Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-P200 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Will not power off

I've had my Sony Cybershot DSC-P200 for two years now. About a week ago, it lost its ability to power off. The lens retracts into the camera and it turns off for a second, then it turns immediately back on and the lens comes out again. I suspect something spilled in it. I took the covers off the camera and cleaned the components with a little rubbing alcohol, but it still does the same thing. Any suggestions?

Re: Will not power off

This seems to be a common issue with this camera as several have been on ebay for sale with this exact issue.
evidently the circuit scr that controls the power off is bad and requires a complete dissembly to repair.

My sony cybershot dsc-p200 lense is stuck.

Sony Cybershot DSC-P200 worked great then the lens stuck in the open position.
Read on this site some one suggested gently manipulating the lens and tapping it then turning it on. It worked!!

Sony Cybershot dsc-p73 dropped

I also dropped this camera from waist high and the lens was stuck out and would not retract or let me do anything. I ended up having it sent to Sony to replace the lens and it cost me $200. I paid $300 for the camera to begin with but to me this was the BEST camera I'd ever had and was worth it. Before repairing it, I bought a new Sony Cybershot DSC-W80 since the original one I had dropped was no longer available. I was NOT pleased with the quality of the new camera at all and it was supposed to be better than the one I dropped. That's when I decided it was worth repairing the broken one and worth the cost.
