Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-S600 Digital Camera

'Access' screen? Everytime I switch my camera on, a black screen with 'Access' on it comes up and the camera then switches off. This only happens when it is in the taking photos or recording videos modes, and not in the playback mode. Can anyone help?

Re: 'Access' screen?

The (Access) in the screen refer to one of this problem, the lens mechanism is unable to start due to plastic broken parts in it or dust, or battery poor power, use a rechargeable battery over 1200 uAh of power

Re: 'Access' screen?

Common problem with this model. sorry. An interesting thing, is that the Access screen should be displayed when updating the camera's firmware. Maybe a firmware update would be able to wake the camera out of this mode? Would you try it and let me know? post again if you can't figure how to do the firmware update. Good luck ;]

My camera lense won't go in. Everytime I switch it

Your batteries are too low.
When you switch on the camera, the lense go in. Then lense comes out fully. Then, if the batteries are low, lense goes in and camera turns off.
But if the batteries are too low, camera turns off before the lense retracts or even before the lense comes out fully.

Hi, I've never had any problems transferring photos to my laptop until now. Suddenly, nothing is happening. I switch the camera off, connect it up, switch it back on again and the 'on' light comes on but...

Maybe you should update or reinstall the software? Does your camera act like it's connected (like black screen, special light, no access to menus, etc. etc.)? Check if there's a problem with your cable.

Hi, when my camera switches on the lights flashes a few times quickly. The intro screen comes on then the screen goes black. It totally freezes and the only way i can put it off is by removing the battery!...

Hi, I solved the problem, it appears the memory card was corrupt. When I removed it and switched on the camera it worked perfectly. Not sure why this happened!! I'm just glad my camera is working again!!

Problem .

If you open the part that gives you access to the battery and the memory stick you'll see a small button that says 'reset'. I'm actually not sure what it resets, but you could give that a try.
