Suddenly a day ago, I turn it on and it pretends to "Boot" up....the display comes on with the "Finepix" graphic...the lens "Moves" into position....the "Green" power light on the right grip side come on, (and stays on)....then, Nothing. When I try to turn it off and restart...nothing. The camera will not even turn "off" unless I open the battery hatch, (I put a fresh set in). Please help...I love this camera.

Hi welcomejee, I read all your solutions regarding the digital camera Sony DSC N2. I really have to thank you for your precious Some of the problems are very similar to mine: After the camera fell on the ground from about 2 meters in off mode the lens would come out and immediately back in 4 times in a row. After that the lens is back in, a beeping sound comes up and on the display it is written to "Turn the power off and on again". Of course that does not help at all. The lens is opening


George, this is most likely a lens issue, and more precisely, probably a stripped gear when it fell. You will have to disassemble the entire unit to get at the lens assembly, and will probably be a professional by the time you get through! ... Digital Cameras
