20 Most Recent Sony Mavica MVC-FD95 Digital Camera Questions & Answers

Press the OPEN (flash) button. This button is on the side of the camera just below the flash. The flash mode button (lightning icon) is at the lower left on the rear of the camera. This only changes settings when the flash is up. This cycles through Auto, red-eye reduction, forced flash and no flash. The mode shows in the finder or the LCD screen. AUTO mode does not show.

From your description the lens housing has probably been damaged, and possibly other parts. Sony supports their products for so long and will not repair, because the camera is 11 years old and the cost to repair could be equal to a new one, I would recommend replacing it.

Any C13 error is a media error. First try formatting a blank disk in that camera itself. If that doesnt work, try blowing out the disk slot with compressed air. I wouldnt use canned air like you can get at office supply places because if the can is tilted some of the propellant can come out and gunk up the inside of your gear. If dry compressed air doesnt work, have it serviced by an authorized Sony repair shop.

I also have gotten this problem.
I have found that while using the Mediastick adaptor, I get this error when the adaptor's batteries get low. The adapter needs enough power to write to the memory stick, otherwise it writes too slow with low power, thus resulting in the disk error. Hope that helps you.

Try setting your picture size to a smaller size. If your pictures are used mostly for being viewed on a computer, or for smaller print sizes like 3x5 or 4x6, you should not lose any quality. The smaller file size does not take as long to write to the disk.

A Cxxxx error normally can be fixed by the user. I suggest you remove the battery pack AND the button cell (I suppose the FD95 has one) and leave it without both for at least half an hour. I would think that after that, it should be ok except that you'll have to set the clock and some other preferences again. Hope this helps.

This is a common problem with the Mavica FD95. There is a little switch in the drive slot to sense the write protect tab on the disk. 

If you hold open the drive door without a disk in, you should see this switch where the write protect tab goes. Try operating the switch with a matchstick a few dozen times to attemp to clean the contacts. If that doesn't work then Very carefully let a drop of switch cleaner run into the switch and try operating it a few times then let it dry. Failing that you might want to open the camera to get to the terminals on the switch and test it with a multimeter.

If the switch is faulty and a replacement is not availble then you could just short(or disconnect) it to fool the drive into thinking any disk is writable. 


Good luck

You need the MSAC-FD2M Floppy Disk Adapter. It's probably going to be hard to find these days.

Yes, the small white connector on the camera is the programming and diagnostic port for the camera. We connect a diagnostic connector to this for reading the state of the internal electronics. Upgrades, when needed are done through the port.

Basically you bought the wrong camera for your needs. The 95 can not do well under the conditions you describe. The ISO is fixed and to low for the amount of light you have available. The viewfinder begins to darken after the lens is wide open and the shutter speed is increased further. There are three possible cures. More light, not possible in your situation, faster lens or higher ISO, again not possible with your camera. Maybe you could convince them to play in the dayight. :)
