It's the type of battery you are using. Use a rechargable battery or a long-life disposable rated for digital cameras. Regular (cheap) AA batteries don't have enough power to run this type of device - even if they are brand new. Save the cheap batteries for your wall clock.

My Cybershot DSC-S650 has recently won't stay on. I have changed the batteries to different types. The only way it comes on is if its in viewer mode to view the pictures that I have taken. I have even...

My HDC-570AB Hitachi digital camera drains AAA batteries as soon as I switch it on so that batteries are running low within 2 minutes of taking pictures. It renders the camera useless unless I take out an endless supply of AAA batteries! Is there a solution to this?

Pictures turn very dark as soon as the shutter is pressed or picture turns completely white as soon as shutter is pressed

It sounds like you have some settings changed for the manual mode. Try using an automatic mode. You can also "Initialize" the settings on your camera to set all settings back to factory default.

When in Camera mode I focus and then prepare to take the picture but the as soon as I press the switch to take the picture the LG routinely switches from Camera mode to the Video mode. Why? I cant see

Well, this is the intended function of the button unfortunately.

If you press and hold down the camera button, it toggles between camera and video.
However I'm sure you have noticed that on occasion, if you don't hold the button down long enough, no picture is taken.

It turns out to be something you just have to get used to. There is like a 2 second delay on the toggle so just don't hold it down that long. It is hard to get used to if you are used to a red eye removable flash or a slow camera button as found on many new cameras.

Here is a tip though, after you take the picture to quickly take another picture, you can fast save the photo by pressing the camera button again instead of messing with the touch screen.

I TURN ON MY A70 AND I GET A VIEW OF THE LAST PICTURE I TO TOOK.

The camera is stuck in picture review mode. Try sliding the mode switch back and forth a couple times, and leave it in camera mode to see if this corrects the problem.

Camera goes to sleep too quickly...is there a way to adjust?

To save battery power, the camera automatically goes into sleep mode and the monitor turns off if there is no operation after 3 minutes when the camera is turned on (when the lens cover is open and the monitor is on). No picture is taken even if the shutter button is fully pressed in this mode. Operate the zoom button or other buttons to restore the camera from sleep mode before taking a picture. If the camera is left on for 15 minutes, it automatically turns off (the lens cover closes and the monitor turns off). Press POWER to turn the camera on.

Camera still possessed

There is something wrong with the settings of the camera.
When it is on setting or view mode is fine. It is not supposed to take pictures.
Go thru the Menu and pick the way you want your pictures, size and all those details, switch them take pictures and keep switching the settings until you get it right.

My camera was taking 3 pictures at the time, and it was because of the setting was set to do that. Don't be afraid of changing the setting for pictures, you can always change and try different things, digital pictures can be erased right away. So you can try as much as you want.
Try all options in the setting for taking a picture, change a setting, try to take a picture and see what happens. Then try on another setting and so on.

View finder

I had the same problem, it is the switch inside that is broken which allows you to switch back and forth between viewing pictures and taking them. There isn't really a fix besides getting the switch replaced and I am having a very hard time trying to find parts for mine. Good luck.

DSC 40 powering problem

I'm having a similar problem with a DSC S60: The camera will turn on in preview mode, but powers off as soon as I switch into STILL or VIDEO mode. I've changed batteries, done the full reset (remove the batteries and then hold the power button down for 15 secs.), and initialized all setting to factory defaults from the menu, and still get the same behaviour.
