Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-S600 Digital Camera

Power button stuck down for good

For a while I was under the imperssion the rechargable batteries I bought were faulty, as the power woudl sometimes immediately shut off.
Well that ended when the power button stuck down for good! Of course the 1yr warranty has now expired and I am forced to make the repairs.
I contacted Sony about this problem, and even mentioned it seems pretty common, wouldnt it then be classified as a defect making having a warranty irrelevant, not so much.
I was a told a flat diagnostic and repair rate of $111 is what had to be paid to have the camera functioning again.NOT WORTH IT at all considering the camera is $199!! I was planning to upgrade this winter to the 8.1 Sony, not anymore! I wont be buying a digital camera from them ever again!

Anyone know of a cheap fix rate

I have this same problem. I've had the camera for 3 years, and never had a problem until yesterday. The power button stuck down. leaving the camera on. Since I couldn't get it fixed, I decided I'd take out the batteries until I wanted to use it again. I put the batteries in 20 minutes later, and it wouldn't come back on.

I work for a photographer, so I took it in to have him see if he could fix it. He could not. He took the camera apart and said the shutter button and the power button are both connected to the same computer board. He saw no way to fix it besides sending to Sony. I haven't gotten an estimate yet, but my warranty and extended warranty have expired...I'm bitter about it!! They shouldn't have made that type of power button, and from now on I'll know to look for that.

If anyone gets a fix, let me know!!

I bought 2 Lil' Rider 3 hll Battery Powered FX Sport Bike, black and pink, the black one is fine the pink one will not run and will not hold charge can i get a battery for this?


Battery: 6V - 4.5Ah rechargeable. If you just purchased the toy it should still be under warranty. A battery supply store should be able to acquire a similar rechargeable battery.
If you like to tinker, you could swap parts with the working toy until you isolate the failing component. It might not be the battery. could be faulty wiring, cracked circuit board defective charger.

Went to using my camera and all it does is beep and shuts down I have use cheaper battery's So i bought the Energizer Rechargeable Alkaline/Ni-mh and still nothing


Could be that your batteries do not have enough mAH? They should be at least 2600mAH. Any thing less than that tends to not have enough power to keep your camera on. I've used rechargeable batteries in the range of 1200mAH and they would not keep the camera on for more than a few seconds.
Try a hard reset by holding the power button down and removing the batteries at the same time, still holding the power button down go back and insert the batteries, it should reset it self in most cases? Another possible problem your camera might have is a stuck barrel lens, if it was dropped or has some sand in the lens gears, that could also make it shut down immediately.

What is wrong when AC Adapter is beeping continuously, and does not recharge laptop battery?


The adapter's Syscon detects a short circuit. It might be within the adapter itself; or with your system. Contact the authorized service centre in this case. If you have an other adapter, load it with. By this way, you can get an idea about the faulty unit. Electro help

Just got my daughter the Leap Pad 2 with rechargeable batteries, but never got to use it becuase the device never charged.


Did it come with the batteries installed or seperate? Make sure they work in another device after they charged for 24hrs.
sometimes there is a seperator tap inside that needs to be pulled out

I tried recharging my PSP but suddenly the power light which is recharging color (orange) suddenly shuts off, it's my first time since I just bought one.


sometimes people get thier chargers or batteries mixed up with other peoples, by swapping or trading, if that is u trade back, but it you have had no trade or exchange of chargers, or batteries, then i would suggest going to bestbuy, or anyother electronics store and ask a tech, or simply buy a new charger and if you have no results, new battery

Bought a x300 latitude dell laptop. Powers on with ac power adapter, but batteries will not charge even when left plugged in for 6 hours or more. Could it be a bad motherboard??


It could be a faulty battery or a faulty charging circuit.
Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and recharge cycles. There capacity reduces with age until they reach a stage where they won't charge at all.
