DSC-S500 Zoom goes out wont' stay Red light comes on in front
I hope you can help. When I push the power button, the screen
lights up, the zoom comes out and immediately goes back and turns
off. There is a little red light that comes on during this action
on the bottom front. I cleaned where the battery goes. I
just put in new batteries.
Re: DSC-S500 Zoom goes out wont' stay Red light comes on...
I had the same problem with my Sony DSC-S500, I called Sony for a solution and they told me to take the batteries out and hold down the power button for 10 seconds, after trying that the camera would turn on the off again. I decided to hold down the power button and the button that takes the picture for 10 seconds and after putting the batteries back in the camera, it worked fine. I think that the picture button was stuck. Hope this works for you.

my cam z sony DSC HX1..the problem z when i zoom in(max) the objct i m zoomin doesnt get focusd....when i shoot it the pic z totally blurrd....no matter how mch i try 2 focus with the manual focus option the outcum z da same....
upon hitting the power button, the red light showing on the front of the tv should flash a couple of times, the screen should come on and the light goes off..the red "stand by " light stays on and we cannot get the screen to come up..needless to say, cannot get to the menu to change any display options...any suggestions?
i just help the zoom to get out with a thin screwdriver and now the "ZOOM ERROR" message disappear, but i have another problem. The camera does not show the target (what to shoot) on the screen. It shows ONLY pictures on card.
I tried everything, but the target i choose does not appear on the screen.
Is this camera only have a digital zoom? If it has an optical zoom as well, you could have a setting that is set to ignore digital zoom and because your lighting conditions, zooming in and out is not currently possible because the aperture can not be opened enough to light you take a picture without being blurry. The auto focus would be taking priority in stopping you from taking a picture. Just a hunch.
Most likely there is a problem with servo drive for the lens and camera functions. The fix is to replace the complete processor board including the servo drive electronics. After replacement the board must be tested and calibrated.
Call Sony to see if the camera is worth to have serviced.
Take it back to where you got it or send it to Kodak because this should be a warranty issue. I repair these camera's all the time and it should like 1 of 2 things main controller is not making proper connection or a cold solder joint and the connection is intermediately connection making it work once in a while I hope this help you decide on what to do.
