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.

Re: Power shuts when in camera mode
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'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.
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 :)
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.
Does the camera turn off or does the screen go black? if the screen goes black but the power lamp stays green then the screen is just turned off (power save mode), If it’s just the screen to turn on the LCD. There are 3 buttons just to the right of the screen, press the center button.
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, Allan Go Ahead. Use Us.
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.
my camera is also doing this and i need help the lens comes out and straight back in also i lost my manual on kodak easyshare v550
amd cant get my camera to work at all i brought a new battery and it makes no difference please help.
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.
