it's actually a failure with the lens mechanism, I just experienced the same situation....Sony has another T20 that they had the same situation with and they offered to fix the cameras until July 2011..currently checking if Sony will fix this defect in this T70

what you are experiencing probably is best described by this article:

Connect the supplied USB cable from your camers to theUSB port on your computer.
The computer will see the camera as an external storage device or anexternal mass storage device, you can then open the photo folder on your camera and copy the photos to your computer.If the photos are stored on a mini or micro SD memory cardthen -An alternate method is to remove the SD memorycard from the camera and insert it into an USB card reader then connect itto the USB port on your computer. Youcan then open the photo folder on the SD memory card and copythe photo 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, such as iPhoto on Mac or Windows Photo Gallery on Windows.

Dear Sir,

Welcome to Fixya Premium Support.

Sony has discovered that some DSC-T20 Cyber-shot cameras sold in the United States may experience an issue with abnormal internal vibration and an inability to properly focus and take pictures.

For cameras affected by this issue, Sony will provide free repair until July-17-2011. In certain units, the lens cannot adjust properly due to a mechanical failure in the lens mechanism. When the automatic features of the camera attempt to adjust the lens, the camera body vibrates, preventing it from properly focusing or taking pictures.

During the free repair period, Sony will provide customers in the United States a prepaid shipping label so that you may send your affected DSC-T20 camera to the Sony Service Center for free repair.


I think it helps.If you have query regarding this issue leave a feedback we were happy to assist you,

have a nice day!

If the Forced flash setting is already enabled and the flash is still not working, then the issue may be due to another camera setting. Even if the Forced flash setting is enabled, the flash will still not work in the following circumstances:

When shooting MPEG movies When shooting in the Twilight or Handheld Twilight mode If shooting with the Burst or Multi Burst mode Shooting with Sweep Panorama Shooting with the Fireworks or High Sensitivity mode. If an external flash is connected. Please make sure that the Camera is not set to any of these modes. You can check the manual to get the information to change the setting..
If the issue persists, please reset the Camera and make sure that battery is fully charged. If the issue persists after performing all the above mentioned troubleshooting steps, service is required.

If you feel that the above Troubleshooting steps, helped you. please rate my answer positively. Thanks for understanding.

I just fixed my white screen problem...

My problem was white display in photo mode; but in play mode was OK.
I could see on display old pictures, but I couldn't take new pictures (they were coming white also).

I have taken the camera apart as you see in youtube video:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HZqOxENaNVI&playnext=1&list=PL48FE02C236B89F6E
In the same video you see him taking off a component from the old objective and attach it to the new objective.
THAT was my problem.
There is a little electronic circuit on that component, and it has a little square black chip.
Few of its legs were not soldered properly.
I just re-soldered them, put everything back, and in less than 30 minutes I have fixed my camera.

I have to warn you....do it at your own risk.
Thereare some, no, all parts are so small, you need a good magnifier to seethem, a nice easy-steady hand and a good solder-iron with a very tinytip.
And of course if you have 30 years experience in electronics (as I do) = much better.

And when you think I spent some time online with Sony for a repair quote = ?120
I said better I buy another camera from ebay than paying that much...

Installing a new LCD is fairly easy in this model.
#1 Remove two bottom screws
#2 Remove four side screws
#3 Slide off silver side panel on the left Front side of the camera
#4 Carefully remove front cover (careful to pry off from the top)
#5 Flip over front cover and release the power panels ribbon cable from the system board
#6 Flip over plastic protector
#7 Remove Back Cover from LCD side
#8 The LCD is being held by 3 ribbon cables.
(This next step should be done very carefully - damage can occur if it is done incorrectly)
#9 Release the middle ribbon cable by carefully flipping up the black portion of the clamp.
Equal pressure should be applied to the full black portion when attempting to flip open.
Do not use excessive force.
#10 Release remaining cables and remove LCD.

To assemble just reverse the steps. We have color diagrams available just ask.

Thank you
