When I turn my DSC W230 Sony Camera on the lens opens and closes several times then finally closes and I get a message to turn it off and on again, but it just keeps doing the same thing. I have tired removing the battery for 20 minutes, reinitializing the camera and switching to different batteries that can power up my other camera.

When I turn the camera on, the lens cover opens and then closes. When I turn the camera off, the lens cover closes and then opens. So, how can I get the timing of the lens cover correct? Or can you tell me how I can keep the lens cover open all the time? (not the best solution but now I can't take a photo at all!)
