Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-S600 Digital Camera

Camera refuses to switch on

Switch on camera in stored photos mode, everything is fine.
Switch to camera or video mode and the screen says "Turn power off and on again". Tried this - same problem
New batteries - same problem
Initialized again via MENU - same problem.
Any other ideas, please

    Last resort !

    Going to strip it down- see if anythings broken or not.

  • cyber-girl Aug 27, 2008

    Getting in really deep now ! Stripped camera down and there are no obvious problems but inside the cover is a sticker warning about replacing the 3 fuses with like for like. I can't see any on the pcb - does anyone know where they might be located or what circuits they protect ?

    Fixed it!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Small cog on shutter motor had somehow disengaged with teeth on shutter mechanism causing it to jam.

    Not too difficult just a bit fiddly. Total of 6 screws ( 4 external and 2 internal ).

    Thanks to everyone for their help !!!!!!!!!!!!!

Picture display freezes and can't none of features work


PLEASE see the test and fix it. God bless you

1. Camera won't record photos. Make sure you've selected a photography mode with your camera, rather than a playback mode or a video mode. If your camera's battery power is low, the camera might not be able to record photos.
Additionally, if your camera's internal memory area or your Memory card is full, the camera won't record any more photos.
With some cameras, the internal software only allows a certain number of photos to be recorded on a single memory card because of how the software numbers each photo. Once the camera hits its limit, it won't save any more photos. (This problem is more likely to occur when an older camera is paired with a new, large memory card.)
The battery is the root of most common digital camera issues. Though battery life has been extended as battery and digital camera technologies evolve, no battery lasts forever. When your batteries begin to run out, sometimes your camera responds in wacky ways that may not seem connected. The flash may not come on, the autofocus won't engage as quickly as it did before or the LCD screen will power off intermittently. All of your camera's responsiveness is linked to its battery strength. Change batteries and try to recreate a problem; odds are you won't be able to. It's a good idea to carry a backup battery for cameras that use lithium-ion cells or a pack of spares for cameras that use AA. Watch your battery icon for a general idea of

Does not chnage back from from Photo mode to Video Mode


If you have been using this camera for a long time, most likely the function switch ( the one you turn to change from photo to video mode) contacts are worn out. you have to take this one to a repair shop to change the function switch.

Record button doesn't function


You may want to check the record lockout safety switch located on the tape. This button can get moved by accident and the camera will refuse to record on that tape. Also, be sure the camera is in "video" mode, not "photo" mode. Some of Canons camcorders have a digital still camera mode which stops the camcorder from functioning because the photos are being recorded to a memory card and not your tape, please check this swithc as well. Good luck. Joe Weibel customelectronics.org

Recording Still images To The Memory Stick M.REC mode (Memory RECORD mode) 1. Set the mode switch to MEMORY CARD. 2. Set the power switch to CAMERA. 3. Press the PHOTO button. The still image is recorded to the Memory Card. To View photos on the Memory Card M.PLAY mode (Memory PLAYBACK mode) 1. Set the mode switch to MEMORY CARD. 2. Set the power switch to PLAYER. The last recorded image appears. If there are no recorded images on the Memory Card, NO STORED PHOTO! or NO STORED MPEG4! will display on the screen. 3. Using the (FWD) and (REV) buttons, search for the desired still image. * To view the next image : press the (FWD) button. * To view the previous image : press the (REV) button. * Pressing (FWD) when you are on the last image will take you to the first image and pressing (REV) when you are on the first image will take you to the last image. * Keep pressing (FWD) or (REV) to search for an image quickly.
