The last time I was in Staples, they had three different webcams for under $20 Most major camera makers have abandoned the webcam ability. You have to have special drivers and the camera firmware must be able to handle webcam duties. Very few camera manufacturers bother to write that type of firmware anymore.

Look at the supplied software and try the Yahoo/etc software but beware that most cameras are not built to run as a webcam. The designs are for size and wieght so the cameras tend to overheat and expire. If they don't tout the webcam feature, then you know why.

Sony DSC-W5 camera and the LCD screen is blank (white)

Remove the Battery pack from the Camera then press and hold the power button for 30 seconds.

Next, reinsert the Battery pack in the Camera and try to turn it ON. Make sure that the Battery pack is fully charged. If the LCD remains white then the LCD screen needs to be serviced or replaced.

DSC w5 has a spot in every picture

Assuimn there is nothing on the lens[I would not think this is the case as it would not show as a distict spot Not ne fora DIY or a repairshop this is a a failure of the CCD. Depending on the age of the camera and model this may qualify for replacement, as there was a reported CCD issue at one time Either that or Sony may offer a replacement at a good discount.
