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

The camera keeps vibrating by itself

\015 I got my camera few weeks ago and whenever I turn on my camera, it starts vibrating by itself. I don't know exactly what's happening, but something inside the camera starts shaking. When I shut off my camera, it stops. So when I try to take a picture, it comes out blurry since the camera is shaking. Does anyone know what the problem might be?\015

Answers :

If its vibrating i would think its something mechanical. this isnt my forte but it sounds like when you turn your camera on the lens covering opens up and for some reason the gears that open it continues to rotate. if your comfortable about tearing things apart look in that area. better yet since its new let the warranty take care of it. this is not a solution just a hunch. let me know how it works out im curious.

Camera vibration I've had the camera for over a year. Some time ago I started to notice the vibration problem, but it would stop after a few seconds. It has been gradually getting worse. This past weekend I was using it to take pictures when it started vibrating and would not stop unless I turned off the camera or put it into view mode. Right now it is working but I'm worried the same thing will happen in the future. Don't know if it is something I need to get fixed or if it is more worthwh

My camera won't stay on. It turns on and lens goes out and adjusts and then retracts in and camera turns off. I am in the process of taking it apart to figure it out but unless it is a problem of the screws needing to be tightened I don't know what to do next. Can you help me or refer me. I bought this camera used and really like it and want to keep it if I can. I have had so much trouble keeping digital cameras working. Thanks


The problem you are facing is most likely to be lens related. Perhaps it is not able to extend fully and hence retracing and turning off. The cause may be a mechanical obstruction. However before we try anything else, remove the battery hold for 1 mi ... Pentax Optio E30 Digital Camera

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. It seems to be the autofocus lense since the focus of the picture is also oscillating with the vibration. Is there a tooth on a gear broken or something? Is this camera prone to this? Should I avoid Sony DSC cameras i
