Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W70 Digital Camera
I turn the camera on, the lens comes out, like it is going to turn on. Then it goes back in and out again. I then get a message on the screen to "Turn the power off and back on again". When I do this, it just keeps doing the same thing and I keep getting the same message. The camera is not, I guess, BOOTING Up. What do I need to do?
Actually I just fixed mine!!! Try hitting the bottom of the camera on a table. Amazingly my camera works now!!!!

Ok you need to look at the camera lens , turn on camera and when the lens sticks out take out the battery now look at it , if there is a place that looks uneven just gently tapp the lens in the opposite direction of the uneven lens or in the opposite direction to make it straight

What you are seeing is a generic message that means there is some sort of problem with the lens, it could happen in many different ways such as sand or dirt in the lens gears.
A couple solutions would be to either buy a defective camera online and make one good camera from the two if you can do that sort of thing yourself, or secondly have it repaired by somebody.
Don't bother trying to send the camera to Sony if it is out or warranty (though you can call them and verify what I'm about to say) because they will want $150+ to do the repair for you. Parts are not cheap to buy from them.
I know of one very affordable digital camera repair business... because I own it. The name is Darntoothysam, feel free to check us out, we are on that big auction website also (I don't plug their name for free), our seller ID is 'darntoothysam'. If you Google "darntoothysam" you will find us.
We have your repair listed as a package in our store for about $70. This covers a new lens, and return shipping of your camera! We even give a 45 day warranty on parts and labor. If you think you can use us then please check us out, even if you need to ask more questions then please feel free to contact me.
Hope this helps,
