Sony DSC-W80 Problems - Camera not used much

My Sony, DSC-W80 has no image when on. I got the camera last Christmas and it hasn't been used much. It started with a problem where the zoom l;ens would go in and out several times and then flash a message to shut down and re-start (something like that). I just turned it on to write this message and now it has no image displayed.

Any ideas?

FROM WHAT I CAN FIND ON THE SONY WEBSITE AND OTHER SITES, THIS MODEL HAS MANY STRANGE PROBLEMS AND MANY ERROR CODES. YOU MIGHT TRY THE " RESET " THEY LIST TO REMOVE THE BATTERY, HIT THE ON SWITCH FOR 5-10 SECONDS THEN REINSTALL THE BATTERY AND POWER UP THE CAMERA AGAIN AND SEE IF THIS CLEARS THE ERROR. YOU HAVE TO ADMIT THAT YOUR CAMERA HAS DONE SOME VERY INTERESTING THINGS IN THE PAST. I WOULD HAVE SENT IT IN FOR SERVICE WHILE IT WAS UNDER WARRANTY. IT IS SHOWING SOME SIGNS OF REAL PROBLEMS AND IT MAY HAVE TO BE SENT IN FOR SERVICE. BUT, PLEASE TRY THE RESET TO SEE IF THIS WILL WORK. I HOPE IT WILL SOLVE THE PROBLEM. PLEASE REPLY TO:ARCLIGHT1217

How do I put my camera online


Use the free software called Picasa. It has an easy import function. Once you cable your camera to the computer, turn it on to the photo view mode. Or put your camera's memory card into the computer's card slot while Picasa is open and look for the 'import' tab.

Sony DSC-P3 Zoom stopped working


i had that same problem. check your image size, the camera cant zoom if the image size is set to 3.1M or 2.8M(3:2)

how to change image size:
turn on camera and leave it in camera mode (picture taking mode)
press the delete/image button
change image size until camera zooms again
VGA gives the biggest zoom range

i hope this helps
it worked on my camera

DSC-W80 zoom extends, shutter opens, closes, zoom closes, 5x, won't work


Hey kbcinc,
I would try taking the battery out and waiting a minute and then reinserting the battery. Another option you have is to try and reinitialize the camera, but you would need access to the settings menu on the camera and it doesen't sound like you do. To initialize the camera go to main settings 1 and choose initialize. If this doesn't work I would bring it to an authorized service center to have it looked at.

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.
