    We bought two of these for Christmas last year (08) and have the same problem with both. Camera comes on then shuts off immediately a few times then it will not come on at all. Batteries are new.

Camera needs to be reset...but not gonna be easy

take batteries out...hold down power switch for 15 seconds...then put batteries in and restart

if camera works...go straight to menu and reintialize all functions

this is a firmware/software problem that is not easily fixed...and Sony wants $91 to fix a $100 camera

keep repeating this until it works...may take numerous attempts...but this is how I got my camera running again

From what I see at Sony, there are 2 models of the Cybershot S650

DSCS650 or VGNFS650F
Please confirm which type it is.

Sony has a great website.

If you would like to link to this page you can choose which model it is

http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/model-find.pl?mdl=Cybershot+S650

Once you choose the model, click on it and go to the next page
on the right you can live chat with a Sony Rep, this might be your best bet on this problem. It sound mechanical to me or it is set to turn off at a particular point. This camera is designed to turn it self off about 3-4 minutes if not in use. This is the Auto-Power off function. Page 11 of the Manual. Link below
http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/model-documents.pl?mdl=DSCS650

once you go to this link click the 5th one down under Manuals

I can imagine you can reset this in the Setup (looks like a little tool box) not sure though.

Use the links above, if all else fails contact Sony through the live chat.

Sorry I could not help you more.

Sony Cybershot DSC W50


The same thing has happened to me. Except the batteries died with the lens out, and now it's not letting me turn it on at all! It stays on for maybe, 3 seconds, then shuts off.

I'm trying to figure out what to do.
If you figure this out, please email me at katiekins259@aim.com

Thanks for listening!

To salvage the pictures you could just use a memory card reader. As for the camera itself I cannot say, but by your description it doesn't sound promising.

DSC-W50 sony cybershot


I had the same problem with my DSC-W55. I actually just called the customer service number on the sony website and they told me how to solve the problem.

- Take your battery out
- Press and hold the power button for 60 seconds
- Re enter your battery
- Voila.. it should work when you turn it on. Mine did.
