My sony I just got a DSC-S40 from a friend. I actually swoped my previous camera for this one. When I switch it on, the lens seems to get stuck and not come out all the way. I makes a grinding noise and does not show any picture on the screen. The flash goes off when I push the button, and the little guide dots on the lcd screen shows, but the the screen stays black. I am able to view the photo's that are on the camera taken before this problem, but am unable to take any photo's now. The shutter

Finepix s9500 Hi i have a finepix s9500m digital camera and lately all the photos i take of my kids seem to be just a little blurry but the background in perfect, very crisp. i have only had this camera a short time and can not find the manual. these photos are taken inside but even outside photos the camera seems to focus on the background rather than the people in the foreground. so lighting doesnt seem to be the issue. i have no idea what the camera is meant to be set on to take beautiful por

Blurry/strippy photos I just got to Bilbao in Spain doing a photographic research project but every time and try and take a photo and view it comes out strippy with lots of little lines really close together and interspersed with a couple of fat ones too!!

My camera (Sony DSC-T100) is about 3 years old. It has worked perfectly in that time but recently, outdoor photos show a lot pink where it does not belong (sky, side walks, etc.). Indoor pictures still look great, with or without flash. Sounded similar to some of the bad CCD discussions I have seen, but my camera seems to have been built after that problem was supposedly fixed by Sony. I tried calling the number (866-703-7669) I have seen in several postings, but it does not seems to work.

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

I purchased a Sony cybershot DSC- S930 and inserted the Lexar memory stick (supposedly compatible with a sony camera) and upon turning the camera on there is an error message stating there is not internal memory (as the internal memory only has room for 2 photos). I cannot seem to be able to use the memory (8Gb) and have tried to go into Setup - Format- but there are no options to format the stick, only to erase the internal memory.
