I'm having a similar problem with a DSC S60: The camera will turn on in preview mode, but powers off as soon as I switch into STILL or VIDEO mode. I've changed batteries, done the full reset (remove the batteries and then hold the power button down for 15 secs.), and initialized all setting to factory defaults from the menu, and still get the same behaviour.

My camera keeps asking me to turn it off and back on again.


Start your camera to preview mode, not using the "on switch" Use the dial to set it to ISO selection, start it , IT should work, Now when your shutter is open see if it is dirty, If yes clean it, Now turn it off , And slightly press AROUND the lens shutter, "NOT ON THE SHUTTER", AND try if that solves the problem, I solved the same problem with my DSC-W55 like that only,

While taking a photo snap, don't see the picture on the screen. Screen is black. Can see the old picture on preview mode without any problem


Sounds like you might have accidentally pressed the DISP or DISPLAY button on the back of your camera. This manually turns the screen on and off to save batterie (you would then use the optical viewfinder in its place). Press this button once to see if it corrects the problem.

If the above didn't help, a stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open).

To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see this link for further info and a simple fix that may help.

Shutter


try this:

1.turn on yer unit

2.press the menu button(if it gives you the "turn power off and on again message just switch to play mode or preview mode and access the menu from there.)

3.select setup(the option with the toolbox icon)

4.select setup 1 (not camera 1 ayt?)

5.select initialize and select OK for every prompt.

you\'ll know if you\'ve sucessfully initialized the camera if it will ask you to set the date and time.



if this does not work.... i guess it would be better to have th unit checked by an authorized serivicer.
