Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-S500 Digital Camera
My cybershot DSC-S500 will not turn on. When I push the power button, the screen lights up and says, "Cybershot" and then turns back off. It is less than a year old. Any suggestions? Thanks
I had the same problem...my camera used to switch on and display "cybershot" for a second or so and the red light at the lower right corner will blink and switch off immediately. To fix this replace your batteries with fresh alkaline batteries. I had lead batteries and although they both deliver 1.5v, there is a difference in the current (amperes) it seems. After I replaced with alkaline batteris...my camera is fully functional again. Hopefully this works...

That usually means it's out of batteries.

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?
