Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W200 Digital Camera

Sony cybershot DSC W30 buttons fail

Is there a way to reset the DSC W30 without having to use the menu.
Some newer cybershots have a reset button I believe.
The menu button does not function so I cannot reset the camera via the normal menu option.
Other symptoms include not being able to play images back, some of the picture settings are unavailable and general strange behaviour.

    I took out the card and battery, left it overnight, but still no joy.

    I cant format the card or the internal memory because the menu button does not work. Nor can I delete any pictures when its attached via usb to my pc. "The media is write protected"

    Looks like I'll have to take it to Sony.

    Thanks for your help.

Take the battery out and let the camera sit for an hour or two, take out the memory card, try to view photos on computer, if it does not work, you will have to format the card and start over. Some times when the format on the card is bad, the camera will not work properly. I have two cybershots myself.

Try to reset the camera to original settings:
How to reset a Cyber-shot® digital still camera back to original factory settings. Solution
sp.gif sp.gif Cyber-shot cameras nowadays have a built-in rechargeable battery for retaining time, date, and other settings. Since the built-in rechargeable battery is not removable, current Cyber-shot camera models can only be returned to the original factory settings by pressing a small RESET button on the camera or by using an Initialize option in the menu.
Older-model Cyber-shot cameras (prior to the year 2000) do not have a built-in rechargeable battery and do not have a RESET button or Initialize option in the menu. These cameras require a manual power reset.
IMPORTANT: To determine whether or not your camera has a RESET button or Initialize option, or for other model-specific information to complete any of the steps in this solution, refer to the operating instructions supplied with the product. Manuals are available online in the Manuals/Specs/Warranty section of the Sony® eSupport Web site.
Follow the appropriate procedure below for your camera.
Using an Initialize option in the menu
Since Cyber-shot cameras have different menu system layouts, refer to the instruction manual specific for your camera model.
Using a RESET button
  1. Locate the RESET button on the camera.
  2. Use a pointed object (like a ballpoint pen) to press and hold the RESET button for 2-3 seconds.
  3. After 2-3 seconds has elapsed, release the RESET button.
Performing a manual power reset
  1. Turn off the camera.
  2. Remove the battery pack.
  3. Remove the button-sized lithium battery.
  4. Allow the camera to remain without power for 30 seconds.
  5. Reinsert the button-sized lithium battery.
  6. Reinsert the battery pack.
  7. Turn on the camera.

Cybershot DSC-W30


Check the manual- it may be in the menu or a separate button. When you are sure it is switched on put the camera to your ear and listen for the flash charging up[a High whistle sound] If it does not come on or the ready light does not show - then assume it has failed. Contact Sony customer support for further advice
