Power button stuck down on my sony cyber shot dsc s600


Possible that this is a mechanical failure and the switch is broken or out of place. Remove the battery and check the charge, if this seems fine then replace and tap the camera upside to see if the buttons resets.
If not the camera must be taken out, try to open ONLY if you have the correct tools and do not try to open otherwise to damage the unit.
Best option is to take an opinion from Sony for estimation.

Try doing a power reset:
Solution
sp.gif sp.gif Cyber-shot cameras nowadays have a built-in rechargeable battery for retaining time, date, and other settings. Since the built-in rechargeable battery is not removable, current Cyber-shot camera models can only be returned to the original factory settings by pressing a small RESET button on the camera or by using an Initialize option in the menu.
Older-model Cyber-shot cameras (prior to the year 2000) do not have a built-in rechargeable battery and do not have a RESET button or Initialize option in the menu. These cameras require a manual power reset.
IMPORTANT: To determine whether or not your camera has a RESET button or Initialize option, or for other model-specific information to complete any of the steps in this solution, refer to the operating instructions supplied with the product. Manuals are available online in the Manuals/Specs/Warranty section of the Sony® eSupport Web site.
Follow the appropriate procedure below for your camera.
Using an Initialize option in the menu
Since Cyber-shot cameras have different menu system layouts, refer to the instruction manual specific for your camera model.
Using a RESET button
  1. Locate the RESET button on the camera.
  2. Use a pointed object (like a ballpoint pen) to press and hold the RESET button for 2-3 seconds.
  3. After 2-3 seconds has elapsed, release the RESET button.
Performing a manual power reset
  1. Turn off the camera.
  2. Remove the battery pack.
  3. Remove the button-sized lithium battery.
  4. Allow the camera to remain without power for 30 seconds.
  5. Reinsert the button-sized lithium battery.
  6. Reinsert the battery pack.
  7. Turn on the camera.
If your camera is experiencing an issue and the issue is not resolved by performing the appropriate reset procedure above, then service may be required. The Sony® eService Web site at http://eservice.sony.com/ can assist you in obtaining service from a Sony Service Center or locating a Sony Authorized Servicer.

Stuck power button on my Sony cybershot dsc-s600


Hi!
Yes, power buttons do break on these cameras. Contact your local Sony service center and see how much will it cost to replace the top panel. If they ask too much, feel free to contact me at toms.safranovs@gmail.com
I work in a Sony service center.

Lens stuck open


I have to agree with one of the comments previously posted. I too had a Sony DCS-S700 and the lens was stuck open. Whenever I turned the camera on, the Sony Cybershot logo appeared and dissappeared, turning the camera off. I noticed the lens was crooked, so I moved it in the center direction and the camera worked again.

The small nylon power button contact lever breaks easily on these camera. For those of you that are capable you can try to repair the lever but I have found this to be quite difficult and usually breaks after the fact. This requires opening up the unit and removing the dark grey L-shaped button piece and then repairing it. But, for those of you that just want to get the camera working again quickly with just a little inconvenience follow these instructions.
Drill a small hole in the top of the camera as indicated in the picture here. It will be right on top of the circuit board button cotact for the Power button. Just use a paper clip and stick it into the hole and depress it once to turn the camera ON. Same for turning in back OFF. Easy fix.

Power button stuck in down position


First, a question, was the camera exposed to a sticky substance like Coke? This is a very common cause of buttons sticking. Another possibility is that the switch on the circuit under the cover is jammed and needs to be either repaired or replaced. This is something that only a repair shop can handle. You cold take directly to an authorized Sony repair shop. There will be a contact number in you owner's manual.
