Having problems with your Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W200 Digital Camera ?

Sony Cybershot DSC-W200 digital camera. Suddenly and for no apparent reason it can no longer be switched on. Blank screen, no lens movement, no sound, totally dead. I substituted a spare, fully charged battery, but still no response. Until now it has always worked perfectly. I just wondered whether there is something else I might try before discarding it? Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Kind Regards Peter Ollis


Answers :

Try this:
Remove the batteries at the same time that you remove the camera's \012memory card. This will allow the camera to reset. The camera does not \012require the memory card to operate, so leave the memory card out as you \012reinsert the batteries. If the camera turns on with the memory card out,\012 but not with it in, you may have a corrupt memory card. Contact the \012memory card's manufacturer for a replacement.
Turn on the camera in playback mode. This mode allows you to turn on the\012 camera without extending the lens. If your camera is already set to \012playback mode, it may appear the camera is not turning on when you press\012 the "on" button, because the lens will not extend.Contact Sony if your camera still won't turn,if you bought your camera new from a licensed retailer, it should come with a one-year manufacturer's warranty.\012Sony Consumer Direct Return Center

Hi there, i just bought a 60D and trying all the functions it has. When im on any creative mode and the lens is set to AF, i cant seem to take a picture or even adjust the AF mode. i even couldnt open the menu itself etc.. i really need your help with this. I'm wondering if the unit I bought has a damage or i pressed something that make it wont work..


I don't think it is something you did wrong. What you can do is go into menu, and clear "All camera settings". This will set it back to default mode. Then try to see what does on af on lense. See if will work on mf mode as well. ... Cannon Digital Cameras

Hi, I have a Ricoh Caplio R5 which appears to be working normally in all areas except that when you switch it on, in both camera and video mode, there is no image on the screen and if you make an exposure, it still makes all the correct noises etc but obviously there is no captured images. The lens etc motorises into the correct position and the lens cover retracts.

I have a new k20D I have had it less than a week and I can't seem to get the auto focus to work. I can manually focus but when on auto I get the red square for a second and then it goes off it does not move the lens into focus and it does not beep. I am wondering if I have a setting wrong but I reviewed the manual and I don't think I am missing something but maybe I am.


Does your lens have a ring on it with various lens openings marked on it such as 3.5, 22 etc.? If so, it should also have a "A" setting which is where you should have it. Also, I'm assuming your lens is an auto-focus lens. ... Pentax K20D Digital Camera

I was shooting today and all of a sudden I got an error code 01, which says that the lens and camera aren't communicating and that I need to clean the lens contacts. For one thing, I'm not sure how to do that and, for another thing, it does it on more than one lens. I just had my Canon 100-400 lens repaired by Canon and I'm wondering if something happen to the contacts that makes that lens and others not communicate properly.

Hi Guys, I have a D200 with a cracked LCD (topplate) and am wondering whether buying a s/h body would be cheaper than getting it repaired.

My Nikon D60 monitor is dark...no image preview, however, playback for viewing pictures taken works fine. I use the viewfinder for taking pictures, but wonder if I've done something to turn off the monitor when the camera is turned on.


No, you have done nothing wrong. The D60 does not have the preview function on the monitor like the compact digital cameras. Nikon gave that function a name. It is called 'Live View'. The newr models like the D90 do have that feature. You can rea ... Nikon D60 Digital Camera

I have a Sony DSC-W370 and the outermost glass lens has been scratched (by a piece of sand, I think). It's ruining every shot I take, really, but everything else on the camera works fine. I can't seem to find a replacement part and I wouldn't know how to fix it even if I had a spare. How would I take it apart, for example? What I'm wondering is whether it would be possible to have this outside piece of glass polished and if I do would it ruin the image? I was thinking of taking it to an e

When in the 'Camera' setting, push the left arrow on the camera to 'Auto' or 'On'. the flash should flash if it is dark enough. also, I don't think you can use the flash when making movies. ... Vivitar Digital Cameras

I have a Canon PowerShot SD500, Digital ELPH. It has been WONDERFUL! Since I have used it a lot and for years traveling, I am wondering how much longer it will work. Is there an average lifespan for these cameras? What camera should I replace it with if I want comparable quality and function? What symptoms will develop when it is reaching the age that it will need to be replaced? I hope it lasts forever as it is a wonderful camera. The only thing it doesn't do is video.
