Having problems with your Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-T33 Digital Camera ?

Hi guys... I'm having the same issue with my Sony DSC-T33 as has been described here by many other people. I've done the Reset, and the Power Reset, online with the Sony Tech people. They say now it's a hardware issue and I'll have to send it in.......... NO MENTION of this known issue with the component part. So I bring it up and am told that is not in their database, so they don't know about it. What? I'm given a phone number for the "Customer Relations Team". Now in my online research


Answers :

Sorry to say that Sony stopped repairing the faulty CCD's that were installed in their cameras for free two years ago. No matter what they told you, they DO know about it, as it is a well known issue (Sony actually produced the faulty CCD's that were installed not only in their cameras, but also in many of their competitors). And I do concur with your displeasure, as I similarly have a now useless Sony camera with the same CCD issue (cost a pretty penny too). And as you've noted Canon continues to repair their cameras with this issue, although they have started phasing out this repair for some of the older models. All I can say is, remember this the next time you're in the market for purchasing a camera. Definitely let it influence your decision. It did me (Canon, there is no substitute! ;-)

The screen is wavy and the photos come out wavy - there is nothing more to say except when I took it to my Sony dealer he told me that it was a problem with 8 cyber-shot models and there had been a recall by Sony in the past. Can I send my camera back to them? If so, what address please?

PowerShot SD300 New to this stuff but flash isnt going off at all. Taking pics outside works perfect or if there is enough light.....Just called Canon and they were not that helpful at all. Told me i can send in at my expense but probably would cost about $90 or more to fix and/or I can upgrade my camera (for models that are older than I can get for under $200....they want to offer them at $150). Anybody have an issue with the flash not going off? the only thing the canon buy told me is there mi

I was taking pictures for my photography class and after 3-4 pictures in, the camera froze. I turned it off and on and it did it again. When I tried to check the photos I took, it told me "read error". So, I clicked on the reset option and I was able to take and look through my photos.

My Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H7has bought up an issue where it brings up an 'usb connecting' screen for one or two seconds occasionally when using the camera. This does not effect the photo taking quality at all, it just means I have to wait for the screen to clear. Do I have to get a tech. to fix it, or can it be done in camera. 2 years old and out of warranty. Very annoying. Any thoughts. Thanks, Ian.


Hi ian. this is not a normal camera operation. usb connecting screen should only appear during camera to computer connection. so if your using the camera and this happens intermittently it would indicate that there is a mulfunction inside the camera ... Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H7 Digital Camera

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?
