Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-S600 Digital Camera

1 Answer

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 !!!!!!!!!!!!!

I bet you can't solve this.


We have a Canon A520 and it was having all the symptoms noted. Searched for a resolution on numerous sites including the Canon Support site. While on the Canon Support site, I found an FAQ on "How to RESET the A520". Turn camera on, find and hold MENU button for 5+ seconds until "Reset settings to default?" screen appears. Arrow over to OK and press the SET button. When we did this the battery low indicator showed, replaced batteries with standard alkaline batteries. Everything functions properly, with no additional problems for the past 5 days. I guess the camera just lost its mind and had to be defaulted and rebooted, hope this helps.
