DCR-TRV350 thumb wheel broken?

I saw you had a review on this camera on the web, and thought you may be able to answer a question I have about setting the USB streaming.

I press the menu button, turn the thumb wheel to move the cursor on the menu, and the set-up menu shows choices including USB. When I press the select thumbwheel, nothing happens - is it supposed to? If so, I reckon I have a repair problem. If not, how to change the USB streaming to ON?

And if I want to double-check that the thumbwheel is working, any simple unmistakeable test you can suggest?

When you push the "select thumbwheel", did you push the rubber piece that is surrounded by a silver circle or did you actually push the thumbwheel in side-ways?

The rubber piece is just a stopper and is not a button. To select, you have to actually push the thumb wheel in.

When you push the thumbwheel in on "USB STREAM" it will show an ON/OFF menu for you to turn it on and off.

Thanks for the fast reply.

Yep, I was pushing the thumb-wheel.
looks like a repair problem.
Any other way to double-check if the thumb-wheel press is in fact

See if you can access and change other functions. Even if "USB Steam" is disabled in some cases, the select should still work for other functions.

be very ginger with the tripod connection - it is weak (thin) in this area of the case and breaks out rather easily - this will cost you another $269 - Sony Engineers work for the Sony repair facility I am sure
