Having problems with your Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-F707 Digital Camera ?

Hi just about to purchase a Sony DSC-F707 but they are saying the ONE PROBLEM IS THAT THE FLASH BULB HAS BURNED AND NEED TO BE REPLACED. Is this easy to do by myself. b


Answers :

No. And it could be more than the bulb burned out.
It is if you can get the part, but it's specific to a few Sony models made eight years ago and is no longer available as a new item.

The DSC-F707 is a clunky, clumsy design even by the standards of the time it was designed and the one worthwhile feature was the fast maximum aperture of f2 -2.4. There are plenty of better cameras for similar or lower money than they normally sell for and if you are set on the F707 then save yourself a lot of headaches and buy the best one that you can. Many were given as gifts to folks who quickly gave up on them due to the size and shape and left them unused in their boxes and they appear regularly on auction websites or even as occasional freebies on FreeCycle/Freegle.

AF problem Last week I took some pics that needed the flash turned off. I did that and took the pics with no problem. I turned the flash setting back to "auto" afterwards. (this may not be related to the current problem but does seem too much of a coincidence). Next time I went to use the camera, I got an AF(red dot) and a red hand on the screen. It would take one picture and then would be frozen (no zoom, no picture taking, but the screen would stay on). If I turn it back on I can then ta

My flash no longer works. When I press half-way down, the image on my screen looks as if the subject is lit up, but when I take the picture the flash does not work. Could the flash bulb be burned out? What can I do to fix this problem?


The bulb is most likely the problem, but it could be the high voltage capacitor that triggers the flash bulb, or possibly the transformer that charges the capacitor. I would bring it to a camera shop to see if the bulb replacement will do the trick. ... Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-T1 Digital Camera

My Flash stop working, do i need to replace it? The built-in flash does not stay up. I can hear the clicking sound when it wants to pop up, but it stays in place. At this point it's pretty easy to open it manually, so I noticed what it seems to be a small spring on the right hand side. I guess it is there to hold the flash and it looks like it is off it's place. Is there a picture somewhere of how it is supposed to assembled? Thanks in advance, Gene
