Having problems with your Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-V1 Digital Camera ?

Next step for the rebirthing of my DSC-V1 ??

\015 Hello Obertelli,thank you very much for your reaction.Meanwhile I could use a battery from a cybershot DSC-P10 which uses the same battery as my DSC-V1 but......No sign of life ...;-) NOTHING happens when I put the battery inside the cam and touched the ON button.Is there maybe something as a "reset" or...or ...or...? ;-) Thank you .kind regards.\015

Hi Pat,

There is a reset button which is recessed on the underside of the camera, next to the battery cover. You'll need something like an unbent paperclip to press the bottom and it resets the camera back to factory presets. This reset includes setting the the file numbering system back to zero so if it works you'll need to go into the menu and manually set your file and folder numbering to something which won't clash with earlier photos.

The only trouble is that the camera needs to be powered up for the reset to work, so you'll need to plug the charging lead into the camera to power it up.

If this fails, then your camera has sadly become a parts donor.

DSC-V1's in excellent condition regularly appear on auction websites but take care: many will have a CCD just waiting to fail so either ask if it's been replaced by Sony (making sure the seller can supply proof) or get a DSC-V3 which is very similar but does not have the risk of a faulty 5MP CCD. The DSC-V1 is still a better camera though as it handles better and has less image noise.

I've owned my Sony DSC-T100 for a couple of years now. I really have enjoyed the camera but off and on it starts to vibrate, it has a humming sound as well. the pictures comes out fuzzy and blurred. Doesn't do this all the time but seems to get worse over the course of time when I use it more frequently. used to get better after I would take one picture, then it would settle down and do one ok shot, the next one vibrates, next one ok. Right now no vibration. What is going on?
