This error message indicates that the current scene selection mode is not compatible for Macro shooting.

The macro is not applicable in Landscape, Twilight and Fireworks mode.
You can use other scene selection modes with macro mode.
Thanks for understanding.
I hope the information helpful, if you want any clarification, please let me know.

Why is macro invalid in sony w dsc-220?


You mean you can't turn the macro mode on? Most likely there are some settings set that won't let you turn macro on. Do an initialization (reset) from the SETUP menu.

It keeps saying my sony cyber-shot DSC-H3 macro is invalid. what do i need to do to get it working again?


Press the "Home" button, go to "Settings" (last menu item at right), then "Main Settings", and use the "Initialize" button.

And also;
Macro is not available in landscape mode, twilight mode or fireworks mode, if you try to use macro in any of those modes it will say invalid macro.

Canon SX200 IS macro focus problem


I have the exact same problem, with macro, super macro, or manual focus. Sometimes the macro focus works so well that I can actually capture finger prints on a subject. Other times (most of the time) the focus in macro mode just does not work.

I have read in some forums that it may be related to the amount of light being used when in macro mode; although that doesn't seem to fix the problem for me, maybe that will help your solution. Could you try it out, ie. try macro mode with a brighter light source?
