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.

Thanks!

The door of sony cyber-shot DSC-S500 which keeps battery and memory card does not close properly.How can it be fixed


Yes, It can be fixed if your good hands on Exp. However, When the camera hit the floor did it dent the lip/edge surrounding the batter door. If so it may not be fixable, and you may be better of getting a new one, there cheap enough! Let me know the cond. post a picture.

I suggest that you contact Sony PAS to get the new Battery cover at 1-800-488-SONY (7669)

Phone Hours:
Monday to Friday - 8:00 am to 12 am (Midnight) ET
Saturday and Sunday - 9:00 am to 8:00 pm ET


Then, contact the nearest dealer to get the Battery door fixed instead of sending for service.
All you have to do is, press the pin on both the sides of the Battery door and insert in the hole available for battery door on camera.

My Sony cyber-shot DSC-S500 the cover for the battery compartment will not close completely...and even when I hold it closed the camera fails to come on every time


This problem can be caused by the batteries installed incorrectly. The battery closest to the outside edge of the camera should have the "+" button down and the inside battery should have the "+" button up.

Sony Cyber-Shot Battery Compartment Door Broken


I'm having the same problem with my DSC-W1 camera. I dropped my camera and the battery door latches broke.
I found a replacement door on Ebay for $9.95
I followed the instructions in the description and easily removed the broken door from my camera. Now i'm just waiting on the new door to arrive so I could slide the new door in.
I hope this was helpful.

Here's the seller I bought the door from. Hopefully the seller has more doors. =) :

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.
