Having problems with your Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-S500 Digital Camera ?

Describe your Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-S500

\015 I gave this digital camera to my son a year ago and all was fine until\015\012a few days after warranty expired, it no longer would focus. The LCD\015\012screen only shows a darker, grainy picture and then won't focus to take\015\012the shot.\015\012Is this a sensor problem?....Sony said it would cost more than the camera to have them look at it and repair!\015

Answers :

The fault may be with the apature in the lens, or the CCD sensor sensitivity. Go through all the menus first just in case something was changed.
\015\012
\015\012Maybe the camera is in the manual mode, and the apature is turned all the way down???
\015\012
\015\012If all else fails, the camera may be exensive to service.
