I can only turn on my Cybershot DSC-N2 while the camera is in playback mode. I can look at the pictures and videos and change settings with no problem.. but when I try to switch to camera or video record mode the camera turns off by itself.

Hp945lens When I fix a wide angle lens to my camera and switch it on, the zoom tries to come out, fails and then turns the camera off. I'm assuming that because the screw-on lens is on the outer fixed lens this is stopping the zoom from coming out which then turns the camera off. What am I doing wrong?

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
