Sony DSC W7 control dial defect


\015 The sony DSC W7 7.2 mega pixel digital camera has a defect with the mode setting dial. The physical position on the dial especially in the P, auto and playback mode sometimes does not correspond to that on the LCD. I have to move the dial a bit to get to the mode I desire. Is this a major problem and will it deteriorate in time further? Camera purchased in singapore and presented to me in Goa India.What is cost of repairs including replacement of part if required?\015

For what it's worth, I have the same camera with the same problem. The reason this is not repairable is that the mode selector dial was plastic riveted together making disassembly impossible. If I had to guess what has happened internally is that the selector knob has gotten dirty from constantly switching between play and camera mode and the contacts are now bridged partially between the camera and P mode, causing the camera to spontaneously switch between the two. A few things you can try are running the knob in a few circles hoping the metal shavings/dirt get worked out of the contacts or disassembling the camera and making sure dirt hasn't worked it's way around the knob putting pressure on the switch.

As far as replacement of the knob, unfortunately the bottom of the knob was plastic riveted to the entire power button/knob/chrome top plate across the camera, so replacing just the knob entails replacing the whole top plate of the camera.

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

Sony DSC-S700 when turned on sometimes the screen is blurry and pink toned with blurry grey lines running accross the screen. Photos turn out the same. Happens intermittently. Have changed batteries, checked to ensure the dial on the top was centered on Auto Adjustment setting. Doesn't matter what setting display looks the same: pink and blurry with the lines. Checked all the settings in the menu. Not sure why it does this...worried it may be a board problem.

DSC P51 Trying to decide whether my camera is suffering from the defective CCD imager problem. I currently have a black image at all times, as if the shutter is closed. I removed the MS and reset the camera which didn't affect anything. On the Sony site it says to take a movie clip with sound then replay it. When I did that, it didn't replay the image and I heard no sound either. Does hearing no sound still constitute a prob with the CCD imager?
