My cybershot won't turn back on

Q: My cybershot won't turn back on

I took pictures last night & this morning, but this afternoon - when I turn the camera on the lens goes in and out 3 or 4 times then I get a message on the screen that says turn camera off and back on. I have done that repeatedly, took out the battery, plugged the bettery into its charger, nothing works. I got this for Christmas just a couple years ago, so its not that old. What is going on? I need an answer ASAP. I have flown across the coutnry to see my brandnew grand son for the holiday weekend for the first time & now I can't take pictures! HELP! Please write sallies2 at the yahoo.

Preferred Solution: My cybershot won't turn back on

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Sony camera problem.

This could be happening for several reasons. The camera could have a software /firmware fault, or it could be a problem with something preventing the lens from moving as it should.
But it's just as likely to be the Li-ion battery not holding a charge as it used to.
If you have a mains adapter, try that instead of the battery, see if it works then.
You may need to buy a new battery, as they don't last for more than a couple of years, especially with heavy use.
If you can get the screen on using the mains adapter, go into the menu and do a 'factory reset'. Take the memory stick out first.
All faults are repairable, but you would do well to get a quote first, as a new camera may be cheaper, (unfortunately).
The pictures on your memory stick are not affected by camera faults, as a rule, but if you have another one, try it, just in case there is a problem with the edge connector on it.

Hello Microsoft team,
We need for an application to unplug and replug usb3 - not physically but with a program.
We checked a lot on the internet but did not find answer how to do it in windows 8.1 pro (in c++).
We know that hibernation creates something alike, but how can we only turn down the power of usb3 and return the power back on back via program (in c++).
Thank you for your help.

Running Windows Vista Ultimate.

Display turns off after about fifteen minutes regardless of whether I am actively using the computer or not. The only way to turn the display back on is to close and then open the lid. This disconnets me from AOL, so I have to sign back on again, and if I was emailing, I might lose my current email.

Under Power Options, I have 'Turn off the display' set to Never for both On Battery and Plugged in. Under 'Put the computer to sleep' I have both On battery and Plugged in set to never. Nonetheless, the display still shuts off while I am working.

What do I need to do to prevent the display from turning off at odd intervals?

Once again the computer impaired one comes to the table of knowledge...

I shut down my PC, fans stop, lights go out. About 6-8 mins later it starts up again, been doing this for four days now. I ran a virus scan which came out clean. The only way to keep it turned off is to unplug it. The only tinkering I've done lately is to try to open a port on my router (which I didn't get done, forgot password and reset button doesn't work). I don't think my PC is set to hibernate, I have never used that feature.

Is there something I should check?

Last night, my computer turned off while I was using it. It wouldn't turn back on, and everything else on the surge protector was working fine. Since I've had problems with power supplies before, I turned the switch to the off position, removed the power cord, and let it cool off, in case it had overheated. When I tried to turn it back on, the power light and the LEDs on the inside blinked on and then back off. They were on for maybe a tenth of a second. During that time, there's no sound of my computer trying to turn on or anything, just the lights. Does anybody have any idea what this might be, or where to begin to troubleshoot??

btw, I know I mentioned LEDs, but I don't have any extensive mods, no overclocking, etc. Just pretty lights.

TIA for any help!!

It sounds like the PS went out, or is going out. If you can get your hands on a volt/ohm meter you can test it, or just replace it and see what happens.

I'm baffled.

Had to reinstall Windows XP. It appears there are issues with SP2 involving the video graphics card and the sound. Now I'm stuck. I thought that if I chose "do not use this device" under "Device usage" on the display adaptor tab, that it would pick the right adaptor.

Anyway, my screen went blank and I tried to reboot in safe mode and it sticks at mup.sys. I disabled mup and it now sticks at "nid" something or other.

I got the bright idea to use "Windows Narrator" to try and reenable the adaptor but I think the reinstall or the SP2 killed my sound.

Now I'm really stuck. Is there a way to reenable VGA adaptor from the command prompt in recovery mode?

My laptop seems to have a lot of CPU problems, always running a noisy sound, it's running really slower.

My friend has the same laptop with XP on it and it's pretty fast, It's like i am using dial UP and he's using DSL :P I need a lot of time to open a folder and view anything...

