    A friend of mine dropped my camera and it sounds exactly like your problem, little lines and looks fuzzy!! Did you manage to get your fixed? I thought I would probably have to buy a new camera, knowing my luck. I have found that if you tap the camera before you take a photo it seems to work properly, not too clever I know.

    Hi, I had this problem when my friend dropped my camera, I took it to a shop and it was gonna cost about £85 to fix it, its the shutter... not really worth it for me so I had to buy a new one.

Mine did the same thing and after reading the best answer i decided to drop the camera again and try to unstick the shutter so i just turned my camera on and dropped it about 4 ft on to the floor and it worked just fine also if you look at the lens on the camera you can tell if the shutter is stuck because it should be a circle shape.  This really did work for me even though it sounds crazy

What you describe is the symptom of a stuck shutter. The shutter is inside the lens and must close in order for the image sensor to properly record the image. Yours is stuck open, and that is why you see the lines across your images. When a stuck shutter results from an impact it usually requires full disassembly and manual re-setting of the delicate shutter blades. This problem would require professional repair. Unfortunately damage from an impact is not covered by your factory warranty. You can find good repair services on the internet who can service your camera. David Millier Advance Camera Repair

Which is better between hardwood floor or laminate floor??

I think.. hardwood is much better than laminate wood flooring, but each type of flooring has its advantages and disadvantages. Hopefully this article can help you to choose the floor you want.

Blurry pictures

You did not say which lens or lenses you are using, but most auto-focus lenses have a switch for selecting manual or auto-focus. First, check your camera's menu settings to make sure auto-focus is enabled and then your lens to make sure you did not accidently leave it in the manual focus position? If it is in the auto-focus position and still not taking sharp pictures, switch it to manual and see if you can get it to focus correctly. It is also possible that your auto-focus alignment is out because your camera was bumped, jolted or dropped. If realignment is necessary, you can send the camera and lens to Nikon for repair or find a knowledgeable camera repairman.

Hi Pavel

Sorry but your camera needs to have the lens replaced. The drop onto the floor damaged it and the only way to fix it is to replace it. Wish I had better news for you.

My camera was dropped on the floor, now everytime I turn it on it says lens error on the screen and the lens itself will not detract when turned off.

Focusing mechanism might be either broken and jumped out of its place
1) Take a screwdriver and open it yourself (it's not that complicated, as soon as you don't lose any parts; just try to remember where every part lies in).
2) When after opening the case you still don't understand how the focusing mechanism functions try to place battery inside, switch it on and then you'll see what exactly is blocking the focuser from moving back and forth.
3) Either place the focusing mechanism back correctly or if something is broken that you can fix with a SuperGlue - do it.
P.S. I once had the same problem after dropping my photo camera (Canon PowerShot G7), but the focusing mechanism was broken so had to go the mechanic to replace it. Mechanic normally wouldn't object that you have already disassembled the camera - less work for him.

Don't start taking your camera apart just yet. The first thing I would investigate is the memory card. Try the camera without the card in it, or with a different card. Try formatting the card (after getting all your pictures off- they will be deleted).

Wont turn on

It seems as though you broke the camera through the accidental dropping on the floor. I can imagine that your parents may be upset, as it seems you and they are are responsible for the damage. You just need to ask the owner what they would like you to do to make things right. Digital cameras are not expensive these days, and you should be able to get a replacement for less than $150 or so. You should get them another Sony, and pick one with a megapixel rating that is at least as high as the one you broke.

If you are lucky, they may say that it was old anyway, and that they were going to buy another soon. (And not ask you to replace it.)

Good luck!
