W55 - Only soft snap and movie functions work along with battery issue

I recently went to use my camera and found that all of a sudden only the soft snap and movie functions work on the camera. No matter what I set it to, it tells me I have it set to one of those.

Also, even when the camera isn't being used, the battery dies. Is this a problem with my battery or the camera itself?

    some problem (only worked on movie and soft snap), but now it seems that its fixed itself a litle so that only auto, program manual and iso settings dont work, and the camera thinks its on movie mode. Also, whenever I turn it on it asks me to set the date and time, even though it was set before and the battery wasn't removed in the meantime.

I also have a Sony Cybershot but its a W110. The battery indeed will die out when you don't use it. I usually take mine out of the camera and the life extends a fair bit. But sometimes the date and time will have been lost.

About your functions problem, there is most likely a damaged pin inside the spindle or a damaged circuit board which you cant really do much about.
You can however take it to the reseller and claim on warranty if its still in the time of 1 year or 3 years extended.
If its still within warranty and the reseller rejects it, ring SONY up and ask them.

Audio level problemos


This may sound silly,but did you have your finger over the mic on the camera? Its just underneath the lens at the front.
I have generally found that the sound on movies taken with this camera is poor, you need the sound source to be quite close to the camera for clear sound.

Digital zoom doesn't work


Wet has affected the circuitry and could be progressive-[in which case there will be no repair option] best let the camera dry out in a warm place. Take batteries out and let it dry. You could help it along by putting the camera in a snap shut poly-bag with some rice or salt in a cloth/tissue tie to absorb any moisture. As regard the Digital zoom- strict speaking it has no value -it is simply magnifying the centre of the recorded image. rely on the optical zoom and print up bigger section for better clarity.
