To power on, Take your charger and charge your phone. When it shows that it charges (when the indicator is moving) quickly take out your charger and immediately take out your battery and put it back in again and it will turn on.

Sounds like a wire inside your camera going into the camera's shutters may be separated, broken, or shifted. Might be a defected camera, otherwise send it to repair; they'll know what to do.

It is an old camera. It was introduced in 2002. The spec's I looked up just say memory stick, and memory included "8MB Memory Stick". I looked the MSAC-M2 up on line and it looks a like it's a "Memory Stick Duo Adapter" not a memory stick. I'd try one that is sold as a "Memory Stick".

You have to check the CCD and this can be faulty. The picture may look hazy or lines mayy appear randomly.

Actually, try manually turning off the flash and taking a picture. If the shutter works and takes a picture, then suspect that your flash is burned out. Unfortunately it's not a simple task to change a burned out flash tube.

Hi! Just had the same problem (black display) on a Pentax Optio 330GS(?). I moved my hand in front of it and took pictures of things but nothing happened. Then my girlfriend tried to point it to a lamp, and all-of-a-sudden it kinda woke up from a screensaver or something. So weird, but it worked. Perhaps it needs enough light in order to start using the display and lens. I couldn't take any pictures when the LCD was black. So, try pointing it towards a strong light source before you break your camera.

This need looking at by Sony- anything from a faulty switch to a board fault here.

is there a reset access hole?

Sony Cyber-Shot... • Answered on Oct 16, 2007

USB can be funny some times- it has worked so you know what to do OK? Check-the USB setting- Start/ControlPanel/System hardware/device manager Rund down to the USB setting and open it check for any yellow makers intcatiing afault - seek help from there. If you are using a hub or have multiple other devices connected.- disconnec them and use the USB cord direct to computer. Have you remembered to switch the camera on- it has good batteries- set to upload Huh! So much to remember easy to forget something If the trouble wont go away- go buy a card reader and leave that lugged in to usb.
