A great camera. Went to use it, and when turned on, it reads: "Turn the Power Off and On Again". I have done it many times, changed the battery (which is fully charged), and no results. The lens comes out, and I can download pictures, but cannot take any pictures. Please advise. Craig Burton
I can hear a whirring sound - it's trying to retract or advance the lens, but is unable. A nudge or wiggle doesn't seem to affect the motor either. :( Maybe I'll try the tapping table method...ack... Camera is only a couple years old and has already gone to fix-it Sony-land to get a broken button. I don't want to send it back again!!!

if the initialize and calibration settings cannot be accessed if the touch screen is not responding, try to power reset the camera: turn cam off, remove the battery, make sure the cam is not connected to an optional ac adaptor, set mode switch to play, press and hold down the power button for a minute, let go and turn cam mode back to off, reinsert battery and turn cam on. if touch screen is still not working, unit may require service. hope this helps. thanks:)
Before anything else.... you must examine first if your card is not damage, How? Try to test it in the memory card readers or other camera that fit the same memory cards. Some other cards do have lock option in the jacket of the card. Try to unlock it. After doing so reformat the memory card in to your cam.
Other option...... Some other cam do have internal memory, if you have the same, configured it out.
I fixed this issue with my Sony Cybershot by gently (carefully) hitting the camera 3 times against a carpeted bench with the lens retracted and the camera turned off. It seems the lens gears were stuck. Now the camera works fine again.
no non of sony cameras come with any life pan
ya they are telling something baout life cycle
but i have cybershot with 29000 pic and my friend is having about 20000 so if your cameras is in warrenty period then go to sony service station they will fix it
or if you r out of warranty period then go for repairing your camera probebly changing CCD of your camera will fix this problem
DSC N2 :The switch off switch on and "Accessing" message with the beeping was so annoying. As the lens came out, I held it in place and turned the camera off, I could feel the motoor pulling (three times ) and gently resisted the retraction. the camera turned off with the lens out. When I turned it on the problem was resolved (hopefully permanently). €z
