Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-S40 Digital Camera
Hi, I have a Sony digital camera says "cyber-shot U" in the front, so I guess that's the model, then 2.0 megapixels in the upper part and I have been using it for a long time with no problem at all. recently I may have disconnected it from the USB cable off the computer without first doing the "safely remove hardware step" and even though I used it afterwards I haven't been able to use it anymore. When I open it it does not turn on, I tried different batteries but without results. I try connecting it again to the computer (several ones) and they don't detect the device while normally they did, the power button blinks, like it did before but before after blinking a couple times it turned on and then the computer detected it and now it's not happening, I noticed that a red light blinks too, I hadn't notice this before and I think that's trying to say there's some kind of problem, when I remove the memory stick (512 mb) the red light stops blinking. There is a little reset button on the bottom of the camera and I tried clicking it for 10 sec. or more but nothing happened, except the power button goes off while I'm pushing the reset button and then when I let go it starts blinking again as does the little screen. I have some important pictures in my memory stick and I wouldn't want to loose them, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE help me... I would really really appreciate it. Hope to hear from you soon. Thanks
Hi there, please purchase (or borrow) the new memory stick in order to check whether the old one is OK. When you try the new memory stick, please give me the feedback info. Best regards, Arpi
