Having problems with your Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-P200 Digital Camera ?

Sony Cybershot only works when plugged in

\015 Ok so my camera has been working fine for a year. Now, it only works when it is connected to the AC Adapter. It will not turn on at all when it isn't plugged in. I tried to get a new battery but the people at the store said that would not work. Is there anything that I can do? It is very annoying. \015\012\015\012Thanks!\015

Answers :

If there's no evident corrosion on the battery contacts, and your camera can't draw current from the batteries, I dont think there's anything you can do but sending it for repair.\015\012\015\012Try finding a repair shop that can handle it, because i think this might be a relatively easy fix, and sony will charge you an arm and a leg for it. Sorry I can't be of more help.\015\012\015\012Good luck!

I have a Sony Cybershot DSC W100. I accidentally dropped it and now it says 'Access' and the lens opens and closes three times then beeps and says, 'Turn the power off and on again'. I have done this and it still doesn't work. I tried to initialize the settings - that didn't work either. I even played around with the lens some, and that didn't fix it. If you have any other suggestions please help! I would hate to have to pay $130 bucks to have it fixed.


They are trying to say that you may need to open the camera and check and clean the lens, because there's a big possibility that the lens is misaligned or worse its bad already and needs a replacement...Good luck......... ... Sony Digital Cameras
