I've used my DSC-F707 for about 2 years already without a problem. If not in use i store it in a secure room at 20-25 C.
However recently I've been having an intermettent problem with my camera. After turning on my camera, when i try to take a picture, if i press the "shot" button the camera shuts down automatically. Pressing the button further will turn the camera back on. Pressing it further causes it to shutdown again.
I have tried to reset the camera. But it didnt help.
Anyone have face this problem before.

Re: DSC-F707 Shut Off
May I suggest you to do or have done following actions:
Use a philipps size 0 screwdriver and open your camera body.
Then look at all the flat cables, try and disconnect them thoroughly, rub them a little bit and reconnect them. Maybe if you have another digicam, it's a good idea to take pics of how the flat cables are connected and stacked, for easy re-assembly.
All your problems sound like bad contacts. Maybe dust or corrosion...
I bet your 707 can find a new youth!

Sounds like the CCD has developed a fault. I had a F717 which had similar faults but this turned out to be a batch of faulty CCD's which I know the F707 shared. This maybe why Sony are not keen to get involved as it will cost them money. JVC had a similar problem with some of it's Camcorders using a similar CCD and they replaced them FOC even those well out of warranty. Keep trying with Sony and mention the CCD and serial number of the F707 and see if it is one of the faulty batch.
Without looking at the back of my 707, I would say your best bet would be a watch repairer. Your local jeweler does not repair watches but sends them out: find out where they send them. Usually located in some jewelry center.
This same thing happend to me awhile back. Camera seem to be dead for several weeks until one day I tried turning on and then off the night vision. The was the usual click inside the camera and all was well after that. I still use the camera.
