Sony DSC-S600 Sorrry! What happens is this:- Turn camera on,Cybershot screen opens up with musical jingle then it will say "Access" then another screen opens up saying "Turn power off and on again". Sometimes you don't get the "Access" and it will go straight into the "Power off and on again" screen. Tried this - no good. Changed batteries for fully charged brand new 2700mAh NIMH - 1.2V Uniross - still no good ! Any advice would be appreciated. Regards

When power is turned on the zoom lense moves in and out on its own for a couple of seconds then stops. Camera remains on (battery is charged) The message changes from "access" to "turn the power off and on again." When that is done the same process happens again. Photos can be retrieved that are in the memory to view but the problem is getting to the starting screen in order to take a picture. What's up with that? Hope you can help!

Access Message Whenever I turn the DSC-W70 on it displays a black screen and the word "Access."

Display problem Hello, I've had my SD1000 for less than 3 months. Sometimes the display goes black, I can still access the menu options and if I slide the button to review images they will display on the LCD panel. But even if I've just powered it on, the LCD is black, if I take a picture anyway, the picture is also black. Sometimes if I turn on the camera and turn it off again a few times it starts displaying correctly again. Is there a hardware problem with my camera or is this something I sho

Hi, I own a Sony Cybershot camera, and it has been giving a few problems as of this week. The lens keep re-adjusting in and out when I turn the camera on to take pictures. It however responds just fine when in picture-view mode. There is a screen prompt that says 'Access' when the camera is turned on, as well as the message 'turn off camera and start again'. I do not think that the camera had fallen at any time, and it is just under a year old. Thanks a lot for your response, Sarah.

My eos400d is taking photos but the lcd screen is not turning on at all. I cannot preview photos or access the menu. When it first did it the cf card started flashing wen I tried to take a photo.

My Sony DSC-W30 has a problem. When turned on the screen picture rarely can be seen. It is either completely dark and a picture taken will also turn out dark and unseen. Sometimes the screen will turn on and off many times and then turn dark. Sometimes I can smack it on my hand and it will go black or come back on. The anti-shake button sometimes allows it to come back on. I do not have any screen messages and all the other features seem to work but in a dark unusable screen.
