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

Sony Cybershot My camera display screen is white...nothing else shows...It doesnt matter if its on player, camera or video recorder

Hello !
\015\012I do have the same problem on my W55 purchased in Jan 08 and may I add that I,m extremly careful (grown up with the old and expensive "analog" stuff). So dont put the blaim on you.
\015\012
\015\012The warranty is still on so I will let you know what the repairman tells me in hopefully a short while.
\015\012
\015\012The commonly advocated sollution on the net is to give the camera a god knock just where the "Cybershot" logo is. But in my opinion, knocking the camera about can,t be the right thing.
\015\012
\015\012All this indicates to me that the problem should be a loose contact just where the flat connector from the LCD enters the rest of the electronics, in which case the repair would be very simple once you opened the housing...but we,ll see.
\015\012
\015\012I also would like to mention that my wife has the old preseries type W45 (replaced in 07 by the W50 series) and unlike me she is NOT careful (rolling in the sand, droping it on rocks forgetting it in the rain and so forth) and it still works perfectly. This made me curious. Examining and comparing made it obvious that something dramatic must have happened in the SONY Quality-thinking.
\015\012Personally I WILL RESTRAIN FROM BUING SONY IN THE FUTURE.Especial as it seems that once you bought their **** they lose all intrest in you...aftersales service is not in their dictionary.
\015\012

My camera (a Canon PowerShot SX10IS, if it matters) has this tendency to move in and out of focus when I'm using the video recording feature. For example, I can start the video by filming a stationary object (let's say, a person speaking at a podium a meter or so away) and the video will be in focus. However, even though the person in the video isn't moving except for subtle hand gestures, the camera seems to start to try to focus on something else deeper in the background or closer in the foreg

I can only turn on my Cybershot DSC-N2 while the camera is in playback mode. I can look at the pictures and videos and change settings with no problem.. but when I try to switch to camera or video record mode the camera turns off by itself.

The camera has never been dropped or damaged.

Fiji Finepix F401 - I have had great success with the above camera but it has suddenly developed what I think is a sensor problem. The viewfinder displays a badly blurred and distorted picture which is green and purple in colour. The camera will no longer take any still or video pictures.

GoPro Hero camera. I get a "buzzing" sound on the videos recorded from inside my car. It seems there's some interference with the car electronics, so I've been told (and videos taken with the engine off don't suffer this problem). I've tried to "insulate" the camerea with cooking aluminium sheet, but: 1) I can't cover it entirely, because lens, display and operating buttons must be kept obviously clear; 2) It doesn' solve the problem. Is there any way to solve this problem? Thanks!


The source of the interference is usually the radio signals, so did you try turning off your car radio/music player to see if the problem persists. There are currently no covers that can solve the interference. Your only hope is to suppress the sourc ... GoPro Digital Hero 3 Digital Camera
