Sony will claim not to know what you're talking about, but here's the service advisory to refer to when you tell them it's supposed to be free.

They repaired mine for free after some persuasion.
I had same problem, was about to consider sending for repair, then decided to try something: mounting the lens FORCEFULLY into position a couple of times. Working perfectly since. Apparently, some of the contact points needed some, er, tough love.

\015\012Now, when I say "FORCEFULLY", I mean "with authority", not with "reckless abandon" - don't go and snap everything into pieces!

I first experienced a problem with my Canon S2Is camera when it was only taking pictures of blank images. I found a "fix" recommendation which seems to have gotten rid of the black image problem. However, now when I take pictures the images seem to have horizonal lines through them if I don't use the flash. Also, if I am taking a picture outside or in a lot of light, the image ends up being extremely light. Have any suggestions?


Think you need to do the fix more. Believe your shutter was previously stuck in the closed position. Now it sounds like it is stuck in the open position. Again keep trying the fix to loosen it up. Just to confirm, the "fix" you're talking about i ... Canon PowerShot S2 IS Digital Camera

I am not a techie and I bought two Canon HV20 cameras for a small video project we are doing in Florida after reading some sensational reviews. We took the first batch of tapes to our "producer" who call me up screaming that they tapes frozeup her Mac laptop with Final Cut Pro.
