, I don't know if that info matters, but anyways, I can't seem to take pictures. Actually I can still take pictures, but the image doesn't come in and then it's not good colors. Like the colors that appear are sometimes red-ish and very very unsharp.

You can download the manual and more from the manufacturer's web site at
http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/model-documents.pl?mdl=DSCT300&LOC=3

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program, such as Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).

Skip using the camera for downloading and use a card reader instead. A lot of troubles will be eliminated.
A card reader is not expensive.
A card reader can be found in most electronic stores or on a site such as Ebay.

Try to right click on the image files while they are read on the memory card or on the camera hard-wired to your computer. Click on copy then click on your desktop of your computer to paste them. They may just be creating short-cuts rather than placing the file onto your computer.
