    Was on a live chat with the folks at Sony, and here is what they said: (you may have to get your wife's help to translate for you)..
    - Select the SETTING menu item from the HOME menu.
    - Select the CLOCK/LANG otion in setting menu
    - Now select LANGUAGE SET option to change menu language.

    BTW, I had to use your email address for the chat, so that if they have anything to follow up with, they will contact your email directly. I hope you dont mind..

Sony should be able to do this for you as there really isn't anything online, they can point you to a place to take it or send it or possibly they will switch yours for one that is standard in English.

you will have to call them

In English: 1-800-222-7669

Let me know if you have any problems with this, thanks

Dsc-tx9 japanese language only


Pretty sure you should be able to put in some new firmware, but I can't find any hint. Not in the manual, not with Sony.
Perhaps you should register the camera, and contact Sony with the question how to change the firmware so you have multi language. Just tell them you got the camera as a present from your friends (associate or what ever) from Japan but you can't work with the language.

Change language from japanese to english on NEX-5N


You absolutely cannot select any other language on Japanese domestic SONY models. The professional line up of camcorders come with an English selection in the menu, but not the consumer models.
Suggestions by well intentioned but ill-informed people to follow the menu in the English user guide, will not get you anywhere. The Japanese models do not include this item in the menu. Plain and simple.
Visitors to Japan should be careful when purchasing items here as they more often than not only include Japanese manuals. SONY and Panasonic also only include English menus in their cameras. Canon and Nikon do have an English selection, but this should be confirmed at the point of purchase not after returning to your country!! Furthermore, warranties are usually only valid for Japan.

How to change language for HDR CX560V Japan from basic Japan to English


I have compared its instruction manual in English and Japanese versions and found that the language setting part is absent in Japanese version. So that the japanese version will support only japanese.
I have asked the seller in Bic Camera shop (in Japan) and he tried to change the language in the menu, but unfortunately he could't find and change it.

Changing the language


The CG6 manual states how to find the change language option in the menus on page 135. Even though you can't read the characters, the position on the menus should be the same.
