Question about Sony Mavica MVC-FD73 Digital Camera

2 Answers

Same problem as other person, do you have a solution?

I use(d) a Mavica FD73 for five years. I sell antique jewelry and silver online, and therefore need a camera with an exceptional macro mode. The FD73 provided me with superb close-up shots of the pieces I was photographing. However, two days ago I was photographing when the shutter button apparently just stopped working. Everything else on the camera works: playback mode, picture mode, the buttons all work. It's just that when I press the shutter, nothing occurs (i.e., the flash, if turned on, does not work; the green dot on the LCD does not appear; and of course, no picture is taken). Has anybody ever experienced this before, and if so, is it anything I can fix without paying ~200.00 to send it to Sony and have it fixed? (I can buy a replacement on eBay for that much, so I do not want to do that).

What to look for while purchasing the authentic silver jewelry for myself?


Higher quality silver jewelry is stamped with the number ".925". I believe it is law now if the item is said to be sterling. The meaning is that the content of the silver is 92.5% with 7.5% as a base metal. The total representing 100% of the piece. Pure silver(100%) would be too soft for jewelry and would deform even during normal wear. So the base metal is tin or other inert material to lend strength. Look for items that say "lead free" as this was used as a base metal at one time. Hope this helps.

Mvc fd73 disc error


If this has happened with several floppy disks, then it is likely that the cameras' drive has failed. It is common in the FD73. There are several of that model on eBay right now. You can find them in Cameras and Photo, search fd73. A few are less than 50$, which is less than a replacement drive will cost to replace in your camera.

This is a CCD sensor problem and should be replaced. Try to have it done free of charge by Sony even though your camera is an old model because CCD sensor should last 10 years +.
