Some internal problems will cause this. Those problems can be numerous.
The only way to really fix a camera like this is to have it repaired. This may be more than what you want to spend on it.
You could sell it for as is or parts on a site such as Ebay.

My sony cybershot dsc-t200 will not turn on. None of the buttons or switches work. The battery is charged. For a while, it wouldn't turn on unless I put the battery on the charger for a few minutes first....


Yes its could be the battery ,have you try the power plug from the charger to see if its works if yes you may suspect the battery
because the ion lithium battery after a while of charging they come with a memory effect so when you charge it, they only charge a part
of the power and dont charge fully..

hope that will help you
regards Alan

  3. Ensure the LCD backlight is turned on by pressing the DISPLAY button several times until the screen appears.

Try to reset the camera to original settings:
How to reset a Cyber-shot® digital still camera back to original factory settings. Solution
sp.gif sp.gif Cyber-shot cameras nowadays have a built-in rechargeable battery for retaining time, date, and other settings. Since the built-in rechargeable battery is not removable, current Cyber-shot camera models can only be returned to the original factory settings by pressing a small RESET button on the camera or by using an Initialize option in the menu.
Older-model Cyber-shot cameras (prior to the year 2000) do not have a built-in rechargeable battery and do not have a RESET button or Initialize option in the menu. These cameras require a manual power reset.
IMPORTANT: To determine whether or not your camera has a RESET button or Initialize option, or for other model-specific information to complete any of the steps in this solution, refer to the operating instructions supplied with the product. Manuals are available online in the Manuals/Specs/Warranty section of the Sony® eSupport Web site.
Follow the appropriate procedure below for your camera.
Using an Initialize option in the menu
Since Cyber-shot cameras have different menu system layouts, refer to the instruction manual specific for your camera model.
Using a RESET button
  1. Locate the RESET button on the camera.
  2. Use a pointed object (like a ballpoint pen) to press and hold the RESET button for 2-3 seconds.
  3. After 2-3 seconds has elapsed, release the RESET button.
Performing a manual power reset
  1. Turn off the camera.
  2. Remove the battery pack.
  3. Remove the button-sized lithium battery.
  4. Allow the camera to remain without power for 30 seconds.
  5. Reinsert the button-sized lithium battery.
  6. Reinsert the battery pack.
  7. Turn on the camera.

My sony cybershot dcs-s700, it has new batteries, but the power button flashes green and camera will not stay on, and you are unable to magnify. Whats wrong


Hi!

Remove the Battery from the Camera and clean the battery compartment using a soft cloth. Then, press and hold the power button for 30 seconds. Then, reinsert the Battery pack and turn ON the Camera. Please make sure that the Battery is fully charged. If the issue persists then the issue may be related to mechanical failure and service will be required.

Turning on may have killed it. however try this. Take the batteries and card out and leave the doors open Take a polythene bag and place in it a quantity of uncooked rice or salt tied into a suitable cloth. put the camera in and seal the bag. leave in a warm dry place for several days This may save it -or it may not.
