Having problems with your Sony Cybershot DSC-T77 Digital Camera ?

Lens on my sony cybershot 10.1 touch screen is having issues going in and out. First happened on going in, then seemed fine, turned camera back on to take more photos and now it wont go back in all the way to close. Says "turn camera off and back on" on screen, but it does nothing.

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the \012probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use\012\012\012\012\012\012\012 these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly ,\012 try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the \012shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , \012and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then \012try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently \012pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may \012cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another\012 way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and \012then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to\012 not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and \012down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the \012camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your \012camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of \012your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair \012center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to \012replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest\012 you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any \012off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about\012 warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

Hope \012the advise is useful.

When I view my photos I have already taken they look good until I try to zoom in, then the photos go fuzzy in multiple color stripes taking over the screen. Will my photos be fine when I load them to my computer? Is this my camera or my memory card. I put someone else's memory car in my camera and could zoom in and it was fine. I put mine back in my camera, took two pictures, and could zoom in on those photos and it was fine, but not on the previous pictures I have taken. I did plug my camera

My photos always upload to my MAC automatically when I plug the camera into the computer.

Hi there. I have an Olympus E-510 that is about 3 years old. It's been working fabulous until just until recently. I connected the camera to my computer and downloaded some photos just like I always do with no problems - disconnecting it as I always do (USB).
