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'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

No image Hi, My DSC-F717 has been sitting unused for 2 months, but in safe place. When I turn it on now, everything works perfectly except there is no image in either the view finder or the display screen, almost as if the lense cap was on! All of the settings are sown in on the display but other than that the screen is black. When I try to film something it's the same, I get sound but but just a black image. I live in the Caribbean and don't have access to a Sony repair place so hope you can he

Lcd display not working on nikon d40. When we turn on the camera, and take off the lens cap, the lcd display is black. we can use the viewfinder to take a photo. We can view the image after taking the photo, but can not see the image prior to taking the picture.

Hi, We bought a Sony DCR HC62 Handycam last month. Twice now while recording a video, horizontal gray bars appear on the display screen breaking the image up. Like looking at the image through venetian blinds. They stay on the screen for a few seconds and then disappear. We bought a head cleaner and ran it through last night and are continuing to use the camera to see if it occurs again. We are using 60 minute Maxell tapes.

My Sony Cybershot DSC V1 viewfinder screen very briefly shows the taken image and this then quickly fades to a foggy whiteout which sometimes shows the ghost of the image taken. The same image shows when the memory stick is downloaded. Same with all my memory sticks.
It is possible that the image sensor which is the CCD- charge coupled device is faulty and will need a replacement. However it is important that the OE part is required and so is best to take consensus with Sony spares and service. ... Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-V1 Digital Camera

Kodak M763. Display works all right if I review photos already taken, but there is usually no display when I try to take a picture. It's black. It may be that, if the battery is fully charged, I may see a display in a sepia tone or a bluish overcast. The information on the screen is bright, it's the viewfinder image that can't be seen.

On my camera (Sony Cybershot DSC-W330), I clicked "Play" to view the images. It said "file error," although I had been viewing the pictures ALL DAY and they suddenly disappeared. Now it says "no images" and they cannot be found anywhere. When I plug it into my computer, some show up in jpg format, but can't display a preview or the image or anything! Are they gone for good?? :(

I have a four year old Canon S1-IS that worked fine as recently as two weeks ago. I tried to take a photo with it last Friday and all I can see in wither the viewfinder or the display is a very garbled screen with horizontal stripes, that seem to change colors.
