Power shuts when in camera mode

I hope someone can help me because I can't find my manual. I have new batteries in and am able to view old pictures. I know the memory stick is not full. When I put the dial on the camera in camera mode, it automaticlaly shuts off. If anybody can help with this I would appreciate it.

The user manual would not be of much help. Please try to clean the battery contacts inside the camera. Please use the new fully charged NI-MH accu batteries preferably 2500 maH capacity. If this measures do not provide a cure please contact the nearest Authorized Sony Service. If you need more info please advice.

I have a Canon camera, which worked fine. I had to recharge teh batteries often, that was all. Last night, i took it out. In view mode, the camera does not shut off. The moment i switch to camera mode, the...

I'm assuming you're talking about a point-and-shoot model, and not the 1000D as the category suggests. Camera mode has significantly higher power requirements than viewing mode. It is possible that your rechargeable battery has degraded to a point where it no longer can power camera mode, or it might just be discharged. Try with a freshly charged battery, or if you're lucky enough to run on AA batteries, get new ones. You might also try using the camera while plugged into the USB port of the PC, which might be able to supply power to the camera. I have noticed that when the batteries are near-empty, the camera "dies" rather abruptly.

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 :)

Camera shuts down in shoot mode but I can view pictures on card no problem

Are you still using alkaline batteries? If so, alkaline batteries just don't have the power for more than a few pics in a digital camera. Some may have reached their shelf life, and though brand new may even have problems just powering startup of the camera. The Canon A4XX series are particularly sensitive to poor quality batteries. Digital cameras for the most part should only be used with rechargeable NiMH batteries. Retailers sell these for around $7 for a package of four (about $15-19 for the batteries with charger). Keep in mind they'll save you big bucks in the long run over alkalines, AND they'll last for at least 100 pictures per charge (and probably many many more). You'll be very pleased with their performance, and may slap yourself for not buying them sooner. When at the store, look on the package for a power rating of at least 2500 mah.

Sony cybershot dsc-s90

Hey Gregorious03,
You could try removing the batteries for at least one minute and then reinserting them, or you could try initializing the camera back to the factory settings under the setup menu. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,

Camera only half operates: preview mode OK, picture-taking mode not working

Mine shuts off when I press the shutter button. I put in new batteries and I can get the lens in then. But it shuts off when I try to take a picture. These cameras are notorious for having a zoom problem. They say the Zoom error appears and the camera dies. There is a fix of gently pulling the lens out all the way till the cover open then twisting it gently clock wise till it clicks. They say this fixes this problem but I don't think that is what is wrong with mine. Do a search on Fuji E550 zoom problem fix. It should show up.

Blank Screen and faulty shutter blades

I found out the hard way that you should never use alkaline batteries in a Digital Camera. I thought my camera had a fundamental flaw (power kept going off whenever I tried to take a photo or record a video and the shutter blades half closed) even though it was only 2 months old. I nearly wrote it off but all along the problem was that I was using alkaline batteries, which incidentally were enclosed with the camera in the box!! Once I switched to NiMH (Nickel) batteries the camera worked fine and the fault completely vanished! These NiMH batteries are avaiable in most electrical shops i.e currys/comet in the UK. They must be charged before use. They are more expensive than alkaline batteries (£8-£9 for 4) but as they are rechargable they last a long time.

Can view memory card but wont power up to take pics

Try using brand new fully charged rechargeable batteries like NiMH or NiCd. Also try viewing though the computer via USB.
