    My did the same thing but was under warrenty at the time so Sony fixed. Exactly a yr later (Oct of this yr 2009) the same thing happened since it wasn't under warrenty i just wrote it off and bought a cheapie to take pics. Last weekend after 7 months sitting in a drawer I picked it up and it worked. So i decided to take it out hiking and low and behold after taking two pictures it starts not being able to focus and the same thing happens agian. I did exactly what you said, put my camera lens side down on a hard surface with the screen facing up and tapped decently hard nine times and now it works! I took about twenty pics focusing in and out and jostled the camera about a bit and no probs! Thanks for the help!

I got an estimate to fix the camera for 129$ but thats **** i would rather buy a new camera. the funny thing is i dont need to. someone was joking and said well "how did u break it?" and i said "i dropped it" then they said " well drop it again" guess what? we lightly tapped the camera on the desk and as we were all laughing at how stupid it was to do that we turned it on and the damn thing was working!!!!!!
JUST 2 3 TAPS AND UR CAMERA WILL BE WORKIN I KNOW it sound stupid someone suggested me i thought it a joke but a tried it i gave 3 taps and it was nt workin but after 9 taps its was workin jus try it:)
plz tap it from a small distance and the camera lens face should be towards the desk
the actual problem is the lens is out of place:)

Tapping the camera, lens side down, also fixed my P10. I guess the mechanism driving the lens has been affected by dirt or wear and the thumping frees it up a bit or resets it somehow. Remains to be seen how long it lasts but hey, I'm just pleased it goes again!

    Sure enough, I tapped my camera 9 times first and it didn't work, then I tried another 2 times and it work out fine. This is good, You should be able to fix it in less than 3 minutes.

I was just about to throw my P10 in the trash when I tried one more search and came across this post. I had the camera all torn apart so I put it back together and tried the tap thing. It did not work so I grabbed the camera in my hand and hit it on the desk top calendar to provide a little padding and now my camera works. THANK YOU for taking the time to post this user fix.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-N1 Digital Camera wont come on


hi

do you have a manual for that?

if i could only remember correctly, you have to press a button to go into safe mode for that. you are experiencing an internal error that requires a reset that can only be done in your cameras safe mode.

hope this helps.

Sony DSC-N1


I had the exact same problem, from reading various different articles it sounded like the problem was lens guide pins being out of position. When the lens was extended when tuned on, I held it open and twisted slightly, a slight click was heard (the pins relocating I think) and the camera returned to normal. I hope this helps.
