Having problems with your Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W30 Digital Camera ?

Sony w30 When I take a photo indoors on auto settings some shots are under exposed some over exposed. I turned off the flash and the shot was perfect, could it be a fault with flash


Answers :

This shouldn't be too hard...

I went to the trouble to track down the manual online. For the sake of convenience, I have stored the manual on my own server.

Click HERE to load the manual. It is in PDF format, so you must have Adobe Acrobat Reader installed in order to view the document. OR you can right-click HERE and save the document to your system and view the file. Save it for future use.

What you need to do is adjust the flash level. The details on the flash level feature are on page 31. There you can see which modes you can adjust the flash level in.

Page 38 explains the dynamics of flash level.

Make sure you try different combinations of settings to get the kind of picture quality you want. Flash is not the only variable to take into consideration when using your camera to get the best image possible. Use the manual to learn about all other features as well.

Good luck and do much expirementation! :)

Cyber-shot T2 Hello This is probably a long shot but I have had my Sony cybershot T2 for about 1 month now and about 2 weeks ago it just died on me and it won't turn on. I didn't drop it, there is a not a single scratch on it, i have charged the battery 2 full but it just wont turn on. At the beginning it would flash as if it was turning on and then stop. Now it won't even do that. I don't know what to do as I loved that camera and it's very new. It worked perfectly before. If you could help me


Hello Henrietta,\015\012\015\012Your problem is exactly my T2's problem. I returned it to the vendor and I was informed that the board is damaged and possible reason is it was dropped. Just like you, I didn't drop my T2. I wish there w ... Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T20 Digital Camera

Last night was taking photos indoors with flash on auto setting. All appeared fine except thre was a vertical line on the viewfinder, not quite half way across. After about 4 flash photos, the flash turned itself off and it wouldn't allow me to adjust the settings back to flash again. I checked the setting and it was still on auto and there was plenty of battery left. Tried a couple of shots and they took, but no flash, so useless. Turned camera off for half an hour then tried again and it was f

Hi. I have a Nikkon D3000, a Sigma 105mm lens, and a round flash ring. I have the settings as: ISO: 200, Shutter Speed: 1/200, F25 for close teeth photos and F8 for face shots. Now I am a dentist and first time user of this camera got the settings from a dental photography website. The proble is: When I take pictures with the flash ring on they turn up black, without the flash ring on and the camera flash on, the pictures turn out clear buy very dark. What am I doing wrong? Thanks.

I have a Pentax K 100 D. I have tried using a Flash Memory card (a Sandisk Ultra 16GB) but without success. The message 'Memory Card Error" is displayed even before I could format it. The card had previously been used to store files from my PC (where it worked perfectly) but the camera could not format it even after I had removed all the files etc by reformatting it in the PC (FAT32). Is there any way I can get to use this flash card in my camera?

The flash has been working fine until last night when I tried to take a picture and the flash was set to auto. When I press the button the little red light beside the flash sign lights up, but the camera does not take the photo. When I set it to flash mode, it still won't take a photo. When I turn off the flash, then it does. What could be the problem? Is it in the settings?

CAMERA IS THREE MONTHS OLD. ON MY LAST OUTING I NOTICED A PERFECT CIRCLE SPOT ONLY IN SHOTS OF THE SKY. THE SPOT IS IN THE IDENTICAL PLACE ON ALL SKY SHOT PHOTOS NO MATTER WHAT FOCAL LENGHT IS USED.

I am trying to find the schematics for the main board for my Panasonic Lumix tz-5 camera. When I try to turn it on it says that it is "Connecting to USB" even though it is not connected. I have taken it apart a couple times to see if there is any corrosion on the usb connection or on the chip that the usb connects to. If I had a schematic of the main board I could possibly follow the circuitry and trouble shot it. If I could find the replacement boards and they were cheap enough I could also rep
