Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W50 Digital Camera Logo

Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W50 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Similar problem to Green Can't take a picture

I have almost the same problem as Green. When I turn on the camera I see the Cybershot logo appear, then it says "Access" with a black background behind it...the lens then zooms out and retracts 3 times. Then the message appears (Turn the power off and on again). I can still review old pictures on the lcd. Eventually the camera turns itself off. I've tried removing the battery and also the memory card but nothing works. Any ideas?? Thanx.

Hi there, resoldering the focus motor contacts on the lens unit might be the solution. Replacement of the optical (lens) unit is the ultimate solution. If you want more info please contact me at LIVE Expert Assistance. Best regards, Arpi

Can't download pictures to my computer from my Sony Cybershot W330

Consider NOT connecting your camera to your 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.


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.

Sony cybershot 4.1 DSC-P43

Hi
I bought a new 1MB memory card for this camera and was dismayed to find that the screen went completely blank - I couldn't do anything!!!! It was my sons graduation so had to buy another camera!
But, have just resolved this issue by pressing the bottom right-hand side of the screen with a rubber topped pencil - it works!!!!
This camera may be old and chunky but it still takes amazing pictures.
Hope it works for you too.

Cannot Take Pictures Anymore...

Hey BLOBO123,
I would have the camera looked at by an authorized service technician. You could bring it to a Geek Squad® precinct in a Best Buy™ store and they can send it out for service. The flap that holds the batteries in could possible be purchased from the manufacturer and is probably pretty easy to replace, but the lens is usually much harder and expensive to repair. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan

Bright White Screen

I CAN'T BELIEVE THIS ACTUALLY WORKED!!! At first, when I tapped the Sony Logo, the camera shut off. But then, suddenly the screen turned on and I realized that it was stuck in the time section of the menu. That's why I couldn't take pictures!

WOW!! Thank you for the incredible cost-saving solution! I was about to plunk down $120 for a repair!

Green, I spent some time today with a sony tech rep on line. We went thru the motions of battery, memory card and still no help. So I'm sending my camera back to sony for repair. Mine is still under warranty. Hopefully yours is too. Good Luck. Mike aka m1stones1
