Having problems with your Sony Digital Cameras ?

Model:DSCW55 switch on and no view on screeen, the word ACCESS appears on screeen, and after some time the camera asks in words to be switched OFF and ON. Photos in the camera can be viewed and also down loaded to my computer. Have also in Menu re FORMATTED, no result. Also have removed the battery and replaced. no change ???


Answers :

Hi,
This is lens mechanism problem that does not send initialize signal to system control chip because of defective sensor for some reason.
System control chip will try three times to extend and fold lens mechanism then give up with "turn power off and on again" message.
Lens assembly need to be replaced by local camera repair shop.
Let me know if you have additional question.
Thanks.

I have a D5000 Nikon and a Panasonic SD/HC 4GB card. I have formatted the card and taken a number of pictures. I have loaded the necessary soft ware supplied with new camera but cannot download any pictures.The computer is ok as i can download pictures taken on my wifes Casio EXLIM.

If you are using a card reader of some sort (other than using the camera to download the images), it may not be SDHC compliant. Have you tried using the camera to download the images via the supplied cable? If you've taken the images in RAW format, t ... Nikon COOLPIX L3 Digital Camera

Didnt realise I furst had to format the memory card for my new Nikon D60. Took lots of photos at the weekend but when I took out the card to download the images there was nothing on it. However I can still view the images in the camera's display screen. I have loaded the disc that came with the camera on to my computer but have not as yet been able to work out how to download the pictures. Bearing in mind the memory card was not formatted I just want to know if I will be able to download

I normally use a small 32mb memory card in the olympus D-390 but used an olympus fe-130 over the holidays with a 256mb memory card. I do not have the usb cord for the fe-130 so I put the 256mb card in the d-390 camera and plugged it into my computer to load up my photos but I get a blue screen on the camera with options of Power off or format. Is the card too big for the camera? it works fine in the other to let me take photos and view them, if I had the cord for it or went to a store to print


Many cameras will not read cards written on other, different cameras. There should be no problem taking the card to a store and having the pics printed or put on a disc. Or get a cord for the 390, or a card reader for your computer. ... Olympus Camedia D-390 Digital Camera

My new Canon G11, purchased in August,2010: 1) The camera cord (to load photos from camera to computer) is no longer interfacing, but the card works (I don't think it is the software as it malunctions on both office PC and home Macpro). Also noticed that sometimes when trying the cord, when I turn camere on, the lens comes out, which never happend when transferring photos via cord 2) I noticed shortly thereafter that the camer no longer "beeps" when the green in-focus boxes appear on hte view


It sounds to me like one or more of the wires in the cord has broken, or there is a problem with the USB port on the computer. Try swapping to the other ports to see if the problem goes away before going forward.If the problem is present ... Canon PowerShot G11 Digital Camera

Try formatting through the computer rather than from within the camera itself. Or, just open the card on the computer, select all, then delete. There's probably a large file in there somewhere that the camera just doesn't have enough ooomphh to move ... Digital Cameras
