I don't have a repair manual but I can fix your LCD if you got one. If you don't have LCD, I got one to replace. Let me know what you would like to do. Thanks.

SOURCE: sony cybershot DSC W30 buttons fail

take the battery out and let the camera sit for an hour or two, take out the memory card, try to view photos on computer, if it does not work, you will have to format the card and start over. Some times when the format on the card is bad, the camera will not work properly. I have two cybershots myself.

SOURCE: Stuck power button on my Sony cybershot dsc-s600

Hi!
Yes, power buttons do break on these cameras. Contact your local Sony service center and see how much will it cost to replace the top panel. If they ask too much, feel free to contact me at toms.safranovs@gmail.com
I work in a Sony service center.

Reset button on a 2011 sony cybershot DSC WX9


there is no such thing as a reset button in the DSC WX9 camera. Sony does advice you to remove the battery for more than one minute, and than replace it after that minute, is something unexpected occurs.

  • Remove the battery from Camera.
  • Press and hold the Power button for more than 15 seconds.
  • Reinsert the battery
  • Turn ON the Camera.

Thanks for understanding. Please let me know if you require further assistance.

Hi! have a sony cybershot dsc s2100 digital camera. records vidoes but on play back there is no audio!! help!!


Hi,

The reason for this is that many of these cameras do not support recording of audio and they have no microhone or speakers for playback.

I have checked the spec of the dsc s2100 and unfortunately it does not support audio. Page 18 of the manual specifies "You cannot listen to the audio with this camera when a movie is played back."


Its unfortunate but due to the specification of the camera there is nothing you can do about it.

Thanks for using fixYa.

My sony cybershot dsc-s2100 gives error as memory card locked.I can view photos from memory but can not take new photos.


There is a small slide switch on the side of the card, it should be in the position closest to the card contacts (little gold fingers), move the slide switch towards the contacts.

  1. Ensure the camera is turned on.
  2. If applicable, ensure the lens cover has been removed before taking pictures.
  3. Ensure the LCD backlight is turned on by pressing the DISPLAY button several times until the screen appears. NOTE: Depending on the camera model, the DISPLAY button may be labeled as DISP or with a display icon [FIG. 1].

Try to reset the camera to original settings:
How to reset a Cyber-shot® digital still camera back to original factory settings. Solution
sp.gif sp.gif Cyber-shot cameras nowadays have a built-in rechargeable battery for retaining time, date, and other settings. Since the built-in rechargeable battery is not removable, current Cyber-shot camera models can only be returned to the original factory settings by pressing a small RESET button on the camera or by using an Initialize option in the menu.
Older-model Cyber-shot cameras (prior to the year 2000) do not have a built-in rechargeable battery and do not have a RESET button or Initialize option in the menu. These cameras require a manual power reset.
IMPORTANT: To determine whether or not your camera has a RESET button or Initialize option, or for other model-specific information to complete any of the steps in this solution, refer to the operating instructions supplied with the product. Manuals are available online in the Manuals/Specs/Warranty section of the Sony® eSupport Web site.
Follow the appropriate procedure below for your camera.
Using an Initialize option in the menu
Since Cyber-shot cameras have different menu system layouts, refer to the instruction manual specific for your camera model.
Using a RESET button
  1. Locate the RESET button on the camera.
  2. Use a pointed object (like a ballpoint pen) to press and hold the RESET button for 2-3 seconds.
  3. After 2-3 seconds has elapsed, release the RESET button.
Performing a manual power reset
  1. Turn off the camera.
  2. Remove the battery pack.
  3. Remove the button-sized lithium battery.
  4. Allow the camera to remain without power for 30 seconds.
  5. Reinsert the button-sized lithium battery.
  6. Reinsert the battery pack.
  7. Turn on the camera.
