Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-P31 Digital Camera

2 Answers

Why won't my Cyber-Shot DCS-P31 take pictures?

The camera works in all respects (menu, setup, zoom, all menu manipulations, deletes images from the flashcard, etc.) except it will not take a picture or video when the shutter release is pressed. I suspect corroded contacts. How wouldl I clean them?

Actually, try manually turning off the flash and taking a picture. If the shutter works and takes a picture, then suspect that your flash is burned out. Unfortunately it's not a simple task to change a burned out flash tube.

Hi,


Follow the procedures given below to have a perfect fix for your problem.
  • Press Menu button.

  • Toggle across from REC Mode to setup

  • Toggle down thrice from camera to setup 1

  • Toggle across into sub menu

  • Toggle down from four times to Initialize

  • Toggle across again to the sub-menu

  • Toggle up from cancel to OK

  • Press center button to accept the OK choice

  • Screen changes and so press okay again

  • It should restart the camera

  • Opening on the 'Clock Set' screen

Toggle down to cancel and use the camera and make sure that you have the camera to flash, if it works try again in the Auto function. If it is still not working dont worry follow the steps again two or three more times, As this is related to a software error message and not a hardware malfunction. If it is working then don't forget to set your Clock.

Thank you !!

Sony DSC-P3 Zoom stopped working


i had that same problem. check your image size, the camera cant zoom if the image size is set to 3.1M or 2.8M(3:2)

how to change image size:
turn on camera and leave it in camera mode (picture taking mode)
press the delete/image button
change image size until camera zooms again
VGA gives the biggest zoom range

i hope this helps
it worked on my camera

The SMART ZOOM is not working - doesnt either come up in SET UP menu?


I fixed my problem myself. Simply read the top of the camera1.gif where it says TO USE SMART ZOOM SET IMAGE SIZE TO LESS THAN 2.8M
Then go to the very bottom button on your camera (there are three) and press it and reset your image size.Then your zoom will work.
Problem solved.
