Having problems with your Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-S40 Digital Camera ?

I bought a Sony DSC t700 approximately 6 months

\015 I bought a Sony DSC t700 camera approximately 6 months ago, and it functioned wonderfully. The pictures came out with great quality and soon all my friends wanted my camera. But a few days back while i was taking pictures, the flash stopped turning on with the auto mode. And when i tried turning it on, i noticed that the flash on option just disappeared!! it only has one option now, that is flash off. please help me, because the pictures dont come out good anymore since there is no flash!! i also lost the instruction book. i would be thankful if someone could guide me on this.\015

Answers :

If the built-in flash does not function, then the camera may be set to Auto and will only flash when taking pictures in poorly illuminated environments.
To set the camera to the Forced flash setting so it will flash regardless of the surrounding brightness, press the UP ARROW on the control button until a lightning bolt icon appears on the LCD screen.

If the Forced flash setting is already enabled and the flash is still not working, then the issue may be due to another camera setting. Even if the Forced flash setting is enabled, the flash will still not work in the following circumstances:
When shooting MPEG movies
When set to the Twilight mode
If an external flash is connected
If in the Burst or Multi Burst mode

Please touch the MENU option on the screen of the Camera.
Then, select the REC MODE under the MENU.
Then, select NORMAL under the REC MODE.

If you're not able to select the NORMAL under the REC MODE, try Initializing the Camera.

First, please touch the HOME on the LCD screen of the Camera.
Then, select the SETTINGS in the HOME menu.
Then, select the MAIN SETTINGS under the SETTINGS.
Then, select the Initialize under the MAIN SETTINGS.

If the issue still persists after performing the troubleshooting steps provided above service of the Camera is required.

It's required to physically examine the Camera to determine the exact issue at the service center.

Sony DSC H5 runs down batteries very rapidly. Much faster than when the camera was originally purchased. A pair of new AA batteries only lasts for 12 - 24 photos. Brand new rechargeables fully charged are totally drained after sitting in the camera for a few weeks with no use. The camera is definitely OFF. This did not happen three years ago when I bought the camera, it started in the last 6 months. I can't go on like this!

Hi, We bought a Sony DCR HC62 Handycam last month. Twice now while recording a video, horizontal gray bars appear on the display screen breaking the image up. Like looking at the image through venetian blinds. They stay on the screen for a few seconds and then disappear. We bought a head cleaner and ran it through last night and are continuing to use the camera to see if it occurs again. We are using 60 minute Maxell tapes.
