Having problems with your Sony Alpha DSLR-A100 Digital Camera ?

Sony Alpha A100 shakes when I turn it on

\015 Hi I just purchaseda Sony Alpha A100 from Craigslist a few days a go. The camera works fine. Just today, i havea friend in the office that has the very same camera and noted that the camera should not vibrate or shake when it turns on. How do I fix this? Is this something I should be worried about?\015

Answers :

It's actually, believe it or not, an anti-dust mechanism. All Sony Alpha A100's (mine included) do a little shake/vibration to help keep the dust off. It's nothing to worry about unless it lasts for more than a second.
The camera should not vibrate at the start just at the end (power off)
Vibrate at the start means false inition of antishake.

My Sony DSC-W30 has a problem. When turned on the screen picture rarely can be seen. It is either completely dark and a picture taken will also turn out dark and unseen. Sometimes the screen will turn on and off many times and then turn dark. Sometimes I can smack it on my hand and it will go black or come back on. The anti-shake button sometimes allows it to come back on. I do not have any screen messages and all the other features seem to work but in a dark unusable screen.


Sounds like a loose LCD connector. It does not sound like a image sensory problem to me. You will have to disassemble it , remove the connector cable then replug it back into the panel and that should do the trick. However I suggest that you take th ... Digital Cameras

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. The diopter did not make a difference in the viewfinder's


Viewfinders are very sensitive and delicate. The best and safest way to clean the viewfinder screen is not to touch\015\012it and not to use solvents on it. No matter how dirty it is it won't\015\012affect the image. If it gets dusty, use a blower to ... Digital Cameras
