DSC-T7 Locked up "USB Mode Normal" Second user with exact same problem!

I have the same problem exactly as posted (included below)by jogairan on 5 March 2007. I was just double checking if anyone has a possible solution, since this problem is not unique and maybe someone has found a workaround. Thanks in advance, Kapinossa Hello, I hope someone here can help me. I am going crazy!! My DSC-T7 was working find and all of a sundden in the middle of taking a bunch of pictures it started to go back and forth between the normal picture taking screen and "USB Mode Normal" screen. I tried to turn it off and on a bunch of times and it is now worse! at the moment: when I turn it on, it showes the battery power on the left top corner, mid top it will say "USB Mode Normal" under that there are four white dots and at the bottom it says: "Switch on MENU". If I press the menu botton, everything stays the same except the lower left corner, inside a yello box will say: "USB Connect". pressing menue will toggle between these two screens. non of the other bottons do anything. I took the mem stick out and turned it on still the same. I took the battery out and put it back in with the same results. has anyone run into this? can anyone help? Please and thank you.

    Thanks. That's not impossible on my end. It could be moisture. I will see if the battery reset method below works first, then I will try drying methods.

I you remove the battery and press the power button for 30seconds, after wait 30minutes and reinsert the battery again in the video position you will get access to the camera for a minutes, you have to go to the menu and reinicialice the camera. If this don´t work you have to go to the technical service. There is no hard reset button or firmware upgrade to solve the problem by yourself. (this is what the online technical support has told me)

Can you find a reset switch? look for a tiny access hole to insert a pin...possibly under battery.

6. For Two S-1-5..... folders (SID key) with the same Number -

Problem .


If you open the part that gives you access to the battery and the memory stick you'll see a small button that says 'reset'. I'm actually not sure what it resets, but you could give that a try.

DSC-T7 Locked up "USB Mode Normal"


I am a user with the exact same problem as you desribed for my DSC-T7. My problem started when I splashed two drops of water need the battery door and then the camera would not power up. I removed battery and card for a day and camera worked fine for another day. The following day, I left my camera in my sun visor of my car for the day (>90 deg F outside) which I forgot that I put it there. The next day my camera did power up in the locked mode exactly as yours. I do not know if it was the water drops or the heat but it is doing exactly as you desribe. However, here is something that I have discovered while trying to get the camera to work: 1. I plugged the adapter into the side of the camera since I am concerned that the USB port is the issue. 2. I plugged the USB cable into my portable printer and powerer the printer up and then turned on the camera in all three modes to see if anything changed and it did not. 3. I have found if you turn off the printer with the USB cable still in the printer and the adapter, the camera then enters a mode that shows thw word "ACCESS" and then the camera works perfectly. All modes of the camera work fine. But as soon as you power up the printer or remove any of the cables or remove the adapter the camera reenters the locked mode. This is not a solution but an indicator that the USB port is possibly causing the problem but not sure why the printer being off causes the camera to work fine. In addition, have all of the cables hooked up and to the printer does not allow the camera to be used with any mobility but wanted to let you know what I have discovered and hopefully maybe this may lead to a potential solution.

DSC-T7 Magnify Mode


Hello, Don't mix magnifier mode and expanded focus mode. Magnifier mode is simply a short AF range operating mode, like a kinda super-macro. Whether you selected mag/macro/normal, the camera operates always same except that the focussing range limits are changed accordingly by the S/W. The lens itself is capable of focussing from 1cm to infinity anyway. Expanded focus is used on some still and video cameras to assit manual focus because the LCD's resolution is lower than the CCD's. It can be seen as a workaround for the lack of optical reflex viewfinder (Sony cams ar not dSLRs, including HDR-FX1!). So the center area of the pic is "digitally zoomed" to make sure you can adjust a sharp focus of the point of interest in your frame. However it has nothing to do with macro shooting, and works at any distance within the lenses focussing range. Hope having helped
