Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-F828 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Dropped camera Though my camera was in a well-padded case, the contact with the cement in the metro-station was too much. Should I bother paying $211 for a Sony authorized dealer to even look at it, or should I apply the $211 to a new camera? The camera turns on but no longer takes pictures and won't shut off unless I remove the battery. My thanks in advance.

    Can you be more specific about the chip? I've looked through the service manual and it's difficult to tell what might have gotten jarred around in a drop.

Yamaha DD-65 pad 2 has lost its sensetivety, if i hit it really hard it works, but when tapping it lightly like i can with the other pads, it does not sound. I have only just bought it second hand so...

There is a setting to use that sets for using either sticks or by hands. If a single pad is thee problem, likely the sensor has come loose. Most of these use a piezo disc pickup and this may have separated from the pad. Open unit carefully and check for this visually. If separated, try to analyze what type adhesive was used. It is likely a contact cement. If so, clean surfaces of residue and use contact cement following the direction. Let dry overnight per the label on the cement. Be careful of the cables in the unit when opening. Keep track of which screws go where. They sometimes have different lengths and threads.

SG4 Skycaddie has broken screen - is cost effective to repair?

Generally no. The way replacement parts are priced you
won't be too far behind what a new one is. Having said that I just checked prices and you are paying a premium price for it so it might be worth it. A replacement screen IF you can find it should cost about $100 plus labor and shipping. Here the trick, you may not have warrenty but check for it. And see if they offer repair/replacment services. Most GPS manufacturers will repair or replace the unit for a nominal fee right around $100. You either get a refurbished unit or a new one back. The nice thing is that they are not too picky sometimes on whats wrong. So if you ran it over with the truck and then dropped it in the microwave they usually don't care. Do that with a laptop and they scream user abuse and tell you not very nicely to go away and not bother them.

My nikon d40 dropped on concrete, but there was no physical damage. However, now it wont take pictures anymore and gives a *whirring* sound when i click on the picture snap button. Any advise???

You may not see damage but obviously bouncing off cement is not good for delicate camera electronics. Some serious damage has happened to your camera.

If under warranty send to manufacturer. You will likely have to pay for repair but waranty may cover some of it. As always weight the possible costs of repair with the purchase of another camera.

Yellowish lcd intermitant problem

Problem is in bad contacts in LCD area. In some cases it is sufficient only to clean the flat cables connecting LCD and the main board. The solution for this kind of problem is a job for a pro. In order to stay on a safe (rather than sorry)side, please contact a technician with the best references. If you need more info please advice

Losing sound in certain modes

I get the same problem with my Nakamichi, but it never bothered me much, since i can't notice any quality drop, besides, its only radio. I remember it happens only on certain stations though, which leads me to believe it might have to do with the broadcast itself which oscillates and varies in amplification from station to station, and is affected by weather and geography. If it really botheres you, try getting extra juice amp for your tuner from some specialy electronic store. Good luck
