Perhaps you have an empty battery?
Just remove the battery and try charging it on an external charger. When it is charged, try again. The camera should start with retracting the lens. Perhaps you again should power down and remove the battery for a few seconds after that, but just try it.
Switching of a camera causes it to start again, like a cold boot from a computer.
Monitor your battery, because if the camera shuts down very soon after that, perhaps you need a new battery?
THIS LOOKS LIKE THERE IS A PROBLEM WITH YOUR SWITCH. TAKE THE POWER SUPPLY OUT AND GIVE THE POWER BUTTON A FEW HARD PUSH .IF THIS DOES NOT SOLVE THE PROBLEM THEN THE BUTTON MIGHT HAVE TO BE CHECKED BY A TECH REGARDS.
how old are the batteries and how many times they were charged without being fully drained can cause a short life for the battery. Try a new battery-fully charging it properly, but dont charge it again till it goes off by itself completely. If you have a wall charger, plug your phone in. If it stays on that way, check your 'power save' settings. That can also make your camera shut off. Try these steps first and see if it changes the 'battery' from being empty to full and stays on. hope this helps
Defective ccd imager!! There's an internal loose inside ccd imager. Sony will replace this ccd imager free of charge. Year 2002 up to 2005 released units has a factory defect ccd imager. the company recalled those units and replaces with a stronger version of ccd imager.( they are still doing it). check it out.
As you said there are SMD fuses which have blown off. Difficult to trace at user level. Approach a near by free lance service center for tracing with a multi meter.
YOu can safely replace this with 0 ohms SMD resistor as SMD fuses are not available in small qty.
If you need spare parts or service manuals do let us know.
CCD or backlight problem?
althought your camara is not listed, try to contact them to get a disgnostic.
