Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-H1 Digital Camera

I can't zoom with my DSC-H1

Hello, I bought my camera on line so no warranty. The camera takes beautiful pictures. Every function works except the zoom. Whenever I push the zoom out the camera displays "turn the power off and on again" I have done that a few hundred times and it never works...but I always keep hoping...I hope someone can help me.

    Thank you for your help "jackboy" that just might fix the problem. I contacted Sony and they say that I have to send my camera in to get the firmwear installed. Does anyone know where I might download it and install it myself. Somewhere I can download it...
    Sincerely,

    I have a 2 year old SONY CYBERSHOT DCS-H1 camera, and I must say it was a good camera until recently I tried to shoot and operate the zoom button when I noticed that when it gets to about a one third of its distance the camera freezes and in order to have it going again I have to open the battery compartment to switch it off and then close the door of the battery compartment restart again. When the camera freezes I can hear a huming noise. What could be the trouble? It seems that these cameras suffer from some kind of simpton which is common. Any suggestions besides sending it for repair, which is too expensive to start with.

Check the Sony Support site for this- it may be a free firmware adjustment to down load.
It is not likely an out of warrant camera could be a viable repair option

    If they say it has to go back then back it must go.
    Sometimes- some makes for some models have a download option
    If this one has Sony would have told you this.

Sony dsc-H1 won't switch off of movie mode


When you switch the camera from mode to mode, does it make the click noise to signify that the camera recognized that it changed modes? If not it could be that the switch itself has become unlogged from the switch. I know I had a older camera had this happen before. Try pushing down hard on the toggle wheel and seeing if it will snap back into place. Otherwise the switch inside the camera itself is probably broken, and if this is the case cheapest thing you can do is have Sony do warranty work on the camera. http://www.sonystyle.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/SYCustomerCare?storeId=10151&catalogId=10551&langId=-1 Click repair and service under Technical Support. This will get the process started on the warranty work.

I actually have the exact same problem with the Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-H9 It says Access because it's strugglign to read the media card you have in it. Sometimes trying a different card works, but it likely needs hardware repair. mine is in the shop for the 2nd time with the same problem.

Sony DSC-P3 Zoom stopped working


i had that same problem. check your image size, the camera cant zoom if the image size is set to 3.1M or 2.8M(3:2)

how to change image size:
turn on camera and leave it in camera mode (picture taking mode)
press the delete/image button
change image size until camera zooms again
VGA gives the biggest zoom range

i hope this helps
it worked on my camera

H1 out of focus above 7xzoom?


HI, are you sure that there is no conversion lens setting activated in the setup menu? It sounds like that to me. These modes limit the ranges. I hope it will help, otherwise you will have to bring it back.

Sony DSC-W12 Camera


The W12 must be a European version of the W1 or W5 camera. The W12 is not available in the USA. It sounds like you have the "digital zoom" feature active. Digital zoom lowers the quality of the photo. It (in effect) reduces the megapixels applied to an area of a photo. Digital zoom should not be used if you want quality results.
