My Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-S85 Digital Camera wont switch off. I can turn it back off but it comes on again.


I had exactly the same problem. I checked the shutter swithch but it was working correctly so it was just melfunctioning of software? I played around, taking video in different resolutions etc and eventually it came back to normal. If you can not charge the battery, use rubber band(s) hitching it between lens and power switch, snug the switch stay in pushed position. You then should be able to charge the battery to play the camera. Good luck.

SONY- CYBER SHOT W170-VERY LATE RESPONSE - NOT ABLE TO CLICK PICS


Sometimes with these newer cameras that are coming out now the memory card is very important on which brand you use and what the manufacturer recommends . This causes the camera to act weird turn on then off or show blank screens and the shutter to stay extended or so on. It may or may not be the fix but try that in mine i had too much SD gig it did not support and then when i checked manufacturers recommendations they said up to 8 gig and "their brand" and that they never tested off brands to work or not! I hoped that helped.

Your Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-W170 came with a cord that had a little flat plug on one end and three separate plugs on the other end.  The single plug goes into the bottom of your camera.  The end that has three plugs has

(1) USB
(2) video output
(3) audio output

(2 and 3 are for hooking up to your TV)

If you connect the USB end to your PC and the single, flat plug into your camera, this acts as the USB cable.  There is no USB plug on the camera (for just a USB cord).
