Having problems with your Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-P8 Digital Camera ?

Cybershot DSC-P8/P10/P12 problem

\015 I recently plugged my camera into a converter while traveling in Europe. It took the charge (converter was marked 240 down to 110). When I tried to use it, the memory stick symbol began to flash. I changed batteries and it stopped. When I returned home and tried to download my pictures to my computer, my computer will no longer recognize the camera and the memory stick image is flashing all the time. I tried the reset button but it still doesn't work. Is my camera toast? I can see the images when I turn the camera on but I can no longer download them to my computer.\015\012Thank you\015

Hi,
\015\012 If the photos are showing on the camera, this means the problem could be part with camera and the part with the computer. To pinpoint the point of failure . Try plugging the camera into a different computer if you have access to another system.
\015\012 The second option to recover all your pictures , is you can buy a USB flash card reader, You need to remove the memory stick from the camera and put the same in the USB reader and plug the same into your computer, to trassfer the pictures.
\015\012 The other thing as you wrote, ie after the camera reset its doing the same , the problem is more likely with the camera

Try using the memory card on a card reader and connect it to your computer, if the card is fine as you can view your pictures, you should be able to move the pictures into your computer.

I have a Sony Cybershot DSC-P73 that I have had for many years now. I have never had any problems with the camera till now. It has never been dropped or anything, but the camera will not zoom in or out at all. I have researched this problem but have not had any luck finding a solution. Any suggestions?


It's possible with how old it is the zoom motor has worn out, I've seen that before with the older Sony digital cameras. It's possible for it to be repaired but it's more cost effective to get a new camera from my experience. Hope this helps. ... Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-P73 Digital Camera

I have a SONY Cybershot DSC W150. When I turn it on the lens goes kut and comes back in several times, then I get the error message "Turn the Power Off and On Again", but doing that does not change anything.
