20 Most Recent Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W80 Digital Camera - Page 4 Questions & Answers


Make sure that the batteries in the camera are good and turn it on. Is there a light that comes on to let you know that the camera has power and is ready when you press the power button? Does that light come on and what color is it?

If the light ends up green, then you know the batteries are good and the camera is functioning properly and is ready to take a picture. If this is the case, then after you turn it on - look on the back of the camera for the focus zoom in and out buttons. Sometimes they look like a switch that you can rock right or left. Press the switch and look through the lens. Does press the switch or arrows in either direction clear up your view and allow you to see anything? Are you looking through the lens hole or are you using a small screen to view on the back of the camera? If you are looking at a screen on the back of the camera and that screen is black - it means that you dont have the exterior view option turned on in the cameras settings. Sometimes there is a button labeled "view" on the back of the camera to alternate from the exterior view screen on the back of the camera and using the lens hole view at the top. Press that key to make the view screen turn on. If this option is not turned on yet, press the menu key on the camera and use the arrow keys to scroll through the option choices until you find the image preview choices and turn this option on. Then save this choice and close the menu features to see if it comes on.

If you are not getting a power indicator light when you turn the camera on, then replace the batteries. If the light comes on and its something other then green and steady - (like red and flashing) check your camera manual to see what this indicator means. Some cameras show a red light that is flashing when you turn them on to indicate that the memory card is full. Some camera have a red light that is steady to indicate that the battiers are almost out of power and they will show a picture on the digital to indicate how much power you have left before they shut down. Each model camera is different according to the options it came with.

Press [HOME] to display the home screen. Use cursor-left/right to select the toolbox icon, use cursor-up/down to select the clock icon, and press the button in the middle of the cursor pad.

Full details are in the "Clock Settings" section of the manual (page 68 in my copy). If you need a manual, you can download one from

Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.

Look at my post for a very similar problem. I tried all the steps, pushed and pulled on the telescopic lens thing. Got to the step of hitting it against my palm while turned off, and when I powered it up it worked again.

Welcome to Fixya
Looks like you have a problem with the CCD sensor (charge-coupled device). When the product is used in recording or playback mode, the LCD screen and/or electronic viewfinder may exhibit either a distorted image or no image at all. This problem may occur if the product is exposed to hot and humid environments. There are recall for CCD problem for the DSC-F717 model. I am not quite sure for this particular model.
Thank you for using FIxya!

To solute this problem simply is to use a memory card reader instead of link camera to laptop, as the inside card reader of the camera is consumable, and USB memory card reader can saving the life of it also saving life of the camera interface.
