I have a Sony Cybershot DSC W100. I accidentally dropped it and now it says 'Access' and the lens opens and closes three times then beeps and says, 'Turn the power off and on again'. I have done this and it still doesn't work. I tried to initialize the settings - that didn't work either. I even played around with the lens some, and that didn't fix it. If you have any other suggestions please help! I would hate to have to pay $130 bucks to have it fixed.

My Nikon D70 DSLR was fine when last used but after around three weeks when brought out to use again, the LED which signifies writing to the card is flashing - whether the power is on or off. Removing the CF card and reinserting it makes no difference. While this light is flashing the camera will not switch on or show any information in the LCD. It is about three years old and has been faultless until now. Any suggestions?
