Check your settings, is it still on Auto or have you accidentally changed the settings to manual settings.

Check your flash modes, it may have slipped into slow sync.

It may be that the infra red sensor needs cleaning or is covered with something like fluff or grease from sun cream. This would prevent it seeing clearly in lower light conditions.

If you have not tried another USB cable do so. Another solution if the camera won't connect to the PC is to use a card reader. They are cheap and usually have the ability to read several different card types including Sony memory stick, SD, SDHC and compact flash.

Maybe the camera needs a reset or the memory card needs re-formatting.

It may be your missing a CODEC in your PC. However you have several options. Try downloading and installing 'VLC media player', that plays most video clip types including AVCHD.

A couple of good video format converters are 'Handbrake' and 'AnyVideo Converter'. Both are free downloads.

Try reformatting the card or use another new or re-formatted card. That might help.

If the camera has sensor cleaning ability it should have a built in facility to do this. Otherwise do not attempt it yourself, check the camera manual or the manufacturers website for more information.

Taking photos in low light is always in risk of getting what could be described as grey spots. The technical term is Artefacts. This is where the sensor has insufficient light to generate a clear image from the available light and the camera software guesses what colours should be there, often they are grey or black.

You need two things. A USB lead to connect to your camera and software installed on your computer to recognise your camera is connected to it via the USB lead. The software and USB lead should have come with the camera. The software will be on a CD or DVD. If it did not then you need to download the software from the Sony website and then install it on your computer. Depending on your computer, ensure you download the correct type. It will either be for a MAC IOS or Windows PC.

Not all cameras display the date on the photo. Most just store the date and time with all the other photo details in the EXIF file.
