Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-W5 Digital Camera
My camera will shut off after a second if it's on any setting other than view. So I know it's not the battery b/c I can view photos on the screen just fine, but when I try to change to any other setting to take a photo or video, it shuts right off. Looked at the manual and tried to initialize (from the view setting since won't stay on long enough to do it from any other setting), i went to 'initialize' and pressed 'okay' and then the lens came out about half way and then the camera shut off. I'm somewhat relieved b/c before, the lens wouldn't even come out - so at least it's possible. But now when I try to turn it on, the lens moves at little out and in for a second and then camera shuts off again.
I was having the same problem and tried several set of new batteries. Finally I purchased a set of high performance lithium batteries and the camera works on them. Before trying to get repairs or buying a new camera try spending $15 on the best batteries you can find.
