Cybershot not auto focusing - Digital Cameras


Answers :

I've had the same problem with cyber-shot dsc-s500. it had problems focusing. even more in the dark. what's more is that pictures were low on colors. an example of this is when i took the flashram to the drug store to print out the shot. they looked like 16 color gif's! i sent the unit back to sony (under warranty at the time) and i sent the pics along with it and all i got was "there's nothing wrong with this camera, everythings fine". i even explained how to duplicate the problem and kept getting the same answer. :( sony was no help at all. i solved the problem myself and purchased a canon as1000is. beautiful and emaculant shots!! i've been a sony fan for many many years and never got such crappy help. a mistake i'm sure not to make again.
Will you mention model number of your cybershot?

I have a Canon Digital Rebel XT camera using a 75-300mm telephoto lens. My problem with the lens is that at times it is hard to adjust the focus either manually or automatically with the camera. I hear something rattling around inside the lens and at times the lens will not auto-focus and I have to remove the lens and manually twist it to get it back to some normal operation. Is this fixable or do I need a new lens?


It sounds like the lens has been dropped or knocked and is misaligned in the guides.Repair against new lewns is a difficult one as prices vary. I would perhaps consider replacing it with a used one. Before you do borrow a similar lens from some ... Canon Digital Cameras

My Canon EOS Rebel XS digital camera has suddenly stopped taking pictures. It will not focus even though it is on the auto focus setting. The first set of numbers are flashing and there is a flashing dot behind the ISO 800. It was working fine when I used it one time and then the next time it wouldn't. I can view pictures, but cannot take them on any setting except A-DEP and it's not focused even then. Please Help!
