HI! FROM WHAT I HAVE BEEN ABLE TO LEARN ABOUT THIS PROBLEM, FROM OTHER OWNERS, IT SEEMS THAT IT IS POSSIBLE TO DUE WITH A FIRMWARE CHANGE. I WOULD IMAGINE THAT YOU WILL HAVE TO GO TO THE SONY WEBSITE TO LOCATE THE FIRMWARE FOR YOUR CAMERA. ALSO IT SEEMED TO ME THEY WERE LISTING THIS CAMERA AS DISCONTINUED? NOT SURE ON THIS BUT FOUND IT ON ONE FORUM SITE I CHECKED. READING NUMEROUS POSTS SUGGESTED THAT CHANGES WERE POSSIBLE THROUGH FIRMWARE. HOPE THIS HELPS YOU START IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION. IF YOU NEED MORE HELP JUST REPLY TO:

Pretty sure you should be able to put in some new firmware, but I can't find any hint. Not in the manual, not with Sony.
Perhaps you should register the camera, and contact Sony with the question how to change the firmware so you have multi language. Just tell them you got the camera as a present from your friends (associate or what ever) from Japan but you can't work with the language.

LANGUAGE SETTING JAPANESE TO ENGLISH


Hello analyn
There may be a simple fix to this problem.
Find a friend that has a cybershot of the same model as your own. In their camera, open the menu and navigate to the language setting. While you do this count how many times you press the button. Example:
Menu
-camera settings 1
-program 2
-personal settings 3 press ok

personal settings
-storage type 1
-date and time 2
-language 3 press ok

language
-spanish 1
-english 2 press ok
-japanese




Although the language is different, the number of spaces should be the same, so even though you can't read it to change the language, you should be able to count it out. Or if you are lucky you may have a Japanese friend who can read it.





Hope this helps

Can change the language of mycamera?becouse ill bought it in japan and all of the sudden i did nt notice that the language is japanese is this problem can be solve pls help me.


Hey reynante,
You should be able to change the language back to English under the settings menu which starts on page 62 of your camera manual and the language setting manual is designated by a letter A inside of a box as shown on page 69 of your camera manual. I have included a link to a PDF download of your camera manual in case you need it. I hope this helps!
