    Haven't used my Sony Cyber-Shot-P32 for more than a year. Went to use it and the smart zoom does not work. Any simple suggestions?

  • Anonymous Aug 22, 2008

    I haven't used my Sony camera DSC-P32 in over a year and I can no longer zoom when taking pictures. However, I am able to zoom while previewing my
    pictures. Is there a specific setting that the camera needs to be set to
    in order to zoom. I misplaced my owners manual...as always. Any suggestions?

I had that same problem. check your image size, the camera cant zoom if the image size is set to 3.1M or 2.8M(3:2)

how to change image size:
turn on camera and leave it in camera mode (picture taking mode)
press the delete/image button
change image size until camera zooms again
VGA gives the biggest zoom range

i hope this helps
it worked on my camera

Wont zoom in or out message reads turn the power off and on again can access stored pics but wont take new ones sony cybershot dsc w35


Is this camera only have a digital zoom? If it has an optical zoom as well, you could have a setting that is set to ignore digital zoom and because your lighting conditions, zooming in and out is not currently possible because the aperture can not be opened enough to light you take a picture without being blurry. The auto focus would be taking priority in stopping you from taking a picture.
Just a hunch.

Internal Zoom Malfunction


Hi

Do you mean the 'digital zoom' when you zoom in as far as possible on something or do you mean even with the camera zoomed all the way OUT it still does it?

Yes you should always avoid the 'digital zoom', but if it still doesn't work when zoomed all the way out you need to have the lens cleaned, repaired, or replaced.

ZOOM problem


Most likely there is a problem with servo drive for the lens and camera functions. The fix is to replace the complete processor board including the servo drive electronics. After replacement the board must be tested and calibrated.

Call Sony to see if the camera is worth to have serviced.

I can't zoom with my DSC-H1


Check the Sony Support site for this- it may be a free firmware adjustment to down load.
It is not likely an out of warrant camera could be a viable repair option

Sony DSC-W12 Camera


The W12 must be a European version of the W1 or W5 camera. The W12 is not available in the USA. It sounds like you have the "digital zoom" feature active. Digital zoom lowers the quality of the photo. It (in effect) reduces the megapixels applied to an area of a photo. Digital zoom should not be used if you want quality results.
