Having problems with your Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H7 Digital Camera ?

When I take a picture using the flash it comes out very dark, darker that taking it without the flash. The flash goes off as usual. It it almost like the flash is causing a shadow on the picture. I have had this camera for aprox 3 years and never had any problems with it before.


Answers :

Hi,
Please initialize (reset) camera, option is available in settings menu.
If that does not fix the problem then camera needs strobe adjustment that can only be done at nearest Sony service center with Sony designed special tools.
Let me know if you have additional question.
Thanks.

I have loved this camera but everytime I take a flash picture it causes the subjects to close their eyes. I've never had this problem with other cameras. Is the flash not timed properly or is it too bright? Can you help?

I have a Nikon Coolpix L110 and the pictures have a yellow tint when taken inside. I've noticed the yellow tint varies when I point the camera to different areas in the room. I've never had an issue like this with other cameras so I'm not sure what is causing this. I read the manual and there was really nothing to address this issue. Okay this may be stupid question but; Do you think raising the flash will get rid of the yellow? Thanks Marie Steel

My camera was dropped and since then it won't take pictures using the flash. The screen keeps saying "F 2.8 1/45" while the flash is charging, but never takes a picture. The camera takes pictures fine without the flash. What does this mean?


This means the flash or flash circuitry broke due to the drop. The camera will take pictures as long as the flash is not required. Only resolution is to have the camera repaired, which unfortunately may cost more than the camera is worth. ... Samsung Digimax S630 Digital Camera

Canon 1400 IS: When I take a picture using flash of a close up object, a shadow is cast on the lower right corner of the picture. For pictures that are not taken close up with flash, or taken from further away and just zoomed in to the object, does not have this issue. Do you know what could be causing this shadow issue?


It's most likely the shadow of the lens. The flash is above and to the left of the lens, so the shadow of the lens will be to the right and below. ... Digital Cameras

I've had my Olympus FE-340 for 3 years, and I've never had any problems with it before. Now, whenever I try to zoom in, the camera takes white pictures or pictures with streaks in them. I've tried reseting the camera, changing the battery, changing the picture card, switching settings, and turning the flash on and off. Is there any way to fix the white/streaky pictures? Or, does this mean that my camera will no longer work when I try to zoom in?

Taking pictures I have loved using my camera until it stopped being able to take pictures. Whenever I try to take a picture, the red light goes on a few times but the camera never flashes, clicks, or takes the picture. I can still look at my pictures but I can't take them. What is wrong and what should I do?


This could be due to a jammed lens element preventing the camera from focusing properly. When you push the button the camera attempts to focus the image before it takes the picture.

Bright pictures I have had my Sony Cyber Shot (DSC-S650) for about 6 mo. I have tried all different settings for the flash but almost all of my pictures come out with the person very white and bright.

Blurred images My camera takes pictures fine with the flash on. However without the flash it makes a funny almost grinding noise when it takes the picture and then the picture is slightly blurred. What could be causing this and how can I fix it?


This is mainly due to the slow shutter speed selected by your CAM. in low light situations the cam chooses a slow shutter speed to expose the image adequately. Any shakes that may have caused during the shutter operation will cause the funny images. ... Olympus Stylus 760 Digital Camera

My husband dropped my sony dsc-H10 in the river for a very quick swim. We let the camera dry out and it actually works great now, except for the flash. I can turn the flash on and it will click like the flash is working during a picture but it never lights up.

PICTURE TAKING Wonder if anyone can help me? Whenever I try to take a picture on my C-350 Zoom there is a long delay, of about 3 seconds, between me pressing the button and the flash operating to take the picture. This means I can never take any action shots and am even struggling to take family snapshots. I've checked this against other cameras and they only seem to take 1 to 1.5 seconds. I've looked through the operating manual and can't seem to find any solution. Any help would be greatly

I have a great Mavica FD75 camera and the batteries will not hold a charge. When I put them on the charger the light says lit for a couple of minutes then goes out.
