Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W70 Digital Camera

2 Answers

Camara won't take pictures, screen shots look black and white blurry

Everytime I take pictures with my dscw70, the pictures will not show. A blurry screen shot with black and white lines will come out (the images are black and white usually lines or circles, very blurry). I cant take any pictures. However, in video mode the camera records very well. I do not know what the problem is, let me know if this can be solve manually.

How do I change the settings to take pictures in Black & White? Thank you

From the shooting menu, select "Color." You can select "B&W" for black-and-white, or "Sepia" for the old-fashioned brownish look. For full details look in the manual under "Shooting menu." It's on page 32 of the online version of the manual available on the manufacturer's web site at

Cannot see what im shooting and on lcd screen,no picture jus black. It shows numbers timer everything else except picture. In play mode everything works fine.

I have 2 xelim camaras. One of which has a piece of some type of cover partially obstructing the view. This camara still displays the time and menus and older pictures. If I take pix now the picture is obscured. The other camara has no picture on the display but when I take a picture it turns out just fine. That camara will need disassembled and a connector hooked back up

Most screens on digital camaras are for aiming the camara and output (displaying the picture) therefore any problems with the screen do not translate to a picture.

I Havee The Same Problem And Ive Been Reading Around And The Most Decent Answer I Found About What Was Wrong Was That Something Had Just Come Loose Inside So That Might Help Because Something Wiring Upo To The Screen Might Be Loose Its Worth A Shot.

Pictures too white and blurry

If the photo shoot out show white , the obscure (quality variation), and even horizontal line ( white lines), and so on over-exposure cases, even if the use of anti-tremor, set to default values are invalid, because the camera shutter fault.

It's need repair camera machine shutter.
