Received new I-40 model 2 days ago. Camera takes great day shots but night time photos are solid black. Checked IR setting and made sure default was set for IR to work. Still get solid black night shots and an error code of 020000. Any idea what is wrong?

Did you accidentally switch the the camera to manual mode or to night shots. (night portrait) in scene?
Just chose the little camera logo on the mode dial and try again. If you still have problems I hope to hear from you.
Set ISO Setting to FIXED RANGE and set the range to 80-400. The camera produces noise at HIGH ISO setting. NIGHT SHOTS
Get a small Tripod and you can take wonderful night time shots of city-scapes. Use a tripod and set the camera White Balance to Incandes. Make sure the FLASH is Off Set the Exposure Comp. to -2. Set the self timer and then frame and press the shutter and back away. Some exposures can be 1 second long so a tripod is not optional. Small plastic Joby ones work. If you are holding the camera during the shot it will move with you. A self timer is used to take the photo after you are not touching it.
When you use the flash set the White Balance to Flash (Unless you are outside on a sunny day. then use daylight)
I do NOT recommend using Auto Flash. Set the flash to OFF or turn it to SINGLE BOLT for fill.
When you want to photograph people outside in the sun set the White Balance to Daylight. On sunny days use the Fill Flash (Single Bolt) to fill faces better. Yes good photographers use flash in the direct sun. When cloudy are in shade turn flash off. If the subject has a bright background get close to them and have the flash on.
This camera makes red eye. In most cases when you are taking a photo of people in low light, when the flash supplies most of the light, you will get horrible red eye. You have to edit these later to remove the red eye.
Please follow the instructions given below 1. Turn OFF cam 2. Remove the battery or the power supply 3. Turn the switch to CAMERA for about 30 sec 4. Turn the switch to OFF 5. Install the battery or power supply 6. Turn the switch to MEMORY 7. Open the LCD cover and press the RESET button ( small inner button ) 8. You will be prompt to adjust date/time. Do it 9. Take some pictures
Second step: 1)at setup do a initialize. 2)go to flash function to turn off the flash (must do it fast,b4 the E91:01 appear,if not you need to reset it again ) by
now E91:01 will never appear.you can use it like normal,be sure not to
turn on your flash again or go to night mode.if not you need to perform
step 1 & 2 again.
I had a similar problem with my Cyber-shot S600. It just turned off every time I tried to take a photo. I bought a Sony recharger + batteries and it fixed the problem. Camera works fine and I'm impressed with the how long the batteries last between charges.
Did you use flash? Did you use tripod? Generally speaking night photos with non-DSLR digital camera, W55 is non-DSLR, will be blurry unless either flash is used or a tripod is used. The issue is the camera shutter is set for a long exposure in order to get enough light that it is impossible to hold the camera steady. The color problem you mentioned is most likely your white balance. Normal white balance is sunlight at night you white balance should be Auto, Incandescent or Neon
The first thing you need to determine....
Is it your or the camera?
You need to take a series of shots with your camera sitting on a tripod.
If you do not have a tripod, sit the camera on a solid surface.
Camera movement is the number one cause of blurred photos.
A few tips:
When you punch down the shutter button ... that can move the camera just as the picture is taken.
Dont ''punch'' down the shutter button.
Hold the camera in such a manner that you are squeezing the shutter button between your forefinger and thumb.
When you are using the LCD to frame the shot, you have your arms extended in front of you. This invites camera movement.
Instead, use the viewfinder and make sure that the camera is pressed against your face.
Your head is steadier that two outstreatched arms.
For added stability, lean your shoulder against a pole, tree, building, or other solid object.
When taking flash pictures remember, that flash only covers so much area.
The CX7530 is rated for 11.8 feet if you are not using optical zoom.
It is rated for only 6.9 feet if you are using optical zoom.
If your subject(s) are beyond those distances, you will get a dark photo.
When shooting in dim light and not using flash, the camera will select a slow shutter speed.
You must use a tripod or sit the camera on a solid surface.
