Sony Cyber-shot DSC-S500

My camera was working fine earlier today ( a zoo trip). When I got home and tried to turn on the camera to upload pictures,but it would not power up. I tried different batteries,still will not turn on. As far as I know there was no damage on the trip home. I keep it in a camra case when not in use.

Re: Sony Cyber-shot DSC-S500

First listen closely to the camera as you turn it on. Does it make any sound at all? If is makes a grinding or whining sound, something is jammed, probably the lens. If there is no sound, you may a blown fuse. This is rather tricky soldering to do and if you are not familiar with this sort of work, I would not suggest it be attempted at home.

Do i use usb to charge sony Cyber-Shot DSC-S500?

No. The DSC-S500 uses standard AA batteries, either disposable alkalines or rechargeable NiMHs. If you use rechargeables, they must be charged outside the camera using a separate charger.

It's not a webcam. It was designed to store images (and videos) to memory, not to stream them live to another device.

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!

Sony DSC-S500

you are right it has defective mechanism,  a stucked mechanism is present. camcorder are smart it can detects error and shuts down itself for safety. earlier models dominoes the defect if the user is not quick enough to react when something goes wrong with the camera. You need professional service to fix it.
