Having problems with your Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W100 Digital Camera ?

Camer scrolls through modes all on its own! sony DSC W100 digital camera

\015 Can anyone help solve this problem. When I switch my camera on it wants to change its mode all the time. If i put it on any mode, say video, it will scroll randomly through all the modes the moment I touch the camera body (very strange). This is the same for all modes and picture playback too. It makes taking a picture very difficult. \015\012If any can help I would very thankful.\015

Answers :

There is no reset button on this model Sony
DSC -W100, the gray thing near the battery / memory is the acces lamp. Reseting the camera using function "initialize" from the menu it seems to work.
Very good poss that camera needs mode dial switch assembly.Especially if unit was subject to liquids near the mode dial .part # 147966811 for silver and 147966821 for black model..First reset camera by pushing reset switch should be around batt compartment and or memory stick area.

Hi, I have a panasonic Lumix, DMC-FS5 digital camera. When I turn the camera on and it's on 'photograph' mode, a message keeps appearing after a couple of seconds saying: "please turn camera off and then on again". I get the same message everytime and am unable to take any photos or even access the menu options. There are no problems when the mode is set to 'playback' mode. The images are still there and I can scroll through, as well as access the menu.

Hi, I have a Sony DSC-W100 cybershot camera that the mode switch has gotten flaky. If you just touch it, it switches modes and if you rapidly change modes back and forth from one end of the control to the other, it may work for a while and then gets flaky again. Acts like the switch has dirt in it. Can I buy the switch? Clean it? or should I just toss the camera? Jim Lofgren in Redmond, WA


Hi!A common problem with the W100. It can be taken apart and cleaned, but unless you have experience in things like these, I would recommend you getting a new mode switch. You can get one from here http://hop.02.lv/UQI work for Sony. ... Digital Cameras

Sony DSC-W100 I own a sony dsc w100 and it has been taking great photos. Unfortunatly I switched it on today and it no longer seems to be a ble to focus. I have cleaned the lens and the little circular piece of glass (think this bit measures distance for focus) but my photos are still blurred. The camera seems to permenantly have a little icon saying 'saf' in the bottom left corner of the screen. I wonder if this icon is the key to the problem and what it means? Is it a safe mode and if so how d

Hi welcomejee, I read all your solutions regarding the digital camera Sony DSC N2. I really have to thank you for your precious Some of the problems are very similar to mine: After the camera fell on the ground from about 2 meters in off mode the lens would come out and immediately back in 4 times in a row. After that the lens is back in, a beeping sound comes up and on the display it is written to "Turn the power off and on again". Of course that does not help at all. The lens is opening


George, this is most likely a lens issue, and more precisely, probably a stripped gear when it fell. You will have to disassemble the entire unit to get at the lens assembly, and will probably be a professional by the time you get through! ... Digital Cameras
