Having problems with your Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W50 Digital Camera ?

The lens keeps going in and out and the screen is reading access


Answers :

Your problem may be due to weak/worn out batteries or corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera\015\012which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the\015\012camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with\015\012a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush,\015\012steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen\015\012into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of\015\012the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears\015\012the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, your batteries may need to be replaced, or the camera may have\015\012a problem that requires professional repair.

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!

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.

Finally, I gently pushed the lenses back to the body of the camera (as they seemed to be trying to go back to the camera), I am still getting the zoom error reading a
