Can't get rid of "turn the power off and on again"
Thu, 14 Sep 2017 04:07:48 +0000

Thanks maitha.
Your trick worked. Smashed the bottom on my palm a few times while it was on with the lens extended, careful to not hit the lens with my hand. It worked on a Sony HX80 I just purchase. You saved me stress and a few hundred dollars ate lease. I cant thank you enough.

E:62:10 on DSC-T9
Tue, 12 Sep 2017 07:38:25 +0000

I too have the same problem of error of E:20:10 which was constantly and annoyingly flickering during using my camera DSC HX 300 SONY camera.
When I googled it, it has given the list so many people above having the same problem. I read most of them and wanted to do trials.
So switched on the camera zoomed it and removed the battery form the socket.

I then gently tapped on all sides of the camera and replaced the battery. When I switched it on lo! The error has vanished without a trace!!!!!!!!

Thanks to all the persons above

Date Stamp JPEG

It means the image does not contain the date and time information in the photo. Or it uses some new/unknown format that this utility can't handle.

I squeezed the Sony logo and the lcd screen worked again. Thanks to all who figured this out. Much faster than taking the camera apart.

Tele-extenders for older canon lens
Fri, 02 Jun 2017 05:11:19 +0000

I am looking for a 2x tele-extender for an older canon lens -- EX 100-200 f.6 from the earliest days of the EOS film cameras. It works fine on my D5, but the current Canon extender offerings only work on a limited set of Canon lenses. Is there a third-party solution?

DSC-H2 Shutter release button
Mon, 24 Apr 2017 05:15:10 +0000

This is not an "easy" fix by any means. I ordered the replacement shutter button from eBay for around $3. Weeks later, upon receiving it, I attempted to twist the shutter assembly counter-clockwise to remove but was unsuccessful. The only way to remove the assembly was to pop it up vertically which in turn broke a tiny plastic piece off underneath. This piece it turns out was an integral part in re-securing the assembly to the camera. The shutter assembly is now unable to be secured rendering the camera inoperable.

Do yourself a favor and buy a new one on Ebay for around $40 (as of 4/17) and save yourself the time and hassle. Best of luck!

Fixing E:62:10 Error on Sony DSC-TX5 Camera
Fri, 14 Apr 2017 22:57:58 +0000

My Sony DSC-TX5 camera stopped working and showed an E:62:10 error message on the display. After taking the battery out and reformatting the memory card and also trying another memory card, the camera still would not focus and take pictures. Thinking that I had nothing to lose, I gently bumped the camera a few times and like magic the error message disappeared and the camera appears to be working fine again!
