Sony cyber-shot DSC-W210. On/off button does not work, but I can turn it on using the play button. Press the play button again to get to picture taking mode, but it will not take pictures. Then I get the E:91:01 error message that so many people seem to be talking about. I can remove this message by 'initialising' through the menu, but can't take pictures. I've also tried removing the battery, leaving for a while, then replacing, but to no avail. People seem to think this is a software prob
