    My camera rarely even turns on. When it does turn on, I can take 1 picture and then the view screen starts going crazy. The display options turn on and off. It does that for about 10 seconds and then all of a sudden the screen turns white and then the camera turns off. I have tried a different battery and it wasn't the problem. My memory stick is fine. I'm not sure what would cause this. I haven't put it in any water nor have I dropped it.

It may be as simple as a dirty lens. If your lens is dirty it will act like it is out of focus and give you those messages. If it isn't that you want to repair it yourself. There is a guy in South Carolina who has lots of parts for all the Sony Cameras. I bought my LCD from him for $39.00 plus shipping and it works perfect. I put it in myself and saved a ton. If you buy the part from him he sends you pictures of him taking the camera apart so that you can repeat the process when you install it. I think his email is

Sony Cyber-shot DSC- W55 takes blurry pictures

The focus doesn't move as it should - it was stuck before you tapped it. Could be sand or something in it. I'm afraid you will have to give it away for a repair. You can contact your local Sony service center, but if they ask too much, I can offer you a very good price. My e-mail is
I work in a Sony service center.

Hope this helps!

DSC-W55 movie camera video display problem

Your quality setting is probably set to the E-Mail quality. This makes the video low quality and tiny.

Just press the button that you use to delete pictures with the regular screen on and change the image quality.
