It keeps saying on the lcd memory stick error!


remove the memory stick, you should be able to see the backend of the stick, push it in and it will pop out. after removing the stick try operating the camera again.

Memory stick error


Hi There, In the menu there should be a setting to set the camera back to factory. Try re-formatting the card. Try using a different card. The camera has some built in memory, take card out and shoot 2 pics on built in memory, is playback ok?
If not, card reader may be defective. Only service shop could tell you that for sure.
Let me know, mr cicmo.

Battery refresh problem


You will probably need a new battery as NiCd dont' last forever. However, before buying one, try out the camera on the mains adaptor. This will tell you if there is a problem with the camera.

Good luck

DSC-F717 On/Off switch Jammed


Greetings CarolineV

I have the same camera, and bought it about 5 1/2 years ago. Last fall I went to an outing with my family and spilled a small amount of coca-cola on the top of my camera. I immediately whiped it off the top, but some of the liquid got under the on/off switch and almost glued it shut. I asked my brother-in-law (an electrical engineer) what I could use to clean it with and that would not short-out the electronics and he suggested lens cleaner from a quality camera shop (which is all alchol based and therefore not going to short-out the electronics)

After about a week of putting a couple of drops directly under the switch every time I used the camera, it finally stopped sticking and now works perfectly. Not sure what is causing your problem, but you may want to try the same treatment and see if it helps - it won't hurt the camera, etc.

Good Luck!

My camera is not switching on


Could it be that they said it was too expensive to repair?

Anything can be repaired but not always below the cost of a new one.

If this is what they told you it might be due to a main board failure, which really is too expensive to repair.

A 40cm fall does not normally cause this much damage though?

Is there any damage to the casing of the camera?
Can you see the lens unit trying to move inside when you switch it on?
Have you tried resseting the camera at the button located in the batttery compartment?
Does the camera make the welcome sound at all?

Answer these questions and I might beable to to give you more help.

Good luck.
