Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-S600 Digital Camera
I have a Sony DSC-S600 cyber shot digital camera. Whenever I click to go from view pictures to take a photo or record a video, the screen goes blank/black. I can view pictures but not take new ones or a video. Also, the shutter blades don't fully open or close whenever the camera is in "take a photo" or "record video" mode. If I am just viewing old pictures the camera functions normally. Please help!!! Thanks.
I found out the hard way that you should never use alkaline batteries in a Digital Camera. I thought my camera had a fundamental flaw (power kept going off whenever I tried to take a photo or record a video and the shutter blades half closed) even though it was only 2 months old. I nearly wrote it off but all along the problem was that I was using alkaline batteries, which incidentally were enclosed with the camera in the box!! Once I switched to NiMH (Nickel) batteries the camera worked fine and the fault completely vanished! These NiMH batteries are avaiable in most electrical shops i.e currys/comet in the UK. They must be charged before use. They are more expensive than alkaline batteries (£8-£9 for 4) but as they are rechargable they last a long time.
