I turn camera on, it turns off! by itself?
camera shuts down while I'm taking pictures?
I did some searching and found that with some of the Sony Cybershot's the type of battery also makes a difference. Most sites I read specifically made mention to the cause being a difference between the type of batteries (e.g. Alkaline vs Lead). The common fix was making sure you were using Alkaline batteries. However, this was from searching for just when it was turning off very shortly after turning the camera on so I'm not sure if that will be useful to you as well in the current state you are in.
Might need new batteries like Bob said, or the energy saver thing is shutting it down.
DSC-W150 has a fairly standard video mode. Fine mode, you can record video at 640 x 480 with sound when you hit the ten minute mark - a restriction that did not exist in previous Sony cameras. A memory card high speed is required to use the method of thin film quality. Two other resolutions are available. Standard mode also records a 640 x 480, but at a choppy 17 frames per second. There is also a 320 x 240 mode available, but the rate of 8 frames per second, make it look like one of those stop-motion films of Tim Burton. As is often the case, you can not use optical zoom while recording a video clip. The image stabilizer is available. http://www.thesonyworld.com/dsc-w150-fro...
I have the cyber-shot DSC-H100 and I have no idea what is happening or how to fix it. I press the on button and it turns on just for the screen to say 'Cyber-shot' and for the lens to extract for a split second and it shuts down again. Do you think it could be the battery as well? I have had this camera for almost 3-4 years.
I just had this problem with our camera and found the solution in another thread. Even if your batteries are brand new, make sure they are very high quality batteries, not just standard Duracell or Energizer. Put in 4 brand new standard batteries, kept shutting down. Dug out 4 fancy batteries (I think they were Duracell long last?) Worked perfectly.
Hello everyone… I’ve just stumbled on this thread… wondering if you can help me with my issue with the Sony Digital Camera ZV-1? It would be great of you could!
I love the camera, and most of the time it works fine. I’m using it to produce yoga videos from my home studio. So the set up is all very fixed with few variables…
• the camera sits in the same spot on it’s tripod on my windowsill.
• the room is always the same moderate temperature
• I plug the camera cable into the mains - so I guess it isn’t a battery issue.
• I have a huge memory card
• the camera is new
• I film 90 minute videos - most of the time it works perfectly! But…
• There is a dreaded intermittent fault which is presenting a real problem. Every once in w while, for no discernable reason and with all the same fixed settings that work fine, the camera decides to turn it off in the middle of the class I’m filming.
• I’ve read through the manual, through Help… I just can’t find an explanation for this and it’s really throwing a spanner in the video delivery I have promised my customers.
• the only workaround I can find to ensure I can film the whole class on every occsion is to run my old camera at the same time as a back up. Given the price I paid for my new Sony ZV-1 I don’t feel this is an acceptable solution.
• I’m wondering if there is a fault in the camera… it simply triggers the power off function erratically and inappropriately under normal temperate conditions.
• can you suggest any possible fixes?
• should I try returning the camera under guarantee because it has an intermittent malfunction that screws up my work flow?
Would really love some help.
