Hey raggedarmi,
\015\012 Leaving the camera on for an extended period of time should not cause the camera to no longer turn on. Make sure the lens cap is not on the camera when you turn it on, and make sure you are not using manganese batteries because they don't work with this camera. The camera will not operate while connected to a computer so make sure you are not connected to a computer. The camera might be in sleep mode so try pushing the shutter button or hitting the zoom lever. If none of these options work try putting in a brand new set of AA batteries and see if that works and if it does it probably means your rechargeable batteries are bad.

My S9600 was left unused [batteries left in camera] for several months. Now it will work fine with the mains adaptor, but is completely dead when on battery power. Have tried new batteries [rechargeable and 'ordinary'] - camera dead; have left on mains power for a few minutes, then switched to batteries, same result. Grateful for any suggestions...

My Sony Cyber-shot DSC-S600 stopped working. I press the power button and nothing happens. I tried changing batteries, but it shows no sign of life. It was left in the trunk of my car overnight, inside a luggage bag. The temperature was close to freezing, so maybe the cold weather had something to do with the problem. I left it in my closet for about a week, and when I tried to use it, the power would not turn on. Thanks for your time.

Several days ago I accidently left my camcorder in the "on" position. When I tried to turn it on yesterday it would not power up, so I changed to a charged battery, but still no power. I tried the AC adapter, but still no power. I tried reset, but nothing. I cannot get the camera to power up.

Same Problem When I hit the power button, it flashes, the HP logo comes up on the screen the lense retracts and comes back out and the power goes off. That's all it will do.

Lens stuck out No display No link to computer but will charge battery. Only way to power off is remove battery. Numerous key holds when power on result in no change. View lott's on FixYa. Try gentle but firm exercise of barrel, left right with success when some inward movement felt. Insert battery, power on, screen display yes, take picture yes [onboard memory as no SD installed for tests]. Will update if problem comes back. Gentle but firm is the key, good luck.
