Having problems with your Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T20 Digital Camera ?

Cyber-shot T2 Hello This is probably a long shot but I have had my Sony cybershot T2 for about 1 month now and about 2 weeks ago it just died on me and it won't turn on. I didn't drop it, there is a not a single scratch on it, i have charged the battery 2 full but it just wont turn on. At the beginning it would flash as if it was turning on and then stop. Now it won't even do that. I don't know what to do as I loved that camera and it's very new. It worked perfectly before. If you could help me

Hello Henrietta,
\015\012
\015\012Your problem is exactly my T2's problem. I returned it to the vendor and I was informed that the board is damaged and possible reason is it was dropped. Just like you, I didn't drop my T2. I wish there will be a good samaritan who can suggest a fix for the camera is quite a lot of money and being able to just use it for a month is quite awful.
Hi-

I don't know if I can do much besides commiserate and tell you about this *completely* outlandish workaround I arrived at via trial-and-error for my DSC-T20 with a similar problem.

A little background: I've had my T-20 for about 8 months. About 4-ish months ago I started getting this 62:02 error message onscreen. Still get it all the time. And yes, I love(d) my camera, too.

The error darkens the edges of pix, disallows me from turning it off w/o popping the battery out, disallows me turning it back on (sometimes), and causes a steady degradation of focus/auto-focus over a matter of seconds.

When I could turn it on, sometimes the green pilot light would blink on, the screen would say "SONY", and then it would die before the cyber-shot logo popped up. For a time (while it worked) I found that if I kept the "take picture button" pressed down while it was booting-up, it would hiccup/blink off for a sec--then start up normally.
Of course, this workaround doesn't always work, as the camera won't even turn on at all to start it's boot. Workaround: I found that if I pressed the sliding cover quite hard (the auto-ON switch--which is how it seems yours works, too) , as I slid it down v e r y slowly (while continuing to exert pressure), the camera would turn on.

I hope that this is helpful, and if it's not, I suggest you goof around with yours to see if you can figure out some of your own ridiculous (and in a reasonable world: *totally* unnecessary) workarounds.

best-
