DSC-T7 Locked up "USB Mode Normal"

Hello, I hope someone here can help me. I am going crazy!! My DSC-T7 was working find and all of a sundden in the middle of taking a bunch of pictures it started to go back and forth between the normal picture taking screen and "USB Mode Normal" screen. I tried to turn it off and on a bunch of times and it is now worse! at the moment: when I turn it on, it showes the battery power on the left top corner, mid top it will say "USB Mode Normal" under that there are four white dots and at the bottom it says: "Switch on MENU". If I press the menu botton, everything stays the same except the lower left corner, inside a yello box will say: "USB Connect". pressing menue will toggle between these two screens. non of the other bottons do anything. I took the mem stick out and turned it on still the same. I took the battery out and put it back in with the same results. has anyone run into this? can anyone help? Please and thank you.

    Yes, it's an old camera, but my mom gets use out of it. Now, after all this time, it too, is locked into this mode. Has anyone found a fix? I can get to the Access creen without any printer hookup, but just can't get out of USB mode at all. Is there a keypress combintion to do some kind of factory reset? I really do need to fix this. Thanks.

I am a user with the exact same problem as you desribed for my DSC-T7. My problem started when I splashed two drops of water need the battery door and then the camera would not power up. I removed battery and card for a day and camera worked fine for another day. The following day, I left my camera in my sun visor of my car for the day (>90 deg F outside) which I forgot that I put it there. The next day my camera did power up in the locked mode exactly as yours. I do not know if it was the water drops or the heat but it is doing exactly as you desribe. However, here is something that I have discovered while trying to get the camera to work: 1. I plugged the adapter into the side of the camera since I am concerned that the USB port is the issue. 2. I plugged the USB cable into my portable printer and powerer the printer up and then turned on the camera in all three modes to see if anything changed and it did not. 3. I have found if you turn off the printer with the USB cable still in the printer and the adapter, the camera then enters a mode that shows thw word "ACCESS" and then the camera works perfectly. All modes of the camera work fine. But as soon as you power up the printer or remove any of the cables or remove the adapter the camera reenters the locked mode. This is not a solution but an indicator that the USB port is possibly causing the problem but not sure why the printer being off causes the camera to work fine. In addition, have all of the cables hooked up and to the printer does not allow the camera to be used with any mobility but wanted to let you know what I have discovered and hopefully maybe this may lead to a potential solution.

LCD screen went black


No. It is likely that there is still water in it. It's very important that you take the battery out and do not try to use it. Take it to a repair shop and be SURE to tell them it had water in it so they can take the appropriate steps to clean and protect it.

Sony Cybershot DSC-T7


Hey lmcconnell,
Error code E:61:00 means the camera has encountered a malfunction, and you should try initializing the camera back to the factory settings. Instructions on how to do this are on page 51 of your user manual, and I have included a link to a PDF download of your manual if you no longer have it. If this doesn't work I would have the camera looked at by an authorized service technician. I hope this helps!

DSC-T7 Magnify Mode


Hello, Don't mix magnifier mode and expanded focus mode. Magnifier mode is simply a short AF range operating mode, like a kinda super-macro. Whether you selected mag/macro/normal, the camera operates always same except that the focussing range limits are changed accordingly by the S/W. The lens itself is capable of focussing from 1cm to infinity anyway. Expanded focus is used on some still and video cameras to assit manual focus because the LCD's resolution is lower than the CCD's. It can be seen as a workaround for the lack of optical reflex viewfinder (Sony cams ar not dSLRs, including HDR-FX1!). So the center area of the pic is "digitally zoomed" to make sure you can adjust a sharp focus of the point of interest in your frame. However it has nothing to do with macro shooting, and works at any distance within the lenses focussing range. Hope having helped

DSC-T7 - Noise in image


No, not really. For a digicam, it has simply amazingly low noise and a very sharp image. Your shot was shot at ISO320 - there's naturally going to be a little noise in the image. Even DSLRs when shot at higher ISOs like that tend to pick up a little bit of noise. Try shooting at lower ISOs like 64 or 100 to keep noise levels to a minimum. Even in your pic, I didn't see any noise in the shadows, looks quite good.

DSC-T7 : Blurred images ?


I don't own a T7,but I have the P150 and S40. All these small Sony digicams have something in common;Sony uses 1/40 as the default flash shutter speed in low light conditions,while other makers use 1/60.You are more likely to get a blurry picture compared to other digicams you have previously used,unless you hold the camera steady (two hands). The other thing about these cameras is their lack of weight, coming in at a mere 134 g/4.7 oz. Light weight means you must hold the camera steady (two hands) or risk camera movement when you press the shutter. Again, the tendency with a small,light weight camera is to hold it with one hand while you take a picture,this leads to blurry pictures. The review for this camera is positive; a "Dave's Pick." - Just remember the flash range is only 5ft / 1.6m. http://www.imaging-resource.com/PRODS/T7/T7A.HTM
