The problem may be with a defective switch on the inside or simply that the switch wore out or the inner lever broke. If the switch does not have a solid click feel but a smooth glide then the internal lever broke, if you cannot feel a difference then the contacts either came off the board or they are worn/dirty. You can press down lightly and then move the switch. You can also try cleaning the internal contact by removing all power sources "charger and batteries " from the device and dropping a small amount of rubbing alcohol in the switch where it can slowly flow into the inside a little and then rock the switch back and forth 10-15 times and then let dry for an hour or too. This should help some.

Sony HC5 stuck in nightshot


This is most likely a broken or misaligned switch on the internal lens assembly and can be repaired fairly inexpensively. However, it's not a user serviceable problem and will need to be repaired by a qualified service technician.


My name is Rick and I'm a professional repair technician with over 20 years in the business and have repaired many of these. I'm semi retired and work from home with little overhead so I can keep repair costs low. If you decide to have the camera repaired, please click HERE for a directory listing that suits your needs.

Can't turn off nightshot on my handycam help!!!


Option 1:

Using the NightShot:

1. First Set the POWER Switch to Camera, Slide NIGHTSHOT to ON.

2. The NIGHTSHOT indicators flash on the screen.

3. To cancel the NightShot mode, Slide NIGHTSHOT to OFF.


Option 2:

1. Let us try to reset the Camcorder and check if it helps to resolve the issue.

2. Locate the RESET button behind the LCD screen of the Camcorder.

3. The Camcorder should be switched ON when you reset the unit. Press the RESET button using a sharp-pointed object.

NOTE: Resetting the Camcorder will reset the settings of the Camcorder to the factory settings including date and time. It will not delete any data saved in the Camcorder.


Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

DSC-F717 - "stucked" in nightshot mode


Yes you are right, it is more than likely the nightshot button that has shorted.

This is button is part of what we call the Switch control Block.

Phone your local Sony service Centre and ask them how much it would cost to replace the switch control block. My estimate is about a 1/5 of the original cast you paid for the camera.

Good luck.
