Having problems with your Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-W7 Digital Camera ?

Mode dial doesn't work.

\015 The mode dial on my camera doesn't work. It turns but it doesn't show the options, like viewing my pictures or to record or any of the options on there. It just stays on the camera mode. I can still take pictures but I can't view them or record videos. I haven't dropped it or anything, it just started to do this recently. I've tried taking out the batteries and putting back in and I've also tried to reset or initialize. It still doesn't work. Please help! Any kind of advice would do. Thanks!\015

I have exactly the same problem as kae_ryn, it just happened and tried the same ways to "fix" it.\015\012Not dropped it yet but I might throw it at the wall lol.\015\012Shame though, it has been a very fantastic camera and has taken loads of great photos. Might get a new one similar as it fits into an expensive waterproof housing.

On my D50 the COMMAND DIAL has stopped working so shutter and apertrure cannot be set - but - normal photographs cxan be taken using 'AUTO' or MODE settings on the MODE DIAL. Only P,A,S,M modes cannot be used. Otherwise all functions of the camera work well and photo results are good. The camera has NOT been dropped or jarred.

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

Hi, I have a Canon T2i Rebel. When i put the camera in "M" (totally manual), the image doesnt appear in the LCD screen. Everything else works fine in the monitor, but it is as if the lens where covered with the cap. But it´s not, and acutally all the other modes work fine. Only in the manual mode the image doesnt show, and the pictures also appear completely black. The menu shows sometimes something as if the exposure were less than -2, but even though i change the values for everything hig

You must have a software glitch because the flash is supposed to be in the auto mode when the selector is in auto, unless you manually turn the flash off and the flash should go back to auto every time the camera is turned off and back on. Here's a w ... Canon PowerShot A720 IS Digital Camera
