Press the "MENU" button and navigate to the reset command and reset the camera. That may get the camera to function properly.

SOURCE: turn on camera,lens pops out,goes in/out focus reads lens error

If the camera has recently been dropped you may have lens damage that is preventing it from powering up. If it hasn't been dropped your problem may be due to weak/worn out batteries or corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and place them back in the camera and give them a full charge (assuming that you are using rechargeable batteries). This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, your batteries may need to be replaced or the camera may have a problem that requires professional repair.

I turned off my camera (Canon powershot G9). After 2 seconds i turned it back on the lens popped out but the camera wouldnt turn on. Now the lens is still popped out, wont go back in. I tried recharging...


hi would you tell me more about condition? does it power on, do you see back of lcd any message, if power on, then you have lens unit is defective. no power at all, then you have either power control pcd(dc/dc convoertor) or main pcb. If main fail, then you have to send canon factory. but lens unit or power pcb problem can solve in your local repair shop. They would chage you around $65 to 165 depend on what they really want to charge. Thanks and best regard!

"Access? & ?Turn the power off and on again? keep appearing


Hello

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

You can also have a look at THIS link.

Hope the advise is useful. please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance.

Regards
Andrea

My camera is saying to 'turn the power off and on again'


Lens mechanism is damaged in your camera. Does lens pops out and in your camera? If yes, try to tapp it while lens pops out.

Sony n2 camara problem


ok guys, I was getting the same "Access" black screen on my dcsn2. I would turn it on and the lens would pop in and out I would get the black screen with the "Access" on it. What worked for me was the following:

As the lens came out i grabbed and pulled while it was fully extended

The "Access" screen disappeared and my camera was back to normal.
hope this works for u guys! :-)

So frustrating. Turn off and Turn on again.


There are two possible defective parts on your camera, is the lens cover will open upon power on? if yes, then lens cover motor is OK. if not its defective. Assumming, lens cover is OK, does lens assy pop-out upon power on? If not then, lens assy is defective, replace it. Thanks
