Having problems with your Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-S40 Digital Camera ?

The end of my av cord broke off in the camera usb port, then the camrea shut off and wont come back on, how do you fix this/



Answers :

That shouldn't cause the camera power off unless there was a short. I'm thinking the
camera shorted out which is strange. Did you try to take the part out with tweezers (while
the camera was on)? That would probably cause a short. Anyhow, remove the part
while the camera is off and with the batteries removed, then try to power it on. If
\015\012all fails then the camera has a short and the board will need to be replaced.
