1st thing to do is to read the manual. There is a comprehensive manual on the software dis that came with the camera in addition the the quick start booklet. Fow the camera to operate it needs batteries,and memory card installed. then switch on and pop away. But get to grips with the book it tells you all you need to know.

The door of sony cyber-shot DSC-S500 which keeps battery and memory card does not close properly.How can it be fixed


Yes, It can be fixed if your good hands on Exp. However, When the camera hit the floor did it dent the lip/edge surrounding the batter door. If so it may not be fixable, and you may be better of getting a new one, there cheap enough! Let me know the cond. post a picture.

My pict from s500 show white lines, but that is nothing problem when use to recorder/cam record & candleligt fiture.


Unfortunately the shutter motor is broken, so normal pictures will be over-exposed. If you use it as a recorder or candlelight function the shutter mechanism doesn't need to work because the shutter is always open.
Fix that problem is very difficult, unless you get a new lens block.
Hope this helps,
Pablo

Sony cyber shot dsc-s500 is not turning on..


I'm not sure if this will help but you might want to try removing the memory card and powering it back up. If the camera stays on than there is probably something wrong with the card. Try a new card and see if that helps.

How do U upload photosfrom my computer to my sony cyber shot DSC-S500


I'm not sure that you can upload photos from the computer to the camera. i have never seen a camera you could do that with. The only way you might be able to do it is if you are using a sony memory card in your camera and you took the memory card out of the camera and put it in a memory card reader connected to your computer. Put the photos from your computer on to your memory card and then put the memory card back in the camera.

If you open the camera up, whick I know is an intricate task, and take the screen down but don't unplug it, at the right bottom their is something that resembles a watch battery, if you can figure out how to get it off and find a replacement it will be fixed... This battery serves a a sort of memory power, even though you have batteries, this battery keeps the memory for the camera's software, so inturn without it the camera is dead in the water. this is fixable!
