Having problems with your Sony Digital Cameras ?

We have pictures on our DSC-W170 camera but when we try to download them. All we get is 4 old pictures and none of the other shots


Answers :

You are probably looking at the pictures on the internal memory, rather than the removeable card. Quick way to tell is look at the camera panel whilst viewing them, If the top right of the information panel has an icon that looks like an eight legged bug - its the internal memory. If it looks like a rectangle with the bottom left corner chipped off - its the memory card.
\015\012
\015\012The software will have an option to change source to the card.
\015\012
\015\012In the sony notes they concede that there are compatibility issues when cards are used between different devices (or are formatted first by a computer). If this is your only device and card, thats an unlikely avenue to pursue.
\015\012
\015\012If you have your own image processing software (such as photoshop) an alternative would be to use a USB card reader. Whilst this does involve removing the card from the camera and inserting it into a reader, you do get a lot less compatibility or resident memory issues.

My Sony cyber-shot DSC-T70/T75/T200 will only take 14 pictures and then it says no memory space in internal memory and doesn't allow me to take more. I have tried deleting all pictures, and I have formatted internal memory, several times over but can still only get 14 pictures maximum. The camera is about 1 year old, and this has only recently started happening. Not sure how to fix it? . Thanks. Hilary

I have a Sony Cyber-shot Super Steady Shot DSC-T10. I have 2 babies under 2 years old and every time they are doing something adorable I can't get the shot because my delay on my camera is so long they are on to the next thing before I can get the cute picture that I wanted. Help! What do I do?


It seems the Red-eye reduction feature of the flash is ON. In this mode, the camera emits a pre-flash and then the actual flash discharges after a delay. Or it could be on Slow ... Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W50 Digital Camera

Sony cyber-shot DSC-W210. On/off button does not work, but I can turn it on using the play button. Press the play button again to get to picture taking mode, but it will not take pictures. Then I get the E:91:01 error message that so many people seem to be talking about. I can remove this message by 'initialising' through the menu, but can't take pictures. I've also tried removing the battery, leaving for a while, then replacing, but to no avail. People seem to think this is a software prob

It's a lens problem - the lens sometimes gets debris in between and does not extend out enough to take clear pictures or the lens is crooked from impact or damage. As for the touch screen and not being able to read the menu on your screen, that's al ... Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T77 Digital Camera

My old camera was an Olympus Camedia c-765 digital. My new one is an Olypmus SP-800UZ 14 megapixel. The more I use the SP-8OOuz the more disappointed with the pictures I take. None of them seem sharply in focus like they were with the Camedia camera. Am I doing something wrong or is it a failing in the camera? I have tried most of the multiple settings but I am just not satisified. I thought with having more megapixels I would get a better picture. Am I wrong? Thank you


No, you are not wrong. When there are more pixels, the picture must be more clearly and you can zoom it more. Because you have experience with another Olympus camera, I'm inclined to believe that\012\012\012something is wrong with your new came ... Olympus SP800UZ Digital Camera

Try Shutter Priority mode (Tv). Adjust the shutter time for an extended shot of several seconds or more. Of course, recommend using a tripod to do this, and using the camera's timer to take the shot to minimize camera shake. ... Canon PowerShot SX100 IS Digital Camera

Red Eye 90% of pictures taken with the DSC-T200 display red eye. I have tried all red eye settings etc.. and cant seem to resolve. It is almost impossible to get a clean close up shot without red eye. Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank You.


I have a suggestion,\015\012\015\012you can use Picasa2 to get rid of the red eye from your pics. however, this is installed on your computer and whenever you will take pictures, there will still be red eye. Picasa2 is very easy to use an ... Sony Cybershot DSC-T200 Digital Camera

Bright pictures I have had my Sony Cyber Shot (DSC-S650) for about 6 mo. I have tried all different settings for the flash but almost all of my pictures come out with the person very white and bright. The pictures are fine if taken outside in natural light but anything other than that and my pictures are very white and bright. I have even tried to turn the flash all the way down on the manual setting. This is the third Sony Cybershot camera that I have owned and have never needed to change any o

There are several programs that will try to recover the data from your camera, or from a memory card. But most of them cost you about $65 to buy the software... Luckily for you though, I have found some FREE software ;-)  & ... Olympus FE-210 Digital Camera

My Cannon Power shot SX120 is less than a year old, I havent dropped or otherwise abused it. One moment the camera was fine, the next moment it has really bad horizontal lines in the pictures. The closer you zoom the worse the lines are. The lines cover the entire picture from top to bottom. I have tried replacing the batteries with fresh ones, even tried a different memory card..nothing seems to help.


Have you tried to reset to original settings in the setup window. I would try that maybe..If that doesn't work then its probably an issue with your sensor unit which is apart of your lens. ... Canon PowerShot SX120 IS Digital Camera

Yesterday I downloaded successfully, as usual, my pictures from the camera into the computer. I made 7 more pictures last night. Today, I tried to download them, but the computer had a "non recognizable files" message. I restarted the computer (a Mac OSX), but now it wouldn't even detect the camera! I tried to see if my 10 years old pressed a button on the camera by mistake, and, after I press the "format" button in the Menu I lost even the images in the camera! 1.

I've got a DSC-S700 that I can't get to take clear pictures, I've tried all different settings and even automatic, still get blurry pictures, it was formated when first purchased, will formatting it again solve my problem? if not what can I do?


The memory card formatting is not the problem. There may be a fault with the camera, in which case you should return it under warranty if you can, but before you go there, have you put the camera into Macro mode? This is an extreme close ... Digital Cameras

I've owned my Sony DSC-T100 for a couple of years now. I really have enjoyed the camera but off and on it starts to vibrate, it has a humming sound as well. the pictures comes out fuzzy and blurred. Doesn't do this all the time but seems to get worse over the course of time when I use it more frequently. used to get better after I would take one picture, then it would settle down and do one ok shot, the next one vibrates, next one ok. Right now no vibration. What is going on?
