Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W70 Digital Camera
When the camera is turned on 'access' appears on the screen. shortly after 'turn off and on again' appears and the camera beeps. However, when we do this the same keeps happening.
Hi, I just fixed my daughters camera w/same problem.....I read on another site that you squarely hit it on table while holding in hand....I didn't have to slam it just one slightly firm hit and it works fine now...been broken for weeks and tried resetting and pulling battery to no avail...the hit works! viewing screen side is the side I hit on table, only had to do once, and not that hard.(camera was less than 2yr old dsc-70) good luck!

I've just tried what skvolvo says above (I found it a bit dodgy, i admit) bit it worked just fine. I didn't hit it strongly, only once and it started working again straight away. cheers.

Had the same problem with my DSC-W55 today with "access", buzzing, lens going in and out, then "shut off anD restart" which didn't work. Tonight I tried #2, and it worked. Had to hit it three times. Well, I'll be!!

SOURCE: error message
my camera did the same thing, lens retracts 3 or 4 times, and then proceeded with an error message "turn off and on again". I pressed the power button probably about 10 times, didn't work, so then i gave it a good smack on the top of the frame a few times while repeatedly pressing the power button and it did the trick. Hasn't gave me problems since...hope it helps

Tips for a great answer:
Error: TURN THE POWER OFF AND ON AGAIN is displayed on the LCD screen when the Lens Mechanism is stuck or when affected by any malfunction. If turning the power on and off again does not resolve the error message, try doing a power reset and Initialize option.
Performing a manual power reset
Turn off the camera.
Remove the battery pack.
Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds.
Allow the camera to remain without power for 60 seconds.
Reinsert the battery pack.
Turn on the camera.
To reset the Camera back to factory default, select the INITIALIZE Option from the SET UP1 Menu of the Camera to OK.This will set the user defined settings back to factory default. The images and videos will not get deleted.
If the issue persists, service may be required.
Thanks for contacting FixYa.
