Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-T1 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Trouble with videos

I don't know what happened; I used to have no problem with taking short videos on the camera. Now when I do, the video ends up so fuzzy when I load it onto the computer. The other difference I am noticing is that when I review the video on the screen, it is much smaller than the full screen ... it has a blank border around the video. That never happened before. I am hoping that one of my daughters changed a setting that I can change back but I can't figure it out. I have some cute videos of my grandson crawling and they are basically useless now!! Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks.

Re: trouble with videos

Good Day, your resolution was changed to 160, thats why it has blank borders during playback, return to 640 fine or standard resolution by pressing the garbage/pail button while in video clip mode, move cursor up to 640, its up to you fine or standard, fine mode is more detailed and will eat up more memory space. hope this will help, thanks

When I take photos ,stripes appear on the screen and comes on the photos when printed.This don't happen on video.

Try resetting the camera by removing thebattery for 15 mins. Then install the fully charged battery in the camera andgo to the menu and set the Date and Time.If this does not work then this camera needs to be sent away forrepairs. Just like a motor vehicle, some repairs to your camera require atechnical specialist to fix your problem.

I don't know how long you had this problem nor when it started.
I don't know that it is a poblem, and I don't know if it can be fixed.
Too many variables: the camera, the USB plugs, the USB cable, the software, the possible interference, and so on.

Have you tried to upload the pictures and videos using a card reader?

When downloading movies to pc the file gets broken up into 3 or 4 separate files. how can i download/copy it as one file

If you do long videos with your camera this will happen automaticaly so the camera can handle the video files. I don't believe thier is a way to fix this but you can use Windows movie maker to recombine the videos into one file. If your camera does more than 640x480 video you may need
to use WinFF to convert the video or a more powerful video editor like Adobe Priemier or Sony Vegas.

I cannot record a video for longer than a few seconds what is the problem?

The camera has only 45MB internal memory. So it can take video only for a short time. You need to use extra SD cards to take longer videos.

Video camera lights

Bear in mind that what you have is primarily a still camera (that just happens to capture videos as well). It has a flash that can help illuminate the subject for still pictures, but does not have a floodlight for videos. You need external lights for that. Turn on the room lights, get floods, etc...

My digital camera is not in video mode but when i try to take an image it comes out like a mini video.

It must drive you crazy by the sound of it. It doesn't have to do with the setting or anything like that. If your warranty is still in effect i would take it to the place you bought it and see if they can fix that or replace it even. Cameras should not be doing stuff like that unless you drop it or something.

Switch the dial on the top of the camera to the picture that looks like a film square from a movie and then when you are ready to start video taping just press the button that you use to take pictures. Then when you are done taping, hit the same button again.

Mode Switch

I Have the Same Problem. it is very Annoying I find it sometimes Helps To push down on the mode button while moving it a across. I think maybe there is a plastic catch that is worn or something. I am thinking of taking it apart and having a look to see if I can fix it.
