Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W55 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Won't let me take pictures

I have had my sony DSC-W55 for a little over a year now and it has been awesome! just last week I was taking pictures, and then suddenly, I went to go take another and the "vibration warning" came on and wouldn't let me take a pic. I reset my camera, and now it beeps twice, the two little lights by the playback button come on- one is green and one is yellow. The focus frame turns green and a green dot appears at the top of the screen. and of course- it takes no picture. I didn't drop it or anything, just randomly started doing it.

I tried the sony online tech support, and they didn't know- just offered the info for me to go and get it repaired. the cost----- $91.00. I'm trying to fix it myself, or find out how, before I have to send it in. Help!

I dont recommend it...
if you are not experienced with repairs then don't try-it usually ends up making it worse!

Camera won't print timestamp on pictures sony dsc-w55


The date and time (and a lot more) are stored with every picture in its EXIF metadata. Any photo viewing/editing program should be able to display this data. To print this data, please consult the documentation for whatever program you're using to print your pictures. Depending on the program and printer you may print the date on the image, in the margins, or on the back.

My Sony cybershot dsc-w55 won't take pictures! I


Your lens is stuck due to either being banged or bumped or there is dirt/grit inside the lens gears. The lens needs to be replaced, but buying a brand new lens is out of the question. Sony will charge $125 just for the lens assembly, it's crazy.

A refurb lens can be installed for about $75 including return shipping. You should check the replacement cost of a used camera and see which is cheaper in the long run.

Hope this helps!

Wy wife and I shake a little when taking pictures and our shots are fuzzy most of the time. what can we do to improve our pictures with this SONY DSC-W55 camera?


you need to increase your shutter speed. your instruction manual should tell you how to do it. if you don't use flash normally try using it with your pictures. If you can adjust the ISO setting to a higher number as well. Some digitals will let you and others wont.

Go to your pictures click menu and then you'll see a little key symbol and and above it it should say unprotect if not than go to the individual picture than is protected and click the key symbol and it should say unprotect/

Sony dsc-w55 fell and the lens is stuck


Use bit more force to push or pull the lens as lens has been damaged. If applying bit more force lens goes to working, u saved $$$ otherwise, new lens option is always available at Sony repair shops.

Unable to take pictures


I had the same problem, I returned it to where I bought it and they replaced the camera with a new one, however it was only 5 weeks old when this happened.