So how can i turn back to windows XP? I have the XP DVD.

Thanks !

Hi. I have a Epson Workforce WF-3640 printer. I was in the middle of printing out my son's term paper, when I heard it stop working. Noticed it was off. Tried to turn back on. Nothing. Check cord to make sure connected securely at back of printer and at outlet. Also check for a tripped breaker. And nothing. I just bought this brand new from Best Buy in February. Please help.

An easy way to troubleshoot the case power switch is to completely disconnect it from your motherboard. Then take a regular screwdriver, and just quickly touch (short) the two pins that the case's power switch usually connect to.

Hopefully your system will fire up, and you'll know you have a dead power switch!

Hi guys!

New here, just put Windows 7 on my laptop on Sunday. I'm really liking it thus far.

One thing I noticed maybe just today. When the screen shuts off due to time or the lid being closed, it doesn't seem to want to turn back on. I can put into standby and bring it back out and it works just fine. But, I'd rather not have to do that all the time.

It's a Dell Inspiron E1505 with a ATI Radeon X1400 video card if that helps at all.

If you need more info, let me know. Thanks!

Before I found all of the USeful info here on the
MSblast virus I was trying to fix the problem of the RPC restarting my computer..

It got to the point where I disabled the RPC in the COMPUTER MANAGEMENT Tool under services for my one and only hardware profile.. DOh..not a smart move...

Now when I start up, either in normal or safe mode,
most of my critical windows services just dont run.

My question is this :

Is there a way to get these services started up or enable them again so I can run windows normally and apply the MSblast fix.?

Basically, I think XP needs the RPC service to even consider allowing me to enable it again..

A:How to turn back on my wireless components?

Check in the BIOS (Setup) to see if the wireless adapter somehow got disabled.

With laptop unplugged and battery removed take the wireless card out and carefully reinsert it (maybe it got loose).

If neither of these work the adapter has probably died, or there has been a failure in the part of the motherboard to which the adapter connects.

Hello, I have a brand new HP Spectre which has only been used a few times. When I close the lid of the laptop, it goes into sleep mode, similarly when I press the power button once it sleeps. My problem is that when I open the lid and press a key, or open it and press the power button again, the keyboard lights up, the fan goes mental, but the screen never turns on. I've left it for upwards of an hour before and it doesn't turn on. When I put the laptop in sleep mode also, after about 5 minutes the fan goes mad. This is awful for when I'm trying to transport my laptop without having to turn it fully off. Should I take it back as it's still under warranty? Or how can I fix this?

This happened once, and seemed to fix on its own a few months back. Anyhow, my Vista PC is starting up, then about 2 minutes in, the monitors (dual set up) go to sleep. The pc stays on, but i cant get back in. I have to turn off the system and restart it, only for the same thing to happen again. This happens in safe mode as well.

The pc is not set to go into hibernation mode, there is not even a screen saver set. I have no idea why this is happening, or how to fix it. Ive tried a system restore to no avail. Does anyone have any ideas what this problem is, and how to fix it?

(I havent tried a new graphics card, but the card seems to be ok)

I tried, but the option to turn it back on is greyed out, I ran a Microsoft antivirus scanner and it came back clear.

I installed Spybot S&D. because of that Windows thinks there is another anti virus software installed and disables Defender. Uninstalling Spybot S&D automatically enabled Defender again

I bought this back in July. When it came in I turned it on to make sure that it worked then i turned it off and put it back in the box. It has been off until today. I turned it on and I noticed it was going very slowly. The mouse pad would not click and I could not adjust the sound with the keyboard. Everything would take a long time to open. I tried to turn the laptop off but it did not turn off when i pushed the power button. The laptop finally turned off when I went to power then pushed restart. It took about 5 mins to turn off but now it will not turn back on. The power button is still on but the screen is black.

