Having problems with your Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W50 Digital Camera ?

Blured Pictures A few weeks ago, I sent in a DSCW50 camera under warranty. I used the camera during the holidays and the problem still persists: images continue to come out blurred and out of focus. I feel extremely DISSAPOINTED about this SONY product and I really regret the day I purchased this camera. I have done an extensive research over the web and I just learned that I am not the only consumer having a problem with this SONY product. In addition, in comparison with the images taken


Answers :

When you sent the camera in did they give you a diagnosis? Even set to macro it shouldn't affect wider angle pictures. My money would be on a fault with the autofocus, sony probably should have replaced the unit. I wouldn't give up on sony though, every cybershot i've used (which quite a few) has always given good results and never had a fault. I agree i've seen plenty of dsc w30's/35's/50's/55's etc models on ebay with breakdown problems of one sort or another, but all manufacturers have problems.

I am in France on vacation from USA and am really bummed as My Sony Cybershot DSC-W370 will not close. The display says "Turn the Power off and on again". I've done this several times with no results. I am staying at a remote villa with no phone service. Can you help me via email? I have had many Sony cameras in the past and have preferred this to my Canon since it is so hard to carry. As I recall previous similar problem was resolved by a reset hole I pushed a pin into but I see no reset

My Sony 7.2 Cybershot camera recently ran out of battery, so I charged it. Once it was done charging, I put the battery back in. The screen showed up asking me to insert the current date and time, so I did so. Next, the zoom lense went out and in, out and in, and out and in while the screen said "Access". Next, it told me to turn the camera off and on again. Nothing happens when I do so, and I've done it about 10 times to no avail. Is this a fixable problem?

I have a Sony Cybershot DSC-P73 that I have had for many years now. I have never had any problems with the camera till now. It has never been dropped or anything, but the camera will not zoom in or out at all. I have researched this problem but have not had any luck finding a solution. Any suggestions?


It's possible with how old it is the zoom motor has worn out, I've seen that before with the older Sony digital cameras. It's possible for it to be repaired but it's more cost effective to get a new camera from my experience. Hope this helps. ... Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-P73 Digital Camera

Memory problem... I have a Sony camera (Carl Zeiss, Vario-Tessar; 7.2 megapixels ;4x optical zoom ) for nearly 4 years and everything has been working great. And today I took a photo of my cat and wanted to upload it on the computer and as usual I connected it with the USB to the computer and then this thing "Memory Stick" appeared and when I click the folder in my computer for the camera mass storage there weren't any photos. And that's not really a problem but when I disconnected it a

Battery/power-up problem Camera will not stay powered up. The "low battery" indicator shows up on the display, and then it shuts off shortly thereafter. I've tried many combinations of AA batteries to make sure it wasn't really a low battery problem. I have not used any of the batteries Sony warns against in their manual (e.g. Manganese, etc.). Any ideas before I go look for a new camera? Thanks in advance for your help. MG


For what its worth I had this same problem with both rechargeables and\015\012alkcalines. Fresh batteries were rejected after just a few shots and\015\012were clearly NOT dead. Solution seems to be either use Sony's NP-NH25\015\012cybershot battery w ... Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-S90 Digital Camera

I purchased this camera yesterday. I tried to download pictures and got all the ARC products download which I really do not want and then could not find the way to just download the photos onto my PC. We did have the camera set to the USB setting on the camera. Does this not have a simple way to just download the pictures? I have had KoDak easyshare cameras and a Canon and never had this problem before.


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster t ... GE A1255 Digital Camera

I have a problem with my sony cyber-shot dsc T-3. Everything is all right except that there is probably a problem with the lense as the image (on the screen when I want to take a photo or film) is not right (it is pink, dark with lines on it). It is not a problem with the screen, because I can look at my photos / videos which were done before this problem happened. I think it is because I tried to use the camera in a hospital (I had a baby last week) when I was in a surgery room. Maybe too magne

I have a Sony Cybershot DSC-P92 and it always has been working properly untill today. When I inserted a fresh pair of charged batteries the powerlight immediatly comes on, even before I turned the camera on. When I press the powerbutton and the camera starts I have to re-set the date, which is odd. After that done and ready for use the flash doesn't go off and it starts beeping and displays an error message: E:91.01 Is this problem fixable or should I throw it out of the window (metaforica

Hi welcomejee, I read all your solutions regarding the digital camera Sony DSC N2. I really have to thank you for your precious Some of the problems are very similar to mine: After the camera fell on the ground from about 2 meters in off mode the lens would come out and immediately back in 4 times in a row. After that the lens is back in, a beeping sound comes up and on the display it is written to "Turn the power off and on again". Of course that does not help at all. The lens is opening


George, this is most likely a lens issue, and more precisely, probably a stripped gear when it fell. You will have to disassemble the entire unit to get at the lens assembly, and will probably be a professional by the time you get through! ... Digital Cameras

Aperture Error My camera is displaying a code 0x58. I spoke with the Sony representative, and she said it is actually 0x5B, but it really looks like an 8. Anyway she said the error means a problem in the aperture programming. She had no idea what would trigger such a thing to happen or how to prevent it from happening again. We will have to pay $228 to send it in for repair with no reassurance it won't happen again. We take very good care of the camera. Never banging it around, letting dust or r

Focus There is one problem that I have with this camera - Auto Focus in low lighting and it has really limited manual focus. Outdoors this camera is outstanding, I haven't found any pitfalls outdoors yet. 10x optical zoom plus 2.5" LCD WOW. Although the LCD is littly choppy, but I don't care about that, pictures turn out really gooood. Anyways back to Auto Focus problem. Do any of you have the same problem? Or this is my ability problem? That limited manual focus really bugs me! I'd like to hear

My Sony Alpha 200 digital camera takes lovely pictures, but as I am a beginner and don't really know much about apertures and shutter speeds and how complex they are, I'm having great difficulty in getting it to focus properly in the manual setting. All other settings are fine, but the image in my viewfinder is very blurry when I look through before taking the shot. I have altered the diopter for my eyes as I wear glasses, so that isn't the problem. Is there something I'm either doing wrong, or
