I can only turn on my Cybershot DSC-N2 while the camera is in playback mode. I can look at the pictures and videos and change settings with no problem.. but when I try to switch to camera or video record mode the camera turns off by itself. Sometimes the lens will come out and then the camera powers down with the lens stuck out. Other times it just shuts off before the lens even has a chance to come out. The camera has never been dropped or damaged.

I have a canon xh g1 camcorder with a timecode jackpack on it. i want to shoot music videos, and i want my camcorders free run timecode to sync to the timecode of a chosen song that has timecode on it with the audio. i want to be able to put my song into a playback device such as a cd player or a dvd player, and when i push play on the song, the timecode syncs my camera so i can have the same timecodes when i capture my video in final cut.

When I use Video mode, the audio has a clicking sound that is audible in the video file. I believe it is the sound of the auto focus. The camera did not always make this sound. I have tried to have it repaired by Sony. they said the camera is supposed to be that ay. I know that is not the case since I have sample that I made without the audio glitch before the audio glistch started. Now it always happens. Is there any solution? Can anyone repair this?


The solution here is repair the autofocus sensor inside as that is a confirm on your findings that clicking in the sound is the autofocus making audible noises in the micro phone. What you need to do as I hate to say it is bring it to a local camera ... Konica Minolta DiMAGE A200 Digital Camera
