Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W70 Digital Camera
Hi, The camera is out of warranty and has an annoying fault. Otherwise it is fine and I would like to fix it myself.
The small dial (top right on the rear of the camera) obviously has a fault, is highly touch sensitive, and adjusts the picture settings even if the camera is just shaken.
I have removed the cover and the dial is a pluggable component that could be replaced. I have two questions:
1. Where can I obtain a replacement dial?
2. The connector ribbon appears to be a simple push fit into the connector. Can I just pull it out and push the replacement in, or is there a way to release the connector, like on other similar connectors on items like laptops?
I would appreciate any help you can offer.
I have the same issue with mine. I usually just leave mine on Auto but half of my pictures end of taken in Portrait which causes image problems.
They sell the dial on E-Bay for about 5.99 shipped. It looks pretty easy but I have not looked at the ribbon cable yet. I would imagine that if you do not see anything plastic like that would pop out (i.e. ribbon cables on many laptops) then it should just pull straight out.
