Having problems with your Sony Digital Cameras ?

Lens ? Are the lens' from my old reliable sony f828 compatible with the sony alpha 300 I am thinking of ordering? Is there a fix if not?


Answers :

You can try going to the camera store, and finding an adapter ring for it I've got an alpha 100 and can use konica/maxxuum lenses, and with an adapter I can also use Pentax screw mount.I wouldn't have bought the sony a100 unless it would take my other lenses too. Take the old lens and the a300 in to try out for a good fit.

I have a Sony DSC-W370 and the outermost glass lens has been scratched (by a piece of sand, I think). It's ruining every shot I take, really, but everything else on the camera works fine. I can't seem to find a replacement part and I wouldn't know how to fix it even if I had a spare. How would I take it apart, for example? What I'm wondering is whether it would be possible to have this outside piece of glass polished and if I do would it ruin the image? I was thinking of taking it to an e


You cannot replace the lens assembly. This must be done by a Sony repair service center. You cannot "polish" the lens without completely ruining it. Replacement is going to be expensive. Get an estimate and then decide if it's worth it. ... Sony Cybershot DSCW370 Digital Camera

Hi, I own a Sony Cybershot camera, and it has been giving a few problems as of this week. The lens keep re-adjusting in and out when I turn the camera on to take pictures. It however responds just fine when in picture-view mode. There is a screen prompt that says 'Access' when the camera is turned on, as well as the message 'turn off camera and start again'. I do not think that the camera had fallen at any time, and it is just under a year old. Thanks a lot for your response, Sarah.

Hello typrice, at the second paraghrap you said: "Or the battery ran down with the lens extended." as a possible cause. I'm quite sure this is what happend with my camera (is a FE-340 model) so I tryed all the fixes 1 to 4, because I don't think it is a blocking problem of the lens. The simtom is just as discribed (lens go out and in 3 times, then turn off). I still can't fix the problem, there is any way to restart the software?? I find it should be simple to fix but still have no success... PL

My Samsung TL220 lens won't close. It doesn't display an image on the front or the back. However, when I trigger the menu, the lcd displays "No Image File". It does go through and displays all the different menu options, so the lcd must be o.k. Could this be fixed with software or software update or do you think this is a hardware problem? ( I've noticed several TL220 that have this problem.) Is it an easy fix & how much do you think it would take to fix? Thank you.


Well, there must be a setting that was unintentionally set. First, I need you to try restoring the camera to its default settings. Go to Menu settings and then choose Reset. Let me know if this works or not so that we can move forward to other fixe ... Samsung DualView TL220 Digital Camera

I have a Sony Cybershot DSC W100. I accidentally dropped it and now it says 'Access' and the lens opens and closes three times then beeps and says, 'Turn the power off and on again'. I have done this and it still doesn't work. I tried to initialize the settings - that didn't work either. I even played around with the lens some, and that didn't fix it.
