Re: Camera won't turn on ...just there is red lamp is...

Here is the link to the user manual for your camera if you need it; The red lamp, if it is flashing/blinking indicates that the self-timer function is on - check page 15 for how to turn it off. If the light is steadily on, and it is the battery/power status light, then the indication is that the battery is faulty or not charged - possibly the fault is with the charger, but more likely a new battery will solve the problem. To get a new battery, go to; and they should tell you where you can get one, if no luck with them, please post back with which part of Egypt you are in, and i can try to find you a dealer locally. Hope this helps :)

Why is red light blinking

The red lamp you are referring to is called the Access Lamp. This lamp usually illuminates if the camera is reading or writing information to the memory card. If this is blinking erratically, this could indicate an issue with the memory card. It is recommended that you try using another memory card with the camera to isolate the issue

There is a red exclamation point on the camera screen that won't go away. What is the problem?

Just got one of these cameras from a charity shop and after only a short use same problem.
Try connecting camera to PC as an external drive and delete (all) files..... This, too, may not work, in which case reformat the whole drive representing the camera - quick format will probably do.
Once you take a photo the directory path: DCIM/100IMAGE will be recreated.
I'd recommend reformatting quite regularly - after each time you download the photos off the camera.

Sit the camera in sunlight for few hours until its get warm and make sure the battery and memory card out and the doors must be open . After that insert the battery only and try to turn on and see the result.

Sony Cybershot DSC-W180 won't turn on when plugged into computer.

Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

A red lightning arrow keeps flashing on the screen and the camera isn't doin anything,what can the problem be?


A red flashing lightening bolt can mean different things on different camera's. The most common are that you are too far away from the object you want to take a picture of. That the flash on the camera needs to be turned off and that the flash itself is charging up and won't allow a picture to be taken.

Try turning the flash off and see if it will let you take a picture.

When i try to turn my camera on it flashes a small red light and then it won't turn on, how do i fix this?


The Red indicator flashing in the Camera may be the Access Lamp or the Power Lamp. The Access Lamp is located below the Control buttons and the Power Lamp near to the power button. If the Access Lamp is flashing, it indicates that the Camera is accessing the Memory. Do not remove the Memory Stick or Batter while the Access Lamp is lit.

If the Power Lamp is flashing, it indicates that the Camera is turned on. If the Lamp is lit in Red it shows that the Battery is not having enough charge. Insert new batteries or charged Nickel-Metal Hydride batteries to resolve the issue.

You may also try power resetting the Camera. To power reset the Camera, remove the batteries from the Camera and then press and hold the POWER BUTTON of the Camera for 15 seconds and then reinsert the batteries after 1 minute and check if the Camera works normally. If the issue persists, service may be required.

Can't turn the flash off

Hi The product you have given has Built-in flash with Auto, Forced on, Red-eye on, and forced off (Red-eye reduction On or Off).
There is a 1 1/8" diameter lens with a built-in lens cover that automatically opens and closes when the on/off button is pressed. Above the lens is the viewfinder window, flash and tiny (almost unnoticeable) microphone. There is also a small circle that has three functions: the autofocus assist beam, red-eye reduction lamp, self-timer lamp. A wrist strap comes with the camera and attaches through a slot on the front of the camera near the side.
To the right of those buttons is the four-way controller, used for menu navigation as well as:
  • Up - Metering (Evaluative, center-weighted, spot)
  • Down - Drive (Single-shot, continuous, self-timer)
  • Left - Focus (Auto, macro, infinity)
  • Right - Flash (Auto w/redeye reduction, auto, flash on w/redeye reduction, flash on, flash off)
