I found out how to do this at last, you turn the dial to P instead of auto, then when in picture taking mode instead of playback you click menu, B&W is one of the options that comes up first! So simple but it took me ages to find!!

How do I change the settings to take pictures in Black & White? Thank you


From the shooting menu, select "Color." You can select "B&W" for black-and-white, or "Sepia" for the old-fashioned brownish look. For full details look in the manual under "Shooting menu." It's on page 32 of the online version of the manual available on the manufacturer's web site at

Sony DSC T77 How to Setup Black and white mode


Hi Allonsoma,

What the manual doesn't tell you is that you need to change the REC mode first to be able to fint the buttons in MENU.

Fist go into the REC mode (the one above menu when taking a photo). Change this to PGM and click OK. Now go into MENU, on the 3/4 page second button down should be a box with a + in the corner. This is the colour mode option. You can now change to vivid, sepia or black and white.

Hope this helps.

DSC-W70 Picture is yellow and blurred


Hi dbyinva

I have not yet heard of yellow pictures on the DSC-W70 and I know this camera very well.

It might be that you have a white-balance impurity problem causing the yellow glow?

Try to reset the software back to factory settings:

1. Put the camera selection knob to the `green` camera.
Now press the `menu` button.
Use the right arrow to move all the way to the little toolbox picture.
Once in the setup menu, use the arrow pointing down to move to the little toolbox with a `1`
Now press the right arrow again and then the right arrow when you have highlighted `Initialize`
Now press the `middle` button on the arrow control keys.
Camera wants to know are you sure - select OK again.
You will now have to input the date and time again.

Check to see if the photos come out correctly now.

If not.... it might be a faulty CCD unit and you will have to contact Sony for service information

Good luck

Reddish tinged photos


It might be a possible CCD defect , as usually the symptoms are odd colours in a photo hence your red tinge in your photos.Its quite expensive as it labour intensive to fix .Rather just buy another camera or you can try to solder another ccd from anotehr camera > look on ebay for parts (not recommended precise alignment needed).

Black and white


I found the user manual to your camera online and it states that you can only use black and white, and sepia when shooting movies. Here is a link to that manual http://www.docs.sony.com/release/DSCW30-W40-W50-W70.pdf Page number 32 is where it talks about using this option. Hope this helped.
