Sony A100 - Buttons won't work

\015 None of my buttons work on my camera. Turning OFF and ON does not help. The only button that works is shutter. However, when I take a picture and the picture displays on the LCD screen, the 4 buttons on the side of the screen works. Also I cannot upload to my computer. The red light flashes as if it acknowledges that it's connected but nothing appears on the screen and it doesn't show up on my computer. Please help\015

This sounds odd, I know, but I found a solution that worked for me. I had exactly the same problem: picture taking was wonky, menu button, playback button wouldn't work. It would do this immediately upon starting up, every time.\015\012
\015\012What worked was when I adjusted the "exposure" by holding the +/- button and turning the little dial near the shutter button. It makes absolutely no sense, but somehow it suddenly started working perfectly again. And it hasn't glitched up again yet.\015\012
\015\012Hope it works for you, too.
Simular problem, camera will not take pictures in auto mode, after turning on remove and reinstall lens and it does works, till next shot off. Also after taking picture displays the picture taken, then I push scroll and can look at all pic on memory card. At the time I push "menu" and can enter and edit all camera functions. I know it is a round about way, but beats paying sony $225 flat fee to fix something wich should be a free reapir, because the camera is good, I think it is a faulty software problem only. Trying to install the latest firmware does not cure the problem.

Hi :) I have Sony f828 and the shutter button not working properly. I mean if push the button straight from the top, the shutter is not go (focus, laser is OK) but if pushing the button from top (by angel) or little from right by angle is working. I need to do this very gentile and must "fill" the button. Is it fixable? What can I do if can do myself? Where to buy parts, what I need. Thanks for any clue. Jan G. from NY


It works from an angle so the buttons internal contact is disfigured. I would purchase a new button or buy a used part camera on Ebay which are fairly inexpensive. That way you can have a donor camera to take apart and have a better feel about taking ... Digital Cameras

DSC-W200 Frozen My W200 has the lens open (extended) and will not close. Additionally, when I press the power button or the play button on the back, the LCD lights up and says Sony, but nothing else happens. I've tried connecting it to my macbook, using a fully charged battery, memory card vs no card, etc. Nothing seems to work. If I press the power button a seond time, the green power light goes off, but the LCD still says Sony. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Not too eager to send it

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

Have a Sony Alpha DSLR-A300K. Let a friend borrow it and she used USB to download the photos to her computer. Ever since she did that, the camera does not work: specifically, all the buttons don't do anything (shutter button, menu button, playback button, etc). Any ideas out there to try and and get this camera to act like its old self? Thanks! p.s. when I get my pictures off the camera, I just remove the card and insert it into my computer; I don't do the USB method she used.


Sounds like when she disconnected the USB cord, she didn't use the "safely remove hardware" function on her computer. You could try a reset from the menu if you could get into it. If not, try a manual reset...it sometimes works. Remove the card and b ... Sony Alpha DSLR-A300K w/ 18-70mm Lens Digital Camera
