Sony DSC P73 camera intermittent power on problem

My sony DSC P73 camera is 3 years old. Of late, I am noticing that it does not power on in a consistent fashion. It sometimes turns on without any issues. Sometimes refuses to power on. It is very frustrating -- we are missing a lot of magical moments with our baby. We have ruled out a battery issue, because when it refuses to turn on, then switching to new batteries don't help. But once it turns on, it works fine...

Is Sony doing anything about it -- is there a recall on this product... will they fix it for free... they fixed my Handycam for free, because it was a known issue.

I have a Sony Cybershot DSC-P73 that I have had for many years now. I have never had any problems with the camera till now. It has never been dropped or anything, but the camera will not zoom in or out at...


It's possible with how old it is the zoom motor has worn out, I've seen that before with the older Sony digital cameras. It's possible for it to be repaired but it's more cost effective to get a new camera from my experience. Hope this helps.

Same as one that's been posted... When I change to picture mode on my Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-P73 it automatically powers off. By changing back to view mode it's possible to power on again. Not the batteries....

Photos taken in the sun are all blurred & not clear , but inhouse photos are normal ( DSC-P73 4 years old)


the settings of the lens might be too sensitive for bright areas. You can try adjusting this on the settings.

Does not give out true image!


Try to do this: 1) Increase the picture ISO and set the ZOOM to max. Here is the manual http://www.docs.sony.com/release/filedownload.asp?Sub=&file=DSCP73.pdf 2) Reset your camera settings to defaults, this will help if it is a software problem. 3) Update your camera firmware. 4) If all didn't work then your camera has a hardware problem and need to be send to Sony Repair and Support Service..
