Having problems with your Sony Digital Cameras ?
Dropped sony camera randomly turns on batery is
\015 My daughter dropped her camera - we tried to charge the battery but the camera randomly turns on and off - camera dept at store said that if camera is dropped it will no longer work - any help??thanks\015
The drop likely damaged the lens tube (housing) or jarred the zoom mechanism off of its track. Either condition causes the camera to shut down to prevent further damage. There is no safe DIY fix, but the camera can be professionally repaired. Contact Sony through their web site or visit a local camera shop (not the department store) and get a repair estimate -- you will need to decide if the camera is worth the cost of the repair.

Everytime I turn on my sony camera. The lens pop out and in again. I can't figure why it's doing this! ALso the message turn off and then on again keeps appearing. I tried this, but it didn't work!

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

My Sony DSC-W80 camera displays "Turn the power off and on again" after the lens make several efforts to protrude fully. The last time I used this camera, I was under the impression the battery had died, and indeed, it was rather low. But now the battery has fully charged and it will not work. I did not bang the camera on anything or drop it. The camera case for it is kept clean of dirt, sand, etc. There is no visible debris on the visual lens themselves that I can see in the few attempts it

Dropped camera Though my camera was in a well-padded case, the contact with the cement in the metro-station was too much. Should I bother paying $211 for a Sony authorized dealer to even look at it, or should I apply the $211 to a new camera? The camera turns on but no longer takes pictures and won't shut off unless I remove the battery. My thanks in advance.

My Camera will not turn on I have a Canon PowerShot SD750 Digital Elph. About 2 weeks ago, it stopped working and just randomly would not turn on. The strange part is, I had just used it about an hour before it stopped working and it seemed to be just fine. I didn't drop it or damage it in any way, so I don't understand why it just stopped turning on just out of the blue.

My wife has a Sony SuperShot DSC-T300 camera that periodically (for no apparent reason) starts to vibrate and prevents her from taking clear pictures. It seems to happen randomly and go away randomly as well. Is there some setting that she has set incorrectly? Can this be turned off? What is the purpose of this anyways?
