Recognition problem with Sony DSC-P50

I've got a Sony Cybershot DSC-P50. It's kinda old and it's been dropped a couple times but lately my Windows XP won't recognize it. When I plug it in to the USB it says device not recognized. I went to Sony.com and redownloaded the driver. That didn't help. I tried the install imaging device wizard in the control panel but I can't get Sony to show up on the manufacturers list. Help is appreciated.

Re: Recognition problem with Sony DSC-P50

Most digital cameras software require that the camera be in playback mode (mode for viewing photos) before the computer will recognize the camera. If that is not the solution, be sure to go back and read your Sony User's Manual and see if you are overlooking something. If you are unable to get the computer to recognize the camera you can always buy a card reader (about $20).

I have a Sony Cybershot DSC-P73 that I have had for many years now. I have never had any problems with the camera till now. It has never been dropped or anything, but the camera will not zoom in or out at...


It's possible with how old it is the zoom motor has worn out, I've seen that before with the older Sony digital cameras. It's possible for it to be repaired but it's more cost effective to get a new camera from my experience. Hope this helps.

Downloaded driver for cybershot dsc s500, then try to interface camera with computer, pc doesnt see the camera in control panel or my computer removable hard drive.


Sony has the roughest firmware known to man for digital cameras. If running Windows XP or Vista you can simply connect the camera to the USB port and let the computer do the rest. Picbrige works the best for it downloads the quickest. Picbrige will be on your cameras list of choices to use for downloading

I put new batteries in my Sony cybershot camera and can only view pictures. the camera shuts off when we try to take a picture.


Make sure the batteries are not rechargeable and that they are fresh. If the problem reoccurs, remove batteries and reinsert after about 15 minutes.

DSC P52 cybershot camera


I cannot provide the answer but i think it may have something to do with the shutter mechanism. When you dropped it, something inside the mechanism may have bent or stopped. Don't take the camera apart yourself, take it to a specialist such as an electronics store. I hope this helps. Good Luck!
