Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-P92 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Power on for file viewing and setup, but not camera or video.....

When I press the power button, it comes on, but only if I have it set to the "Play" button which lets you brows your pictures; or if I have it on "Set Up"

If I switch it to the camera or the video options, it immediately shuts off.

The camera went several months without use, sitting in a drawer. When I tried to use it again, this was the problem I was presented with.

Any help would be appreciated.

    i have the exact same problem; camera only stays in the 'view pictures' or 'set up' mode, as soon as i turn to camera or video thing, it turns off.

    recharged the batteries; still same problem...

    Same problem, power on for file viewing & setup only. Shuts down when put on camera or video. Also noted that have a flashing red LED where memory card plugs in. New and/or different batteries make no difference. Since this 1st occured problem has escalated to not coming on for any setting, however LED continues to do a fast flash. Reset button has no effect on camera itself or LED, though LED ceases to flash as long as reset button is held down. Was such a good camera, how could it just up & die for seemingly no good reason?



    ANY HELP OR EXPLAINATION OUT THERE FROM ANYBODY?

I have the word Access come up on the screen and i can't take photo's i can access all other funtions on the camera. Is there a trick? OR A BUTTON TO PRESS HELP!


hi johnjones931,
the problem that you have is a common issue with SONY digital camera which has a retractable lens. The error is brought about by the inability of the lens to retract or protrude fully. You may try these steps ...
1. turn off the camera then remove the battery. Once battery is out you may press on the power button for 1 minute. This process is called power cycle, this way we are eliminating static electricity that may be causing the issue. After doing the steps mentioned put the battery back and then try to operate the camera. if it doesnt work try next step.
2. Have the camera on viewing mode (since you will only be getting the word ACCESS on the shooting mode). them press Menu button and look for the (SETUP) icon the looks like a toolbox . once the toolbox icon (SETUP) is highlighted press the middle control button to select it. Then go to SETUP1 (icon: toolbox with number 1) then select Initialize. This will reset all the stored settings on your camera.

THE CAMERA GOES DEAD VERY SOON WHEN IT TURNS ON. IT HAS GOOD BATTERIES.


Hi, I've scoured the 3 page manual and come up with this.:-
There is nothing wrong with your camera. The camera has a built-in power saving
feature that turns the camera off after 30 seconds of inactivity (default setting) to
conserve battery power. The auto off time setting can be changed in the set up menu.
Changing the Auto Off Time Setting:
1. Set the camera to Camera Mode.
2. Press the Menu button to display the main menu.
3. Press until the Setup is highlighted.
4. Press to enter the Setup submenu.
5. In the Setup menu, press to highlight “Auto Off Time”.
6. Press to enter “Auto Off Time”. Press to highlight the time you want.
7. Press the OK button to save your selection.
Hope this helps

The camera turns on when the power button is pushed the start up screen comes up then the camera shuts off. Battery is fine and can view photos on card. Help!


If you mean you no longer see anything on the screen. Try hitting the picture taking button slightly and the rear view screen should come on again. This is a energy saving setting and can be changed in the menu setup.

Hi,

Yes and in several methods as below listed. Since your posting refers to a generic problem for all digital cameras and not only an Olympus FE-230, some of the settings may have a different nomenclature or button name.
1. When you download pictures to you PC, rather than copy, select move; or
2. If you want to erase one picture at a time from the camera - press on the power button, then menu button, once menu is displayed, arrow down/up, you will be asked to erase the picture displayed, select yes/no by up/down, then press OK (menu button); or
3. If you want to erase all contents of the memory card of the camera - press on the power button, then menu button, once menu is displayed, arrow right, down to select card, right to select card setup, right to enter card setup, arrow down to select format or erase all, OK. Erase all just erases the files, format erases all and re-initialize the memory card; or
4. Remove memory card from camera and insert into a memory card reader attached to USB of your PC. The memory from the camera will be treated as a removable device and you can view, move, copy, delete/erase, format. This option seems to be most effective in viewing all contents under Windows Explorer with the view setting set to Thumbnail.
5. Connect the camera via the supplied cable to any USB port of your PC. The camera will be treated as a removable device and you can view, move, copy, delete/erase, format. This option seems to be most effective in viewing all contents under Windows Explorer with the view setting set to Thumbnail.

Specifically for an Olympus FE-230:
1. Press the < or > buttons to display the picture you want to erase;
2. Press the trash can button (bottom right);
3. Press the UP button to select [YES], press OK;

or

To erase all:
1. Press the MENU button to display the top menu in playback mode;
2. Select [ERASE], [ALL ERASE], and press OK;
3. Select [YES], and press OK

Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

- Scroll to the right until you are in SETUP 2
- Go down to Battery Type
- Switch it over to Ni-MH (for Rechargeable batteries)
- Select Alkaline (for Non-rechargeable batteries)
- Press MENU/OK for changes to be saved

If it does not work still, try to turn on again camera and immediately press on PLAY button to view pictures. Try to press again on PLAY button so you'll be on the mode to

If it still does not work, can you please try Non-rechargeable batteries (Alkaline) with your camera if it won't work with the Nickel-metal Hydride (Ni-MH) Rechargeable batteries.
