Power problem cybershot DSC-S650

My problem is it won't turn on. I have been very careful with my camera. When I turn it on it just shuts off. Any resets for this camera? Should I just get a new one?

    I have a similar problem. After using for 10 to 15 minutes taking several shots then it wont stay on. Several hours later it seems okay.

    i was uploading pictures and when it was done and i unplugged the usb from my computer, my computer just turned off and restarted. and then i tried to turn on my camera but it keeps displaying "cyber-shot" for about 2 seconds and then turning off. i have tried putting fresh batteries in it but it wont work. i've had this camera for about 2 years, and have only had this problem once before (but it never turned off my computer like this)

Camera says lens error and shuts down immediately. Lens won't close.

Here are some troubleshooting steps that you can try that may (or may not) correct it. They only seem to work for less than 40% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty (or repair cost approaches that of the camera), they're worth that try. Some of the later steps do involve some risk to the camera, so carefully weigh your options before deciding to conduct them:

Camera comes on. screen shows OPTIO AND AT BOTTOM V1.01 THATS ALL- none of the funtions work. camera won't shut offf. have to open battery cover to shut off.

If you can get into the menu system, find "reset" in the set-up menu. If not, remove the card and every button....leave it alone for 20 minutes...insert the card and then the battery...turn it on.....this is called a "hard reset" and sometimes works.

I hope you have solved this problem if not there is two things that have happened to me one was that I had unlocked the lens and it turned a little which shut off the communications between the camera ad lens. The other is where the gold contacts between the camera and lens became slightly dirty with a hazy this is easily fixed with a DIY. using a pencil eraser gently polish the contacts between the camera and lens both sets of contacts, be careful not to get dirt into the camera or lens when you are doing this. Don't use a puffer or any air.

Camera shuts down when 'zoom lens' is used.

Hi there please follow the steps and let me know the result.

1. Ensure batteries are fully charged & clean the battery connector point in side the battery compartment.

2. Look carefully between the lens and the camera body for any sand, dirt or any damaged etc.

3. Try turning the camera with the lens facing down and shake to dislodge anything stuck

4. Try removing batteries and memory card, wait 5 minutes and refit the battery only.

5. Now turn on camera( with out card ) and see ,if working then fix the memory card & again turn on the camera. If working then fine .
Otherwise format the memory card and fix back in camera again & try. Make sure before format the memory card take a
back up all photos in your computer then format. If no luck then reset or restore the camera setting by pressing Menu key for 2 sec ..
in not done the press both Menu & self time key for 2 - 4 sec.

GE A730 camera cuts off

Hi doctech:
Turn on the camera, then go to the menu and set the time to shut off to 5 or 10 min. These settings are usually set to 2 min. or less. This setting is to let the camera "go to sleep" or simply shut down to save battery power.

You can also try the following:
Go to the set up menu, find the RESET ALL and reset all the settings to factory.
Then go back to the setup menu and set the setting as you want them making sure to set the shut off time to more than 2 min.
