Having problems with your Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-P200 Digital Camera ?

Pictures are too dark or too bright with Sony DSC-P200 Camera

\015 I've got Sony DSC-P200 Digital camera for the last almost 3 years. It was all working fine up until last two months. It has developed a fault. It very rarely takes good balanced pictures. All other pictures are either too dark or too bright. Camera is on full Auto mode. I've always been using it on Auto mode and it was working fine. I've tried resetting it by the reset button under the battery flap. No change at all. I've tried power resetting it as instructed by Sony, taking battery out and pressing power button for 30 seconds and then putting battery back in. Still no joy. Flash seems to be malfunctioning as sometimes it throws so much light and sometimes very little. Can you please help me fixing it as it is very annoying at the moment.\015\012Thanks.\015

My Sony DSC-T200 also vibrates periodically. I've never dropped it, and 90% of the time, its functioning just fine, but once in a while (usually for the duration of a whole event that I'd like to take pictures at), it vibrates very much like a cell phone with ringer set on vibrate.

Should I avoid Sony DSC cameras i

Nikon D40 pictures taken but too dark even in AUTO mode with flash on a bright day. also, some days ago I had the Shutter release error message while taking some photos.
