DSC-S500 Zoom goes out wont' stay Red light comes on in front
\015 I hope you can help. When I push the power button, the screen\015\012lights up, the zoom comes out and immediately goes back and turns\015\012off. There is a little red light that comes on during this action\015\012on the bottom front. I cleaned where the battery goes. I\015\012just put in new batteries. \015\012\015\012Thank you for your help.\015
Nothing worked, so I bought a new camera.
I had the same problem with my Sony DSC-S500, I called Sony for a solution and they told me to take the batteries out and hold down the power button for 10 seconds, after trying that the camera would turn on the off again. I decided to hold down the power button and the button that takes the picture for 10 seconds and after putting the batteries back in the camera, it worked fine. I think that the picture button was stuck. Hope this works for you.

Only about 9 months after buying my camera, It wouldn't turn on. I'll plug it in and the light will come on that it's charging, but when I got to turn it on, it turns on for a split second (and the zoom lense comes out) and then it turns itself right back off (and the zoom lense goes in). I thought that it needed a new battery so I bought one and it's still doing the same thing. I emailed Kodak and they said that I should just send it into them for a $60 repair fee...lame. Any suggestions?
