Access Message Whenever I turn the DSC-W70 on it displays a black screen and the word "Access." At the same time the lens extends and retracts, however unlike some of the other problems people are having, the lens is not getting stuck. Also I also notice a faint clicking/buzzing sound from within the camera when the lens is still and not retracting/extending.

I had the "Access" error when turning on my Sony DSC-W70. The lens would go in and out a few times, and then I would be instructed to turn the power off and on again, which did not help. After reading comments from a few people with the same problem, I tried yanking on the lens when it was out and giving it a good couple of twists. I also took a q-tip with alcohol on it and cleaned all around the sides of the lens. Worked like a charm!

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.
