That's good, but I'd like to get info to fix it myself. I'm lookin for information to find out what I need to do to repair my own camera if possible. I already have a post on my DSC P32 power won't stay on. After posting that I really didn't know if this is where I need to be. So,,,,,I was asking.

If the fuses are still good on the board then you probably burnt out one of the switching ICs on the main board. You'll most likely have to replace the entire board.



The sony part number for the entire board is A7078685A. You can go to http://servicesales.sel.sony.com/web/productSearch.doand search by part number, but I'm sure it'll cost way more than you're willing to spend.

Your best bet would be to look on ebay for a parts camera.

Your thread hopefully won't encourage newbies to start taking their cameras apart.

The reliability of most digital cameras is so high, that when a problem occurs

it is best to get it repaired at an authorized repair center, if it is worth a repair.

Years ago cars were not that reliable and most of us did our own tune-ups, etc.

Today my new car is so reliable I have no need to look under the hood, and when I do open the hood I don'tknow whatI am looking at.
