F707 and USB connectivity problem

I'm lending my son my F707 for a few weeks and he's having trouble getting his brand new Toshiba notebook to recognize it when connecting through the USB port. Could it be an issue of the new computer being USB 2 and the camera USB 1. He tried it with installing a driver and without. He didn't want to buy a card reader because he's just borrowing the camera. Anyone have any ideas? Thank you. Susan

Re: F707 and USB connectivity problem

Has he checked the USB port on the PC by plugging another USB device into it? Has he checked the XP device manager to see that the camera hasn't been hijacked as "Other device"? Has he checked the camera and its cable by plugging them into someone else's 2000/XP computer? (2000/XP don't need drivers for cameras and flash disks.) just some thoughts

Re: F707 and USB connectivity problem

I'm assuming his laptop is windows XP? I know for my computer XP lists my f717 as a romovable drive in "my computer" ..I then just drag the files into whatever folder in the hard drive and it automatically copies them..if it is windoews XP have him open up my computer and see if the removable drive is listed..

Can't get a connection for dsc-f707 camera to computer


Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

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.

My DSC-F707 won't record images.


Sounds like the CCD has developed a fault. I had a F717 which had similar faults but this turned out to be a batch of faulty CCD's which I know the F707 shared. This maybe why Sony are not keen to get involved as it will cost them money. JVC had a similar problem with some of it's Camcorders using a similar CCD and they replaced them FOC even those well out of warranty. Keep trying with Sony and mention the CCD and serial number of the F707 and see if it is one of the faulty batch.

Sony digital dsc-f707 startup goes to "no memory stick"


Could be that the contacts on the camera are oxidised. Try cleaning the contacts with isopropyl alcohol and see if this helps. If not, it could indicate a circuitry problem. In this case, you'd probably be better off buying a new cam altogether!

F707 Problem w/EVF and LCD screen


From your description, it sounds like what I've seen described by other people when something has come loose inside-- maybe a cable. If you do a search, I know there are posts where [crazy] people have pried open the guts of their cameras and have written out a step-by-step tutorial on what's in there. If you didn't feel comfy going that route, you might be able to send it to Sony for repair. My vote, if the camera works okay otherwise, would be to just live with it.

F707 type of memory stick?


I bought a Lexar 256MB, since the F707 can't use PRO or anything about 128mb, it has two 128mb on one stick. There's a switch on the stick to change it when the first 128mb is full.

DSC-F707 Shut Off


May I suggest you to do or have done following actions: Use a philipps size 0 screwdriver and open your camera body. Then look at all the flat cables, try and disconnect them thoroughly, rub them a little bit and reconnect them. Maybe if you have another digicam, it's a good idea to take pics of how the flat cables are connected and stacked, for easy re-assembly. All your problems sound like bad contacts. Maybe dust or corrosion... I bet your 707 can find a new youth!
