Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-S40 Digital Camera

1 Answer

White screen (of death)

I have the same problem as many people with this camera. It will turn on for a few seconds and show a low battery blinking, then the screen will turn white. I've tried tapping it in the front with no luck. I've tried opening the camera up and cleaning some of the "connectors" will alcohol, but I need to know exactly which connector I need to clean and if I need to do anything else while it's openned up. Please help!

Hmm Well I will tell you now that all you have done is tapped the wrong side.. Turn the camera over and tap the back along the bottom over the word SONY and your screen will return..

Camera will not charge, shows blinking orange but will not turn on... when it does, it's to a "battery exhausted" screen or the lcd display with a low battery symbol. Also doesn't show on...


It could possibly be the battery or the charger itself.Try purchasing the charger it self.Use the old battery to see if it will charge it. If it does not charge you may have to purchase a new battery.as well.

Battery low indicator comes on even after new battery installed


I also have this problem. I put freshly recharged batteries in the DX3900 and the camera starts to turn on and reads the memory card (the green LED blinks) and then I notice that the in CAPTURE mode the lens does not extend out of the body housing. The top display shows a flashing low battery warning and after approx. 15 seconds, the camera shuts off with no function.

I have determined that the camera appears to have changed its low battery sense level as I have verified that the batteries are indeed fully charged by using a volt meter. If I have the camera in a warm environment, and do not have the LCD display on (removes a major power drain) the camera can be made to work for a short while. If I select the LCD to turn on, the extra drain seems to cause the camera's battery monitor to think that the battery voltage is too low and the camera shut down. I have yet to resolve this issue.

Battery level


As Suzaku explained:
A battery icon will show up on the LCD screen of your camera when it is already low and needs recharging. It can be found at the lower right side of your LCD screen. The ready light of your camera will also blink red and your camera will turn off if the battery is exhausted.
NOTE:
The icon will not appear if the batery is sufficient and there is no TECH way of making the icon show until the batt needs charging.
