Having problems with your Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H5 Digital Camera ?

Dsc h5 horizontal (underexposed) lines

\015 Hi,\015\012\015\012A few years ago(!) you placed an aswer here:\015\012http://www.fixya.com/support/t121097-horizontal_lines_still_pics\015\012\015\012What's the relation between the horizontal lines (in poor light condition) and the overexposed outdoor pictures?\015\012\015\012You can see on the page above I dropped my camera (a stupid history) and I get the same horizontal lines since then. Now that I saw your question, I recall I got over exposed pictures for a short period of time during previous week-end. I used -1.7EV to correct the situation, and after a few shots all came back to normal... \015\012\015\012We were hiking on the mountins and my girlfriend also used the camera. She switched to "Auto" mode to alternatively take shots with "Auto" and (corrected) "P" modes... I was busy with the baby carrier, so I didn't pay much attention to the camera...\015\012\015\012Clearly something is broken, but what?\015\012\015\012I've got my screwdriver and I'm already looking to a dsc-h50 (although it has proprietary batttery and cables and (I read somewhere) it also has a 10 minutes movie limitation...)\015\012\015\012So, let the games begin. What screws to unscrew, what pieces to extract? :)\015\012\015\012Thank you,\015\012Mircea.\015

Answers :

The apparture system of the camera stucks to fully open, due to the impact if you happen to drop the camera. if you open the shutter and the diaphram assembly, and try to move the apparture blade manualy. it should move swiftly from one end to other with a ****. 1) sometime the motor moving this blade gets disallign or some fine sand or dust or sometimes even one finds something liquid sticking the movement of the blade. just opening and cleaning the mechanism solves the problem. 2) in some cases the flexible ribbon cable carrying signal to the assembly gets broken. replacement of the same solves the problem.

Horizontal lines I have a Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W80.  When I look at the screen to take a picture, everything looks fine.  Video setting works fine too.  But, when I take a picture, there are horizontal lines all the way across the whole screen on every picture on every setting except the video as I already stated.  Please let me know what this means.  Thanks for your help.

I have a Sony Cybershot DSC-S750. I recently dropped it in some water, so I came home, took the battery out and dried the camera for 2 1/2 days.
