Having problems with your Sony Cyber-shot DSC-S600 Digital Camera ?

I have the DSC-S600 It keeps telling me to hit the power on button and then turn back on. When I do nothing happens and keeps giving me the same message. What do I do??


Answers :

Hello and welcome to fixya.

Unfortunately this message and similar messages are shown on the camera when there is a internal fault in the camera, sometimes the issue can be related to the lens, there might be dust or sand inside the lens or similar that is preventing the lens from properly extending, or some of the gears migh be broken.

The problem can also be something else, but it is definitely a internal problem in the camera that you can't solve without taking it apart.

I wouldn't want you to take the camera apart unless you know what your doing.

I would recommend that you get in touch with a local camera repairer or a company if you are outside of warranty to get a repair estimate and see if its worth it.

There is most likely noting that you can do at home to solve this issue. You can ofcourse try taking out the batteries from the camera for a hour and then trying again, but it most likely will not solve the problem.

Please get in touch with a repairer.

Thank you,

Power doesn't work properly. When I turn off camera with power button, lense stays out. When I turn on, the lense goes in then back out again, but after a few seconds, I get the message: "Please turn camera off then on again." If I don't do anything, the camera will turn off by itself, and the lense will go in. Battery is fully charged, and nothing dramatic happened to start this problem...

When I turn the camera on, the canon logo appears on the display and the red light in back above the menu button keeps blinking, but nothing happens.

When I plug the USB cable into the camera and my computer USB port nothing happens, but earlier I was able to upload pics okay. So what's up?

I have a Nikon D80 camera that is about 1 year old. I has worked fine until about 6 months ago. Sometimes when I turn it on and press the button to take the picture nothing happens. I have to wait awhile and keep playing with the button and then it will finally take the picture and act normal. This happens inside and out. Sometimes the flash will pop up outside in direct sunlight. Do I have some settings wrong or why is it acting like this?
