Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-S500 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Frustrated in Colorado! Camera won't power on :(

I received the camera for Christmas. It worked great until yesterday. It wouldn't turn on, so I plugged it into the computer, & changed the battery. When I depress the power button, the button lights up, the LCD screen flashes on but then that's it. When I let go of the button, all is dead again.

Any suggestions???????????

Thanks a bunch, Georgianna

    The terminals didn't appear dirty, but I cleaned them anyway. Didn't make a difference though.



    Thanks for trying, stupid camera! :)

Hi,
If you are talking about Sony DSC-S500 power problem, please clean its battery terminals as it seems clogged and you will see them black.
Please clean them with alcohol and terminals should be shining like gold.
Thank you.

My Power Shot SX130 IS wont turn on... I dont know why, yesterday was working and all the sudden today I tried to Power On and doesn't do anything. I changed the batteries .... HELP!



Things to check first for a camera that won't turn on are battery contact points, and micro switches that are located on the battery and memory card doors. Troubleshooting tips on other things that need to be checked may be seen here. These tips won't work for every case, but they're worth a try.

My Nikon Coolpix s550 won't turn on despite having charged the battery. I went out and bought a new battery from Best Buy today and tried to get information on what might help but, surprise, the guy...


refurbished items sure have hidden defects/problems that later contributes to malfunction. i think, one of its internal chips(techy things inside) has worn out... probably needs replacement.. i suggest look for a technician.. if you're living in the philippines,it's easy to find someone. you can save your lovely camera and lil money of course.

My kodak c813 digital camera will not turn on


I bought this model several months ago and it was working great up until Christmas time.  For some reason it just stopped working.  I couldn't get it to turn on OR sometimes it would turn on after several attempts.  I kept changing the batteries and sometimes that would work, but it was more or less random successes.  I found this link on FixYa : http://wwwuk.kodak.com/global/en/service/batteries/batteryDigCamChart.jhtml?camera=C813
I was using generic batteries (Philips) which I bought in bulk from a discount tech store and these batteries were working in the camera since I bought it.  The batteries were new; just generic.  By coincidence I ended up buying KODAK branded alkaline batteries from the same store.  I replaced the older generic ones with the KODAK batteries and the camera came back to life!  I'll leave it off for a day and see if it turns on tomorrow.

Display screen is blue


My daughter was SO SO excited when she received Hannah Montana Disney Pix Digital camera from christmas she cried. She cried MORE when she took her first picture and didn't see anything on the display screen it was completely blue! NOTHING! $40.00 down the darn drain and my daughter feelings crushed on Christmas. I couldn't afford to purchase her anything else. Called support that 1-888-800-0507 something like that,,,,,it took me twenty-one minutes to tell me to return it. WHAT! They said its a defect! WHAT! When I returned the camera they didn't HAVE any, now she is really UPSET!

Never again,
Parent

Last year I bought my mom a digital camera for christmas. It worked great for about 2-3 months. Since then it is speratic, it will turn on let you take a couple of pictures then shuts down all by itsels....


Hi! Most digital cameras require outrageous amounts of power to work properly. Be sure to use only high quality, hi power ni-mh rechargeable batteries. Check for Sanyo Eneloop or Duracell. Sometimes we think the camera is broken, but in most cases is only insufficient amout of power. If you can't find the before mentioned batteries, look for 2500mA NI-MH type rechargeable batteries and a proper charger. Good luck!
