Having problems with your Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-S500 Digital Camera ?

Sony DSC 500 doesnt start when i want to.

\015 I am facing a peculiar problem.My Sony DSC 500 which is bought in 2007, has given me a good work but of late,something strange is happening with it.It isnt getting started when i want to,I tried changing the batteries,bought two new sets of rechargeable batteries including one of Sony.but still it doesnt work.If i press hard on the battery place,it does gets started suddenly and then it gets switched off.At time i find it on inside my pouch even though i have put it off.It looks like there is some sort of loose connection with the battery setup.Can anyone has a solution with it.I still have a year and half left for the warranty to expire.\015

Answers :

Have you tried cleaning the battery contacts inside the camera? The problem that you describe is frequently due to a corrosion buildup that prevents the full power of the batteries from flowing to the camera. Remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during the cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and reinsert them into the camera. This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time, and I hope it works for you.
