Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W80 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Display & photo limited to a diagonal bar

I've had a period of where the photo display & the actual photo is limited to a diagonal bar that is about 1/2" that runs from the lower left to the upper right of the view screen. The rest of the screen is black. If I zoom out, the bar widens to the point that the viewer is covered with the view, however, to get a photo, I'd have to stand in the next county. It is not currently doing it. I don't know hwy it started nor why it stopped doing so, but it sure was difficult to deal with when it happened.

The fix was simple: The automatic lens cover wasn't opening all the way when I powered up the camera. A simple tap on the lens cover corrected it.

Large pictures don't display

Many digital photo viewers can only display photos of a certain size or less. Check your owner's manual, or find the manual online, and it should tell you what the upper size limit is for your viewer.

Will it be fine to engage in videogames about a whole new HIGH DEFINITION LCDTV?

The problem your likely ( thinking about will be the lag or perhaps hold up attributable to adjusting the particular image resolution to display the particular photo. With HDTVs, the particular image resolution is quite a bit higher than exactly what CRT TV set ever before available, as well as exactly what Dis 2 had been ever before created for.

No image shows when I take picture

Usually the photo is displayed for a short period of time. Try the setup in the menu. There should be an option for previewing recent pictures.

Bmw e60 . Error: the word "limit" in

Is dont remember bad, this is the Speed Limit Display. That is a revolutionary new driver assistance system. The Speed Limit Display keeps the driver informed of the maximum permissible speed at all times. A camera fitted near the interior mirror permanently monitors the signs by the road as well as variable speed limit signs on overhead display screens.

If there is a sign indicating a speed limit in the wet, limitations at certain times of the day or restrictions applying only to towing vehicles, the intelligent driver assistance system, part of BMW ConnectedDrive, collects data from the rain sensors, clock and tow bar before displaying the restriction in the cockpit or, if requested, on the Head-Up Display.

Shortcut commands of insert,file,edit,format,tool,help,new


I think your problem has something to do with the display of the MENU BAR of your browser. If the MENU BAR is displayed, you don't need to use the shortcut commands. This is what you've got to do:

1. Press the Alt Key. After releasing it, you will find a temporary display of the MENU BAR.

2. Click View

3. Click Toolbars. As you noticed, different toolbars are displayed. Click the MENU BAR, NAVIGATION TOOL BAR, and all the other bars that you want.

You will be surprised that all these commands will be permanently displayed on your browser.

NOTE: This process is applicable to Mozilla Browser.

Your problem is solved! Thanks. I hope it helps...

Can you make horizontal pictures fit the frame

I'll assume your picture is already oriented properly (horizontally), i.e. you do not need to rotate it.
There are 2 modes for displaying the photo ... (1) the ORIGINAL mode - displays the photo in actual photo size, which may result in part of the photo not being visible on the screen, or, (2) the OPTIMAL mode - which reduces the size and resolution to best fit the screen.
To set image size mode, select the SETUP on the HOME screen display, then highlight and select the DISPLAY IMAGE SIZE button, and go from there.
The first (ORIGINAL) mode is usually the default mode. When you select the OPTIMAL mode, the picture will be scaled to fit the size of the screen ... but you may see "dark" bars (e.g. on top and bottom of the screen) if your picture does not fit the exact screen size.
