You could restore all the settings by taking out both the main battery and the backup battery.

To clean the sensor, press menu, go to the second tools page (spanner and number 2), press down 5 times until Sensor Cleaning is highlighted and press Set.

Don't forget you'll need to remove the lens!

Sony Cyber Shot W330: My photos are blurry! I feel like I'm holding the camera steady. I've had the camera for 1 year. I am not sure what settings to use . . . ISO, VGA, easy mode, Flash on/off, ?...

Sorry about the focus problems... has the camera been dropped at all? Are you getting a lens error message? If not, then I suggest resetting everything to factory default and starting from there.

I don't have a W330 to look at, so I can only give you my best guess where to find the proper menu options. Go into the menu, then scroll through each screen till you find one that says "Setup" (I believe that Sony uses that name for the section we are looking for) and then you should see an option that says "Initialize". Select this to put all settings back to default, this may clear up the problem.

Now put the camera on the green "A" setting for the shooting mode, and the flash should be on "A" (with a lightning bolt) for automatic. I hope this helps!

You may have changed the light condition settings,white balance etc which will will create bad images when not used under the prescribed conditions.Since you are not aware which all settings you have changed, you can restore the settings of the camera to factory default values.This will allow you to use the camera under normal conditions.Please refer the instructions shown below to set the camera to default values.

I have sony DSC-W190,i want correct menu setting ,bcos if i take a picture its not clear,i think may be menu setting changed,idnt any idea about menu setting pls help.....


If the Menu settings in the camera is changed, then I suggest you to reset the Camera back to factory default. Initializing the Camera back to factory default will set all the settings in the Camera back to factory default.
To initialize the Camera back to factory default, select the INITIALIZE Option from the Main Settings 1 Menu of the Camera to OK.This will set the user defined settings back to factory default. The images and videos will not get deleted.
You can also try a manual reset;

Turn off the camera.

Remove the battery pack.

Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds.

Allow the camera to remain without power for 60 seconds.

Reinsert the battery pack.

Turn on the camera.

The blurry image capturing can also adjusted by changing the ISO Settings or the Scene Selection modes.

Thanks for using FixYa!

Somewhere in the menu there should be a setting that restores factory defaults. Scroll thru the menu items and look for default settings, I believe these are in the same menu that has your formatting options. I hope you have the manual so you can look thru and see what needs to be done. You might also take time to just scroll thru the menu's and see what options are available and maybe you can tell what has been changed or what the options for each menu item are so you can decide wheter you want that selection or make a change there. If you know af a good camera shop or retailer they may be able to help you with this , most places are willing to help if it means getting a new customer in their doors!

Looking to reset to original factory settings

On the camera's menu system, under Setup2, look for the option titled "Clear Settings". When selected, you can either clear just the Custom Settings, or you can clear all camera settings, which restores it to the factory defaults.
