Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-S40 Digital Camera

3 Answers

HELP! Ok, tomorrow I leave for a trip to New York. I have been reading these questions and I have found that the camera has the same problems across the board. My LCD goes white...nothing is displayed, not even the playback image. It makes sounds like it is working, but it is not. I can't find the reset button anywhere. I have looked in the memory card area and the battery, but I can't find it. Please, if you can help, I need it by tomorrow.

    Unfortunantly, I don't have time to buy a new one (I live an hour from the nearest store) nor the funds.

    Hopefully I can still upload things...I haven't tried it yet.

As I understand, the flex connector to the LCD screen is rubbing against a support rib on the inside of the camera and causing it to short. This is a design flaw of the camera. For a quick temp fix, GENTLY press on the lower right corner of the LCD screen. For a more permanent solution, you have to pop open the camera and do something about that support rib. A bit of hassle, but it beats buying a whole new camera, when you have a good one that just has a small engineering defect.

I had the same problem but now it's fixed!!! Removing the batteries did not help. I simply tapped the screen with my fingers and all of a sudden the LCD screen is working again. Before it was all whited out when I turned the camera on. Lucky - but I was just about to throw the camera out!! Hope you read this and it helps!

Battery door cover on digital canon sd 1400 is is missing. lil rubber piece, door is ok but there is a hole and few lil holes exposed where that protective piece belongs.


Hi,
If you're in the east coast or near New york City you can send the camera in to us and we can just pop a new door onto the camera. Usually it's just $15.00 to do that. Give us a call.

Check make sure you did not lock the pictures.

You can lock through playback menu settings or from quick key (little lock key on camera).

Also some mem cards have a little slide lock to protect images from being erased.

Hope this helped. Good Luck! enjoy your trip. Need more help comment back.

Shutter won't fire...(same ol' same ol' with a new trip.)


By releasing the magnet on the bottom as you have described, the shutter curtains will run together since there is no electrical current charging the magnet to hold the 2nd curtain. No Worries..
