Having problems with your Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W35 Digital Camera ?

I receive ''access'' error

\015 I receive "access" error when I turn on my camera. The lens continually tries to open and close. This repeats until I get a message: to power off and restart again. I tried that many times with no success. I change my battery with no success. I changed my memory stick also without any success.\302\240I have tried to do a reset, however I cannot get access to any function keys to begin the reset function\302\240\015

Answers :

The "Access" will stay there until your camera passes it's self lens test. The test runs 3 times, then gives up with an error message. The cause of this problem is most likely a grain of sand somewhere in the lens. Only a camera tech could possibly ever hope to find it. Replace the camera lens.

I have a Panasonic VDR-M50 camcorder. I was attempting to finalize several DVD-R discs and received two different error codes : 0901 and 0280. After receiving the codes, the camcorder locked up and refuses to even correctly access the disks now. I really don't want to lose this data, and Panasonic technical support wants me to send in the camera. However, the camera successfully finalized other discs in between the ones with errors and also still properly records on a new disc. Please help!
