Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-S40 Digital Camera

10 Answers

White Screen + Stuck Lens

Problem #1. The screen turns all white, for any reason. I can use it for a couple of days and it works fine, then, suddenly I can't see the screen. I sent the camera back for repair, Sony fixed it but 2 months later the same problem re-appears. Problem #2. The lens got stuck inside the camera, when turned off the lens little door stays open. Problem #3. My camera doesn't want to turn on, it sounds like it's going to for about 3 seconds but then it turns off, I still see white screen. Sony Guarantee already expired and I don't know what to do, I don't want to pay $110 dls.

One of you guys said this

"1. Hold camera firmly in left hand
2. Smartly rap front of camera with knuckles of right hand on the "Cyber-shot" logo."

I really thought you were joking, but still went ahead and did it just for the heck of it as I was so frustrated with the camera. To my surprise, this worked like magic. Hats of to who ever said this. You are a genius and Sony should probably beg you and hire you.. Who ever this is... Thank you so much.

1. Hold camera firmly in left hand 2. Smartly rap front of camera with knuckles of right hand on the "Cyber-shot" logo. It worked, now the LCD is working again for free. don't need to pay Sony $111.00 for repair service.

The cable connecting the lcd with the board can be coroded-needs cleaning. The lens problem can be solved by replacing the micro switches in front of the lens unit. If you need more help, please advice. Arpi

I dont mean to be rude, but it would help alot for those who has knowledge to know what kind of phone your using. Now i know this doesnt help your problem but its a step further if we know what kind of phone we are talking about.

Cable on TV suddenly went to black & white (and a bit fuzzy)(some channels show faint colour). Was fine, nothing was changed, one day was suddenly B&W. TV screen is not the problem, all other cable...


Was playing around with the TV's menu and changed the Tuning Band from "HRC cable" to "IRC cable". Suddenly I have colour again. No one had adjusted any of the controls, so still not sure why one day it was fine and the next day it had gone to black and white, but changing the Tuning Band fixed the colour problem for me.

Hey,
This is a problem that occurs often in all of the Sony Cybershot cameras. To fix this problem, hit the "Sony" logo on the front of the camera with one of your knuckles. I know it sounds abusive, but it works everytime! and with every Sony camera:)
Best of luck,

White Screen


Safe mode it works forever?

Try reseting your video settings.
Right click the desktop
Go to properties
Click the settings tab
Choose your optimum resolution 600x800 and 1024x768 are most common. Unless you have a wide screen.

If that doesnt help try disabling programs that start with the pc. However unlikley it may see, if everything works fine in safe mode, it must be related.

Start > Run > Msconfig
Click the start up tab.
Click "Disable All"
reboot

How does it work now?
