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

Is my Camera broken?????

\015 Well, I have a Sony Cyber-Shot with 6.0 mega pixels, I don't know if that info matters, but anyways, I can't seem to take pictures. Actually I can still take pictures, but the image doesn't come in and then it's not good colors. Like the colors that appear are sometimes red-ish white or blue-ish white with like a black line that also happens to appear. PLEASE CAN SOMEONE HELP?!?!?!?!\015

Answers :

Try a transfer to a computer or whatever you usually do with the media to determine if the photos themselves are affected or if it is just the camera display. If the photos look ok then we will know that it is the display and you could just live with it. I know of no way to repair the display cheaper than replacing the camera in most cases. If the photos are off in color it may be the settings in tha camera. Try to return to default settings (usually an option) or fiddling with them (usually set at zero or the center of a slide)

Our daughters HP photosmart M637 camera's display looks like broken glass. She says she did not drop the camera but was scroling through her photos and all of a sudden the display window went blank and looked like broken glass.


As you suspect, this simply does not happen unless the LCD panel has had a physical impact. The LCD units are stress tested when manufactured and the odd ones which crack "all of a sudden" would do so within a few months of manufacture and then get r ... HP Photosmart M637 digital camera (L2455A)

Broken MIrror? well your sub-mirror is broken inside of the camera, i had the same problem, it just happens by itself after extended use of the camera, and it is not a means for recall by canon so you have to deal with it yourself.  this website can fix it for $130 and they will replace it with a metal piece so it doesn't happen again(original piece is weak plastic) I just read the above solution.  It looks like I may have the same problem - I have easily taken 50,000 pictures with my Canon Rebe

The screen on my samsung LT210 dual view camera must be broken. The front view is fine and the camera still works but the larger screen to view normal pictures has been damaged and I cannot see the picture that I am taking. Can it be fixed or should I buy a new one. There are no camera repair shops where I live. I bought the camera from Best Buy and they told me that I either dropped the camera or smashed the screen somehow. Anyway, I need a camera and wanted to know if I should buy another


From your description you would be further ahead to buy a new camera, you stated there are no repair shops where you live, and to send it away would be expensive probably costing more than a new one. The only other option is go on ebay to price a new ... Digital Cameras

BROKEN LCD Today, I had my camera in my camera bag. Somehow, the screen got busted. I took out my camera to take a picture and the entire full screen view is cracked. The camera turned on and off just fine; it seems that only the screen was damaged. No images are shown when I attempt to look at the pictures I took and when I try to take a picture, I cannot see anything on the screen.

Camera jam Ricoh Caplio R5 - tried to switch it on to take a picture, and lens came out part way but the camera then switched off. Flat battery perhaps, so charged battery overnight and tried again with similar results. Lens still part way out, maybe some whirring noises, screen flashes but then camera switches off. Any ideas?

Memory card I had photos stored on a SanDisk 512MB memory card in a Nikon Coolpix camera that is now broken. I put the card in my HP Photosmart r707 to try to trasnfer the photos to my computer.

How can I restore the camera to its original state and retrieve my photos.
