How do you remove the battery cover on sony cybershot dsc s700 or where can I find instruction.I need help. Thanks Bob

When it is not in the user manual, you should not try this. Modern electronics are difficult to repair. When you try to remove something from a digital camera, it could be not even the certified repair centres will accept it for repair. So unless you already wanted to trow it away, please don't doe this.

Sony cybershot DSC-S730's flash doesnot work. what to do

I'm sorry that the Built in flash is not working as expected. If the Forced flash setting is already enabled and the flash is still not working, then the issue may be due to another camera setting. Even if the Forced flash setting is enabled, the flash will still not work in the following circumstances:
  • When shooting MPEG movies
  • When shooting in the Twilight or Handheld Twilight mode
  • If shooting with the Burst or Multi Burst mode
  • Shooting with Sweep Panorama
  • Shooting with the Fireworks or High Sensitivity mode.
  • If an external flash is connected.

Please make sure that the Camera is not set to any of these modes. You can check the manual to get the information to change the settings
If the issue persists, please try initializing the Camera. To initialize the Camera, please use the Initialize option under the Setup 1 Menu of the Camera. If the issue persists after performing all the above mentioned troubleshooting steps, service is required. You can click hear to locate your nearest local repair option for the Camera.

Thanks for understanding. Please let me know if you require any further assistance or help with changing the above mentioned steps.

Can i use Sony Cyber-shot DSC-S700 as webcam and how?

Yes you can use DCS-S700 sony cybershot as a webcam but you must first have the TV tuner card that accepts AV input from an RCA cable (red, yellow and white wire) which is free when you buy the camera (included in the BOX). Sets your TV tuning software (I've used "honestech" software) to receive Composite Input. After setting, close the TV tuning software. Then sets your messenger or any net conferencing software to accept the TV tuner card as your webcam.Yurika!!! It works for me and the videos are very clear. Except only that the focus box of the camera don't disappear.
Even I've used it to document my birthday party from morning to afternoon recording the video directly to my computer without any problem.

Oppss. Dont forget to rate me.
