Having problems with your Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W70 Digital Camera ?

Faulty Picture Setting Dial

\015 Hi, The camera is out of warranty and has an annoying fault. Otherwise it is fine and I would like to fix it myself.\015\012The small dial (top right on the rear of the camera) obviously has a fault, is highly touch sensitive, and adjusts the picture settings even if the camera is just shaken. \015\012I have removed the cover and the dial is a pluggable component that could be replaced. I have two questions:\015\0121. Where can I obtain a replacement dial?\015\0122. The connector ribbon appears to be a simple push fit into the connector. Can I just pull it out and push the replacement in, or is there a way to release the connector, like on other similar connectors on items like laptops?\015\012I would appreciate any help you can offer.\015\012Patrick\015

Hello,

\015\012I have the same issue with mine. I usually just leave mine on Auto but half of my pictures end of taken in Portrait which causes image problems.

\015\012They sell the dial on E-Bay for about 5.99 shipped. It looks pretty easy but I have not looked at the ribbon cable yet. I would imagine that if you do not see anything plastic like that would pop out (i.e. ribbon cables on many laptops) then it should just pull straight out.

The mode dial doesn't seem to work. The camera is stuck on the high speed sequential setting. When we select iauto, it takes one picture and then freezes. When we select the camera option on the mode dial, it takes 13-15 pictures in succession and then freezes. The pictures are taken without the button being pressed. We need to power off to change modes. The camera did work for a little while.


Base from the description of your problem what we can do here first to correct the problem is to reset or restore the camera settings to its default from the camera MENU. Then once you done that check if its working fine now. ... Olympus Digital Cameras

Continuous shooting I'm new to this so bare with me. I just got my Nikon D60 and I want to shoot pictures in continuous mode. I set it on manual, go into the menu and change it to continuous. I rotate the dial so it changes the shutter speed but when I take pictures it's just a black screen. As a matter of fact any time I try to take a picture in M it's just black. I'm hoping that there is just a setting I need to change and there's not something wrong with my camera. Thanks.


Hey man. Im not sure how new you are but basically i think your problem is you need to decrease the shutter speed to around 1/200-1/250 of a second and increase the apeture to around f10/12 and see if that works. If your operating at a high shutter s ... Nikon D60 Digital Camera with 18-55mm lens

I have a Samsung SL202 which I purchased because it was pretty much auto setting if I wanted. I liked the dial on the back to tell me what I was shooting. I'm not camera techie. I have been trying to get clear pictures of items to list on ebay. I have had a trombone and a suit jacket. I have tried most settings, different places in the house for light, etc., but they are never clear, the colors are not right, and the picture is too bright making the object look faded. I have then spent way too m

Lcd panel I've just bought a new canon eos 350d and the lcd panel will not show the image of what I am taking a picture of. I can take a picture, and display it back on the lcd panel but just not display what is in the viewfinder when I want to take a photo. Have I got a setting wrong somewhere or is the camera faulty? thank you!

My camera is brand new, got it just last week. I tried using the S mode on the mode dial and tried shooting with the fastest shutter speed, but all pictures turned out to be blank/black. The same happened for the P, A and M mode. May I know if it's a problem with my settings or the camera?


Photographing is matching the shutter speed and aperture to the ambient lighting conditions to create the effect you want. 'Auto'- and 'P'-mode should match those automatically. 'S' will choose the aperture and 'A' the shutter speed according to the ... Nikon D5000 Digital Camera

I purchased this camera months ago and hate it. I guess I dont know how to use it correctly. Any time I try and take pictures it seems like it take forever for the pic to take. By the time it clicks the subject has moved resulting in blurry pic. I have tried moving the dial to different settings and no change. Any suggestions?


You need to learn the "half-press". You press the shutter button half-way and allow the camera to lock in the focus (it will beep). Then, when the moment is right, you finish pressing the rest of the way for an instant picture. ... Olympus EVOLT E-410 Digital Camera

When I press the shutter button there is no picture taken and I get a code across the bottom of the screen '60 F2.8'. The number 60 varies sometimes but theother numbers remain the same. This problem is when I use every various setting from top dial .

Blurry pictures I've had this camera for almost a year and everytime I want good pictures (vacation, birthdays, xmas) I'm disappointed with the quality of my pictures. So many of my pictures turn out blurry. And sometimes they'll look fine when reviewing on the camera, but when downloaded to my computer, the quality is poor. Some people say they keep their's on the auto setting, I find I need to keep mine on the nighttime setting to get decent pictures. Any sugggestions with settings, etc to hel

Blurry Pictures I have had this camera less than a year. I took it to the beach 2 weeks ago and the camera was fine. Crystal clear pictures. Then, on the last day of vacation, the pictures started coming out blurry. Even when I am preparing to take a picture the view finder is blurry. The camera is on auto focus and it is set to the shoot and click setting (little green camera). It didn't get wet at all. Anyone know if there is a setting that I may have touched or is this an internal problem.

Blurry pictures My camera has two settings on the front. One is to take still pictures, such as flowers, the other setting is for action shots. My camera will not switch back to the action setting. There is a switch on the front of the camera. I have switched it to the right position, and it won't work. I have also taken the batteries out of the camera and switched it again. No dice. This sucks because I am missing a lot of good pictures of my kids. please help.

Blurry pictures Using a point and shoot digital camera, it was set on night mode by mistake. Pictures turned out blurry. The snapshots were taken inside at night using flash in the camera. Probably because in night mode, camera was setting depth of field wrong. So using flash and set in night mode was the problem.

I have a Canon Rebel XS that I just purchased a month ago. I have taken very good care of it. I took several pictures yesterday, but when I turned it in this morning it wouldn't take a picture. It flashes rapidly, but won't focus. The only setting I ever use is the auto focus setting, and I've checked to make sure it was still set, but still it won't take a picture. I am out of town and I don't have my manual, so I can't troubleshot on my own. :( Can you help?

Canon A560 camera problem - the images are overexposed. I checked the exposure setting, AWB, and all other settings and they are all normal. There is an exposure setting where I can set to + or - 2, but setting it to -2 does not help much. Outdoor photos are almost completely white. There is some detail in black objects. Indoor photos are overexposed. Flash pictures seem OK. The picture on the display is OK. I compared some macro photos taken a few weeks ago with macro photos now. The good photo
