This is a known problem with the Sony cybershot. Well at least they know about it. My brother had a camera did the exact same thing. It was out of warrany but not by much. Called Sony found Sony extended its warranty on the camera. Sent it in the camera came back with a new lens assembly and a software update. If you search around the internet there are some people that say that you can take it apart and grease the lens. But I would not recommend this unless you are a design engineer for Sony. The lens mechanism is timed and very delicate not to mention getting the inner lenses smudged. But if you are just going to send it to the trash I would try it. But6 be careful of high voltage to the falsh if you choose to take it apart.

Flash will not pop up

Alot problems with this...

The pop up flash only pops up half the way. We had a large dinner party the other night and tried to take pics only to find the flash would not go off. Later, I manually lifted the flash all the way open and took pic and flash did go off. Battery fully charged. In auto mode. Camera only 2-3 years old! Really upset. Went to the web to see if others have same problem AND THEY DO!!! Several have the half pop flash and resolve it by holding the flash up manually. So thought this was a global problem and Chatted with Kodak Customer Service (puleeese). They said, sorry, but $150 to fix or 25% off upgrade camera.

Think it before take some choice.

When the camera is turned there is no isplay on

Sounds like you yanked out the cord without using the "safely remove hardware" icon at the bottom right of your screen. Now your camera is corrupted (probably the card,too). To get back to life as you knew it: 1. Go out and buy a card reader and use it to download the pics from your card. 2. With no card in the camera, remove the battery...press all the buttons...leave it alone for 20 minutes...insert the card and then the battery...turn it on. 3. Go into the menu and find "format"...follow the on-screen directions. Now, enjoy your camera.

My fuji finepix s5600 shuts down when i want to take pics,

Try cleaning the battery contacts in the camera first with a pencil eraser and then with a cotton swab lightly dampened with rubbing alcohol.

Will not power on. new batteries installed.

Hello

Thank you for using FixYa for your problem

Always check the batteries first but if is it still giving the same fault, your camera is faulty.
It should be taken to an authorized repair centre for a repair estimate. Very few digital cameras have any user-serviceable parts.

Please rate our solutions and if you still have problems please call back for more ideas to help you

Thanks

Camera dead after downloading pics

Use a card reader to download the pictures instead. I never figured out how to use the cable that attaches the camera to the computer. I've been doing this for 4 years and haven't had a problem!

Downloading to computer

Hmm perhaps the USB Cable has dust in it. Have you tried blowing into the ends to clear any dust?
