Dim LCD Display on F505V

Just picked up the F505V and have noticed that the LCD is markedly dimmer than my DSC-S70 -- yes, the backlight is turned on and all settings are the same on both cameras. Has anyone had a similar experience? Do you think this is something that needs to be sent in for adjustment/replacement? Allso, the 505V seems to be more prone to red-eye than the S70 and the S70's colors seem more saturated. For those others of you out there with experience on both cameras, What are your thoughts?

Re: Dim LCD Display on F505V

I've not compared the two directly, but I can easily turn the brightness control on the 505v up to the point where the LCD it way too bright, so I don't think there's an issue in general. That doesn't mean that there is not a malfunction in your particualr camera, though.

I SEE the green light when I turn on the camera but LCD screen of Sony DSC-F505V is dark black, nothing happens-total silence and cannot take any pictures. Did I loose my camera? Solution?


Hi,

Based on the information provided it seems that the issue may be with the LCD Screen. You can check if the Camera is working by capturing images and inserting the Memory Stick in the Computer Memory Card slot. If the image capturing is normal then the images can be saved to the Computer. If the images are not getting captured, then the issue may be with the Camera. We can try power resetting the Camera to resolve the issue.
Turn off the Camera.
Remove the battery pack.
Press and hold the power button for 15 seconds.
Then, allow the Camera to remain without power for 60 seconds.
If the issue persists after resetting, then service may be required to identify the exact cause.

Thanks for using FixYa.

My DSC-F505V powers up but screen stays dark, nothing happens. with battery and a/c adapter. Thank You


The problem is well known for this model of Sony DSC-F505V. The circuit board behind the display is the problem. Its replacement code is SY-62. As symptoms, sometimes the camera start but next time stays with the display black and the green light on. Cheers

Just upgraded to windows 7 and there is no sony driver for dsc-f505v. Is there a handling for this?


It is so simple. Forget Microsoft and connect to a Mac. Everything is then automatic - no problems. I ask my wife to download my photos to her Mac and then send them to me.
Makes Microsoft look pretty stupid, I think !

Camera turns on fine. I could view picture and all. Just that when I switch to camera mode a video screen is blacked out. Why is that?


Your have a "Display" button that toggles thru different display modes .. one of the modes turns off the LCD backlight .. that useful if you are in bright light and dont need the backlight .. you have a very nice "transflective" display that works great in bright light without the backlight ... you can get more shots with the backlight turned off on each battery charge .(about 25% more) .

so each time you operate the display mode button you will get a different display .. one shows a hystogram .. one turns off the backlight and one puts the camera in a normal mode ..

if everything is working right then even with the backlight turned off you should be able to go outside or any brightly lighted area and see the picture on the screen ..

Memory card


Dear Starrr63,
I think the slot where you insert the memory card has been damaged or it doesn't make contact with memory stick. See inside slot in good light, hope you will find damage/tilted pins there.

LCD Display pschedelic colors


If there are random colour streaks moving around it can be due to defective CCD imaging IC. You need a skilled workshop to replace this and we can get you the parts from SONY and service manuals.
