Question about Sony Digital Cameras
My battery for cybershot dsc-s780 died while the lense was still extended and now the battery is fully charged and when i press the power button the green led lights up and cybershot appears on the screen but then powers down straight away
Some of these cameras that have a lens that extends use gears to extend the lens. The gears can strip or get clogged with fine debris and jam the lens. Usung good quality rechargable batteries NOT ALKALINE will usualy have the power to drive the lens.
Ask yourself, how many cycles do you have on the pack? could the pack be weak and not power the camera fully?
Have you tried pushing firmly in on the battery while you power it up? If the camera will not power on with the door open, try and fold a small trip of paper and sit it between the battery and the door. This might push in on the battery enough to better the connection and solve the issue.
If the battery is fine then you may have a lens problem. The lenses can be jammed easy, dropped or an impact when extended is all it takes.
