Having problems with your Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W55 Digital Camera ?

When I turn it on the lens goes in and out 3 times then error message turn power off and on


Answers :

If the camera has recently been dropped you may have lens damage that\015\012is preventing it from powering up. If it hasn't been dropped your\015\012problem\015\012may be due to weak/worn out batteries or corrosion on the battery\015\012contacts inside the camera which can\015\012prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera.\015\012Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and\015\012wipe 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 into\015\012the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of\015\012the batteries and place them back in the camera and give them a full\015\012charge (assuming that you are using rechargeable batteries). This\015\012cleaning clears\015\012the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, it may be time for new batteries, or the\015\012camera may have\015\012a problem that requires professional repair.

I have a SONY Cybershot DSC W150. When I turn it on the lens goes kut and comes back in several times, then I get the error message "Turn the Power Off and On Again", but doing that does not change anything. This is one of four digicams I own (also a Nikon D90, SONY DSC F717, and a Canon) and I like the W150 for some purposes because it is compact and has a viewfinder, not just a screen. I have been unable to find a similar camera. What can I do to fix the problem? Gerry Meisels [email protected]
