Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-S40 Digital Camera

1 Answer

I have had this camera for a couple of years and I love it. However, recently, I was taking pictures and my battery went dead (I thought). So I bought new batteries and replaced the old ones. The camera will power on, but turn itself off immediately afterwards. Or it will power off after a few seconds. I tried replacing the batteries again, but no luck! Can someone help me figure this out? however I can veiw existing photogrhaps in camera but the very movement i try to take new photo camera got off

Actually u are a victim of BAD CCD see this link below

http://www.imaging-resource.com/badccds.html

but good news is all brands are doing this free of charge repairs sony, fuji, canon , olympus all, some models have service advisories issued and some are not noticed as all do not complain so u can get it repaired free even if u are out of warranty and even if ur camera is not on service advisory list tell them abt BAD CCD and they will understand and take ur repairs free of charge do not accept any charges for repairs as it is the manufacturing fault of CCD units tell them u know about it !

pls dont waste time see the service centre in ur area and email or give them a call see the link below for support in ur area

2yrs old. Went thru 3 sets of batteries to get 20 pictures. Dead again. What`s the story?


Sounds like you have a short in the wiring. This is repair shop stuff, or buy a new camera time. Usually, if it is a point and shoot , it is not worth sending for repair as you'll playas much as a new camera is worth. I would look for a new camera, personally. Good luck.

Well I have had my nikon D3100 now for a year and half and use to completely loved it. But a couple of days ago it started acting up. It randomly will not respond when I try to take a picture. Some times...


Check your manual. I suspect you are also getting an ERR message in your settings screen. This happens to me occasionally. There is an explanation for the ERR message in your manual. I usually am able to fix mine by turning the camera off and on. Sometimes, but rarely, I have to remove and reseat the battery. The manual says if it happens frequently you should contact Nikon support.

I have had the Nikon D40 for about 4 years. It has performed wonderfully and I love it. Just recently, the battery suddenly died (in one hour it went from 3 bars to one) and after several failed attempts...


cscolantoni: I have the same problem. I called APS, a Nikon approved repair company and they are going to test it. They said it was very rare and thought it was an internal problem and not the battery. Could run up to $200 to repair.

Carry spare alkaline batteries - just in case...
Does the same symptom happen with alkaline batteries?
Lithium Ion batteries are 1.2volts
Alkaline are are 1.5volts
Rechargeable Alkaline batteries are 1.5volts

Perhaps you should switch to Rechargeable Alkaline batteries if the symptom goes away when you use alkaline batts...

Camera doesn't turn on or do anything


I had a similar problem. Mt battery was dead but showed a charge when I put it in the camera. See if you can borrow a battery from another owner or camera shop and try it.

Camera batteries drain quickly


Open the battery door and check the contact between the camera and the batteries. Most often then not there is just a bad contact and it's ruinning your baterry life.
Make sure that the contact are well placed and that there is no rust or dirt build up around there.
