Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-S500 Digital Camera
When I try to turn the power on, it shuts off immediately. "Cyber-shot" appears in the window, then it beeps twice and turns off. I've tried new batteries and rechargeable batteries. Neither worked.
I got this from the Sony website. I haven't tried it yet. I also have an email in to them.
Follow this procedure to troubleshoot if the power will not turn on.
IMPORTANT: If model-specific information is required 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.

I posted earlier, prior to trying what Sony had suggested. I tried it and at first it didn't work, however I didn't have an AC adaptor so I hooked the camera up to my laptop with a USB cable. First try nothing. I then took the Memory stick out and put it back in (while I was connected) and the next try the camera turned on. However, it's not my camera and I'm unable to get it to do anything except be on, it's like it's frozen, so there may be other problems. BTW, the edit/playback setting is the arrow in a box.

I had the same problem. I read on another site that you should remove the battery, hold down the power button for 60 seconds, and then put the battery back in. It seemed to work for mine tonight.

SOURCE: power on n off
I also had this problem with my DSC-S730. Take the batteries out and hold the power button for 10 seconds. Get new name brand alkaline batteries. Warm them in your hands and insert them properly and close the battery door. Then hold the camera upside down so the batteries make good contact and press the review (>) button.
