Can't turn off nightshot on my handycam help!!!

Option 1:

Using the NightShot:

1. First Set the POWER Switch to Camera, Slide NIGHTSHOT to ON.

2. The NIGHTSHOT indicators flash on the screen.

3. To cancel the NightShot mode, Slide NIGHTSHOT to OFF.

Option 2:

1. Let us try to reset the Camcorder and check if it helps to resolve the issue.

2. Locate the RESET button behind the LCD screen of the Camcorder.

3. The Camcorder should be switched ON when you reset the unit. Press the RESET button using a sharp-pointed object.

NOTE: Resetting the Camcorder will reset the settings of the Camcorder to the factory settings including date and time. It will not delete any data saved in the Camcorder.

Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Bose 321 remote control not working

You can test a remote control using these methods:-

Method 1 - If you have AM, Medium Wave radio then set the tuning off a channel and press the remote control buttons. If there is a change in sound, higher and/or lower tones the remote is working.
If not check the batteries are charged and fitted correctly.

Method 2 - If you have a digital camera with nightshot, wait until it's dark turn off the lights and turn the camera to nightshot. Aim it at the remote in the dark and focus then press the butoons. Look at the led light is there any change/flashing on the end of the led.

This will confirm it is the remote control and a replacement is required, or batteries need changing

Sony DCR-HC51

This is the solution, I would only add that it's on the top of the camera itself. Not in the digital menu or backlight button. On my older version, it's between the cassette and lens sections of the camera. 
Never having used the nightshot before, my sister left me with the same quandary...

DSC-F717 - "stucked" in nightshot mode

Yes you are right, it is more than likely the nightshot button that has shorted.

This is button is part of what we call the Switch control Block.

Phone your local Sony service Centre and ask them how much it would cost to replace the switch control block. My estimate is about a 1/5 of the original cast you paid for the camera.

Good luck.
