Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T9 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Motor runs continuously

A motor runs continuously when the camera is switched on. The camera still takes pictures, but the quality is variable. I cannot tell if it is the zoom motor or another motor making the noise.

The magnification motor cannot find its home position at this time, causing a erratic operation, soon enough the motor will wear up and would cause you more damaged. you need to take this to repair center and either clean the sensor or replace the home positioning sensor

I do not know what the yellow camera on my Fujifilm XP50 means? Also, what does the !AE mean?

Its an icon to inform u that your condition setting should be changed for better quality picture. It will still let you take the picture but in some cases it interferes but just change your setting( flash off/on or auto, night, landscape,indoors,ect...) I ignore it honestly but it's a guide for better pictures nothing serious. To take it off.i couldn't tell u. I think cameras automatically show that when u have a good quality picture camerA unlike the cheepies. But Now you know!

Hello from Bulgaria :) can you tell me the settings for optimal quality of taking pic with samsung S730? because sometimes when i change it to manual or ASR the picture quality is awfulll... thanks

That depends on the subject matter and, more importantly, on what YOU want the picture to say. Usually for landscapes you'd want a deep depth of field while for portraits you'd want a narrow depth of field. You wouldn't want a picture taken outdoors on a sunny day to have the same mood as a picture taken at night. That's why there are so many settings. If there was such a thing as optimal settings for all pictures, we might not need anything other than on/off switch and the shutter release button.

Again, YOU must decide the settings (even if it's only to hand control over to the camera in one of the automatic modes). You and I could be taking pictures of the same thing at the same time using the same type camera, and there's a good chance we'd be using different settings. It's not that one set of settings is better or worse than the other.

Is it bad for a camera to continually change settings

Changing settings won't affect how well the camera works, i.e., the quality of the picture. The only thing that *might* happen is the mechanical pieces will eventually give out. Buttons, motor driving the lens and auto-focus, flash pop-up will eventually give out...but they are (usually) robust. Think about the button presses on a video game controller. Don't do something like toggle a switch back and forth dozens of times before each picture - this is unnecessary usage. Changing the setting for each picture - no problem.

My freud ft 3000 will not run.i have power to the switch

First thing to check is that your brushes are touching. Remove the 4 screws holding the top cover on. You will see the two brush holders and brushes. Use a multimeter of the ohm setting to check the continuity through the brushes. Do not press on the brushes hard, just make contact with both brushes and the probes. If you get continuity it is not the brushes, it there is no continuity then inspect further to see if the brushes are worn. At this point if it is not the brushes the variable speed switch is more than likely the culprit. If you are getting power to the on/off switch and through the on/offswitch, check to see if you are getting power through the variable speed switch. To do this do not plug the cord in. Use the ohm meter to check continuity of the black wire to the wire coming out of the variable switch with the variable switch at the highest setting. As you turn the dial down the resistance will increase but should not be disrupted. If there is not continuity at all it is the variable speed switch. You can confirm this by bypassing all switches and connecting the power directly to the motor with alligator clips. Make sure you have the router in a vice when you do this though. It has a lot of torque and will jump off the bench if not secured. If you do not feel comfortable doing this please do not attempt it because you could seriously injure yourself or someone else. Any questions please post back and I will check back on this inquiry.

My Canon Powershot SD950 IS only allows me to take 8 photos at a time before it tells me that the memory is full. It is the original memory card it came with (32 mb) and it has done this since I first got...

There is nothing wrong with your camera. When you set the resolution to Large and compression to Fine, each picture needs about 3M space. So for a 32M SD card, you can take about 9 pictures. To take more pictures, you can set to low resolution and high compression which means that you’ll lost the picture quality; or use bigger size memory card. I would like to suggest you to buy a bigger card to keep the picture quality.
A chat on page 219 of user manual shows the estimated capacities of memory cards.

I take pictures for a very small school. One of the issues that I continue to run into is while taking pictures in the gym (1932) the lighting makes the pictures turn out mostly yellow. Is there a way

By using the manual white balance adjustment on most cameras, you can "filter" out the yellowish color cast you are experiencing. The adjustment is best made while standing in the area in which you will be shooting. You will see the shift in color on the camera's LCD as you switch from setting to setting. On most cameras adjustment to white balance requires you to take the camera off it's fully automatic setting.

Bad photo quality

The Konika Minolta 7D is a DSLR. With the DSLR you have a much bigger sensor, and can use much bigger lenses (with larger apertures - lower f-stop numbers) to gather light to the sensor. This allows the DSLR to take much better photos in low light. You will never get the same quality out of a small pocket camera like the Nikon S60. Hand-held non-flash photos in low light with this camera are going to have the flaws you have noticed - especially in the darker areas of the image. This is digital noise caused by amplifying the signal from the sensor as the camera processes the image with the high ISO setting.

You said you are sure that you are using the highest picture quality settings. The next thing is to change the ISO - this camera's "high ISO" does not produce images with good quality. The camera automatically uses a high ISO setting in low light, you need to tell it to not use high ISO by setting a lower ISO value. When shooting with a low ISO setting in low light, you need to use a tripod, and your subject can not be moving.

If you need to take hand-held photos, or your subject is moving, then you need to use flash with this camera, or else use your 7D.

Internal memory full appears when turning on the camera. But, yet, it only shows the 5 pictures I took today.

The better quality you have your pictures at the more memory it will use. Check the settings on the camera and lower the quality to normal, before you take a picture it will tell you how many pictures you can take on the top right hand side of the screen, keep adjusting the quality until you are satisfied with the amount of pictures that you can take. In general the internal memories on cameras are not that great, I would suggest you buy a memory card.

Blurred Images/ Photos

Check out the Fiji Tech support team. Depending on the age of the camera there may be a swap out option. Independent repair will not be an economic prop.
