Reset a Sony Cyber-shot Camera


The Sony Cyber-shot line consists of digital cameras that take still photos. Photos are stored on removable SD cards and the camera is powered by a rechargeable battery. If the camera is not functioning properly, a hard reset may correct the problem by restoring the camera settings and menu options to the factory settings.

  • Slide the power switch to the "off" position or let go of the power button.

  • Insert the battery and close the compartment door. Turn the camera back on.
