Having problems with your Sony Mavica MVC-FD75 Digital Camera ?

Sony MVC-FD75 Camera won't accept floppy disk

\015 Camera is on; tried to insert a disk - it goes halfway in and stops. Thought I had it backwards, but didn't. Turned it over and tried again. It won't go in. I recharged the battery to the fullest extent, thinking it might be low and have something to do with the problem, then retried inserting the disk. That did not help either.\015\012\015\012Should I have a certain setting before I insert the floppy disk? What do you think the problem is? Everything worked fine until I turned it on the other night, touched something on the setting accidentallly as I was handling the camera; it beeped 3 times and I then turned it off.\015\012\015\012Type of disk I purchased is Memorex PC Formatted Diskettes\015

Answers :

I tried all of the above because I had the same problem, I ended up snapping the back of the camera. (Broke it),
\012 I bought my FD-91 for $1300.00 cash back when they 1st came out.
\012 I've sold over $150,000 worth of guitars with this camera.
\012 Some of the most Exotic Vintage were taken with this camera.
\012 I'm going to Miss her. :(
It sounds as if the eject mechanism didn't quite do it's job last time it was used. It could be stuck half way between in and out. Try closing the camera and with a fully charged battery keep pushing the eject button and see if it clears the problem.\015\012\015\012You can imagine that after all those years dust and gunk has built up inside. It's just a bloody shame they can't build cameras today to last that long.\015\012\015\012At the worst all you'd have to do is pull the back off and have a good look at the drive mechanism. Or pick one up for $10 on Ebay and swap the drives over.

I could not get my floppy disk out and the paper sticky that describes what is on the disk got stuck. I had to get it out with a tweezer. The spring load would not push it out. NOW, I cannot put my floppy disk back in. It stops at a certain point and I do not want to push it. I have a Sony MVCFD81 and I love this camera. I need it fixed. How much and how long does it take?
