Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-W5 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Screen turns white snapping a picture

When the top dial is set to auto and taking a picture, the display turns white and the camera sets itself to manual mode. the only way to get out of the white display is to turn the camera off or move the dial to P (program mode).

    I did a reset but no change. I think it is a problem in the dial itself.

I can take a picture but its blurry


Set your camera to auto and try again. The setting you are using determines what your picture will look like. If you want to use other settings you should know how they work so you can get what you want. Otherwise set your camera to auto. You will find this on the small dial with the different settings indicated on it. If you do this and your picture is still blurry, then when snapping your shot, press the button slightly down (not completely at first) wait a few seconds and then press it down completely to take your shot.

I am getting over expose in auto mode in my canon


An slr has a mirror that needs to flip up at the moment of exposure so you don't get anything on the screen. As for the overexposure, you need to experiment with the ISO settings, the white balance and even the exposure compensation.

Bought this product on 28/03-08 at bangalore.all snaps taken out-doors becomes too whitish and not able to see anything, the lcd screen on review shows no snap..but white over exposed result even at...


make sure your ISO setting is set to Auto. Even in auto mode its possible to set your ISO manually. If the ISO is set to auto and the pictures are still to bright, your sensor may be bad. Also make sure your exposure compensation is set to 0.

Hi i own a samsung digimax i5 when i take the snap inside


Scene too bright, or white balance not set correctly or shutter not held down halfway to get camera set for a picture. White screen means excessive brightness.

Pictures too bright


This has happened to me also. You mention that you were changing settings. The symptoms sound like your camera is in a special setting other than "Auto". Examples that would produce such results include Fireworks or Manual. Recommend trying to change your settings one more time:

1. Turn the camera on, and press the FUNC/SET button.
2. Press left or right on your circular dial switch until "Auto" is selected.
3. Press the FUNC/SET button one more time to set the camera to Automatic.

Now take a picture to see if this fixed it.

Wont take photos outside


The symptoms you're describing could be caused by either the "Fireworks" special scene selection mode, or manual mode with too much exposure compensation. Look at your mode selector (back of the camera, upper left hand corner). Is the mode set to the still image setting (pointing at the liittle red camera)? Or is it set to special scene selection (SCN)?

If you are unintentionally in SCN mode, to get it out of "Fireworks", just turn the mode selector dial to select "still image" (pointing at the little red camera). Or you can also select an SCN mode more appropriate for outdoors. Just turn the dial to SCN, press the FUNC button, then press the left/right arrow buttons to select Portrait, Beach, Snow etc...

But if your mode selector is already in still image selection, then check to make sure that you're not in "Manual" picture mode. Turn the mode selector dial to "still picture mode" (pointing at the little red camera), then press the "FUNC" button. Now look at the bottom of the screen. If it says "Manual", press the "left" button controller once to select and put the camera in "Auto" still picture mode.

Canon 20D strong blue cast to pictures


You probably have the White Balance set to a setting other a
than "Auto White Balance" (AWB). On the top of the camera, above the exterior LCD panel, there is the "AF-WB" button. Turn the camera on--past "on" to the bent line. Press the AF-WB button once. On the left side of the exterior LCD panel there is a vertical, reticular box with the symbol of the selected setting for WB. Normally, the setting should be set to AWB. If it is not, turn the command dial at the back of the camera until "AWB" is showing. Try shooting again-the color should be better.

In the "auto" modes (green box, portrait, landscape, etc) the AWB is automatically set. In the "advanced" modes (P,Tv, etc) the WB is manually set for whatever light source you are using. The command dial may have been accidently turned to different setting. Hope this helps.