Thank you for following this thread nbsp I have recently recieved a refurbished X Yoga which has run extremely well until three days ago When I first recieved the laptop I noticed only that the battery charged light and the screen notification were not aligned The light next to the charger would not Shuts turn and does back down on X1 Yoga indicate it was charged long before the screen would agree This wasn't that big of a deal but it may have led to my next issue nbsp X1 Yoga Shuts down and does not turn back on Three days ago the touchscreen and mouse started to malfunction X1 Yoga Shuts down and does not turn back on On the right side of the screen there was the mouse and three circles frozen but I could still use the mouse through intuition and some guesswork The visible point of the mouse would flicker back and fourth between where it actually was and the right side of the screen Later that evening I closed the laptop and it died I tried to charge the laptop but no matter how long it was charged or how long I held the power button nothing happened Essentially it became a very expensive brick nbsp Yesterday I charged the laptop again just out of desperation and it came to life It made a sound like a dial-up and just turned on as if nothing happened Everything seemed to be all right until it crashed again and now is currently dead nbsp Any suggestions The laptop is still under warranty since I got it about three weeks ago nbsp I just can't turn it on to use Lenovo Support

A:The volume wont turn back on help

Did this computer come with Windows 7 preinstalled, or was it an upgrade?

Reason I ask:

If it came preinstalled, then the driver has become corrupted.

If it was upgraded, maybe the driver isn't compatible with Windows 7 and needs to be updated.

I've already consulted Samsung about this issue, and they want me to Refresh (windows 8) my laptop. I have important programs and I DON'T WANT TO DO THAT.

Started about half an hour ago, I plugged my laptop into the wired connection because it was downloading 6 GB. Plugging in a cord activates Airplane mode. In theory, once out of Airplane Mode, WiFi will turn back on. NORMALLY IT DOES, BUT NOW IT DOESN'T. THIS IS REALLY PISSING ME OFF.

My laptop  (Dell Inspiron 15 model 3531) turned off and will not turn back on. I've tried removing the battery and using the power cord, however, every time I plug the power cord in the light on it turns off. I've tried removing the battery and pressing the power button down for 30 seconds and then plugging the power cord back into it, with the battery in.....same, no beeping or anything. I don't know if it's under warranty as I got it from school and they are now closed (ITT TECH). I have an older inspiron, but this one had all of my programs from school. Thank you for your help.

I was doing work on my laptop when suddenly it made a small "bzz" sound as if powering down and switched off. It will not turn back on and I have tried removing the battery for 5 minutes and putting it back in with and without AC plugged in, but it will not turn back on. I haven't really had any problems at all before this, and I have a lot of vital work that I had not yet backed up that I really can't lose. It is 4 years old and I got it in 2012 so I'm pretty sure it's out of warranty.  Any suggestions to turn it back on/ get back any work I may have lost?

I have tried everything! My roommate turned it off and I can't get it back on. I have Windows XP Pro. I went to control panel and phone and modem and can't find anything. I also went into internet options and can't find it there. The volume settings are on and are on high. What is M0L0? I saw a piece of paper in her hand writing and that is in the advanced tab in the modem properties. Can you help?


A:How Do I turn Modem Volume back on?

Modem init strings

M0 Speaker always off
M1 Speaker on during connection
M2 Speaker always on (very noisy)
L0 Lowest volume
L1 Lowest volume (redundant)
L2 Medium volume
L3 Maximum volume

So change the init string to M1L2

I've followed instructions through just about every source I could find and nothing seems to be helping. I've gone through the system properties-system protection, but it won't let me click on anything. It's just not giving it to me as an option to click on anything, not even to change between the drives. I'm signed in as the administrator (I'm the only user on this computer) but it simply won't let me. I'm at 50% available disc space, so I don't see that being the problem (could be wrong). The only thing I can think of is the virus issue I recently got through. It was one of those rogue 'antivirus' fake it cleared up, but could it have screwed this part up?

We've had a recurrent problem with our Dell desktop (about four years old; Vista operating system) freezing up while videos are playing, usually on children's websites, for some reason (like Nick Jr. or, for example). The video freezes and there is a loud buzzing sort of sound. Ctrl/Alt/Delete does nothing; we have to manually shut the computer off. The second to last time it happened, it would not turn back on. After considerable tinkering, it did finally come back on; weirdly after the ethernet was disconnected and reconnected. This time, it will NOT come back on. It is a doorstop. Just give it to me straight... Are we screwed?? lol...

