Please remove the battery of the camera and wait for 30 min and then power it on and see if the problem exists ...
IF it is then there is hardware problem in camera you need to get it serviced by the company if its within warranty or give local camera center ....


Good luck...

Zoom lens will not retract- camera turns on and off but nothing changes and it wont take pictures. When I turn it on the lens clicks but does not move. The camera keeps telling me to turn it on and off again but nothing different happens when I do. The battery is fully charged and it was working fine. Does it have a reset button? If so where?

When power is turned on the zoom lense moves in and out on its own for a couple of seconds then stops. Camera remains on (battery is charged) The message changes from "access" to "turn the power off and on again." When that is done the same process happens again. Photos can be retrieved that are in the memory to view but the problem is getting to the starting screen in order to take a picture. What's up with that? Hope you can help!
