Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-F717 Digital Camera

2 Answers

Not able to to take a photo

When I point the lens at any object, including a light - the picture on the display is dark with lines. My worry is that I will be told that the price to fix it will be more that the cost to by a new camera. Has anyone experience this before. My worry when I bought the camera was that with the moveable lens, that something could come loose (wire etc..) I wonder if this is the case here.

I found an Authorized Sony Service center and the GREAT news is that this is a KNOWN problem and Sony will service it for me. Apparantly this is until 2008. Of course when I took it to the store - the camera decided to work again! So i have to wait for the problem to occur again and bring it back?

Hello Mork, Do not worry. The problem can be the CCD unit. Please contact the nearest Authorized Sony Service for price estimate. Best regards, Arpad

A line has appeared when i look through my lens and it appears on all of my pictures. Worried the camera has seen it's last day, i think my warranty is up too. Anyone have a similar problem?

What you're likely seeing it a foreign object that is on or has entered the camera lens.

If it is a dark curved line (as opposed to bright line) it may be a hair. It may appear out of focus or in focus depending on where it is and the distance to the focus point of the picture when taken.

This problem can be solved easily by a professional cleaning if you're unable to locate the source & remove it yourself (without the need to disassemble the camera). Cleanings are much less costly than repairs generally, but you should consult a reputable local camera shop and get an estimate for the work - or contact Canon technical support.

When I open the lens, the screen is dark and displays no image of the object I want to photograph

If you see the display information on modes - but no images of the object and the photos are black - for two reasons:
1. Defective matrix camera (CCD). Require replacement of the matrix, setting the camera after replacement - the setting is only able to engineer Sony service center.
2. Does not work in the camera shutter - to replace or repair the unit shutter in the lens. Repair is possible at any repair workshop of digital technology.
3. If you do not see any picture on the screen - the display is damaged camera - needed to be replaced.

The exact cause and complete diagnosis is possible only after the removal of the camera.

Images are blurry, fuzzy

Good day,

I have heard a lot of complaints about people taking Blurry Photos.

There are a few possibilities for it and a few easy fixes.

The first possibility I would identify is a dirty lens. To fix this simply take a clean microfiber cloth and gently clean the lens until there are no smudges visible.

The other possibility I would identify is that the pictures are out of focus.
This problem can be caused by a dirty lens or because the object or person was not focused on. To ensure focus on your photos, line up your shot and wait for the camera to focus by pressing the shutter button half way down. When focused press the shutter button in all the way and hold the camera still until the photo appears on the screen. By doing this you will eliminate any motion that might mess up your shot.

Please let me know if these tips work for you!

Regards

All of the pictures are grainy and very dark- not usable camera at all- less than 2 years old I have re formatted the SD card, changed the batteries, and reset the camera to default settings

To fix your issue with the Canon Powershot SX110 IS Digital Camera, try cleaning the lens. A huge issue with malfunctioning pictures can be as objective as a dirty lens. If that doesn't solve the issue, try to make sure that your flash is working to its full power. If you are taking a picture in a low-light area and the flash isn't giving off a strong enough light, this will cause grainy/noisy dark photos. Lastly, try playing around the with settings on the configuration screen. Sometimes digital cameras can malfunction, even after reformatting, and will apply alternate settings from what you originally had set.

Hope this helps!

I have a Sony DSC T-90 12.1 megapixel. I often

The vertical line can be caused by a very bright object in the image like a lamp or a silver surface reflecting the flash.
The spots are caused by the flash being SO close to the lens. Any object that can reflect the flash reflects it right back at the camera. This is an image problem with most point and shoot digitals. Watch for reflective surfaces and stand at an angle to them. Turn on more lights in the room before using flash. Stand at a slight angle to the image or person you are photographing - don't shoot straight on. (I kneel down and shoot up - makes a good shot too.)
If you are shooting toward the sun, shield the lens from direct sunlight with your hand (Keep your hand out of the picture!)

My fisheye pictures don't come out perfectly circular anymore... on the bottom right corner of all the pictures is a black part that looks like a shadow. what is wrong with it?

Sounds like you have a light leak. At the film plane of your camera the image from the lens is upside down and laterally reversed, so the light leak is at the top left of the film when it's in the camera. If you're shooting for prints look at the strips of negatives. If the edges of the film are affected as well as the picture area then the light leak is at the back. If it's just the picture area then the light leak is through the film gate. If you hold a strip of negatives in the camera with the emulsion towards the lens and the picture upside down and then line up the picture with the film gate this should point to the problem area. All this assumes that your finger wasn't in front of the lens... :-)