And we came to a conclusion that the problem sits inside the computer.

I just uninstalled Mcafee Security Suite following their instructions for Win 10.  I now can not get Defender to turn back on.
I get a pop up saying another program is disableing Defender.
I was not aware Emsisoft would block/disable Defender. At the moment Emsisoft is the only security program I have left running.
Any ideas?

A:Windows Defender will not turn back on.

Since Windows 8/10 Defender includes anti-virus protection, it typically is disabled by the installation of a third-party anti-virus your case McAfee Security Suite probably disabled it to begin with. However, uninstalling McAfee was not enough. Emsisoft Anti-Malware is an antivirus platform that includes anti-malware protection...EAM combines its technology with Bitdefender Anti-Virus. Windows Defender will remain disabled until that EAM has been completely uninstalled.After removal of the third party anti-virus, Windows 8/10 Defender needs to be activated if you choose to use it. When uninstalling the third-party anti-virus Defender should automatically turn on. In some cases you may receive a message indicating your system has no here to turn on Windows Defender. If not, and Defender remains disabled, you will need to manually turn it on.Since you are using Emsisoft, there is no need for Windows Defender.

Last night I decided to let my game idle while I went to bed. As the computer is in my room and I didn't want the screen light to keep me up I decided to turn down the brightness. So I went to the right side windows 8 menu clicked on settings and pressed brightness. Now I accidentally turned it down to zero and I let my mouse go.

So now my screen is black. This wouldn't be a problem if the brightness buttons work but they don't (didn't install the boot camp drivers)
Is there any way I can recover this? Or would I have to reinstall my pc?

You can't turn it on without being there.

Usually there is a BIOS setting about what to do after a power failure that includes restarting. But the program would need to be running as a service because if just a program, it would not be running after a restart.

We have a vendor provided web application that uses I.E. as the browser. Occasionally, the customer will choose the <Back> button in I.E., in error. Doing this can leave the current record incomplete, and unaccessable because ownership was not assigned to it.

Does any one know if there is a way to have the web application disable the <Back> button in I.E.?

Thank you in advance for any assistance, knowledge, etc. given to me regarding this matter.

Regards, and have a GREAT day!!!!

A:[resolved] How Can I Turn Off The <Back> Button?

I do not know of a way to turn off or remove the forward or back button in IE. However, if you go to View, Toolbars, and uncheck Standard Buttons, you loose the forward and backward buttons, along with other items that may be necessary. You may be able to make a custom toolbar with some of the items that are missing? Look at Customize in the bottom of the drop box.

It appears in Mozilla Firefox you can take away just the back button by dragging it from the toolbar. You might try and see if you can use Firefox with your application.

A:Laptop turns off, won't turn back on...

Almost certainly a hardware problem, and I would guess unrelated to the reinstall of Windows.

Software problems do not cause such "movement sensitive" issues.

Mind you, about the last thing I would ever do would be to try to invoke Standby before Windows was fully installed! But thats unlikely to be the problem. I would think that service is needed, unless you have microsurgery and microelectronics skills.

Recently, my laptop shut down and I havn't been able to turn it on since, I thought it might have been my Power Cord, so i got that replaced, but it still never worked?
Nothing works, nothing works when i press the power button, I tried taking out the battery and power cord, etc. but still nothing...

I don't think it is the motherboard because I recently had my motherboard replaced with a brand new one, so I don't really know the problem?

Could somebody please help me...?

Hi Howlett93,
Welcome to Techspot.

Just a couple of question:

Why was the orgigional motherboard replaced?

What is the make of the Laptop?

What did you do the day before is didnt turn on again?

CAn we have more PC specs? eg operating sytem RAM etc.

When you tired taking out the battery did you hold down the powerbutton for about 0 second to get rid of any remaining charge.

This camera (I recently got it for my birthday) takes photos where reds are much brighter than they actually are. I was hoping someone knew how to fix it, as it's too late to return it. If not...could someone direct me to some good point and shoots?

