Try resetting the camera. Take the batteries out for about five minutes and then re-insert them.

Hi Jim,
Have you tried resetting all settings on the camera? On a Sony camera, it is called "initialize". The initialize setting is found by going to the menu, and tabbing down until you find an option called either "reset settings" or "initialize settings" and then confirm it.
Many times that will fix the issue, in case something has either been enabled/disabled on accident, or the software is sticking (which happens from time to time)

Cyber shot dsc-w1 stuck in movie mode

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 and I can give you a better price.

Hope this helps!

Using my memory card, i check my photos display with out date & time.

You will find a setting that will date/time stamp the actual image when it's taken. Please take a look in your manual. Most cameras have this feature.

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.

Sony cyber shot DSC-H3 flash

The same problem just appeared to us. We decided that it is a software bug and we reset the camera with the following combination:
Home ->Settings(the toolbox) -> Main Settings 1 -> Initialize.

This fixed the problem.

Have in mind that all your settings will be lost (but not the pictures).
