Having problems with your Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-S500 Digital Camera ?

File Error My Sony Cyber-Shot is showing "File Error" on my camera and I can't seem to upload the 4-5 pictures that are on my camera. The rest seem to all read "File Error" on a blue screen. When the pictures were first taken, we had no problem looking through them on the camera and then all of a sudden ths "File Error" showed up and when we went to upload the pictures, nothing loads. Is there anyway I can get those pictures?

File error After shooting a number of pictures on two different memory cards, the display begins to show "file error" and the images after that time can not be recovered. If the card is moved to another camera it still show "file error". A new card will work until the same problem crops up. After that point the card seems to be permanently damaged.

System Error I downloaded the pictures onto a CD from my Konica Minolta today like I always do. When I was finished I went onto the camera to delete the pictures and format the card - like I always do. (I have had this camera for right at 1 year) When I turn the switch to the "view" mode it comes up with "system error" within about 2 seconds and the whole camera turns off. If I go really fast I can delete one picture at a time. I can still take pictures and they still show up (for 2 seconds).

File error Hi After taking about 20 photos, I went back to view them & the last 6 had disappeared showing only a blue screen & file error on the display.

My Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ2 camera has a blurred display within 25 seconds of being turned on when in any mode other than playback. When the display blurs, it quite quickly becomes unviewable, and if I try to take a photo, an error message saying WRITE ERROR PLEASE CHECK THE CARD shows on the screen. The card seems fine and pictures I took before today all look good, both on the display and in a computer. Is there any fix, or do I need a new camera?


This is a problem with the camera lens and yes this can still be fix but you need to have it check on a service center but that price will not be cheap so if I may suggest it will be better to get a new camera..... ... Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ2 Digital Camera
