How to switch from video to pictures


Push the mode button (the front button) until you see the single camera. It sequences through the whole series before starting over. The video mode is first, the camera is second. If may be different if you've set a different default mode, just keep hitting the mode button until you see the single camera.

Try hitting the display button(the small TV resembling icon in the bottom right of the camera). You may have accidentally pressed it while using your camera and caused it to turn off your display.

My sony handycam dcr-hc21 will not allow me to go into play mode. I can turn the power on and off, but I cannot rotate the power button up to make the camcorder go into play mode.


This does seem to be a broken switch that you use for play mode, I have one on my camera, it may be the tag broken off that hit the switch.

Canon powershot A520 doesn't work in camera mode. I can look at and edit pictures in viewing mode, but switching to "camera" won't let me take pictures... in this mode it also lets me view pictures already...


Hi!
Do other buttons work? If so, the switch could be broken because it sounds it doesn't switch to the CAMERA mode, just stays at the VIEW mode.
If you're not experienced in repairs, you should give it to a local repair shop or Canon service center.

Sorry for the bad news. I repair these cameras very often.

When in Camera mode I focus and then prepare to take the picture but the as soon as I press the switch to take the picture the LG routinely switches from Camera mode to the Video mode. Why? I cant see


Well, this is the intended function of the button unfortunately.

If you press and hold down the camera button, it toggles between camera and video.
However I'm sure you have noticed that on occasion, if you don't hold the button down long enough, no picture is taken.

It turns out to be something you just have to get used to. There is like a 2 second delay on the toggle so just don't hold it down that long. It is hard to get used to if you are used to a red eye removable flash or a slow camera button as found on many new cameras.

Here is a tip though, after you take the picture to quickly take another picture, you can fast save the photo by pressing the camera button again instead of messing with the touch screen.

DSC-W55 Disrupted modes.


YOUR MODE SWITCH IS SET TO VIDEO AND WHAT YOU ARE TAKING ARE ACTUALLY SHORT VIDEO CLIPS, INSTEAD OF PICTURES! IF YOU WANT TO TAKE PHOTOGRAPHS YOU NEED TO RESET THE MODE SWITCH TO A SETTING OTHER THAN VIDEO. SOMETHING LIKE SCENERY, FLOWERS,PEOPLE, ETC. YOU SHOULD SEE THESE ON THE MODE SWITCH, YOU MAY ALSO GO ONLINE TO SONY DSC-W50 AND VIEW THE USER MANUAL AND STUDY THE DIFFERENT MODES OF PHOTOS.

CAMERA TURNS OFF WHEN IN PICTURE OR VIDEO MODE


Does the camera turn off or does the screen go black? if the screen goes black but the power lamp stays green then the screen is just turned off (power save mode), If it’s just the screen to turn on the LCD. There are 3 buttons just to the right of the screen, press the center button.
