2. Press Menu Button
3. Go to Setup 1
4. Go to Initialize
5. Press the Right arrow (The One with the Flower on it)
6. Go to ok and press ok (on the Camera)

Now turn on the camera!

It should work

Turns off when i turn knob to take pic but i can view pics in camera wont power up in any other setting besides to play pics


Are you using regular alkaline batteries? However, it seems that the camera is drawing to much power or a crossed circuit. If it is under warranty, take it in for repair.

My cyber shot dsc w5 wont power up unless I want to view previous pics. What do I do with it?


I had exactly same issue with mine w17 and tried so many ways to fix this. Was even ready to buy some new camera instead of this Sony dsc w-17 but then found a way of resetting camera in such way: powerdown and take batteries out. Then hold "power" button for 30 seconds, release and repeat couple of times. It helped
Also if it won't work try contacting Sony online chat support - they seem to be helpful.

Can't view my pics


Hi,

You have a defective zoomunit. It must be replaced. Contact your local Sony center for repair. Or contact Rotronica in the Netherlands for replacement parts.

You need to call Sony to see if still have warranty and then if you do they will repair it for you for the cost of shipping. If not you will have to buy a new camera.
