    I took a photo at school, and when I got the camera back to have a look the camera refuses to turn on. I've recharged, taken battery out for days, taken MS out and pressed reset and still nothing.

Did you try plugging it into your computer using your USB and then hitting power - sometimes this recharges the camera. Make sure you have new batteries in the camera when you do this and hold down the on button while you do it. If that doesn't work, than I think it's time to go somewhere to get it fixed or for a new camera. Good luck

Seems like batteries don't work, but . . .

I think the problem was either dirty battery contacts or a broken connection somewhere with the battery terminals. I'd cleaned the contacts a number of times with a pencil eraser before, but nothing worked. This time, I just did it again and paid careful attention that both contacts on the battery door were protruding properly--could be that one of the contacts got pushed back such that it wasn't making proper battery contact. All I know is that it's working now, perfectly, after sitting for a couple of years on the shelf. I really like this camera.

With new batteries already put in--no power

Are you using rechargeable batteries, and have tried lots of different batteries? Also, sometimes rechargeable batteries fresh out of the package can be dead or have very little juice. Just a thought...Hard to say that's it though if you were having the same thing happen before...

My sony cybershot wont turn on!!

The symptoms sound like a failing battery. The camera is shutting down due to insufficient power during startup checks. How old is your battery? Rechargeables really aren't meant to last more than a year or two.

Now I realize that Sony batteries are outrageously expensive. But thankfully there are generic alternatives such as:

1= Use rechargeable battery cells and must be fully charged.
2= Check battery terminals in camera battery compartment. Must be cleaned and shiny.
3= Sony camera DCS-S600 won't charge batteries through USB cable plugged in PC. You need external battery charger to charge battery cells.
