SONY DSC-N2 Cyber Shot 10.1

Greetings and happy New Year!
I had an unfortunate accident - I've dropped my SONY Cyber-shot10.1
digital camera and now camera is not working,in particular:
1. The objective won't retract,although it's trying a few times.
2. The memory stick can not be read showing an error:"Format error". And
on this memory stick I have a lot of information related to New Year
celebration,so it's very important for me.

I would really appreciate if you help me somehow either to repair camera
and suggest me how to retrieve the data from stick,or can you just send me
this vital part-objective module?

Best regards.
Vlad Lebedev.

Sony TX1 camera shutter not working

unfortunately because this camera is all internal there is no home fix. in fact you have to send it back to sony. Also if it was impact damage they most likely will not cover it with any warranty.. I would play stupid and see how far you can get but sony will have to be where you send it.

Sony cybershot camera was accidently washed in the washer. it will not turn on.

Unfortunately its not made for washing.
It is unlikely it will work again but the folowing has helped on cell phones.
Dry it in a not to warm place (not over 50 degreed centigrade) with good ventilation. Wait for 5 days atleast. If you can take the battery out and the memory card before.

How to reset sony cyber shot dsc-p200


On page 14 of the user manual for this camera (click here for manual), it shows that there is a small reset button hidden under the battery compartment door.
On page 74 of the user manual, it states:

"Press the RESET button using a pointed object, then turn on the power (reset).

All the settings including date and time are cleared."

This should reset your camera. If you have any additional question, please reply back and I'll be happy to assist.

Thank you for using FixYa and Happy New Year

The lense is stuck inside of my sony cyber shot camera what to do

Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ... Unfortunately, many cameras that fall prey to this can only be corrected by professional repair. But, here are some things that you can do that may correct it. They only seem to work for less than 40% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try.

Can the sony cyber-shot dsc-t100 be reparied after it has been dropped into water?

I would not recommend to get repaired that camera which was dropped in water. It will need main board and lens assembly replacement that would cost almost new camera price.
New camera purchase is better.

My sony dsc-s40 has only a blank white screen does not work properly

Happy New Year!
My Mom had this same camera and had -what sounds like- the same problem. I found that the connection to the screen was loose. Take apart the camera- you need a tiny philips. If I remember there are only three screws you need to get to. One near the battery compartment. one near the tripod mount (bottom) and one just inside the memory stick slot.

Sony cyber-shot

Hey kylapaige,
Most manufacturers’ warranties on digital cameras cover the camera for 1 year, and all the manufacturer usually requires is proof of purchase. If you have lost your receipt most retailers can provide you with a copy of it. This being said I will say that most manufacturers’ warranties do not cover damage caused by and accident. I have included a link to the manufacturer where you can view the manufacturers warranty terms and conditions, and there is a PDF download of your camera manual in case you need it. I hope this helps!

Go Ahead. Use Us.
