A multiburst is stored as a single picture comprised of sixteen one-megapixel frames. The camera gives you no way to separate the frames, but you can use just about any photo editing program on a computer to crop out the other fifteen frames. However, the result will still be only one megapixel, suitable for email or use on the web but not for making large prints.

you must have better knowledge of image editing tools like photoshop etc. with the help of those you can remove the date from the original photographs you already taken or you can do some beautiful border work to hide those date time with Ulead Photo Impact.

Hello and Welcome to Fixya

To solve it try the following solutions
Format error with the Internal Memory which can be corrected by formatting the Internal Memory.
If it is issue with memory stick then turning the power off and on again or taking out and inserting the "Memory Stick" several times may help in resolving the issue. Error may be because of Unformatted "Memory Stick" which can be resolved by formatting the Memory Stick in the Camera If it not remove by formatting in the camera then connect it to PC and tried to format it again but either FAT instead of FAT32 which is the regular format and then reinserted the memory stick and formatted it with the camara. Now it will be solved if it still exist then it means Memory Stick is broken or not compatible which can be resolved by inserting a new compatible Memory stick

I THINK THE PROBLEM MUST BE THE BATTERIES. TRY REPLACING A NEW SET OF FULLY CHARGED ONES. THIS SHOULD SOLVE THE PROBLEM.

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.

The only time that happens with mine is when I am low/out of battery power. I usually have to replace the batteries (even if the lens is still out) and then it works fine. Find it happens more often with rechargeable batteries because they still have a bit of power left, where regular batteries have nothing left after they 'die'.

Your camera almost certainly has a lens error, this
is such a common fault that I hope you don't mind me pasting my stock
generic answer below. No point in reinventing the wheel!
Stuck lenses are probably the most common
reason that compact digital cameras get thrown away, but there's a fair
chance of recovering use of your camera again
The fault is
commonly caused by dirt or grit blocking the mechanism, or due to it
having suffered a recent fall. Another common cause is that the camera
was in a pocket or bag and the power button accidentally activated and
tried to open the lens against resistance. The mechanism may have simply
dislodged or there may be parts which have broken.
If your camera
is still under warranty and has definitely not been subject to misuse
then contact the Sony service department in your country to find out about a free repair. If
the warranty has expired though a professional repair will far exceed
cost of replacing your camera. You will therefore have nothing to lose
trying to fix this yourself.
Please click here
and you will be taken to an excellent article provided by the Camera
Repair website. For the most part, you'll be guided on how to physically
manipulate your camera to try and clear the fault. Although the article
mentions Canon a few times, the advice applies equally to all cameras
with lens errors and is not model-specific.
If the link doesn't work then cut and paste the following address into your browser:-
luck, I hope you manage to use this information to fix your camera, or
at least are able to use the information to help decide whether to buy
another camera. If you do
decide that you have to throw your camera away then don't forget to
remove the memory card as it can be used in other devices.
