When memory card is inserted the camera wont work

You can insert CF memory and some memory stick cards when you use a special adapter. When you use a memory tick, make sure it is compatible, because the memory stick is the most incompatible memory card, if you have not the correct one. When you use a CF memory card, check all contacts. Not one contuse pinn in the camera should be belt a little. Use a bright light and a loupe to check.

When I turn my A350

The lens gears are stuck. If dust/lint gets into the gears the gears will get stuck and will make a vibrating noise. After a while the camera shuts off and will flash the error code for lens error. Unfortunately there is nothinng you can do about it as it is extremely tough to disassemble these things. May be your local camera tech can help you. I do not recommend that you try it yourself as if any part of the lens assembly gets slightly kinked the next step will be the bin.

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.

Same as owner of a350


The live view sensor is gone out of alignment.The problem was common on Alpha models up to 5xx series, when the sensor was replaced with a more reliable one.

The camera must be repaired, the sensor may need replacement.

Here one of the many forums on the topic.

The repair is not expensive, you can get a quote calling Sony contact number, or you can get a quote from a third party repair service here:Repair.

My Sony A100. When connected to a computer via the

I just had the same problem tonight, actually. It's because I just started using the Memory Stick Pro Duo Adaptor for compactflash slot. Make sure the camera is not plugged into the usb slot. Go to menu, go to settings tab (the wrench icon on top), down twice to "Transfer Mode" and select PTP. If it doesn't work you can always change it back. I noticed also that in PTP mode, it might not let you delete images after copying. ??
That's all I have at the moment. Good luck.

Pictures keep getting corrupted and recently red

Does the camera have a "reset" function in the setup menu. Have you tried formatting the card in the camera recently (download any pictures first)

My Sony DCR-SX41 has the wrong time stamp on a video I took back in 2020 and says 2009. Is it possible to change that date to the proper one or is it stuck like that?

No you are stuck with that date. It is encoded and added to the footage in real time.
