Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-F717 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Display and viewfinder greenish, pictures ok though

For some days, both LCDs on my camera show a monochrome, green picture, kind of like when in infrared mode. But its not, and also all menus have the same tone (even in 'Set up'-Mode). The pictures it takes are just fine. Some weeks ago, the screens were kind of blurry, coloring vertical edges. But since that fixed itself after a while, I didn't pay attention to it. I suspect it has something to do with a damaged cable for the red and blue color components, since a broken CCD or broken LCDs seem unlikely judging from the symptoms(?)

Ccd is the main suspect. Try cleaning the contacts of the flexible film connectors attached to the CCD or replacement is the only alternative.Sony does not supply the CCD and the whole lens which is expensive has to be replaced. Stay in touch

How do I take a monochrome shot


Checked the manual, but it does not show all scene modes. So I'm not sure it can take monochrome pictures. You should check there.
If you want black and white pictures, I advice to set up the capture mode to RAW and later in PS, light room or elements convert them to B/W (other brands of photo program's will do)

I have the swann 8 channel platinum cctv camera system and whilst it works with amazing quality during the day, the night vision is almost non-existant, it won't trigger cameras and is very dark on sc


Nearly all cameras work well in the day. Night vision depends on the type of camera and the technology it is using. For example a CMOS based camera will provide a very poor quality picture in the dark. A CCD Super HAD CCD II will provide a good picture with 0.01 illumination and a EXVie HAD CCD II will provide an even better picture with lux of 0.001. You really need to look at the specifications of the camera before you buy and not go with the "Platinum" or hype keywords used by the manufacturer. I have seen a lot of SWAN Cameras which are basically useless at night.

Does nikon D5000 work with infrared


If you're asking about an infrared remote control then yes. It will work with the ML-L3 remote or equivalent. You will have to set the shooting mode to one of the two remote modes to do so.

If you're asking about taking infrared pictures then not so well. The camera has an infrared filter that masks out most infrared light from reaching the sensor. There are companies such as LifePixel which will remove the infrared filter to convert your camera into an infrared camera.

I have nikon coolpix s210. when i turn on the camera, the view finder screen is black, i cannot take pictures as they come out black. though the flash and other functions work well. i can also see photos...


This problem (the screen with no picture) can be caused by a number of problems). One is that a connection with in the camera has disconnected. Another is the possibility of the LCD being bad or broken (some of these LCDs are hard to detect broken screens). Another problem could be with in the circuits has stopped working. Another could be that there is a problem with the CCD sensor. If any menus can be shown, then the problem is within the lens or sensor or something related. If you can see nothing on the screen, no matter what you pick, then the problems are harder to detect as to what is wrong.

Why black and white pictures are coming frm my camera when it is in p mode or tv mode or av mode?


P, TV and AV are non-automatic modes and can be setup to shot how you want. To remove the Monochrome from this just press the Picture Style button and select Standard (the Picture Style button is the one just under SET).

The "camera ready" light starts out green when I turn on the camera, and then changes to blinking orange, and won't let metake a picture...fresh batteries don;t make a difference.


You can try to set all the menus to default, but this camera may need repair.
Make sure you have the right kind of batteries.
Putting in the wrong kind of batteries may cause errors.

My camera is showing blurred pictures when taking pictures help


Try reseting all menus to default, then try again to test.
Make sure the lens is clean.
Do the menus appear clear?
Has the camera ever been dropped or had any other damage? This could get the lens out of focus, and would need repair.
Does blurring happen when zooming or when taking a picture of any kind?

No picture


The green connectors are for PIR (passive infrared ) motion sensors to be connected, they have nothing to do with you recieving a signal from your cameras. Double check to make sure the camera jacks are securely connected on both ends (camera & monitor) , and then hit your AUTO button which should automatically cycle through your cameras if you are indeed getting a signal. If you arent, you have other issues. As to the monitor getting darker. You will need to adjust the brightness from day to night unless you have an alternate light source or IR(infrared) Illuminator for night viewing.
