Sony Cybershot DSC-S45 Reapir

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

Hi,

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

Are you sure it is your charger and not the battery? (Batteries)

You could buy a new Sony charger, but there are lots of universal camera battery chargers, that won't cost as much and you can use it for every battery from every camera. Pick the right one and you have a charger for years to come, whatever your new camera will be and how big or small the batteries are.

Sony cybershot dsc-w120 lens goes crazy whenever I turn it on and tells me to turn it off.


The camera should go off automatically when faulty. attempt to explore teh functions on the camera is discover the unique experience beyond power shut down requests. When powered on, capture a snap shot immediately or else the camera takes charge to poweroff to save batteries. Also, attempt to power charge since the insufficeient battery does not allow the camera to stay on long.

Sony cybershot, but displays neg through lcd


This happened because you are not a camera repair technician. You took a complicated piece of electronic equipment apart without any knowledge of what you were doing. I'm glad that at least, your pics turn out.

Hey Gregorious03,
You could try removing the batteries for at least one minute and then reinserting them, or you could try initializing the camera back to the factory settings under the setup menu. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan

the button is offset inside the camera, there is a little piece of plastic that seems to loose its elasticity and will not depress the actual on/off switch inside.
