Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-S600 Digital Camera

"Access" and "Power on/off" screens

My daughters camera. She says she hasn't dropped or abused it in any way. Tried new rechargable batteries (2700mAh NIMH- 1.2V). Still getting the same error. Anyone got any other ideas, please.

    Managed to initialize the camera - no good (tried it twice)

    Did the power reset thingy - no good (tried it twice)

    The lens is still retracted behind the shutter so i can't tell if its crooked or not!

    Also tried the "carpet drop" - no good. The only thing is when dropping the camera in the switched on state, it powers off. Powering on again results in the same screen ie "Turn power off then on again".

    The solution seems to lie somwhere in the lens of the camera. Just try to adjust the lens, If lens looks a little crooked try moving it or putting it straight. Hope it helps.



    Then power off and then power on.



    Thanks. Please rate this solution.

    Sandra, were you able to iniliatize the camera from the MENU option?

  • Narmada Anand
    Narmada Anand Aug 24, 2008

    In that case, I suggest that you please try to POWER RESET the Camera and check if it works.



    Remove the battery from the Camera and then press and hold the POWER BUTTON of the Camera for 15 seconds and then reinsert the battery after 1 minute and check if the Camera works normally.



    Thanks

Nikon Coolpix 5700 was working fine, now it won't turn on. Batteries are fine, but camera just won't power up at all. No error message, nothing but a dead (black) screen. No idea why it won't come on--it's...


Two quick suggestions first is the battery chamber contacts clean make sure they are clean. Are you using a battery pack with rechargeable AA's ? if so check the battery orientation it only takes one out of place. If you are using the rechargeable battery I know you said the batteries were fine but make sure the power is up on the rechargeable. I've had it where I put a battery on charge knowing it was pretty well dead came back 5 minutes later and the light was green, took the battery of the charger unplugged the charger plugged the charger back in and put the battery back on the charge. It then completed its true cycle.

Batteries drained off too fast. New pair of batteries can only last for about 3 camera shots.


You don't say what batteries you are using. I believe this camera takes AA batteries, which come in many capacities. The best batteries for high drain applications are not single use alkaline cells, but high rated NiMH rechargeables. See if a pair of 2700mAh rated ones last longer than what you have been using.

Canon Powershot A630 problem


The LCD screen may be overtaxing your batteries, resulting in shutdown. Are you using alkaline batteries, or worse yet "super heavy duty" batteries? If so, some brands of regular batteries just don't have the power for more than a few pics in a digital camera. Some may even have problems just powering startup of the camera. Performance varies by brand and shelf life of the batteries (how long were they on the store shelf before you bought them? Their expiration date may be listed on the package.).

Digital cameras for the most part should only be used with rechargeable NiMH batteries. Many retailers sells these for around $7 for a package of four (about $15-19 for the batteries with charger). Keep in mind they'll save you big bucks in the long run over alkalines, AND they'll last for at least 100 pictures per charge (and probably many many more). You'll be very pleased with their performance, and may slap yourself for not buying them sooner. When at the store, look on the package for a power rating of at least 2500 mah.

Polaroid i631 digital camera


Daughter received camera as Christmas gift. Camera beeps three times and does nothing. I guess this camera is only good until the warranty runs out, 90 days. We have tried several new batteries and the expensive rechargeable type also. VERY UNHAPPY!!!!!

Camera won't turn on.


Mine had the same problem.  I consulted http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/ and it said to use rechargeable batteries only.  The entry claimed that alkaline batteries, even if they're brand new, don't have sufficient power for more than a few pictures and may not even be powerful enough to turn the camera on.  I was dubious, but I tried putting in a pair of fully charged rechargeables and, by Gum, the camera was suddenly working again.  So before junking the camera, try investing 20 bucks in a battery charger and a pair of AA rechargeables and see if that fixes it.

S40 Battery problem


Alkaline batteries are not capable of outputting the level of power required for your camera to operate. Your daughter's camera may have lower requirements and be able to function properly using alkaline batteries. Your standard alkaline battery outputs about 700 milliamps of power when they are brand new. A rechargeable NiMH battery can range from 1200 to 2700 or even 3200 milliamps max power output depending on the quality of the battery. Most compact digital cameras that accept AA style batteries are designed for these high-output rechargeables and will not function for very long even on fresh Alkaline batteries.
