Question about Sanyo Cameras

6 Answers

I cannot set the menu language to english. I have accessed the menu correctly, but there appears only to be Japanese language. A friend from Japan sent the Sany Xacti as a present. If only Japanese language is on this model is there a firmware patch that can load English.

    No it was not an answer, it was a question. I have an Xacti VPCcg9. What is the solution?

  • garywalloch Aug 02, 2008

    The problem has been stated. There is no option for a language other than Japanese. All the other cameras in the sanyo xacti lineup has the choice of several languages except this model which only offers Japanese on their menu. Is there a place to download an english language menu or option via a frimware upgrade or some other means.

    Are you guys stupid? This a camera not a phone. Your answer is not a solution it is a statement. Please solve the problem. Can you get in touch with Sanyo on this issue and ask them. I cannot find a contact point for them. Your answers are totally not helpful. A statement is not a solution.

You need to contact the manufacture and request the english firmware and the update utility..
Simply use the update utility and install the firmware they provided.

Normally it isnt avilable for download, but if you contact them and request it they will provide it.

Hi-

If there is no option to change language to English then chances are you cant really change it. You can have the phone reformatted but you will have to contact the manufacturer to check for their Authorized servicers or service centers.

Thanks for using Fixya!!

If you know to read Japanese then you will have to go the menu and change the language.

but if there is no option to select different language then you cannot change the menu setting by using a firmware patch.

Updating the firmware should put it into English but performing the update in a totally different language might prove challenging. Here are the links below:

Link to the Sanyo English firmware update page:

Direct link to the firmware file:

And a great thread with all the info you could want on the firmware update:

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.

Want to change the language from japan to english


With the camera turned on, press the MENU button. Use the left/right arrows to move to the Setup2 tab (tools with the number 2). The language setting is the first item on this menu. With the first item highlighted, press the SET button. You should see fifteen languages displayed on the LCD. Using the arrow keys, scroll to ENGLISH then press the SET button. Press the MENU button again to exit.

Japanese to English Version


I am not sure if this will help or not but it is worth a try. Here is how to change the language. Hopefully there will be a option to choose English.


How to change the language:

  1. On the Nintendo DSi Menu, use the stylus to select the Settings ("wrench") icon.
  2. Select the right arrow thee times to go to page 4, then select "Language."
  3. Select from the options options on the screen:
    • English
    • Français (French)
    • Español (Spanish)
  4. Select OK (the bottom-right button) to confirm and return to the System Settings.
Note: Some games that feature multiple languages may display in the language you have selected in the system settings.
English.

LANGUAGE SETTING JAPANESE TO ENGLISH


Hello analyn
There may be a simple fix to this problem.
Find a friend that has a cybershot of the same model as your own. In their camera, open the menu and navigate to the language setting. While you do this count how many times you press the button. Example:
Menu
-camera settings 1
-program 2
-personal settings 3 press ok

personal settings
-storage type 1
-date and time 2
-language 3 press ok

language
-spanish 1
-english 2 press ok
-japanese




Although the language is different, the number of spaces should be the same, so even though you can't read it to change the language, you should be able to count it out. Or if you are lucky you may have a Japanese friend who can read it.





Hope this helps
-Chris

Transfer from japanese to english


what make/model is the vehicle? most in car monitors have a setup menu with language options that should be accessible from the remote control or front panel. if you can get into the setup menu look for an icon that has a person speaking or multiple lines of text in various languages, select it and you should have an english setting under it if the monitor's controller is equipped with the english language data.
