Cyber shot dsc-w1 stuck in movie mode

I let someone borrow my camera and it's been taking movies instead of photos ever since I got it back. The only way it will take a pic is if it's in twilight mode. In any other setting when I push the button to take a pic recording pops up in red on the screen. I have tried to remove the batt and tried a different memory card same thing. I do not see anywhere in the menu to change this mode. I thank you in advance for any advice I can get.

Hi!
When you rotate the mode dial, does camera change the mode? Maybe it switches only between video and twilight modes and when you set the dial to, for example, Auto mode, it's actually in Video mode? I have seen problems like this before with these cameras, mode dial had to be changed. If so, you should contact your local Sony service center and ask the price. If they ask too much, you can contact me at toms.safranovs@gmail.com and I can give you a better price.

Hope this helps!

Tom

Photo shots: the pictures look as if a super flash wash used, even when flash is not used. Movies are o.k.


Hi,
It is problem of ccd imager chip in DSC-T1 camera that gives you washed out still image after taking shot/ stored image, you may get live view correct in camera mode and movie but it saves taken still picture over bright etc.
Replace ccd imager chip by local camera repair shop to solve this issue.
Thanks.

Camera stuck in movie mode


press menu button, left or right arrow button until you come upon REC Mode. Choose option Normal. Yours is on Multiburst and that is causing your problem. Changing it to Normal should fix it.

Cybershot dsc-w50 records movies instead of pictures


I had the same problem with my camera.  I found that changing the mode from Multi Burst to Normal allows the camera to take normal pictures.  Go to Menu and scroll over to Mode, then select Normal.

Still photos (what you think of as printable photos) and movies (video clips) are completely different beasts, unfortunately. In order to extract or print individual frames within a movie, you will need some sort of movie player/editor software. Standard "photo"-oriented software won't know how to deal with video clips.

It sounds like you have the Mode switch set to the Movie position instead of the Record position. The Mode switch should be set as show on the following image:
