I am in France on vacation from USA and am really bummed as My Sony Cybershot DSC-W370 will not close. The display says "Turn the Power off and on again". I've done this several times with no results. I am staying at a remote villa with no phone service. Can you help me via email? I have had many Sony cameras in the past and have preferred this to my Canon since it is so hard to carry. As I recall previous similar problem was resolved by a reset hole I pushed a pin into but I see no reset

I have a sony HDR-HC1e camcorder. It works perfectly until I change the battery or switch between mains and battery, it then refuses to start. Not even a hard reset will start it. Leaving it with no power for a hour results in it restarting correctly when battery reinserted although sometimes loses clock setting. I've checked the internal cell and it reads about 3V.

Hard reset of Nikon s8100? My menu button isn't working at all. The only one that is working is the round scene-selector button on top...and even that one stops working after I press the shutter button (which doesn't respond either). I've tried removing the battery for a few hours and replacing it, but that didn't help. Is there a way to remove the backup battery as well? Is there a button or a trick to doing a "hard reset" without having to use the menu??
