Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W55 Digital Camera
I recently discovered when trying to turn on my camera, that it would not turn on. Its not the AA batteries as I have changed them out a couple of times. I think its the toggle button for the on/off switch. In the past when turning it on, I could feel it press down on and off. It doesn't do that now. Given it was such a inexpensive camera when I bought it two years ago, I would like to find if I could take it apart to inspect/fix the button as opposed to taking it somewhere for repair. What it would cost to have a professional repair it would probably cost the same amount as a newer version today. So my question is where can I go to find a repair manual, or can someone point out how I would open the camera to get to the on/off toggle switch
I did have this problem but I had already fixed it myself, You can say it is easy to fix or difficult for it depend on whether you are a handyman or not, it is personal.
First, I don't responsible anything if you want to try it, this is only for you information.
In order to open the the rack which have the word "power" on it, you need to remove the turning knob first, use a butter knief to open it, inside would be a SPRING, it will be easy to pop up, be careful not to lose it, After the knob was opened, you will see a hidden screw to hold the rack, remove the screw. Another screw is at the bottom of the camera, which was right below the usb plug, remove the screw. Now you will be able to push the rack up and remove it, now you can see the broken power button and fix it,
There is trick to repair the button, email me if you want to know
