Still it sounds like weak batteries. Be sure to use either rechargeable batteries ( charge for a minimum of 14 hours ) or alkaline. DO NOT USE "heavy duty" carbon-zinc cells - they're only good for low power equipment.

When I turn the power on the lens extends out of the camera and the power on light immediately goes off. The lens stays extended. no photo can be taken. This is a SonyDSC-P73 camera.

The only time that happens with mine is when I am low/out of battery power. I usually have to replace the batteries (even if the lens is still out) and then it works fine. Find it happens more often with rechargeable batteries because they still have a bit of power left, where regular batteries have nothing left after they 'die'.

Hi, The shutter on my sony dsc - p73 will not open all of a sudden is there any hope of being able to sort this?

I'm sorry that the shutter of the sony dsc - p73 will not open. I suggest that you perform a power reset and check the operation.

Performing a manual power reset
  1. Turn off the camera.
  2. Remove the battery pack.
  3. Remove the button-sized lithium battery.
  4. Allow the camera to remain without power for 30 seconds.
  5. Reinsert the button-sized lithium battery.
  6. Reinsert the battery pack.
  7. Turn on the camera
If the issue is not resolved, service will be requred.

Please try resetting the Camera to the factory settings by pressing the reset button and check if it helps. If the issue persists, please try Power resetting the Camera. To Power reset the Camera, remove the batteries from it, then press and hold the Power button for 15 seconds. Now, reinsert the batteries in the Camera and check the functionality.

Sony DSC-P73 auto power off in picture mode

Hello!

You may try using any another compatible Battery pack in the Camera to ensure if the issue is not causing due to the Battery. Actually, when the Camera is switched to the "Picture or Camera" mode then the power consumption increases spontaneously. So, if the Batter is not holding sufficient charge to cater the power need of the Camera in the Camera mode then it'll automatically turn off. However, if the issue persists with spare Battery also then you may try resetting the Camera to the original factory settings by pressing and holding the Reset button for 30 seconds. Otherwise, it's required to get the Camera to resolve the hardware issues.

P73 switching off!

This is most likely a weak battery. Be sure to charge at least 14 hours before using rechargeable batteries. If alkaline, replace with fresh ones. The zoom motor uses more power that any other features.
