Having problems with your Sony Digital Cameras ?

I have a DSC-W170 Cyper shot. Love the camera, but recently the pictures have a vertical thin blue line, just to the right of center. What is that??? Is is worth repairing???


Answers :

Hi,
Thin lines are due to shutter speed problem in lens assembly and you need to replace complete lens assembly. Lens assembly (PART NUMBER 178868921) is available in Part Store, click to have part number and price info. Note: DSC-W150 & DSC-W170 have same Lens.
Now you can decide to get it repaired or not.
Thanks.

Olympus stylus zoom 140. Camera was great for about 2 years, pictures were great. My last two rolls of film developed with large, orange light streaks running vertically just to the right of center. Additionally, there were several "blobs" of orange light left of center. This occurred on 90% of the pictures, the remaining 10% were fine. Is this a light leak in the camera body? Is it worth trying to get Olympus to repair? Of course, the camera is now out of warrenty. Thanks for your time

When turned on, my Olympus 700 Stylus digital camera shows a thin green vertical line on the right side of the viewfinder--7/16 of an inch to the left of the right edge of the viewing area. Part of this line from the bottom up appears on the images downloaded into my computer. However, when the intensity of the light is increased, the visibility of the line in the viewfinder and downloaded image is decreased. What is the problem and can it be corrected?

My 450d canon won't turn on and when the battery is in, the WB button (second on the right side of the screen) is blue. I have a feeling this means' get it repaired' as I had a friend borrow it and said they spilt a drink near it but not on it, but this seems like they may have spilt the drink ON my camera and have caused some sort of water damage. I'm really quite worried as I'm often told repairs cost more than the camera is worth and I don't want to have to buy another!

Olympus X-42 Camera - the screen has gone white (with a few thin green/purple vertical lines). When I switch on the camera the screen is white, there is no picture or menu displayed. I have checked by plugging it into the tv, and it takes pictures and goes into menus fine - it just doesn't display anything on camera screen. I have only had the camera for a week, and have not stored it anywhere humid. Is there anything I can do to fix, or do I just have to take it to get repaired?


There doesn't appear to be a solution. I have had to send mine off to be repaired. They don't provide a camera case but it is a very necessary piece of aquipment. I was told that the screen had been pressed. I can only think that this occured when tr ... Digital Cameras

Should I repair My G9 or buy a new one? It has been wet and cannot turn on. I opened it up to check the state of the electronics, and there's quite a bit of corrosion on the elctronics. It seems to be centered on the right side of the camera. (when looking from the back) I didn't go further than removing the screen, as it was apparant I couldn't fix it myself :) So should I just throw it in the trash or should I send it in for repair?

Thomas; sadly, it is not worth the amount of money you will need to spend to repair your G9. Liquid and sand are the two biggest camera killers. It's a real shame that happened. The 110$ (I'm in Canada so I don't know what the exchange is to your cur ... Canon PowerShot G9 Digital Camera

I have a pentax IST DS. Three months ago I had the camera repaired with the technician telling me there was something wrong with the memory card reader. Symptoms - able to take a picture but when I would go to review the picture I would either get a message that said the image could not be viewed or the image would appear with faint vertical lines on it. When trying to remove these images from the memory card the files did not appear. Three months after the repair the same problems are occurin

Exposure Control I have an Optio S6 that I accidentally dropped into a building's girder while doing Kite Aerial Photography. From that point on I've gotten very poor exposures. Out at a beach the photos were totally black. There are only some small nicks right above the flash, but my guess it was a pretty good hit. I took it to a Pentax Repair Center but the cost of repair equalled the cost of a new camera. I hate to just throw it out, any suggestions?
