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.

I keep getting the message: Turn the power off and on again. Just bought the Cybershot DSC-W370 tonight and it worked fine, until the battery was charged. ???


Why don't remove the battery? First, switch off the camera then remove the battery. Wait for 5-10 mins then put the battery back on and charge it straightaway. remember to leave the camera off while charging. let it charge full then unplug and switch the camera back on. let me know if this works for you.

Switching off as if battery is depleted when the battery is newly charged


I called Pentax and they said it's a known problem and the lens needs to be re-synchronized. They said this is usually caused by dust in the lens.

I have to send the camera to : -
Pentax U.K. Limited
Pentax House
Heron Drive
Langley
Slough
SL3 8P

It's a free repair if you bought the camera less than a year ago o/w they will send you a quote for the repair.

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?
