Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-S600 Digital Camera

Won't take pictures

I bought the Cyber Shot and had it for about a week.  It worked great, now it will only work in Movie and ISO modes.  It will not take pictures in any other setting.  Is there a way to reset the camera?

The strob flash wont work for night shots

Please when you want to shoot a picture in dark condition and you want to use a flash, don't put the camera in the night shot mode. In that mode the camera will choose the highest ISO, the lowest speed and the widest aperture, and won't use the flash. Please check the manual for every mode, what it does and what it not does. Your camera is in perfect state and does what it supposed to do.

How I can sapture a picture in ISO mode??? what is the purpose of capturing aphoto in ISO mode??

ISO is not really a "mode", every photo you take has an ISO rating; it's one of the three main ways of controlling how light or dark a photo is. (The other two are shutter speed - how long the sensor is actively capturing for, and aperture - how wide is the hole (aperture) that the light passes through.)

You can think of the ISO rating like a volume control - it's how sensitive the sensor is. At ISO 100 the sensor is at its least sensitive - you get the smoothest picture but you need lots of light to do it. At ISO 800 and higher, your sensor is most sensitive - your camera will take pictures in lower light, but there will be more 'noise' - meaning the speckled effect you get on digital pictures.

It's similar to the volume control on a radio. When you have a strong local station you can turn the volume down, and you'll still get a great quality sound. But if you are trying to pull in a distant station, you turn the volume up and put up with a bit of hiss just to hear what they're saying.

Just the same with a camera. When you have strong sunlight, you can turn the ISO down and you'll get a great picture. But if you're trying to pull in a dark photo, you turn the ISO up and put up with a bit of speckling, just to see the image.

Hope this helps.

Flash stopped working


The flash in the Camera can be enabled to Flash Forced ON by pressing the Up Arrow control button on the Camera. Press the button continuously to select the desired settings.
Make sure that the Camera Mode (REC MODE) is not set to Burst or Multi Burst.
Flash will not work when the Camera is set to ISO High Sensitivity mode or Twilight mode in the Scene Selection.
The flash will not work in Movie Mode also.
When using the Landscape, snow or Beach mode, set the Scene Selection to Flash Forced On.

This should resolve the issue.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Noisy pictures = High ISO in almost all cases. Select ISO manually (select a manual mode where you can control the ISO) and set it to the lowest possible value. To avoid camera shake, place the camera on a tripod or another sturdy surface; or use the flash

Pictures have a purple hue to them Cyber-Shot DSC-P52

I suspect that the color is fine in the screen, if that’s true I would check the “White Balance.” This control is use to compensate for different light sources. The electronics will respond different for sunny or cloudy days and for incandescent or fluorescent lamps. I suspect that it was taken out of AUTO mode. I find that AUTO works well for most people in most situations.
Select photo or movie mode press menu, select WB, select AUTO.

Sony cybershot dsc-s600

Hi, here is a temporary solution that might work for you as it did for me:

1: turn on the camera in picture/movie review mode
2: turn the screen off (not the camera)
3: change from review picture/movie mode to take picture/movie mode
4: turn the screen back on.

You should now be able to take pictures and record.

Hope this is of some help.