When I first started using my p won't light turn back off when displa... external p50 I hooked p50 back light won't turn off when external displa... up my Dell display using the mini display port and set it to only use display in windows and it would display the Lenovo boot screen on the external display and the p display would be completely off Everything was as I wanted it Except I wanted to run hyper-v and I thought maybe it would be nice if all my cables went out the back so p50 back light won't turn off when external displa... I tried the hdmi and nbsp played around in the bios to get hyper-v working nbsp Now p50 back light won't turn off when external displa... I the boot screen nbsp doesn't show on the external monitor and as others have reported the hdmi is intermittent After booting the external monitor comes up at the windows log in and the laptop display is black but the backlight is obviously on It does this with hdmi and mini display port It does this even if I change display priority or delay in the bios I've reset the bios which doesn't actually reset the virtualization settings fyi I've even reinstalled windows nbsp The only way to get the display to turn off is to extend the display to and then extend the display only to nbsp Any ideas I hope I've been fairly clear

A:p50 back light won't turn off when external displa...

Absolutely. I have exactly the same problem with P50 and WIndows 10.This has happened on a w530 with Win 8.1 also, but then the NVIDIA control panel had access to teh laptop monitor, and by turning it on and off again solved the problem. However, in Windows 10 the NVIDIA control panel only "sees" the external monitors connected to the dock.

I have a Toshiba laptop that shut off by itself and won't turn back on. The LED lights will not even come on. I have only had it for 2 years but I use it a lot. The warranty is no good anymore so that is not an option. When I plug the power cord into the wall it still doesn't work so I know its not the battery and I the power cord I have works with an older Toshiba laptop (broken beyond repair) so I know its not that. I have tried the method where you take out the battery and hold the power button down but it still doesn't work.

Anybody have any suggestions?

Toshiba Satellite L305-S5920

A:Toshiba laptop turned off and will not turn back on

It sounds like your dc jack might need replacing if there is no LEDs when you plug it into the wall can you try this on your laptop the next time you plug into the wall riddle the cord near where it plugs into the laptop and tell me if the LEDs come on.

A:Windows 8 computer shut off, will not turn back on.

Sometimes it's as simple as the power adapter has failed, it ran on battery until it drained, and then shut off. If you have access to another Dell compatible power adapter from a family member or friend try that first.

Is it less than a year old? If so you could try to get warranty service on it from Dell.

Definitely don't go and buy a new laptop without at least taking it to a service center to have it checked out.

I have a ABIT SLI Mobo, 64 bit Dual 3800+AMD Proc, 6800GS PCI-Ex16 Card and Antec PSU.

Built system was running awesome for 3 weeks. Rendered an Image and left it running and left the house. Came back and it was OFF. WONT RESTART!

I see a red light glowing on MOBO but when I unplug the cord it goes out and comes back on when I replug it in.

I figured the PSU was fine because of the red light coming on and off. SO i replaced the MOBO. Still nothing.

Is is possible that the Graphics Card took a poop?? Would that cause the system not to turn on if it died(fans ect....)

Does the red light mean that the PSU is bad??

Any help would be great.

A:Computer died! Wont turn back on???? Help!

unless the video card has some kind of short in it then that should not keep the system from booting or at least giving you some beeps. if the power supply went bad it is possible that not only it is dead but that it damaged other components. like the CPU, ram and video card.

if you have access to another PSU you should try it. if not, places like office depot and circuit city sell antec power supply testers for 10-14 dollars.

Like a fool I allowed a family member to use my PC against my better judgment this afternoon and now I m regretting it as all hell has literally back or on turn install?!? cannot Webroot off, turned broken loose Long story short I restarted my PC about an hour ago and when it loaded back into Windows ultimate edition x it was instantly clear there was a problem I won t go through all the details but I noticed Webroot wasn t running anymore and Windows was prompting me to turn it back on When I went to do so instead of Webroot running I was presented with the Webroot installation window instead I entered my key Webroot Secure Anywhere and I got the following message - quot Webroot could not be installed This could potentially be caused by malware on the computer Would you like to try installing with a randomized filename quot The latter option doesn t work and as a result I cannot get Webroot running again I ve scanned the PC using Emsisoft Anti-malware which found three suspicious items and deleted them All subsequent scans come back clean but Webroot still won t start install Any idea what I can try next

A:Webroot turned off, cannot turn back on or install?!?

