Question about Sony Handycam DCR-PC105E Mini DV Digital Camcorder

Will Not take Photo's

Camcorder working OK. But when I try to take a photo; the green dot appears on the screen and the camera focus's, but does not take the photo. I can access the memory card and delete photo's but it will not add new ones. I have tried a different memory stick, taking photo's with the A/C plugged in and formatting the stick with no luck.

    I charged the camcorder for 24 hours to re-charge the internal battery, and i this resolved the problem.

    I have the same problem described by Xero but have not managed to solve it even after more than 24 hours of charging. I would further add that I am able to record video clips in mpeg format on the memory stick but nothing doing when I try to take a photo. Any ideas for fixing the camera wuld be highly appreciated.

Why are my photos out of focus??


Check your settings - try taking sots with the different focus settings and compare. If all photos show some identical signs, you need a fix on your camera. If, for one photo taken with the auto focus settings, look different, you need more practice with your camera.

Camera will not focus and on AF it flashes green dot with a 9


the flashing green dot is caused by the camera not able to focus, and is typically from the following:

1. not enough light - if you are in Aperture Priority, try increasing the ISO
2. low contrast subjects - the camera can't find a good point to focus on
3. overlapping near/far objects - again, the camera can't decide which one to focus on
4. Repetitive patterns

You can go into manual focus, or, auto focus on something the same distance away and lock the focus and shoot.

G1 phone camera doesnt take pictures


As the others said, there are the two settings. I had a similar problem, then realized how it worked. You need to not press very hard while it focuses first. Then you can press all the way down, if you hold it all the way down, it doesn't recognize that you've already passed the first "Focus" pressure point and gone into the second "Capture" pressure point.

Suddenly it doesn`t focus


try resetting your camera. In record mode press menu. go to setup tab go up to reset press right arrow highlight reset press set. If that doesn't work Call the repairs center at 800-706-2534 and then keep choosing option 1. Tell them what's going on and that you would like to send it in for repairs. If they ask just lie and tell them you already talked to tech support. LOL
