I just got off the phone with the Sony service department and it looks like my baby is dead...well maybe not dead put it is going to cost more to fix it than it is worth. My husband just wants to get new camera. Any ideas for a comperable camera? I have gotten spoiled by this camera and need one that is as good or better in the $200 -$600 price range.
I think one of the ten pins used for reading the memory stick is either bent or broken. There is no on-board memory so if it can't read the card it won't work. I've talked to Sony and they won't even look at it until I pay them $250. If the repair is more than that, I may as well get a new camera. Though I know it is not a problem with the memory sticks, they don't make this kind of memory sticks anymore anyway. Designed obsolesence at work. From what I've read, 5 years is a pretty good run for a digital camera now days. I just don't want to be disappointed with what I buy to replace it with.
