Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W30 Digital Camera

2 Answers

Zoom sticking When I try to zoom in on something the dial for the zoom sticks and I can't stop if from zooming in until it hits the maximum. I'm thinking that it just needs to be cleaned and I was hoping someone could suggest a cleaning product that won't damage my camera.

Take a piece of very lightly waxed, thin floss and run it gently under the rotating switch, all the way around it. I worked on mine!

I don't think any "cleaning products" will help or be a good idea. If you can use a brush or a sliver of paper (NOT tissue!) and work around the button, that may dislodge anything rubbing or stuck against it. Perhaps only disassembling will allow it to be cleaned properly. If you've spilled Coke or the like on it then that is very sticky (sugar) and it would need to come apart.

How do I enable samsung tl105's digital zoom?


From the manual:

Optical zoom TELE : Push the Zoom W/T lever to the right to
enlarge the subject.
Digital zoom TELE : Push the Zoom W/T lever to the right again
in optical 4x zoom mode to enable digital
zoom (software tele). Release the Zoom
W/T lever to stop digital zoom (tele). When
the 5X digital zoom reaches its maximum
magnifi cation, it will not enlarge the image
further, even if you push the Zoom W/T
lever.

Cant use f/3.5


You will only be able to use the f3.5 aperture setting when the lens is zoomed out to the 18mm setting. As you zoom in, the maximum aperture available will decrease until you reach the 55mm setting where the maximum aperture will be f5.6.

Check to see if you can obtain f3.5 with the lens zoomed fully out. If not, it sounds as if the aperture blades could be sticking, in which case it will need to be professionally repaired.

Hope this helps!

Keys must be pressed repeatedly, mouse is jerky, websites zoom max.


Try reinstalling the software and get back to me. Also make sure there is no source of interference, like a strong electromagnetic field nearby (speakers,etc).

  • images become coarser the more they are digitally zoomed.
