Please check battery terminals of DSC-S500 camera, hope you will see clogged/ black marks there.
Clean terminals with alcohol or some thing and make it shining. Hope problem will resolve.

My dsc s500 digicam have no power


Your problem may be due to weak/worn out batteries or corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, chances are that your batteries need to be replaced because they're just too worn to properly power the camera. And then, of course, there's the possibility that your camera may have a problem that requires professional repair.

DSC-W12: the batteries last only a few minutes before they're drained. Camera draining batteries very quickly.


If its a Lithium ion battery(similar to a mobile phone battery) then open battery compartment, clean battery contact points and try again after recharging the battery. If the camera uses AA batteries look for the current ratings on the side of the battery, generally digicams need batteries with more than 1200 mAh (I use a 2000 mAh for my Canon SX110 IS digicam). This current rating may vary for different manufacturers.

If you open the camera up, whick I know is an intricate task, and take the screen down but don't unplug it, at the right bottom their is something that resembles a watch battery, if you can figure out how to get it off and find a replacement it will be fixed... This battery serves a a sort of memory power, even though you have batteries, this battery keeps the memory for the camera's software, so inturn without it the camera is dead in the water. this is fixable!

My camer won't turn on


Does the lense extend when you power it on in "snapshot"mode?
Could be the switch is sticking. These cameras use concave cup button that mash on gold foil on the circuit board. Could be a bad switch. $$$$$ costly.
