Thx a lot guys... The "sony smack" really works... My friend dropped the cam when he was to take a pic of me and my date at a dinner... I was scared, and didn't know what to do until I came to this site...At first it disappeared, but came back after putting it off and on, the I did the hard smack on a towel, and it works well.. I have put it in and off 15 times already, seems like there's no sign of it coming back again.. The only other problem is that the zoom does not work well for very close pictures, and I love to shoot in macro... But anywyas, thanks a lot for the help...cheers.. :)
It seems to be a mechanical problem that can be fixed by placing a bit of pressure on key points. Here is the fix that I did that seems to have worked fine...
\015\012
\015\012open the battery cover
\015\012take the battery out
\015\012take the memory stick out (inside the battery case)
\015\012leave the battery cover open
\015\012carefully remove the 7 small silver screws (put them in a cup so you don't lose them!!)
\015\012slightly pry the front cover away from the camera starting at the bottom
\015\012wedge something in the side to 'pop' out the top retaining tabs towards the top
\015\012the front cover should now pop off the camra
\015\012Make small paper spacer #1:
\015\012Cut the adhesive strip off of a post it note.
\015\012Fold it over again about 5 times so that it has some thickness to it.
\015\012Approx final dimensions are 1/8in x 1/4in x 1/32in(??) thick
\015\012Stick it in the upper right corner of the black plastic lense housing.
\015\012See photos attached.
\015\012(There is a nice flat rectangle at that spot about the same dims.
\015\012This spacer should fit neatly right over that space.)
\015\012Make small paper spacer #2:
\015\012Cut the adhesive strip off of a post it note.
\015\012Fold it over again about 5 times so that it has some thickness to it.
\015\012Approx final dimensions are 1/4in x 1/4in x 1/32in(??) thick
\015\012Stick it in the bottom left corner of the black plastic lense housing.
\015\012See photos attached.
\015\012(There is a nice flat rectangle at that spot, but you want the spacer
\015\012to be a bit bigger so that it covers the vertical line in the plastic.)
\015\01267a65a3.jpg\015\012
\015\012Put the front cover back on the camera.
\015\012Make sure it is mechanically secure, but don't install the screws yet.
\015\012Put in the battery and memory stick.
\015\012Try it. You may have to play with the spacer thickness to get it to work.
\015\012Once it is working well again, then put the screws permanently back in.

I have a Sony DSC-S950 Cyber-shot. I opened some pictures in the computer using PhotoShop to view and rotate pictures.

Zoom error I turned my F470 camera on and received a "zoom error" bar across the screen. The lense does not move outwards after I turn the power on, nor does the plastic sliding screen close when I turn the camera off. The lense is exposed whether or not the camera is on or off. The lense does not make any sounds when I turn the camera on, but I hear (what I think) are the gears when I turn the camera off. When the camera is on, the screen is working, but the image is blurry. I tried other poste

I turned on my cam to see the camera making everything look distorted on the screen and distorted when I actually take a picture.

My camera (DSC-T70) got wet (shame on me). When I first turned it on, it worked fine but then it threw an error that said my battery wasn't capatible. I thought maybe I fried the battery so I bought a cheap generic one and it still threw the same error. I then thought maybe I needed to use an original Sony battery. I tried one of them and it still isn't working. It will come on for a second and the screen will show but then it throws the error and turns off. Is my camera toast??..:-(
