Hi, I have the Sony Cyber Shot DSC-W130 digital camera - whilst away on holiday a message appears when I turn on the camera "turn power off and on again". I have done so many times but it still comes up with the same message - hence not allowing me to take any pictures. I can view existing images through the window and I can download them fine - I just can't take any new ones. There is plenty of space on the card and a full battery. Any suggestions?

Battery Problem I have trouble with apparent battery failure due to bad contacts on the slide-out tray thingie that holds the batterys. Jamming it in several times when I change batteries sometimes helps, but often the camera will stop working in the middle of a shoot and indicate the battery is discharged. A quick in-and-out a couple of times of the thingie restores full battery power, but by then I've probably missed my picture. Anyone else have this problem? Other than that (and piss-poor aut
