DSC-F717 - "stucked" in nightshot mode

Without previous notice, every time I try to put the camera ON, the 'nightshot' mode become active (right light is ON while selection button is in the middle position). Have made 'reset' without results, Unable to put it OFF. It's possible that just the selection button is damage?

    I have the same problem with the "NIGHTSHOT" light staying lit even when the button is clearly in the middle position. The screen display as well as the view-finder display are distorted - kind of psychedelic in pinks and purple as well. I've reset and turned off the "hologram AF"...nothing seems to change.

    I am in the same situation. I chatted with a technician extensively and he ;suggested several things, none worked. Finally he gave me the service information. Flat rate is $ 211 plus the shipping, Should I spent the money? No other solution in sight at the moment. Prospect of losing down the drain some planned obsolescence in this camera.

    The same "stuck" happened to me. I believed the comments they thried everything. NAH. Try the reset button near the battery. I reset the camera four times, and it worked.

Yes you are right, it is more than likely the nightshot button that has shorted.

This is button is part of what we call the Switch control Block.

Phone your local Sony service Centre and ask them how much it would cost to replace the switch control block. My estimate is about a 1/5 of the original cast you paid for the camera.

Good luck.

DSC-F717 autofocus stops working

I was first going to also suggest a reset. Does your manual focus function correctly from near to far(turning the focus ring in manual) and does the wide to tele motion function fully and smoothly? (lens adjustability without restriction) Was your camera exposed to extreme heat or elements?(beach sand or water of any kind) It may mean electronics only or a mechanical restriction causing an electronic malfunction. A last resort may mean your closer documenting when or how frequent it happens and maybe ultimately a trip (for your camera) to Sony. Get a price quote for repair since you might strike a happy medium of using the camera differently (manually focussing) without exceeding the value of the camera for repair costs.
