Yes, you may decide to get another camera. This camera appears to need repairs which may be more than you want to pay.
A choice may be to sell it as a parts or repair camera on a site such as Ebay.

Do i use usb to charge sony Cyber-Shot DSC-S500?


No. The DSC-S500 uses standard AA batteries, either disposable alkalines or rechargeable NiMHs. If you use rechargeables, they must be charged outside the camera using a separate charger.

Clean battery terminals inside camera battery compartment, this model tends to get battery terminals clogged and causing no power up problem.

My Sony cyber-shot DSC-S500 the cover for the battery compartment will not close completely...and even when I hold it closed the camera fails to come on every time


This problem can be caused by the batteries installed incorrectly. The battery closest to the outside edge of the camera should have the "+" button down and the inside battery should have the "+" button up.

If you open the camera up, whick I know is an intricate task, and take the screen down but don't unplug it, at the right bottom their is something that resembles a watch battery, if you can figure out how to get it off and find a replacement it will be fixed... This battery serves a a sort of memory power, even though you have batteries, this battery keeps the memory for the camera's software, so inturn without it the camera is dead in the water. this is fixable!
