Pink sony cybershot DCSW55

When I insert the battery, the little red light beside the battery begins to blink. Then I have to turn the camera on using the 'review' button and once I turn the camera off, the power button and the red battery light continue to blink on and off until eventually it drains the battery. Please help!!

    when I insert the battery, the little red light beside the battery
    begins to blink.Once I turn the camera off, the power button and the red
    battery light continue to blink on and off . What does the red led by the battery indicate ?
    Also.....the flash does not work anymore. The camera was dipped in the pool
    for a nano did get wet. I took the camera front and back plastic cover off and used a blow dryer at a distance for 2-3 hours.....turning it at different angles so the warm air would pass thru it. I monitored the temp with a remote temp probe. kept the temp around 95 degrees/dryer 2 feet away.
    After putting it back together.....everything works....but the flash.
    The "red" light comes on....the picture snaps....but no flash. Checked the flash settings and the flash is in the "on" mode.
    Any input on what is wrong.....did the cap for the flash die? Did the bulb die? Let me know.....Bob Aldworth

My camera will turn on, then when screen is on for about 5 seconds, the screen turns off, and the red light beside the SIM card slot starts flashing.

Take out memory card form camera and turn it On, if camera stays On and shows normal view that means memory card is bad and causing problem.
Put new memory card in camera and take pictures.

There may be still some moisture inside, remove the battery again, open any doors in the camera and put it in an airing cupboard or something similar and leave it for a couple of days.

Meanwhile, have a look at your user manual, check out what the red alarm light means, it may give a clue.

Then try again.....................Good luck.

My cybershot dsc s730 Camera wont start. all I did was but new rechargeble batteries in and tried to push the power button, only thing happening is little red light on bottom next to erase button. Please...

Take out memory card from camera and try to turn On camera. If camera turns On that means memory card is defective.
If camera still does not turn On then check new batteries and make sure both are good and last is camera main board is bad, this is not repairable part so new camera is good option.

My camer won't turn on

Does the lense extend when you power it on in "snapshot"mode?
Could be the switch is sticking. These cameras use concave cup button that mash on gold foil on the circuit board. Could be a bad switch. $$$$$ costly.
Interested in selling it?
