How do I put my camera online


Use the free software called Picasa. It has an easy import function. Once you cable your camera to the computer, turn it on to the photo view mode. Or put your camera's memory card into the computer's card slot while Picasa is open and look for the 'import' tab.

Issue with my Sony Cyber-shot DCS-W80


Hi!
Does the display itself or just the image blink? Actually, W80, W85 and W90 has a problem with the shutter cable connector - it looses contact from time to time, so the shutter could open or close all the time, changing the amount of light getting through and when shooting doesn't close as the camera is not able to control them normaly as there's a loose connection. If the pictures have horizontal lines (zoom in the picture to check it) then it's 100% this problem. If so, you should contact your local Sony service center and see if they can fix it for free as it's a factory problem. If they don't aggree / ask too much, you can contact me at toms.safranovs@gmail.com and I can try to help you to fix this problem yourself (if you're ready to open it).
I work in a Sony service center.

Hope this helps!

Tom

Zooming problem sony cybershot W90


Characteristic of the beast!
It is a photo camera not a movie camera my kodak z740 is the same way. With the resolution they get if they had this capability they would put the video cameras to the back of the bus

Blurry pictures


This is the problem of the ZOOM in your camera. Its alignment is disturb by you. Your camera must have fallen down or some one has pressed the ZOOM from front when it was open. The solution is to get repaired at your nearest SONY service center.

Opening and closing 3 times and then saying turn off and then back on


So 2 weeks ago my Sony DSC-W80 stopped working. Our friends dog ran into the camera (in my girlfriends hand) full speed. It started opening and closing a few times, and then giving the "turn the camera off and back on" message. I read about tapping around the lens, etc. None of this worked.

I took off the camera body and carefully examined the interior of the camera. Turning in on and watching closely, I discovered the problem. Looking at the camera from the front, I saw a slider on the top right side of the lens that appeared to be jammed. I then saw a spring that was attached to the slider and free on the other end. Apparently when the dog rammed the camera, the other mount for the spring broke off (they are very fragile). The purpose of the slider is to adjust the viewfinder based on the zoom range of the lens. I simply removed the slider which had jammed when the spring came loose. Camera works flawlessly now. The only issue is that the viewfinder doesn't zoom, but who uses the viewfinder anymore anyway? Oh, and I have a screw leftover. What project isn't complete without having extra parts when you are done?

Hope this can help someone else!

DSC-W80 zoom extends, shutter opens, closes, zoom closes, 5x, won't work


Hey kbcinc,
I would try taking the battery out and waiting a minute and then reinserting the battery. Another option you have is to try and reinitialize the camera, but you would need access to the settings menu on the camera and it doesen't sound like you do. To initialize the camera go to main settings 1 and choose initialize. If this doesn't work I would bring it to an authorized service center to have it looked at.

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.
