Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-V1 Digital Camera
For last 5-6 months, it takes much longer time for the camera to react to the 'click' function. Not only it is annoying, many a times we are unable to capture the moment. Initially we thought upgrading to the 1GB card is the reason - but was not the case. Then, we thought that the battery has become old - so we replaced with new battery - which did not solve the problem either. Please advise whether there is some setting in the camera that has changed inadvertently or something else that I need to fix.
Thank you in advance.
The DSC-V1 can use a Memory Stick of up to 2GB so that's not your problem.
Rather than type out a whole step by step guide on how all the menu settings can affect the camera, it's easier to just reset the camera to the factory defaults to see if that fixes the problem.
There's a small hole about 1mm in diameter on the camera base plate, just by the battery cover hinge clearly marked "reset". There's a button inside which you'll need to press whilst the camera is turned on, use anything which fits in the hole such as a paperclip (don't use a pencil though!).
If the symptoms cease, then it was a user setting which was the cause. If not, then the camera will need disassembly to diagnose and fix but sadly it's an uneconomic repair.
Note that a reset also returns the folder and file numbering to zero as well. To avoid overwriting previously uploaded photos uploaded you'll need to go into the menu system to manually set this to your needs. if you don't know what file number you were up to then just start with a new folder instead.
