    I HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM

  • Derek Madge Dec 26, 2008

    I have been very happy with the camera though I've sued it only a half dozen times. It's jsut out of warranty now of course. I went insert the recharged battery, ready for Christmas, and it was a bit difficult to fit in but I managed. Later, when I tried to turn it on, the lens extended as normal and then it jsut shut down! Checking inside I found the kittle blue push button that should eject the battery had broken off and been lodged inside the battery compartment. Carefully removed the platic but can't get the darn thing to turn on! Missed Christmas and will miss photos of my first grandchild's first Christmas with me! GRR! I can't locate any interlocking switch and have run out of ideas.Does anyone know about interlocks or other solution? I'm ready to go back to film.

This is embarrassing because I usually know what I'm doing with this stuff! I don't know why, but all it turned out to be for me anyway, is that the battery had lost its charge very quickly. I still don't know why but it's been fine since! I still ahve to cover the battery compartment door with tape but other than that, it's working as expected. Of course, I figured that out after I'd run out and bought a substitute!

    I coincidentally ran into the same symptom with a different cause, in someone else's camera. The lens went partway out and stopped. Sometimes it withdrew and shut down. I determined that there was a tiny bit of grit on the lens barrel. A few shakes forward, with camera very firmly in hand, eventually cleared the debris and it worked fine after that.

One thing to test before going to repair, make sure you are using a fully charged and correct battery for your camera.
If so, the camera will need repair. This is a common problem and can be fixed. Teleplan Camera Repair does a great job and their blog is also very informative.

When i turn my sony dsc w30 on....it says turn power of then on..


Please make sure that the battery is fully charged and there are no dust particles near the lens which stops retracting. Check if you are able to access the Menu. If yes, then, please Initialize the camera under Main settings 1 Menu. If you are not able to access the menu, you may have to power reset the camera by removing the battery and press n hold the power button for 1 minute continuously. After that leave the button and insert the battery and check if it helps. If the issue still persists, your camera will require service.

Dark LCD screen


I have a sony cybershot DSC-S650, the LCD was very dark and could not see anything except if I pointed it at a bright object, everything else worked ok. I could take pictures but could barely see them in playback as well.

I took it to Sony authorised repair outlet and was told the CCD was damaged, they charged me USD $55 to repair it (in Quito, Ecuador)
