Having problems with your Sony Mavica MVC-FD73 Digital Camera ?

Same problem as other person, do you have a solution?


\015 I use(d) a Mavica FD73 for five years. I sell antique jewelry and silver online, and therefore need a camera with an exceptional macro mode. The FD73 provided me with superb close-up shots of the pieces I was photographing.\015\012\015\012However, two days ago I was photographing when the shutter button apparently just stopped working. Everything else on the camera works: playback mode, picture mode, the buttons all work. It's just that when I press the shutter, nothing occurs (i.e., the flash, if turned on, does not work; the green dot on the LCD does not appear; and of course, no picture is taken). Has anybody ever experienced this before, and if so, is it anything I can fix without paying ~200.00 to send it to Sony and have it fixed? (I can buy a replacement on eBay for that much, so I do not want to do that).\015

Answers :

Have you repair it ? I Solve the very same problem with my FD-75 just yesterday !
Dont give up - i am expecting a call from my daughter was the first to experirnce the format problem, she fixed it but i cant seem to get it formatted myself. i will let you know what the problems are asap

I have a EX-Z3 (product no. 2031914A) camera. I recently upgraded my PC which runs Microsoft Vista - previously I ran Windows Office 2000 Professional and with Picasa 2 had no problems. However, my new computer sappears not to recognise the Casio camera as an attached device...I have loaded and reloaded the software and checked and double checked connections and the USB cable. What could be the problem and is there a simple solution (for a non-technical person)?? Many thanks. Roger Neilson r.nei

Same problem "Hello pros I need help. The lens on my digimax cyber 530 will not close(retract) completely when I turn off the camera. When I turn it on it gives a 'whirr ing' sound and then auto shuts off. Out of desperation I have manually 'pulled' out the lens. it stays that way until i turn it off and it retracts only halfway. Can anyone help this senior? thank you kindly" I have the exact same problem with this person. And the solution you gave is not that useful,since I'd have to p

Camera problem Hi, I see you did follow my advice , saved what you could, and the result was a corrupted memory card as I suggested. Normally on Fixya this is given a fixya mark, as it was a correct diagnosis - leading to a solution. By giving this mark, it shows a positive course of action for other to follow who have similar problems. I wish you to consider rating this as a fixya instead of a thanks for trying, as this mark is for comments that were tried but do not lead to a solution. Thank y

Up/downloading problems We have several W55's and love them, but 1 of them is no longer downloading to the computer. When we hook it up, and turn it on, the lens extends as though to take a picture. We put the memory card into the other camera and downloaded that way, but the messed up camera is about to go with my son back to California, so our "temporary solution" won't work anymore. Its as though the computer doesn't recognise that camera at all. If there isn't a solution to our problem, does

File error very so often after clicking a few photographs the camera shows FILE ERROR . On the first review the camera displays the photograph there after the photos are lost. the only solution to the problem is to format the memory card after which it clicks a few photographs & then the same problem occurs. is it the problem of memory card or a problem with the camera


It could be either. There is not any way to tell, but if the problem is too bad I would replace the memory card first and then address the issue within the camera if it continues.\015\012\015\012David Millier\015\012Advance Camera Repair ... Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H5 Digital Camera

Zoom problem I bought my SP350 Olympus in Dubai. My friend dreeped champagne in the lens, so I guess it glued the inner mechanisms. The problem is that sometimes it opens just fine, but when I start zooming it get stuck and beeps and the screen shows ZOOM PROBLEM or something like that, does anyone have a solution to that? Thanks in advance


Well you could bite the bullet and strip the camera down and douse the lens parts in alcohol (the real stuff from a chemist) but the lenses are really hard to put back together again. If you contact a guy named John at [email protected] He is a ... Olympus SP-350 Digital Camera

My Nikon D5000 gives out blurry pictures and the auto focus sometimes does not work. I've sent the lens to be examined & repaired and today I tested it again after being repaired. Today I took a picture of a person standing in front of a wooden fence and instead of focusing on the person (which was my intention), the camera focused on the fence. The result: The fence is sharp but the person is blurry. What causes this? Is it the lens or the body? How can I solve these problems?

Downloading Pics I'm having the same problem...all of my pics downloaded just fine the first time. Now when I try downloading I keep getting "No camera found" error box even though I know it's there. I've tried everything except uninstalling and reinstalling ZoomBrowser Ex because I don't know if I would lose my pictures. Did you ever find a solution to the problem? I think it's a software problem because it's mentioned in their troubleshooting user guide. but they don't really give a sure fix.

Bad Battery My DIgimax 530 has had battery problems for some time now. I know that this problem has not been like this forever. When I put a new battery in, it uses it quite quickly, then says low battery. The only problem is, when I test the batteries with my battery tester, it says that they are partially full (still in the "good" zone). I am just a kid and don't have much money, I use it for the video feature. It's warranty has timed out, Is there a simple solution?

Appreciation CanadaBruce I was browsing the website since I have a Nikon D80. Considering the fact that Nikon sells this as an amateur camera (meaning not a cheap solution), I suspect their Q&A and test wings are probably getting a lot of flak internally for the problems its users experience intermittently. Besides the F-err with 18-135 lens, I have not experienced other problems yet. I hope and pray to whatever powers there be it stays that way. One way I have tried to get around this problem i

Broken MIrror? well your sub-mirror is broken inside of the camera, i had the same problem, it just happens by itself after extended use of the camera, and it is not a means for recall by canon so you have to deal with it yourself.  this website can fix it for $130 and they will replace it with a metal piece so it doesn't happen again(original piece is weak plastic) I just read the above solution.  It looks like I may have the same problem - I have easily taken 50,000 pictures with my Canon Rebe
