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

Access problem with DSC-W50


\015 I receive "access" error while the lens continually tries to open and close. This repeats until I get a message several minutes later telling me "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.\015\012\015\012I have tried to reset camera, but I am unable to press any function keys to begin the reset process. \015\012\015\012My daughter had same problem with her Cyber-shot several years ago too, but her camera was unfixable. Is there any way to diagnose this problem. I dont want to spend about $75 to have a Sony authorized dealer tell me that the camera is not fixable (of course the camera fell out of warranty about 5 or 6 months ago).\015\012\015\012I have also seen some blogs stating that if you unscrew the cover then the camera can still be fixed. Is this true? \015\012Thanks\015

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.

Adding WD-40 Will adding a little bit of wd-50 to the camera zoom swivel head affect the camera? I probably should have sprayed it on a napkin and wiped it but I sprayed it directly on. But not much at all. But my camera has completely stopped working and its stuck with the zoom out and everything. But it might also be a battery problem since I dont have my battery charger and dont know if the camera died but I dont think it would die with the lens still exposed. I have a Sone DSC-W50.
