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?

make sure the batt is charging and working fine.check also the batt contacts.make sure its clean.insert batt to your camera.instead of pressing the power button, press the play button instead to power camera on. if unit turns on,might actually be an issue w/the camera unable to power on in camera mode.if it turns on initialize cam (p.75 of the manual).see if it works.if still wont turn on try using a diff batt (or if you have an optional ac adapter model#acls5k use it, attempt to power on cam to isolate issue w/power source).if batt or ac adaptor not available try to check batt with another cam if possible to test batt. if still unit doesnt turn on using a fully charged, diff batt, or using an ac adaptor,unit would reuire service. hope this info helps.thanks:)
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.
I am assuming that the power does not go on or it immediately turns off as it is turned on.
Try the docking station or the 3.3 AC adapter to the camera. Plug that in to live power. If you hear the lens motor (by default the lens is retracted to closed position when plugged to AC power), then the camera is operational. If not, there is power failure with the camera.
If the lens motor work, then try to turn the camera while plugged to AC power. If it turns on, then there is something wrong with the battery or with the chamber. If the camera does not turn on, then check the button board for a bad power switch.
Check the LCD closely under a bright light when you do this test. You may see a faint a flash of display that disappears. I have not figured out what causes this. This would mean that camera power supply is working but nothing is telling for the camera to stay on.
About the black and white pictures on the TV... not normal I think... I have never seen your camera model but a common thing can happen to any camera!!
Have you already tryed to connect the camera to your TV using a AC Adapter (D-AC8 in your case)?
Are the connections Ok? You're connecting following the manual instructions?
If you don't have it download it... :)
