Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-P8 Digital Camera
My Sony DSC-P8 camera will not turn on. When I press the power button, the green light indicating "On" flashes and the camera beeps once. I also noticed that simultaneously, a red light located next to the battery flashes (visible when the battery flap is open). When plugged in, the charging light is on indicating succusful charging. But regardless of whether the camera is plugged in or not, pressing the power button only produces the beep and quick flash described above. I have tried pressing the reset button. Any suggestions? Many thanks!
Hello, reset in this case is not a solution. Maybe your lens is stuck. For further info please contact me at LIVE session. Best regards, Arpi

The Red indicator flashing in the Camera may be the Access Lamp or the Power Lamp. The Access Lamp is located below the Control buttons and the Power Lamp near to the power button. If the Access Lamp is flashing, it indicates that the Camera is accessing the Memory. Do not remove the Memory Stick or Batter while the Access Lamp is lit.
If the Power Lamp is flashing, it indicates that the Camera is turned on. If the Lamp is lit in Red it shows that the Battery is not having enough charge. Insert new batteries or charged Nickel-Metal Hydride batteries to resolve the issue.
You may also try power resetting the Camera. To power reset the Camera, remove the batteries from the Camera and then press and hold the POWER BUTTON of the Camera for 15 seconds and then reinsert the batteries after 1 minute and check if the Camera works normally. If the issue persists, service may be required.
