Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W50 Digital Camera

Battery run's flat when switched off

I recently bourgt a sony dsc-w55, and when i switch the camera off, a light flashes underneath the power button and sometimes when this happens i can only turn it back on by using the display button and not the power button, but this flashing is continous when the camera is switched off resulting in the battery completely running flat and i cant turn the camera on at all..... i have been through the process of re-charging the battery many times, but the same thing happens over and over again. i have spoken to the techincal team of where i purchased the camera and they were extremely unhelpful.... so any suggestions would be gratefully received thanks

Sony Technical support may elicit more information I suspect the it is a circuit fault- which will mean a replacement camera or repair offer- which will be costly. Unless the camera is less than a year old in which case the seller is obliged to replace it.

Hello i have a sony dsc-w35/w55 camera and when i switch it on i get access then it bleps and says turn off power and on again but still cannot get to operate .Can it be fixed?


Hi,
Due to malfunctioning of FLASH UNIT assembly this message appears"turn off the power and on again". A very common problem in these models. Just replace the COMPLETE FLASH ASSY and camera will work fine again. The detail of part is given below:

1- For DSC-W55 Part Number Description

A-1231-877-A ST-133 BOARD, COMPLETE
2- For DSC-W35

A-1254-671-A ST-133 BOARD, COMPLETE
Thanks.

I have a cybershot DSC W55. When the power button is switched on the lens extends and the "access" message shown on screen. Also amber light is flashing above screen. After a few seconds I get a message to power on and off again. I\'ve tried switching on and off a few times, removing battery pack and memory card, but nothing seems to be solving the problem.

Replace Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W55 shutter button


Don't throw your Sony Cyber-Shot camera away!

We found a website who has created an entire comprehensive photo instructions for the Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-H Series Shutter Button Installation.

They also have the Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-H9 Shutter Button Installation Instructions as well!

Please note that we STRONGLY recommend using a flash discharger. This is for your safety and also for your camera's safety.

Hope this helps to get your camera working and start capturing memories again!
