Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-S500 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Battery door to Sony Cyber shot DSC-S500 is broken

I purchased a new battery cover from Sony Electronics. The rep told me that it would not come with instructions but I could call & speak to someone in tech support. Guess what??? They couldn't help me & told me that I would have to got to a repair facility or send my camera off to Texas for repair. Can you please help me??? I just need to know how to slide the old cover off & replace it with the new one.

Autopilot raymarine st1000

Firstly, I don't know why you have removed the cover housing on the unit. Unless you are a marine electronics service trained individual or have been directed to do so by one, PUT the cover back on and get out the OWNER'S MANUAL. This is an ERROR CODE. Consult the troubleshooting page(s). This may be as easy to fix as any RTFM problem. If this doesn't give you the solution, CALL or e-mail Raymarine and SPEAK to a service rep for help. It is, afterall, their product and who but they can best diagnose the problem and resolve.

The camera lens will not open

I would recommend you contact the manufacturer and speak to them as it sounds like a faulty unit, alternatively take it back to where you purchased the camera from and get a replacement.

Have a Zenith 50" plasma model picture but have sound. of course my 1 yr warranty ran out last week.

Place a warranty service request anyway. Many times with something that fails that close to the warranty period, the company will still cover it. If you get no where with the initial rep, speak to a supervisor +/or manager. This is too close to the warranty end and you should be covered. Be nice but firm in your disappointment with the product and you may get warranty service.

Keep us posted.

well..that's a noble attempt to divert electronics from the landfill. however, parts availability in electronics has about a 2 to 3 year life. so if you find one, it's going to be from someone, like you, that has one around.

Hitachi customer service

That really shocks me. The majority of the posts that have contacted the customer relations department directly have not had a problem. There was one post where someone said that they had to ask for a VP and then the rep came back and said they would take care of it. There are dozens of posts on here where people have had success with Hitachi in getting a new light engine. I wonder if it would be worth while to call them back and ask to speak to someone else. Maybe a supervisor or someone. I would also let them know that several of us have had success in getting the problem corrected.

I'm sorry you're having a tough time. I would push forward and see if that works.

I think that the best option for you is to get in touch with a repair shop in your area and find a not working camera or find one in Ebay.
