Your problem may be due to weak/worn out batteries or corrosion on the\015\012battery contacts inside the camera\015\012which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the\015\012camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the\015\012batteries and wipe 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\015\012into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of\015\012the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears\015\012the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, chances\015\012are that your batteries need to be replaced because they're just too\015\012worn to properly power the camera.\015\012And then, of course, there's the possibility that your camera may have\015\012a problem that requires professional repair.

We have a Sony Cybershot DSC-W1. When we turn the camera on it fails to start properly. The lens moves a little, it beeps 18 times and then displays "Turn the power off and on again". We have tried changing the batteries, but it has made no difference. When we turn it off it moves the lens, but does not bring it fully back. Any tips appreciated.

My camera turns on by itself even with the slide in front in the closed position. The screen then shows the warning that the lens cover is closed. When I open and reclose the lens cover in 10 or so seconds the camera turns itself back on and repeats with the lens cover closed warning. The only way for me to turn the camera off at this point is to remove the battery. Help!
