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.


They are trying to say that you may need to open the camera and check and clean the lens, because there's a big possibility that the lens is misaligned or worse its bad already and needs a replacement...Good luck......... ... Sony Digital Cameras

Neither the fujifilm 256MB xd card nor th enew Olympus 2GB xd card will work in the A340. I've put the card in and went to Format it in the camera as per teh menu.

Lens error When I first power on my camera, it tells me to retry power on. When I do, it says lens error and shuts down. The lens will extend and then close before the power shuts off, however it does not close fully. The protective shutter on the lens doesn't close completely. I have tried removing the battery and letting the camera sit for awhile hoping that the camera will reset, however this has been of no help.

My Canon Powereshot 200SX IS does not start properly. Display comes on but the lens stays closed inside and a led blinks. After a while display turns black, a beep comes on and the white text says: there is an error, try to start again. Starting it again brings exactly the same situation. Loosing the battery does not help either. Camera seems not to react to any control buttons. There has not been any any obvious reason for this, no falling onto the ground or any other impact.
