Having problems with your Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-P52 Digital Camera ?

Turns on but that's all

\015 When I turn on the camera, a message comes on the screen asking me to turn it on again. That's as far as it goes no matter how many times I turn it on. Prior to that, it began making some funny noises when I turned it on, a rather loud clicking sound.\015

As the lens comes out hold the outer len and lite  twist counter clock wise to make up the lens limit this seams to work on mine  
Oh yes the Sony Click When the camera powers up it must run a duty cycle to check that all circuits and the lenses are functioning properly. What you are hearing is most likely the gear assembly on the lens is out of time. one gear reaches its limit the motor doesn't know because another component is not is the proper orientation and on gear clicks over another. Never reaching the end The software does not get the information that everything is okay and does not allow the camera to function. Suggest professional Repair.

Dropped Camera. Basically, the thing stopped working. DMC-FZ1 It was dropped from a tripod it landed Lens DOWN. So it kind of smashed into it maybe? But nothing on the outside seems to be actually broken. The lens is crooked, but thats all that seems to be wrong. Yet it won't turn on at all. Maybe if someone could suggest something? Perhaps maybe something needs to be fidgeted around inside? Or is it a better idea if I pay a professional? But whatever the case. Anyone who has any suggestions it
