I have a Sony Cybershot DSC W100. I accidentally dropped it and now it says 'Access' and the lens opens and closes three times then beeps and says, 'Turn the power off and on again'. I have done this and it still doesn't work. I tried to initialize the settings - that didn't work either. I even played around with the lens some, and that didn't fix it. If you have any other suggestions please help! I would hate to have to pay $130 bucks to have it fixed.
They are trying to say that you may need to open the camera and check and clean the lens, because there's a big possibility that the lens is misaligned or worse its bad already and needs a replacement...Good luck......... ... Sony Digital Cameras

I dropped my Sony Cybershot DSC-H50 and now the lens won't come out. It turns on and all but it just tells me to turn it off and on again, and it won't let me look at the menu. the circles in the lens are closed and it's pitch black looking at the screen and I tried pressing the shutter button once I turn it on and it just says to turn it off and on again. Also 2 times this occurred, when I could see with it but everything was still blurry and the lens opened up a little but just those 2 times.

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?

DSC-W200 Frozen My W200 has the lens open (extended) and will not close. Additionally, when I press the power button or the play button on the back, the LCD lights up and says Sony, but nothing else happens. I've tried connecting it to my macbook, using a fully charged battery, memory card vs no card, etc. Nothing seems to work. If I press the power button a seond time, the green power light goes off, but the LCD still says Sony. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Not too eager to send it

My camera turns on by itself even with the slide in front in the closed position. The screen then shows the warning that the lens cover is closed. When I open and reclose the lens cover in 10 or so seconds the camera turns itself back on and repeats with the lens cover closed warning. The only way for me to turn the camera off at this point is to remove the battery. Help!
