Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

I could not get my floppy disk out and the paper sticky that describes what is on the disk got stuck. I had to get it out with a tweezer. The spring load would not push it out. NOW, I cannot put my floppy disk back in. It stops at a certain point and I do not want to push it. I have a Sony MVCFD81 and I love this camera. I need it fixed. How much and how long does it take? Thank you, Sharon A. Miller

On my Sony MVC-FD88 I had listed this as a similar problem on FixYa.com\015\012and then explored it further. I'm very technical so I replaced the\015\012internal floppy disk drive myself, so wanted to post my findings here.

\015\012I bought the internal floppy disk drive (very hard part to find) at partstore.com

\015\012It is not an easy procedure if you have not done this type of work\015\012before. There are several online places that will replace the floppy\015\012disk drive for you.

They are very delicate, any jar to the camera can\015\012harm them, as well as, labels on disks loose or a misaligned disk cover\015\012on the floppy disk. Mine now works perfectly. Generally, once they\015\012jam, getting the floppy disk out often destroys the floppy disk drive\015\012heads inside the camera. These are great cameras. I am always\015\012impressed by mine, it is a definite keeper. From what I've found the\015\012electronics of the camera are quite reliable and I only need to take a\015\012couple of pictures at a time, so a memory chip type camera is of no\015\012real value to me.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H2 turns on sporadically. Once on it works fine. Shut it off and try to turn back on and it doesn't. Repeated pushing of the power button maybe 30-40 times and it turns back on again. Once you get it on it Works fine. Turn off and when you want to turn it on again must push power button over and over to get it on again. This happens with brand new batteries and with rechargeable batteries that have been fully charged. Any assistance would be appreciated. Doug Clark

I have a digital Sony Mavica FD-95, when I insert a floppy disk into the drive, it reads as "disk protected" when the disk is not protected. Also, when I insert the adapter for the memory stick [64 meg] it reads "disk error" [flashing: C:13:01]. [Disk Protect] In both instances, I double confirmed that the media was NOT write/copy protected & I have replaced the batteries in the MSAC-FD2M memory stick/floppy adapter. Can this be fixed?

I read your solution to the Sony DSC-T1 black screen problem, but the link you provided did not work, even when I copied it into my browser.

I've barely used this camera. After taking a picture last night, I thought I'd change the settings. When I pushed the menu button, it froze up and the screen went blank. It has remained this way.

I have just purchased a KWorld DVD Maker 2 and set it up as per instructions and the DVD Maker itself says by pushing the button it will start flashing blue, well this does not happen and it gets very hot. I have the bigger usb end plugged into computor while my Sony video camera has only two female outlets 1 yellow the other black so I insert two cables with male adaptors to install. Where do the other leads go to or are they for other appliance uses. Please advise as I am getting frustrated


The 1 yellow and 1 black female outlets are likely for RCA Phono jacks and older VCR connections. DVD Maker sounds like you would use a camera that has USB cable to the computer and the computer writes DVDs using the Kworld DVD Maker 2.\015\012 ... Digital Cameras
