Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-S500 Digital Camera
I hope you can help. When I push the power button, the screen
lights up, the zoom comes out and immediately goes back and turns
off. There is a little red light that comes on during this action
on the bottom front. I cleaned where the battery goes. I
just put in new batteries.
Thank you for your help.
Nothing worked, so I bought a new camera.

I had the same problem with my Sony DSC-S500, I called Sony for a solution and they told me to take the batteries out and hold down the power button for 10 seconds, after trying that the camera would turn on the off again. I decided to hold down the power button and the button that takes the picture for 10 seconds and after putting the batteries back in the camera, it worked fine. I think that the picture button was stuck. Hope this works for you.
