Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-S600 Digital Camera
For a while I was under the imperssion the rechargable batteries I bought were faulty, as the power woudl sometimes immediately shut off.
Well that ended when the power button stuck down for good! Of course the 1yr warranty has now expired and I am forced to make the repairs.
I contacted Sony about this problem, and even mentioned it seems pretty common, wouldnt it then be classified as a defect making having a warranty irrelevant, not so much.
I was a told a flat diagnostic and repair rate of $111 is what had to be paid to have the camera functioning again.NOT WORTH IT at all considering the camera is $199!! I was planning to upgrade this winter to the 8.1 Sony, not anymore! I wont be buying a digital camera from them ever again!
Anyone know of a cheap fix rate
I also have the same problem with my camera. the power switch is pushed down and won't turn on. it is stuck in the down position and i cannot use it. The camera was bought last August in New Jersy and is now with me in the Philippines

I have this same problem. I've had the camera for 3 years, and never had a problem until yesterday. The power button stuck down. leaving the camera on. Since I couldn't get it fixed, I decided I'd take out the batteries until I wanted to use it again. I put the batteries in 20 minutes later, and it wouldn't come back on.
I work for a photographer, so I took it in to have him see if he could fix it. He could not. He took the camera apart and said the shutter button and the power button are both connected to the same computer board. He saw no way to fix it besides sending to Sony. I haven't gotten an estimate yet, but my warranty and extended warranty have expired...I'm bitter about it!! They shouldn't have made that type of power button, and from now on I'll know to look for that.
If anyone gets a fix, let me know!!
