    There are SMD fuses in the power supply section and one of this is blown off.Try and trace the power supply flow and you can short the blown section temporarily.Or replace with SMD resistor value 0 ohms.

My Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-S85 Digital Camera wont switch off. I can turn it back off but it comes on again.


I had exactly the same problem. I checked the shutter swithch but it was working correctly so it was just melfunctioning of software? I played around, taking video in different resolutions etc and eventually it came back to normal. If you can not charge the battery, use rubber band(s) hitching it between lens and power switch, snug the switch stay in pushed position. You then should be able to charge the battery to play the camera. Good luck.

Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ... Unfortunately, many cameras that fall prey to this can only be corrected by professional repair. But, here are some things that you can do that may correct it. They only seem to work for less than 40% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try.
Pay particular attention to Fix #1 first (in other words, how old are your batteries?).

Turn camera power ON so Lens will extend.

The only functioning modes are the picture viewing & set up modes


Have Sony DSC-P73 with exact problem. Only turns on in SETUP mode and when switches to all other modes camera shuts off usually with lens extended. Have tried new batteries - new memory stick - new everything and nothing helped. I just took out the batteries and attached the AC ADAPTER and all works perfectly now so problem is with either batteries - battery compartment or battery connections. As long as you do not need a "PORTABLE" camera, using AC Adapter solves this problem :)

Good Day, if the steps Sony said still not helped, most probably lens assy is defective, true that when it is left protruding a long time, the lens mechanism might stucked, motors might not work or gears stucked. Thanks
