How do i get phone to change from video mode to photo mode?


Nigel,

After you start the camera, please go into Options and select the Icon for a still camera. The phone will switch over to the still camera mode. Again, to switch back to the video mode, select the icon of a video camera.

All the best.

Screen and view finder not showing anything


Just covering the bases...
Make sure the lens cap is removed
Turn the ON/OFF switch to Favorite mode
Press EVF/LCD does it toggle
Look to see if the battery level ICON shows better then half
Battery combination sometimes will show a strong icon level
It may be strong in the other modes which draws less power then the picture taking mode.
My guess would be New Battery replacement.
Some tests were done that may be of value to your solution

Horizontal purple bar on LCD in camera mode. Have changed batteries. Used different batteries. Different memory cards. LCD works normal except in camera mode. When shutter is pressed purple bar shows on...


When you change the mode to camera, the sensor of the camera begins to work. Unfortunately your sensor is dead from now on. This kind of sensor, I mean point and shoot camera sensors always do that. There is nothing to do. The sensor life and the quality of this kind of cameras have unfortunately limited life. So, You should go on to use it under the conditions that do not have high contrast and high light or you should change your sensor. This kind of changing is not economic. So it is better to change your camera. This is not a good news, I know but the reality is this. Do not stop your smile and change your camera.

LCD Display Blank


I have a sony cybershot DSC-S650, the LCD was very dark and could not see anything except if I pointed it at a bright object, everything else worked ok. I could take pictures but could barely see them in playback as well.

I took it to Sony authorised repair outlet and was told the CCD was damaged, they charged me USD $55 to repair it (in Quito, Ecuador)

How tu use video recording..


Hi,

The picture that I posted shows a TZ3 mode dial. I added a blue arrow to point out an icon on the mode dial.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1. Turn the mode dial on the camera so this icon is selected.
2. Switch on the camera.
3. Aim the camera at your subject, press the shutter button halfway to focus, then press it fully to begin the video. (Just as you would take a picture.)
4. To stop taking video, press the shutter button fully again.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

~When a video starts being taken, its current length will appear on the camera's LCD screen.
~Videos take up more space on the memory card than do pictures.
~If an SD memory card becomes full while recording, then the video will stop automatically.
~Videos can be played back on the camera's "PLAYBACK" mode. They can also be viewed on a TV or downloaded to a computer.

Flashing red icon


It must be the internal battery problem. Change the button cell that is located near the charging input jack.
