Sony DSC-S600 Sorrry! What happens is this:- Turn camera on,Cybershot screen opens up with musical jingle then it will say "Access" then another screen opens up saying "Turn power off and on again". Sometimes you don't get the "Access" and it will go straight into the "Power off and on again" screen. Tried this - no good.
