P73 switching off!

The camera tuns ON fine and display says "Access" then it switches off. If I start the camera in Setup mode it will remain on, but anyonther mode that requires the lens to move, automatically switches the camera off! Any ideas? Thanks

This is most likely a weak battery. Be sure to charge at least 14 hours before using rechargeable batteries. If alkaline, replace with fresh ones. The zoom motor uses more power that any other features.

Sony DSC-P73 auto power off in picture mode


Hello!

You may try using any another compatible Battery pack in the Camera to ensure if the issue is not causing due to the Battery. Actually, when the Camera is switched to the "Picture or Camera" mode then the power consumption increases spontaneously. So, if the Batter is not holding sufficient charge to cater the power need of the Camera in the Camera mode then it'll automatically turn off. However, if the issue persists with spare Battery also then you may try resetting the Camera to the original factory settings by pressing and holding the Reset button for 30 seconds. Otherwise, it's required to get the Camera to resolve the hardware issues.

The only functioning modes are the picture viewing & set up modes


Have Sony DSC-P73 with exact problem. Only turns on in SETUP mode and when switches to all other modes camera shuts off usually with lens extended. Have tried new batteries - new memory stick - new everything and nothing helped. I just took out the batteries and attached the AC ADAPTER and all works perfectly now so problem is with either batteries - battery compartment or battery connections. As long as you do not need a "PORTABLE" camera, using AC Adapter solves this problem :)

Your camera has problem in Lens mechanism. If Lens doesn't open properly, camera will not show picture at all. There would be Loading Motor section demaged in Lens mechanism and it needs to be replaced to work camera OK.
Now come to blue screen in playback mode, This model doesn't have internal memory, so you need memory stick/ card to see previously taken pictures.

Time set and LAP


With the radio turned off and displaying the time, hold the MODE switch until the time display flashes (about 2 seconds). Release the MODE switch then quickly, use the TUN (up) to set hours, TUN (down) to set minutes.

No display in record mode on Samsung VP-D31


Sounds like you may have a problem in the auto iris curcuit or the auto settings was switched to manual and the lens is closed. Check first to see that the lens is setup in auto mode. If it is then the auto iris as i said before is bad or stuck closed unless the small caps in that curcuit went bad as they always do after a few years. Good Luck
