Re: stuck on standby
The sliding button above the LCD display has three settings. You need to slide the button to the right, A camera icon for taking pictures, a movie camera in the middle and the green arrow on the left to view pictures and movies taken

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 firstname.lastname@example.org and I can give you a better price.
It appears that the software crashed. Take the batteries and the memory card out, press the on/off button as if you are turning the camera on (this is to drain any residual power in the camera). Leave it for a few moments (10-20 seconds) then put the batteries and the card back in and restart the camera. If the camera has a reset button or reset hole try this too. Good luck.
The ribbon cable for the top switches has come loose.Undo the four screws holding the LCD screen (two are special--I used the corner of a small flat screwdiver), then gently prise the camera apart and try not to dissconnect the ribbon cable for the menu buttons --it's a pain to get back on again. Gently ease the ribbon cable for the top switches further into the socket and all shout be well---if it is hard to move flip open the black locking flap on the socket
It's a small world. I have an Ixus V2 on the bench with exactly the same problem.
The sliding button on the camera mates with a switch soldered to a flat ribbon cable inside the camera. There are two small teeth which move the internal switch left ot right. What's happened is one of those plastic teeth has snapped off the external part and now it can't push the switch anywhere. If you pulled the camera apart you could push the switch into either record or review but that's it. It will stay in either of those positions. Which is a bummer. The only way to fix it is to buy the complete flat cable ribbon with switch attached and boy it's a long cable.
Except for sending it away for repairs (expensive) buy a damaged one on Ebay and do a transplant. Just make sure it's suffering the same fault.
NO, the battry cannot have make this occur!!
its sound like the memory card is retired!
borrow 1 from anybody just to see if it works
and then buy a new 1
