Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W170 Digital Camera

1 Answer

After a slight knock Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W170 problems

After a little knock (its been dropped a while ago and had no problems) we tried to turn it on, and the lens keeps going in and out as if its turning itself on and off, and once its done this a few times it stays out, and a message on the screen asks us to turn the power on and off. We can access the stored photos but it won't let us take any more, whatever setting its on. I really need this fixed in two weeks as got an important event to take photos at... Help? I've tried holding onto the lens and twisting it slightly, but it still won't do it.

    cant get into the menu to initialize because of message 'switch your camera off and remove the power source and refit after 1 minute' its effectively frozen at this point. Have done all what is asked with no result.

I have sony dsc-w170 how can i use it as web cam on my laptop


Unfortunately you can't. The DSC-W170 is designed to store images (and videos) to memory, not to stream live video to another device.

Sorry that wasn't the answer you wanted to see, but there it is.

I have a sony DSC-W170. It was dropped and now


I had exactly the same problem with my Sony Cyber_Shot. Here is what I did and the problem was fixed. I cleaned around the lense. While I turned the camera off, I pressed down the lense very softly (some up and down motion). After a couple of times, the lense retracted almost completely. Then I pressed a little harder until the lense retracted 100% as normal times. I turned it on everything was back to normal. If the lense does not have mechanical problem, you should be able to do what I did.
If there is no mechanical problem, most likly some dirt got on the sides of the lense while it was open. Try keep it very clean always.

Good luck;

I lost software CD Sony dsc w-170


This camera does not need software to transfer images or music, try the method listed at Sony website, if that does not work , there may be something wrong with the Operative System.

Sony DSC-W170


Your Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-W170 came with a cord that had a little flat plug on one end and three separate plugs on the other end.  The single plug goes into the bottom of your camera.  The end that has three plugs has

(1) USB
(2) video output
(3) audio output

(2 and 3 are for hooking up to your TV)

If you connect the USB end to your PC and the single, flat plug into your camera, this acts as the USB cable.  There is no USB plug on the camera (for just a USB cord).
