Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX300 18 Megapixel Digital Camera - Black

1 Answer

Accesing the service mode

I've made the mistake of buying a Japanese model that only has Japanese language in the user menu. Does anyone know how to access the engineering service menu to change the options? I'm guessing it's programmed that way during manufacture, rather than having different production lines for different countries.

The only way you could possibly change this, is when Sony brings out an update for this camera. It is rare for point and shoot camera's to update the firmware, but sometimes it does happen.
The bigger cameras, like DSLR and mirror less system cameras, more often get an update, because even small improvements for the professional photographer, will be made available, to keep the brand popular with the ones who are using the camera. And when the firm brings new lenses, sometimes the upgrade contains corrections for these lenses.
With an update, (when it comes available) you could put in the update, for the rest of the world. And from that point on, the camera would be like any other outside of Japan. That is, when Sony did not put in other hardware in the different versions.

Change language from japanese to english on NEX-5N


You absolutely cannot select any other language on Japanese domestic SONY models. The professional line up of camcorders come with an English selection in the menu, but not the consumer models.
Suggestions by well intentioned but ill-informed people to follow the menu in the English user guide, will not get you anywhere. The Japanese models do not include this item in the menu. Plain and simple.
Visitors to Japan should be careful when purchasing items here as they more often than not only include Japanese manuals. SONY and Panasonic also only include English menus in their cameras. Canon and Nikon do have an English selection, but this should be confirmed at the point of purchase not after returning to your country!! Furthermore, warranties are usually only valid for Japan.

Unit language


Download the driver from the site then in the help menu go to the language setup. You might have to guess your way around in this but refer to Panasonics other insturuction manuals you should know when you scroll to the english section. Also refered to as nv-gs50e or nv-gs70e. Go to http://www2.panasonic.com/consumer-electronics/support/Drivers-and-Downloads/list-75489-Camcorders#Anchor_13 it will be the third driver from the BOTTOM. This model has been discontinued so support for later windows editions are not likely. Windows 2000 is the last version you can always run your compatabilty mode with 2000 for optimum preformance.
