Having problems with your Sony A55 Digital Camera ?

I have a Sony A55. I have used it for many years but must confess I do not use all of the features yet. Today I went outside to take pics. I focused on a subject and clicked to take the pic, The Sony beeped continually for about 5 seconds then took the pic. This is so freaking annoying. Have I accidently set it to a setting to make it do this? Thank you!

After the second or third picture that I take the camera freezes up and the "red busy" light continuously flashes. and will not let you do anything or let you push any buttons. The only way to get out of it is to take the battery out of the camera and put it back in. After doing so none of the pictures that I just took show up. What do I DO?!

Error message I continue to get error messages on my kodak c643 6.1 mega pixel camera. I hate to dump the camera because it's been such a great camera.

On my Sony Cybershot DSC-P8 camera, the shutter will not operate when I press the shutter button to take a picture. Everything else seems to be working. This happened all of a sudden. The camera took about 8 pictures, then after turning it off for about 2 hours, it would not take any more pictures. This happens even after I push the reset button, take the battery in & out and the memory stick in & out. I have not had any problems with this camera until now.

Error E:62:10 My Sony Cybershot DSC-T9 has suddenly flashing E:62:10 all the time. The camera is also taking longer than usual to get to the taking pictures stage eg, when you flick open the lense, it takes around 10 seconds for anything to show.  Does this have to do with the error that is flashing up - I can't get rid of it.

Sony camera turns on but screen is just bright white, can't see the images I'm taking or the menu. I can press the menu buttons and can tell that the buttons work because I hear the beeping noise.

I took my camera to the beach, took a picture and put it back in my bag. I then took the camera back out to take another picture the lens extended but then it went back in again it went to go back out but stopped and a loud beeping noise started and a message saying lens error restart camera. I don't know how to restart the camera and if that means turning it of then on it still doesn't work. What can I do now?

My Pentax W90 camera won't stop taking pictures when I turn it on. At first, it would take 2 pictures without me pressing the shutter and the screen would get "locked" (no menu or other buttons would do anything). Then, after changing the battery, the camera continually takes pictures until I turn it off. The flash goes off with each picture. I took it in the ocean with me and I noticed it started while I was snorkeling. I don't think I got anywhere near the 20 foot depth limit. I dried it

I have a sony DSC-W150 and the camera turns on but it says "for use with compatible battery only" and then turns off. I talked to a sony representative and they told me to take the battery out and then hold the power butter for 30 seconds but that didn't work. They told me that it is probably the firmware and said it would cost over 200.00 dollars to get it fixed is there any way I can fix this myself? What else can be the problem?

Flash problem So, I set the camera to 'Flash On'. I take a picture and the flash goes off for about a quick second. I look at the picture and it's nothing but a black background, sometimes white where I can only slightly see the object I took the picture of. What's wrong with my camera? This only happens sometimes, by the way. Sometimes I take a picture and everything's normal.

The camera was dropped in water for a few seconds. I managed to take the battery and memory card out after I retrieved it from the water. The camera was then dried and I was able to take a few pictures after the mishap. It's been a few weeks now and the camera does not work. I tried to charge the battery, thinking it was a bad battery, but the battery charger would continuously blink a red flash for hours! Can this camera be saved?
