Having problems with your Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W50 Digital Camera ?
Access Probelm with DSC-W50 camera
\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. \015\012\015\012I have tried to do a reset, however I cannot get access to any function keys to begin the reset function \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 heard that this situation is fixable if you take the camera cover off. Is this true? \015\012Thanks.\015
I was having the exact same issue with my dsc-w55 and I followed the solution of another post from this site which was:\015\012\015\012"There is a problem internally with the lens. Likely, the focusing lens is jammed up. The lens will need to be disassembled and fixed, if possible, or replaced.\015\012\015\012Occasionally, a good "whack" in your hand can fix it. Just don't hit the lens, or lcd; or you can break them. Then there will be more damage."\015\012\015\012I gave it THREE good "whacks" in the palm of my hand, was careful not to hit the lens or LCD and VOILA! I just shot a few pics with my camera and so far so good.\015\012\015\012Good luck!
I would just like to say i tried "tapping" it "hitting" it and all that other magic u all suggested. MINE IS FING BROKEN FOREVER. DON"T TRY THIS PEOPLE!!!! I'll be spending the $200.

I need some help to repair my Sony Cybershot DSC W50 camera. When you turn the camera on, it displays 'Access' for about 30 seconds, during which time the lens zooms in and out. Then it says 'Turn the power off and on again'. Nothing has happened to the camera - it has not been dropped and this fault just suddenly started. What can I do about this? I have had it just over a year. I’d be really grateful for any support! Thank you! Clare

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.
