Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-P71 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Camera turns on but will not take picture

I can turn my DSC-P71 on and make any changes to the settings I like, but when I press the button to take a picture (or video...) nothing happens. I have reset the device and attempted new batteries. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Camera turns on but will not take picture

If the lens comes out without showing an error code, and you have a live picture on the LCD, the problem is probably with the 2nd switch under the release button. It'll have to go to a repair shop.

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

How to restar the camara

look under your camera . get a thumbtack or paperclip you should see a tiny hole that should say reset. if you hold this button for a few seconds it will put all setting back to original settings. try that and let me know how it works for you. I have the dsc-p71 your models reset button maybe located somewhere else, just look for it and try this out. good luck.
