Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W170 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Viewing mode switches off by itself

Hi,

I have a cybershot DSC-W170. Recently the viewing mode goes to shooting mode by itself, especially when I flip through the foto´s (push a button, doesn´t matter which one). Something to do with a electrical connection inside of the camera?

Maybe it has something to do with that I have been taking lots of photo´s on beaches with salt air. Is there an easy way to fix this myself? I will be travelling for the next couple of months more so I cannot have it repaired.

Thanks,

Adillah.

Viewing is fine, taking pictures is not


This sounds like what started happening with my camera a few weeks ago. I found that turning the LCD screen off during picture-taking allows me to take pictures. I then have to go into review mode to look at the pictures I took using the LCD screen. Definitely not a great fix. I'm trying to locate a firmware upgrade that may solve it.
