It sounds like the "button" circuit board is not working and will have to be replaced.

  • Anonymous Sep 08, 2007

    I had an open DSC-W50 in my basement, so I just took a look at it. It can be replaced fairly easily. It has a connector, and one screw holding it in place. It can be accessed, after the rear casing of the camera is removed. Let me know if I can help...perhaps a Google search on my user name? ;)
