Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-S500 Digital Camera
When the camera is switched on, it says cybershot and immediately switches off. The camera is less than a yr old and it has new bateries and there is a 4 GB mem card in it..
I had the exact problem. After searching online for multiple solutions, the following worked for me... Press and hold the power button while at the same time use your fingernail to pick and pull at the lens assembly. Pull the lens assembly at the circular ring gap between the housing and the barrel of the lens itself. It only took me about 3 to 5 tries to get it to work. It's been working fine ever since. Good Luck.

My camera has the EXACT same problem. It just says Cyber-shot with a black background for 1.5 seconds then immediately shuts off. I have a 2.0 GB memory card and it still does the same thing!

That`s not going to help it.
My camera is doing the same thing and I have been using my 4gb memory stick with it for the past two months.
My camera still shits off even with out my memory card in it.

The DSCS500 Camera is not compatible with the a 4GB Memory Stick, it's only compatible upto 2GB.
Please try using a Memory Stick which is 2GB or less capacity.
