My Sony camera wont shut down. if i turned it off it will automatically turned on. What can I do?

Check the on / off switch, if it is locked in one position. Could be a defective spring, or a bent or dent.
Looks a strange error to me.

Can I use memory stick duo adaptor with memory stick pro duo on sony dsc s85

The DSC-S85 works with the original Memory Sticks, 128MB or smaller. Even with an adapter, you'd still be limited to 128MB.

My Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-S85 Digital Camera wont switch off. I can turn it back off but it comes on again.

I had exactly the same problem. I checked the shutter swithch but it was working correctly so it was just melfunctioning of software? I played around, taking video in different resolutions etc and eventually it came back to normal. If you can not charge the battery, use rubber band(s) hitching it between lens and power switch, snug the switch stay in pushed position. You then should be able to charge the battery to play the camera. Good luck.

When camera is turned on it makes several beeping noises then turns off when i turn my camera on, it keeping beeing, then it turns off, whats's wrong with it and what should i do?


Whats happening is there is some sort of problem with the lens, it could happen in many different ways such as sand or dirt in the lens gears or impact damage.

A couple solutions would be to either buy a defective camera online and make one good camera from the two if you can do that sort of thing yourself, or secondly have it repaired by somebody.

Don't bother trying to send the camera to Sony (though you can call them and verify what I'm about to say) because they will want $150+ to do the repair for you. Parts are not cheap to buy from them.

Hope this helps,
