Camera won't stay on

I have a DSC-S500 model bought about 9 months ago. Now when I turn it on, the access lamp is lit and it turns straight off. I have tried changing the batteries with no improvement and also to download pictures with no success. Any ideas?

I have sony h55 model camera. i insert the battery in inside of camera. but not working. Inside lame is lit. what's Problem?


Yes, if during initialization or other major function the power is interrupted, it can wipe out the internal logic for the camera. If that has happened, and the camera won't even power up, there is no known repair that can be performed other than through a licensed repair facility.
However, if your camera does power up and you damaged the flash card only, then it may be able to be low-level formatted, then re-formatted by your H55.

When i try to turn my camera on it flashes a small red light and then it won't turn on, how do i fix this?


Hi,

The Red indicator flashing in the Camera may be the Access Lamp or the Power Lamp. The Access Lamp is located below the Control buttons and the Power Lamp near to the power button. If the Access Lamp is flashing, it indicates that the Camera is accessing the Memory. Do not remove the Memory Stick or Batter while the Access Lamp is lit.

If the Power Lamp is flashing, it indicates that the Camera is turned on. If the Lamp is lit in Red it shows that the Battery is not having enough charge. Insert new batteries or charged Nickel-Metal Hydride batteries to resolve the issue.

You may also try power resetting the Camera. To power reset the Camera, remove the batteries from the Camera and then press and hold the POWER BUTTON of the Camera for 15 seconds and then reinsert the batteries after 1 minute and check if the Camera works normally. If the issue persists, service may be required.

Thanks

Clean battery terminals inside camera battery compartment, this model tends to get battery terminals clogged and causing no power up problem.

Samsung DLP TV, no picture, has sound


Try replacing the ballast next. Its the small circuit board directly underneath the lamp housing. You can access it through the lamp door. If the ballast is overheating or has a leaking capacitor, the tv won't stay lit for more than a minute or two.

Battery Problem


I bought a SONY DSC-S750 3 months ago. Since last week, when i turn the camera on, appears the message "for use with compatible battery only". The battery came with the camera. The camera was bought in a big store in Philadelphia. I WILL NEVER BUY A SONY CAMERA AGAIN. I already tried to reset, tried to remove the battery and the problem persists.

Cyber-Shot DSC-S500


We had similiar problems with ours until we started making sure the camera was kept warm when it was shut off. For some reason, it and the batteries don't like the cold...we were able to extend the battery life if we kept it covered when we weren't using it.
