Camera won't turn on

Just bought a second hand s600. When I press the on button, it briefly lights up but then goes out and nothing else happens. The camera appears to be in excellent condition otherwise and doesn't appear to have been damaged.

Hello Drifter,
I have exactly the same problem with my sony DSC-S600! Though I bought two pair of GP-2500's, which are told to be good ones... after 12 hours the led's of my battery-charger turn green (fully loaded) but my batteries are very warm. When I use another battery tester they seem to be 100%. Does this mean my batteries are used up?

The laptop was turned off improperly and the power light is on but there is nothing oon the screen


Try pressing and holding the power button down until the power light goes off.
Once it is off, then try to turn-on the laptop as usual.
If this does not work, remove the power cord and the battery from the laptop, and then press and hold the power button down for 30 seconds.
After the 30 seconds, release the button, install the battery and re-connect the power cord. Start the laptop as usual by pressing the power button briefly.

I have a Gateway DX-4720-03 when I press the "ON" button it lights up briefly then goes out and computer will not boot. Fans do not come on. nothing happens. (If I press button again immediately nothing...


I would actually lean a little more towards the power supply being the problem. You can either have someone locally test it for you, or you can buy a power supply tester to check it out.

The camera stops functioning after a few seconds and goes to a dark screen. Pressing the on button again and the wrord "Access" apears on the screen. Please advise.


You need to use lithium batteries which last ages. This is a sign that battery power is low. It happened to my camera and I took it to get fixed. All it needed were more powerful batteries!

Won't take pictures


Perhaps if you transfer all your old pics to your pc and then format the card, I think that would solve your problem.
Let me know if you have any joy. Thanks

Samsung Digimax S600 is stucked in off position


I've had this with a diff model of Samsumg (V10). The problem with mine was that the lens wasn't opening, which was causing the beeping. I held the camera with lens facing down and when I pressed the power button I lightly tapped the camera against the palm of my other hand. The lens extracted.

I have more problems with the lens now but that may have something to do with me dropping it later:(

Camera won't switch on


I thought the batteries had worn out because when I press the 'on' button the 'busy' light comes on for a few seconds and then goes out and nothing happens. Have changed batteries and checked installed correctly.
Any ideas please?

Camera wont stay on, please help


Possible that the Lens Mechanism is out of sync. If its still within warranty just bring it in and have it serviced. If not I may be able to help you out but it requires dismantling the camera,..

If any one knows a quicker and easier way maybe they can post it here But as far as experience goes thats what happened with mine,

Hope this helps
