How To Change My Sony Camera Model Number NEX-3N

When the camera was bought in Japan, and never had the English language before, there is little chance you can change the language at all. Sony does make cameras, special for their inland market, and you can't change the language on those camera's

Dsc-tx9 japanese language only

Pretty sure you should be able to put in some new firmware, but I can't find any hint. Not in the manual, not with Sony.
Perhaps you should register the camera, and contact Sony with the question how to change the firmware so you have multi language. Just tell them you got the camera as a present from your friends (associate or what ever) from Japan but you can't work with the language.

Change language from japanese to english on NEX-5N

You absolutely cannot select any other language on Japanese domestic SONY models. The professional line up of camcorders come with an English selection in the menu, but not the consumer models.
Suggestions by well intentioned but ill-informed people to follow the menu in the English user guide, will not get you anywhere. The Japanese models do not include this item in the menu. Plain and simple.
Visitors to Japan should be careful when purchasing items here as they more often than not only include Japanese manuals. SONY and Panasonic also only include English menus in their cameras. Canon and Nikon do have an English selection, but this should be confirmed at the point of purchase not after returning to your country!! Furthermore, warranties are usually only valid for Japan.

Need to get back to english

Researched this extensively. you cannot change the camera to english. sony camera's bought in japan (or from the internet from japanese suppliers are not multi language. they supply a japanese version and an international version. the japanese version is cheaper (nationalistic thing). there is no firmware either to upgrade it. best thing to do is download the manual and become familiar with it.

Can change the language of mycamera?becouse ill bought it in japan and all of the sudden i did nt notice that the language is japanese is this problem can be solve pls help me.

Hey reynante,
You should be able to change the language back to English under the settings menu which starts on page 62 of your camera manual and the language setting manual is designated by a letter A inside of a box as shown on page 69 of your camera manual. I have included a link to a PDF download of your camera manual in case you need it. I hope this helps!