Some further "symptoms" I've come across -

Windows Experience Index has reset itself, i.e there's no score.

My network shares have been reset.

File types are no longer associated.

The hibernation file is back (I'd previously turned it off as I've got an SSD and wanted to save space)

I'm sure there's more I'm yet to spot.

Hi dolley:



Thank you for your request.  I am pleased to help!


When posting it is most helpful if you provide the model of your computer and what Operating system you are running.  I understand you accidentally turned off the Touchpad., and would now like to enable it. I am sending you a link to a page for  touchpad. You will need to select the one for your operating system click here. You should also be able to enable it,  following these steps. Click the Start button, and type in Mouse. Click on  Mouse to open it, click on Device Settings. You should be able to enable and disable the Touchpad here.

About a week ago I went into programs and features clicked turn windows features on and off and disabled all media features rebooted and they were gone. Awsome. Today I deiced to turn them back on but I can't i get an error message saying "An error has occurred. Not all of the features were successfully changed" then I am asked to restart, I do, I see windows changing features at shutdown/reboot but none of the media features are there. I tried running sfc /scannow and it found nothing. I also tried turning the features on and off in safe mode, but I got the same error message. Does anyone have a solution?

I upgraded to Windows 8.1 and all has been great except one thing. When I leave the computer for about 10 minutes or so, the display turns off like it is supposed to. If I want to turn the display back on though, I find I'm unable to with the mouse, keyboard, or power button. It's like it is stuck in limbo and I have to restart the PC. What's wrong with it?

A:Display won't turn back on after automatically turning off

IS this a Dell? Some Dell computers will go into some damned low-power mode, and the power light will change to Orange. The only way I have been able to fix it, was to put in a new power supply. I've done this for 2 workstations already.

Check your Power Light, is it Green or Orange, or blinking? If the computer is in sleep mode, it will Blink on and off once a second. Other blinking patterns are error codes. Sometimes a system will just get stuck in Sleep mode and you have to force it back on.

When you are trying to wake the system, does the Monitor come back on? I've had computers stall like this.

Try changing your advanced power settings:

Usually you can get to it by Control Panel, Power, Power Scheme, and open your scheme and go into Advanced. Try changing the values for "hard Drive Power Down", change it to 45 minutes. Also, try setting it so that the Monitor does not turn off, just enable toe screensaver after 15 minutes or so, then test it, make sure it recovers from Screensaver.

I don't know if you are just telling your monitor to go off or if you are allowing the computer to go into Sleep mode, I would change the Monitor Off to "Never" and just tell it to sleep after an hour of non-use.

Just try different variations, with the monitor turning off or staying on. You can always choose a Blank Screensaver.

A:PC hard to turn back on after power outage!!!

Possibly a failing power supply. If you want to leave your PC on all the time you should consider a UPS so the PC won't shut down abruptly when the power goes it.

You could try and disconnect the hard drive just to see if that changes how it powers on.

We just got a Compaq Presario S6500NX from a friend and it won't boot up. It won't even turn on!

When plugged in, the little green light in the back flashes and no amount of pressing the power button makes any difference.

The machine worked when it left his house, just not when it got to us.

What is the problem and how do we fix it?

I need some help, I think I turned my video drivers off and now I need some help getting them back on. A few weeks ago my graphics card failed and some dialogue box showed up and then the computer shut down. Since then I have replaced the card and solved another issue I was having. I can not get the computer to come back now, in normal start up or in any of the safe modes. When I start the computer now I get this:

POST beep
BIOS screen
Loading Operating system
Windows error recovery (with booting options)
The four little dots that come together to form the window with starting windows underneath it.
The screen then goes black I get my cursor arrow and it remains that way until I get pissed and shut it down.

How do I turn these back on and resume normal use of my computer? TIA!

A:Computer suddenly shuts off, won't turn back on

Try this... without the defective PSU(Power Supply) or any other power source plugged into the notebook.

Then try the 30-sec, no-battery installed thing.

With your PSU "exploding" - it might have fried your notebook. Hopefully data on drive is still good. Even if your notebook is alive, it may still be damaged... and those HPs are not quite good...

Look at ThinkPads (starting at $550 with Core2Duo CPUs) soon...
