Having problems with your Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-WX5 Digital Camera ?

Hi, when I click on the button to view pictures the camera switches itself off. Also if I click on the tool box menu the camera switches itself off. Also if I connect to my PC it doesn't see the camera - the camera flashes USB mass storage and then switches off. Please can you help?


Answers :

Have you checked the batteries on the camera? Weak batteries will shut the camera off any time ther is a call for power that exceeds the charge left in the battery.If after you change or charge the battery and you are still having this issue let me know and we can go from there.
\012Please use Sony Cyber-shot batteries for DSC-H2 model camera
\012If your camera keeps shutting down and not allowing any pictures to be taken, use the 3 pixel setting. It may allow you to get at least some use out of the camera. After reading numerous reviews on this unit and comparing the performance of mine to that of a friend who also has it, I have to say that SONY made a slew of defective cameras and this should have been a recall. Some cameras seem to work fine, thus the good reviews. Others, and there are many many of these, shut down unexpectedly, won't work well on the 5 mega pixel setting, take terrible pictures (especially in low light) and generally aren't worth the money you paid for them.
\012What I soon learned was that it was running low on battery power and needed to be off most of the time or you would go through batteries like butter. Even when the camera is off and loaded with new cells it will quickly deplete itself. So you have to turn the thing off if you aren't about to shoot...this makes catching that special shot almost impossible, especially since when you do turn it on you then have to wait and wait and wait for the shutter to snap. Forget anything with low light

When I switch it to take a picture I just have a black screen with some of the menu showing.
