The small nylon power button contact lever breaks easily on these camera. For those of you that are capable you can try to repair the lever but I have found this to be quite difficult and usually breaks after the fact. This requires opening up the unit and removing the dark grey L-shaped button piece and then repairing it. But, for those of you that just want to get the camera working again quickly with just a little inconvenience follow these instructions.
Drill a small hole in the top of the camera as indicated in the picture here. It will be right on top of the circuit board button cotact for the Power button. Just use a paper clip and stick it into the hole and depress it once to turn the camera ON. Same for turning in back OFF. Easy fix.

Power button stuck down on my sony cyber shot dsc s600


Possible that this is a mechanical failure and the switch is broken or out of place. Remove the battery and check the charge, if this seems fine then replace and tap the camera upside to see if the buttons resets.
If not the camera must be taken out, try to open ONLY if you have the correct tools and do not try to open otherwise to damage the unit.
Best option is to take an opinion from Sony for estimation.

Stuck power button on my Sony cybershot dsc-s600


Hi!
Yes, power buttons do break on these cameras. Contact your local Sony service center and see how much will it cost to replace the top panel. If they ask too much, feel free to contact me at toms.safranovs@gmail.com
I work in a Sony service center.

The power-zoom-shutter top case assembly is faulty. You can replace this part.

Power button stuck


The power button is nothing more than a molded piece of nylon that can break. It's an easy fix if you feel like taking the camera apart which is quite simple. It is rather intuitive and one can figure it out as you break it down. The piece can be repaired by buying a thin 5 cent nylon washer at the hard ware store and gluing a new piece onto the broken piece with epoxy. You'll notice a little "bump" on the bottom of the piece which will make contact with the shutter. You can build a small piece of nylon washer onto it in the exact same place. Reverse the breakdown to assemble it and presto!!... a repair for 5 cents!!! Google "how to disassemble a sony dsc s600". Beware...the capacitor can hold up to 300 volts and can bite you. Hope this helps.

First, a question, was the camera exposed to a sticky substance like Coke? This is a very common cause of buttons sticking. Another possibility is that the switch on the circuit under the cover is jammed and needs to be either repaired or replaced. This is something that only a repair shop can handle. You cold take directly to an authorized Sony repair shop. There will be a contact number in you owner's manual.
