    I also have the problem that the power button is stuck. The button is stuck inside the camera. I cannot use my camera. I need an easy solution. Or should I just buy a new one?

    My Cyber-shot DSC-S600 Digital Camera power button is not working. My husband opened the camera and saw that the wire was damaged and he felt the repair described by Guest would not suffice.

    I am fond of this camera, it was a wedding present, can anyone think of where I can take it for a cost effective repair or how I could do the repair with step by step instructions.

    Thanks Manda

The power button is nothing more than a molded piece of nylon that can break. It's an easy fix if you feel like taking the camera apart which is quite simple. It is rather intuitive and one can figure it out as you break it down. The piece can be repaired by buying a thin 5 cent nylon washer at the hard ware store and gluing a new piece onto the broken piece with epoxy. You'll notice a little "bump" on the bottom of the piece which will make contact with the shutter. You can build a small piece of nylon washer onto it in the exact same place. Reverse the breakdown to assemble it and presto!!... a repair for 5 cents!!! Google "how to disassemble a sony dsc s600". Beware...the capacitor can hold up to 300 volts and can bite you. Hope this helps.

Loaded a cd to upgrade firmware, firmware would not load. eject button would not eject. read manual, says to push eject at the same time you plug in the electric cord,still would not eject. Any...

Please try in this way.

Disconnect power.
Connect power back, and keep REPEATEDLY pressing the eject button while you connect. If still no ject press power on button while you keep hitting the ehect button. You need to press eject on the unit, do not use the remote.

If that does not work, then the unit must be taken apart.

Lens stuck out

The lens has probably got something in the retraction mechanism that is stopping it retracting. This can be something as simple as sand or grit or as a result of a drop or knock. In most cases the camera will need to be stripped apart to remove the lens assy before it can be repaired. This is best left to a professional camera repair shop.

Canon EOS/Rebel XT won't power up

Joe, this happened to me, just tonight... I got a new CF card and stuck it in, turned it on and one CF card flash. Completely dead from there. I found one of the CF card pins bent over, shorted out the socket and blew the mainboard fuse. I took the camera apart, found the fuse (labelled K) about under the set button area) I bridged the fuse with a bit of solder, straightened out the pin in the socket, put it all back together and it's working fine. The fuse is under the right side shield cover, it's labelled with a letter K. There is another fuse on the power inlet board (below the shutter button) and it's labelled 'P'...

Sorry, the button can't be restored one broken. You can put on a new button or top panel only. Contact your local Sony service center. If they ask too much, I can sell you the top panel assy or change it for you. You can contact me at

Shutter button stuck

Some have used compressed air, blown directly into the button. this should dislodge anything that is holding the button down. Also check and see if the button is cocked in the body, you can pry it back into position and it should pop back up. It is a 2 position switch, first detent is to hold focus and bottom out is shutter release

Can not trurn camera off!

Does your on/off button appear to be stuck? Might there be any dirt under it? if you gently shake the camera, does the button appear "loose", and is it "unresponsive" when you press it? (i.e. doesn't move) It might be that the "behind the scene" parts are stuck in the down-position, but not the part of the button you see. if button appears stuck, you might try to give the cam a gentle knock with a scredriver shaft, but be careful! You just want the button knocked loose.

UNIQUE PROBLEM: Camera stuck on Movie mode

It's a small world. I have an Ixus V2 on the bench with exactly the same problem. The sliding button on the camera mates with a switch soldered to a flat ribbon cable inside the camera. There are two small teeth which move the internal switch left ot right. What's happened is one of those plastic teeth has snapped off the external part and now it can't push the switch anywhere. If you pulled the camera apart you could push the switch into either record or review but that's it. It will stay in either of those positions. Which is a bummer. The only way to fix it is to buy the complete flat cable ribbon with switch attached and boy it's a long cable. Except for sending it away for repairs (expensive) buy a damaged one on Ebay and do a transplant. Just make sure it's suffering the same fault.
