Sony Never Trumps Canon for Photo Quality

27 May 2009
  • Summary: Canon always takes better quality photos. Memory Stick from Sony is over priced in comparison to standard SD card. I sold this camera to a friend.

White blank screen quick fix

G. R. Boekers, Amazon
26 September 2007
  • Summary: White blank screen quick fix. Try turning off the camera and briskly taping the front of the camera in the palm of your hand a few times. Many DSC-S40 cameras seem to have the same problem. Sony service does not admit to ever hearing of this problem. Bad Service

Horrible Camera - Do Not Buy

Katie, Amazon
28 June 2007
  • Summary: I bought this camera in August of 2005 and have already had to get it fixed three times (all three were within the first year)! It has just broken for the fourth time and is no longer under warranty (it would cost $111 to get repaired!) I would definitely NOT recommend buying this camera.

Poor reliability

J. Hallman, Amazon
27 May 2007
  • Summary: I would never recommend this camera to anyone. The reliability is horrible. We had to send it in twice under warranty to fix a faulty diplay screen and now that it is just out of warranty the screen has stopped working again. I don't think I will ever buy anything made by Sony again.

Nice pictures, as long as the camera lasts (~1 year)

PenThis, Amazon
27 March 2007
  • Summary: I too, loved the camera, despite the small LCD screen size, until it got the infamous White Screen of Death that this particular camera is known for, which usually occurs AFTER the warranty expires (1 year).

Big disapointment, shame on Sony!

Mama Aba, Amazon
3 March 2007
  • Summary: Like others, mine will review pictures but shuts off almost immediately when in I turn it on in still mode. Bought in December 2005, it is now not working. It is scandalous that so many of us have the same issue and Sony is not addressing it. Sony should be forced to recall these cameras.

White Screen of Death Problem - Reset solution

J., Amazon
17 October 2006
  • Summary: There is a workable solution to the white screen of death problem, as offered by A. Jacobe as a comment to Rachel Ellen's Sept 4, 2006 post. This is a good camera when it's working but unfortunately, while within it's Sony warranty period, my S40 suffered 3 episodes of the white-screen-of-death...

VERY disappointing lifespan

Rachel Ellen, Amazon
4 September 2006
  • Summary: I have owned my DSC-S40 camera for 13 months now and was fairly pleased with it until last week the LCD screen suddenly went completely white. I can't access the menu or review pictures taken.

Short Life Span

Anna Donaldson, Amazon
7 August 2006
  • Summary: I have had this camera for 11 months now and back in the market for a new camera. At 5 months, the screen started to go white and I could not access any photos, I could take pictures but not view/erase or even access the menu.
