F828 Will Not Power Up

I got my F828 back from Sony last night via UPS. It was sent in for repair of a broken bettery latch (second time for the same repair). This time after being gone one month, it comes back with a "Passed QA" sticker on it. Thanks Sony, the sticker looks very nice. Oh, one small problem... now the camera will not power up. I have tried more than one battery that works in another camera, so that is not an issue. I have also reset the camera using the reset button found under the batter cover door. Any ideas short of sending it back at my own expense for the third time.

Re: F828 Will Not Power Up

I also had a similar problem, except mine would not power off. It worked fine before I sent to Sony repair for some other warranty work, but when it came back I loaded the battery, shot a few pics and could not turn the thing off! Kind of frustrating walking straight back to the Sony store and send it back the same day. You're right it does take a long time for Sony repairs, but at least the tech was nice enough to phone to discuss the problem. In my case they replaced the system board and ribbon cable and has been working pefectly (knock on wood) for a couple of months.

Have you tried with the AC power cable?

My DSC f828 sony camera's lens is loose. Sony says it is not worth repairing. Surely there must be a way to fix this ? thanks


I'm not sure what you mean by "loose". Does it still take good pictures? If not, then Sony is correct...the camera was introduced in 2003 and the cost of repair would far exceed the camera's worth.

Sony DSC-F828 Faulty Flash


Try resetting the camera. It is next to the battery release. I had a similar issue and posted help. No remedey. So, after praying about this issue, I was lead to power it down and eliminate all the power by taking out the battery push the power button and many others. I found the reset button pushed it and it is all working now. The praying for a solution was key. Praise Jesus. DRD

Sony F828 taking weird lined shots


Sounds like the chip has gone! I would take it to a repair shop and get a quote before fixing it. Could be that it would make more sense to replace the camera rather than replace the expensive CCD chip in it, especially if it's done a lot of work as the shutter, or aperture could fail in the near future! sorry!

F828 - Movie Mode


By frame size and frame rate I think. The F828 (in highest quality mode) takes 30 frames per second (fps) at 640x480 pixels. In the US televisions display video at 30 FPS (actually it is 60 fps but only half the frame gets displayed at a time so it nets out to 30.) I'm not swure what dedicated camcorders do internally but I've run my F828 videos on my TV (27" non-HDTV) and they look great. I've got no interest in buying a dedicated camcorder. Things might be different if I had an HDTV.

DSC-F828 Battery Latch


I suspect if you write a cordial note to Sony they just might fix it even though it is a few days out of warranty. I personally have had extremely good service from Sony (Sony Germany that is).
