Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-W1 Digital Camera
The only time it powers on is in the view mode. when the camera is switched to another mode, either picture or video, it shuts off. if a mode other than view is selected when powering on, the light shows green to indicate power supplied but then quickly shuts off. What can i do to get it to work again?
The problem is most likely that your lens is stuck and causing the power to shut down because it cannot move.
A couple solutions would be to either buy a defective camera online and make one good camera from the two if you can do that sort of thing yourself, or secondly have it repaired by somebody.
Don't bother trying to send the camera to Sony if it is out or warranty (though you can call them and verify what I'm about to say) because they will want $150+ to do the repair for you. Parts are not cheap to buy from them.
I know of one very affordable digital camera repair business... because I own it. The name is Darntoothysam, feel free to check us out, we are on that big auction website also (I don't plug their name for free), our seller ID is 'darntoothysam'. If you Google "darntoothysam" you will find us.
We have your repair listed as a package in our store for about $70. This covers a new lens, and return shipping of your camera! We even give a 45 day warranty on parts and labor. If you think you can use us then please check us out, even if you need to ask more questions then please feel free to contact me.
Hope this helps,
