My S5000 is 4 years old already ~ how sad.....I always use a AC adapter for close-up pix of items I sell online ~ then transfer to a zipfile... Lately when taking the pix as I move the camera around it is shutting down. My husband replaced the tip on the adapter and I am still having problems....Any ideas as to what the problem could be?

Perhaps you have bad batteries? Connect it to another power source such as an AC wall outlet and use your power adapter and see if this helps. If it does not or you have already tried this then your camera may need to be serviced.
Hi! This is what I need you to try.. If you're using a 5v ac adapter to charge the camera's battery - please hook it to the camera WITHOUT THE BATTERY in it. The 5v ac adapter can be an alternative power supply.
Turn on the camera - check if it would do the same thing - like lighting up, making a noise (attempting to extend the lens) and closes. If it does, the camera needs to be sent in for repair.

If you are using a photoframe dock2 or camera dock series 3 to recharge the camera's batt - use its 5v ac adapter. It will work with the cam. Make sure, the batt is not in it to check the cam's condition, isolating the possible interference of the battery.
If the camera works fine - when the AC adapter is attached, no battery in it - consider buying a new battery.
V610 is a very nice camera, but it was manufactured in 2006. If you have not replaced the battery yet, it might just need to be replaced. Even Li-ion rechargeable batteries wear out eventually - it can only last up to 300 charging cycles.
If you're using a batt that is less than a year old, the cam might just need to be sent in for service.
Possibly not worth repairing. You may have ruined the internal parts from over-voltage. Any thing has a value to the owner, thus it is up to the owner as to how much he is willing to pay on repairs to fix the item. This applies to cameras of any kind, cars, houses, and so on.
I would suggest to look up the value that your camera has been selling for (on a site such as Ebay). How old is it? If it is over a couple years, the value may not outweigh the cost to repair. That will depend on the condition and other factors.
If the internal parts have been burned out, then the cost to replace a main board ,probably what you need, may be far more than what you want to pay. Since this is a 6.3 mpxl. camera, I would guess it is over two years old, and will not bring more than $100.00 if sold in good condition with all the things it had when new. A suggestion is to sell this camera as parts on a site like Ebay, and get what you can. You may choose to sell all or just the camera.
Mystical Chicken, all that needs to be done is to open up your player and re-flow the solder connection where the ac adapter goes. It is a fairly simple task, given you have used a soldering iron before. If not, just send it to me and I'll fix it.
I found a replacement adapter at LCDPAYLESS.COM it will arrive soon I will log-on as soon as I get it to let you know if it works. I never ordered anything from them before hope it works. Also i will keep my receipt and seen it to protron to have them refund my money
