Most likley the bezel around the front of the lens has been dented, this will be jamming the window shutters closed, the only fix is probably to lever the bezel and shutter off. camera will still go

SOURCE: When I turn my camera on it says "Access" then a message comes up

This is a firmware problem that is common with many many digital cameras. It will have to be upgraded. The company will do this for $50
Otherwise you may be able to find a kit online and do it which would be hard to located

Hi!
It's probably stuck focus. Contact your local Sony service center, but if they ask too much, you can contact me at toms.safranovs@gmail.com and I will give you a good price.
I work in Sony service center.

A recycling lens is usually caused by either a low or worn out battery (how old is your battery? If more than a couple years, it would be definitely time for a new one. Here's a selection.). If a new battery doesn't help (but it really does sound like you need a new battery), the next problem that could cause this is a lens error. Unfortunately, many cameras that fall prey to lens error problems can only be corrected by professional repair. But, here are some last resort troubleshooting steps that you can try that may correct it. They only seem to work for less than 40% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty (or repair cost approaches that of the camera), they're worth that try.

Camera indicates low battery even for fully charged battery.


I have connected my PowerShot A2000IS that was doing the same thing for me and I discovered the following:
1) The unit works fine even down to 2.5V providing the supply source (i.e. batteries can deliver 500 mA for a short burst during startup, i.e. when the camera's lens is extended). The camera draws 300mA with screen on after the initial startup current has settled. This means that the camera may not work with batteries like normal alkaline as these don't normally supply large currents, like NI-MH and NI-Cd can.
2) I found that if I lowered the voltage down to (using my bench power supply) that the low power indicator come on at just under 2.5 Vs, BUT once it has indicated low battery, turning the voltage back up to 3V didn't remove the low battery indication.
3) Finally I connected my fully charged (with combined voltage of 2.7V) Ni-Mh rechargeables (old and well used) using wires to allow me to measure their voltage and I found that when I turned on the camera the voltage dipped to 2.3V, but come up after the lens was deployed.

Conclusion and recommendations:
a) Get some new high quality Ni-Mh cells.
b) Don't use Alkaline cells (even Duracell brand might not handle it).
c) Forget Ni-Cd as terminal voltage would be at best 2.6V which doesn

Opens lens then switch's off, /fully charged


It could be the battery contacts or the battery itself that is faulty: 1. Clean the battery contacts. a. Remove the battery/batteries and the memory card from your camera, then wipe the battery contacts with a soft, clean cloth. b. Reinstall the battery/batteries into your camera. Please make sure that you are installing a fresh/ fully charged battery c. Turn the camera on. 2. Without the memory card, turn your camera on. (If it works then it?s your memory card that is faulty) 3. Please test with the a different battery If you do not have access to another battery Try these steps instead: Please take the battery out of the camera. b. Insert the charger into the unit from the main socket and turn the camera on. If the camera works you will need to replace the battery. If you camera doesn?t switch on you will need to order a no power repair with KODAK or a new cable.
