Having problems with your Sony Alpha DSLR-A100 Digital Camera ?
A viewfinder problem for my Sony A-100
\015 I had my camera repaired after a coffee spill knocked out the top board directly under the top cover. That took care of all the problems except now my view through the viewfinder is a spot instead of a rectangle. The pictures are all fully filled and look fine but I can's see the corners of my shot through the viewfinder. The repairman believes that Sony has a configuration change for this but we couldn't find anything.\015
This is probably a problem you are going to have to take up with your repairman but first, take the lens off and look in the camera but don't touch. Did the repairman forget to peel off the protective plastic? If not, kindly have him order another and replace it free of charge since he did not complete the services required on his end of the bargain (which was to get your camera back to its original state in exchange for money). Perhaps it was a once-in-a-lifetime mistake on Sony's part. Good luck!

I have a SONY Cybershot DSC W150. When I turn it on the lens goes kut and comes back in several times, then I get the error message "Turn the Power Off and On Again", but doing that does not change anything. This is one of four digicams I own (also a Nikon D90, SONY DSC F717, and a Canon) and I like the W150 for some purposes because it is compact and has a viewfinder, not just a screen. I have been unable to find a similar camera. What can I do to fix the problem? Gerry Meisels [email protected]

My Sony Alpha 200 digital camera takes lovely pictures, but as I am a beginner and don't really know much about apertures and shutter speeds and how complex they are, I'm having great difficulty in getting it to focus properly in the manual setting. All other settings are fine, but the image in my viewfinder is very blurry when I look through before taking the shot. I have altered the diopter for my eyes as I wear glasses, so that isn't the problem. Is there something I'm either doing wrong, or

I have a Sony Pro Hi8 V6000e Camcorder. I have a problem with this Camcorder. I inserted a recorded Hi8 cassette to play and view the cassette recently, but the cassette wouldn't play. I cannot even it eject it now from the Camcorder, because it is stuck. Please tell me how do I eject this cassette. Also, now the video camera is showing black screen with a vertical white line running horizontally and no exterior image/picture through the lens can be seen from the viewfinder. Please advise.

I recently purchased the D80 and had no problems, it worked great and took magnificant shots. However, the other day I turned it on and the viewfinder was now, dark and out of focus. The battery was fully charged and the diopter adjustment failed to fix the problem. I also noted that there was a square in the upper right viewfider that was clear and in focus, just like the entire viewfinder used to be. Of note, it still takes clear, sharp, in-focus shots, it's just that the view in the viewfinde

I've recently wet-cleaned my Sony A100 sensor and in the process, I attempted to clean the viewfinder pieces. The reason being that the image in the viewfinder was littered with spots, but the image was turning out perfect, so I assumed the viewfinder was dusty. I unlatched the individual pieces and cleaned them. After cleaning them, I put them back in and when I took the picture, the viewfinder was blurred, but the image taken was sharp.

Everything is all right except that there is probably a problem with the lense as the image (on the screen when I want to take a photo or film) is not right (it is pink, dark with lines on it). It is not a problem with the screen, because I can look at my photos / videos which were done before this problem happened.
