That is correct. You can zoom in and out before starting the movie, but you cannot zoom while recording. See page 18 of the Cyber-shot handbook.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.


Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

The camera won't deface your pictures by scrawling a string of numbers across them. However the date and time (and a lot more) are stored with each image in its EXIF metadata. If you want the date printed with your picture, please consult the documentation for whatever program you're using to print your pictures. Depending on the program and printer, you may print the date on the image, in the margins, or on the back.

Press the MENU button display the menu screen. Use cursor-down to select the toolbox icon and press * at the center of the cursor pad. Use cursor-up/down to select the wrench-and-hammer icon, then select the second item on the submenu.

I don't have this exact model, but try pressing the DISP button. It should toggle you through a few different modes of data and picture assisting modes and then get to a no overlay mode.

If your model is different you can try looking for viewfinder options in the menu as well.

Hope this helped.

Good day,

This tip will explain a few methods on how to try and fix your lens if it is stuck or you get a lens error on your screen.

Please note that all these methods are used at the users own risk and that I can not be held responsible for any damages or losses that occur while trying these methods.

1. If your camera is still under warranty, send your camera to the manufacturer to be replaced or fixed professionally.

2. If your camera is out of warranty try these methods.

  • Make sure your batteries are fully charged.
  • Remove the batteries for 10min. Replace the batteries and see if the problem persists.
  • Try compressed air. This method can be useful if there are any sand or any other object stuck in the lens motors. Use compressed air with a fine tip. Direct the air between the camera body and lens and move in a circular motion around the lens to complete a full rotation.
  • You can also try to tap the padded USB cover firmly on a flat surface like a table. This is sometimes a surprisingly effective method.
  • The last method is to try and force the lens. Turn of your camera and place it on its back on a flat surface. Look at the spacing between the lens and the body and see if the gap is consistent all the way around the lens. If the gap is not even it is likely that the camera fell while the lens was extended. Now VERY GENTLY push down on the lens were the gap is the biggest until you her a "click". This will indicate that the lens is back in place. Try powering back on.
  • If the lens does not extend or it extend and retracts turn of the camera. Hold the camera in your one hand and with the other hand turn the one part of the lens in a circular motion. Rotate both sections of the lens until you hear a "click". This will indicate that the lens popped back in place. Power the camera back on.
  • The last method you can use is to turn the lens while powering on the camera until you hear a "click". Power the camera of and back on to see if it works.
If any of the methods listed above failed to work for your lens problem it would be wise to take it on to a professional to get your camera repaired.

Thanks for taking the time to read my tip and feel free to let me know if it was of any help.

Regards

I'm going to assume you mean the "protect" function in the camera, rather than the whole-card "lock" function. I don't think there's a single manufacturer that makes this clear. But let me tell you their little secret... whatever you did to protect it - do it again. It's a toggle function! They wouldn't want to put "protect/unprotect" in the menu system instead of just "protect", it might look 'cluttered'. Of course, it might be more useful too. I just dug out my own Sony camera, and it's easy enough to find; be in playback mode on the picture in question, press 'menu' and scroll to the 'protect' function.

some problem already occur with your camera, its proprietary software maybe the culprit, you said already factory setting don't work. maybe it need to reset the camera

Sony DSCW320... | Answered on Feb 12, 2011


Usually a result of a lens jam or some dirt/debris/sand getting into the lens mechanism.
Not much you can really do about it except to have the lens replaced. There are
some ideas to temporarily fix the problem, but it will probably happen again.
If you suspect dirt/debris or jams were not the cause then maybe the lens just needs
to be reseated.. just gently tap the side of the lens with a pencil and keep your fingers crossed

Consider NOT connecting the camera to the computer.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.
