Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-P150 Digital Camera

Error E1600 - please help!

After taking a few photos in short sucession, the screen flashed E1600 (i think, somthing like that) and when I turned the camera off the lens wouldn't shut and the zoom part (sorry, i am not technical at all!) wouldn't turn off - and is still sticking out now. I tried to turn it on and off as is said across the screen, but it hasn't worked. Any ideas?

    Thanks for that despite the bad news. I have just been on the phone to them as yes you are is going to cost £114.56 to repair it - so i am better off getting a new one! Just a quick question, do you recommend anything? I had been in love with this camera and so am sorry to lose it, is there a comparible upgrade? Also is it worth selling the dead one on ebay...are there people out there who would know how to fix this who would want to buy it?

The lens drive has failed for any one of many reasons- nothing for you to do here except to get onto Sony customer support Be warned however - the likely cost of repair will be near the price of replacing it.

    I wouldnot recommend any particular camera for the simple reason they seem to be updated/discontinued on an almost weekly basis,so that any thing I say would be based on last week reviews.
    My personal view is because of this 'last weeks' specs are still valid and a quicjk look at any site that offer redundant/surplus/discontinued stock will offer perfectly good camera for very often 1/3rd and more off list price
    As you are in the UK try for starters

Sony a200 Flash pops up then flashes as if its shorting and I am unable to take any photos.

Are you shooting in low light? Sometimes the flash will fire multiple short bursts to aid in focusing. If the camera is not in focus, then depending upon your setting it will not fire.

Hi, I have a Canon EOS Digital Rebel, and as of recently, it has been doing this thing where, on certain settings, i will go to focus the image, and when i click down all the way to take the shot, the...

Hey Lackster,
Error 5 is a problem with the flash. Long story short it thinks there is an external flash attached even though the mechanical pop-up still works. It is repairable.

Please let me know if you have any more questions.

Thank you.

I'm getting a 'built in memory full' message even though all photos have been deleted off the camera. Why? I can't take photos now and I very much need to.

Good day,

It sound like you need to format the internal memory of you camera.
Here is how to do so:

  1. Make sure all the photos that you want are already stored on your computer.
  2. Remove the SD Card.
  3. In the Setup Menu locate Format. (I think it is third to last in the menu screen if you scroll down)
  4. Select YES and follow the instructions.
  5. The format might take a few minutes.
  6. When the format is completed try and take some photos to see if the error has been fixed.

Please let me know if this information was helpful!

Kind Regards

When i view my photos on my camera they come up with 'read error'

Sounds like the card is failing - try recovering the images with a free software package - Google will find you lots - then Format or discard the card. Format in the camera - NEVER format using a computer

M8800 camera flash stopped working.

I have this same problem, when you switch the camera function on it doesnt even give you the option to turn the flash on as the option is greyed out. I think it is an error in manufacturing and something you can't fix :(

Blue screen access error when viewing or taking pics or vids

Please try to take as many pictures from memory stick as you can then format memory stick through format option in setup.
Hope this will resolve this blue access issue.
You can use another memory stick like 1GB in this camera.
