Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-P72 Digital Camera

2 Answers

Cyber shot dsc-p72 will not power on

We've replaced the batteries with fully charged ones, when we try to turn on the camera the green power light comes on for just barely a second, if you try again it will do the same thing, but if you try a third time - nothing happens unless you remove the batteries and put them back in, then the same thing happens again.

This problem is inside the camera. Either power supply or main board. Something, most likely a leaky capacitor or faulty IC, is causing the battery sensor to see too low a voltage and shut down. It could also be the sensor itself.

Confirm if you're using a fully charged Battery with the Camera. Check if you're able to playback the images normally. Then, try to reset the Camera by either pressing the Reset button when the Camera is in ON condition or by removing the Battery and pressing the Power button for 1 minute and reinsert the Battery. Unfortunately, if the issue persists your Camera requires service.

DSC-P72 only operates on AC power, not batteries


Check to see that the batteries have not leaked in the battery box. If they have clean out an leakage of the battery on the battery box contacts.

It could be that the battery isn't holding a charge anymore if you are using rechargeable batteries in you camera. Most of them have a short life to them. If you can get a hold of another one, see if that solves that problem.

Turning my camera on


What batteries are you using? If they're rechargeable - charge them. If they're not, replace them (with rechargeable NiMH batteries if possible).

Power/lens Problems


it seems that the lense movement is jammed. Have you dropped the camera? just have a close look from the front side of the camera, does the lense assembly seems to be pressed or moved aside by some extra preassure? if no physical disalingment is visible may be some sand or dust partical is obstructing the movement of the lense assambly. needs a help from camera repair shop.
