Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-S90 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Will not power on properly

When I turn on the power button the screen says "Access", then "Turn the power off and on again". I have full battery power. I can review previously taken pictures but can't take any new pics. I also can not get the zoom lens to retract completely.

For what its worth I had this same problem with both rechargeables and alkcalines. Fresh batteries were rejected after just a few shots and were clearly NOT dead. Solution seems to be either use Sony's NP-NH25 cybershot battery which is made of two AA batteries jointed at the hip or use generic rechargeable NiMh batteries with a capacity superior to Sony's battery (>2500mAh).

My Kindle Fire HD is frozen. It says that there is 96% battery. I don't know if I'm supposed to disconnect the battery (which I cannot access) or what. Help!


You can try holding down the power button to see if it gives a menu to turn off the device. If not, you can also try plugging in the power to see if that unfreezes the screen. If neither of those work, you can let the device run out of battery and then charge it again, as it will restart the system after losing the battery and gaining a charge again. After it runs out of battery and you have it charged again, you will need to hold the power button to turn it back on

If the touch screen of the Camcorder is not working, please follow the troubleshooting steps.

Please make sure that you're using fully charged batteries.

Turn off the Camcorder and turn ON again and check the operation.

Try resetting the Camcorder by pressing the reset button above the hand strap.

Perform a power resetting of the Camcorder. To perform power resetting, please remove the battery pack, turn the Power switch to ON for more than 15 seconds, turn the Power switch to OFF position and then reinsert the battery pack.


If the issue persists even after performing all the above-mentioned steps, service is required.

I hope this information will help you to resolve the touch screen issue of the Camcorder.

Hold the power button for 5 seconds or more - does it turn off properly? If so, can you turn it back on afterwards?

Take out the battery and unplug the power adaptor. Let it sit for a few minutes. Now try the power adaptor alone. If this works, try shutting down and running on battery again.

Sony DSC-W30 ACCESS problem


try hitting it against something harder (like a table). I just did and it worked for me.

Access and turn on again the camera


I called Sony at 800-222-7669 and was told to turn camera off, remove battery, turn camera on holding the power button for one full minute, put battery back in and power up as usual. Probably the one minute drains the residual energy in a capacitor.

I passed the info to my wife but she had solved the problem by tapping on the front to release a bind on the lens coming out. Probably caused by handling during her trip to California. So I don't know if the one-minute thing works but it is certainly worth a try.

Hope this helps you!
