A640 Lock-up Hi, The camera was working fine up until today when I took it out of the case, it was stuck, locked-up somehow. I haden't used it in a couple of days (had never had a problem with it before), and now, the only sign of life when pressing the ON/OFF button is the small green light underneeth turns on but nothing else powers up or happens. The only way to get the green light off again is to take the batteries out. Also, the lens is stuck open, and the zoom partially out. What should I

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. Sometimes the lens will come out and then the camera powers down with the lens stuck out. Other times it just shuts off before the lens even has a chance to come out. The camera has never been dropped or damaged.

Lense Issue When I turn on the camera the lense started to move out and then got stuck. How when you turn it on it just trys to adjust the lense but again it is stuck. I am required to remove the batteries to get it to shut off. I was going ot open the case but three of the screws requires a nice special allen wrench, but guess what, they did not provide it. Any ideas where I can score one?

My lense is stuck open despite turning my camera off. On turning my camera on I am told ''turn camera on off then on'' but the lense does not retract. I am able to view all photos on the memory card as well as turn the camera on and off, however at each point when the lense should retract it stays fixed out. Can this be fixed?

Power doesn't work properly. When I turn off camera with power button, lense stays out. When I turn on, the lense goes in then back out again, but after a few seconds, I get the message: "Please turn camera off then on again." If I don't do anything, the camera will turn off by itself, and the lense will go in. Battery is fully charged, and nothing dramatic happened to start this problem...

I cannot turn the camera on. I guess it was dameged during my holidaying. I recall that, the camera was excidently turned on inside its holder and as the mechanism tried to push the lense out from the body it was blocked by the bag holding the camera. Now, when I try turning the camera on, the lense could not move forward at all. It gives cracking noises and turns itself off. Could this problem be fixed or better to buy a new camera? Arthur

Lense error- can hear lense trying to open, but lense does not come out of the camera body. This is weird because the camera was not dropped/hit/damaged. I used the camera to take night images of a rising moon. It took pics fine, but about an hour later when I tried to turn the camera on to review the pics, I got the lense error as noted above. 4 days later, same problem. The manual doesn't have any troubleshooting for this problem. Any suggestions? Anyone.....? Thanks for your time!
