Having problems with your Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-S500 Digital Camera ?
Switches on and switches off immediately
\015 When the camera is switched on, it says cybershot and immediately switches off. The camera is less than a yr old and it has new bateries and there is a 4 GB mem card in it..\015
I had the exact problem. After searching online for multiple solutions, the following worked for me... Press and hold the power button while at the same time use your fingernail to pick and pull at the lens assembly. Pull the lens assembly at the circular ring gap between the housing and the barrel of the lens itself. It only took me about 3 to 5 tries to get it to work. It's been working fine ever since. Good Luck.
Thanks to LaurenAndKen,my camera is fixed man! i was planning to throw it away because im already pissed off, i tried new batteries and memory card but wont work,until i did what LaurenAndKen advise ***press and hold ON button and pull out lens assembly...now my camera is perfectly okay..
