Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-S40 Digital Camera

Error C:13:10, displays ''access'', ''turn the power off and on agai

Fresh Batteries, clean memory stick, power on, camera lense cover opens, camera starts making a noise, lense never extends from its base (sounds like it is trying :) ) After appx 10 secs the noise stops and an error type message displays on the screen - gives a few system beeps and flashes the message C:13:10 while displaying but not flashing "turn the power off and on again", on a black background. I do this, but it is an infinite loop. The only way I can turn it on without getting this message is when i am usb'd to the laptop. The last "known" activity was copying a file from the laptop to the camera using it like a flash drive. (dont ask me what i was thinking). None of the kids will admit to dropping it, etc, and there are no smash marks. UGH, I need helppppp. Is there anybody out there?

Lens jams can happen without dropping the camera. The lens motor is bad, or a grain of sand has got stuck in one of the lens cogs. Either way will need lens repair/replacement.

Sony DSC-P32 Memory Stick Error, "C:13:01"? When I went to review pics on memory card, camera would not scroll through and it would immediately shut off. Assuming it was the batteries, I...


Hi,

The C:13:01 error code is the self diagnosis display of the camera to identify the cause of the issue with the Camera. This error code indicates the issue with the medium used in the Camera. You can try few steps to check if the issue can be resolved.
Try using different Memory Stick in the Camera.
Make sure that the Memory Stick used is compatible with the Camera. (The maximum capacity that can be used in the Camera is of 2GB Memory Stick PRO Duo.)
Format the Memory Stick in the Camera and check if it works. (Formatting the Memory Stick will delete all the files saved in it).
This may happen if the files in the Memory Stick is damaged or corrupted.
Try turning the camera power off and on.
Remove and re-insert the Memory Stick several times.
Insert another Memory Stick in the Camera to check if the issue is with the particular Memory Stick.
Try resetting the Camera and check if it helps. To reset the Camera, press the RESET button located inside the jack cover using a sharp pointed object.

If the issue happens with different Memory Sticks after performing all the steps, service may be required.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Lense stuck out - camera powers on only briefly then stops - hear one "bing". Tried removing battery - does nothing with cable power only.


1. Clean the battery contacts. a. Remove the battery/batteries and the memory card from your camera, then wipe the battery contacts with a soft, clean cloth. b. Reinstall the battery/batteries into your camera. Please make sure that you are installing a fresh/ fully charged battery c. Turn the camera on. 2. Without the memory card, turn your camera on. (If it works then it?s your memory card that is faulty) 3. Please test with the a different battery If you do not have access to another battery Try these steps instead: Please take the battery out of the camera. b. Insert the charger into the unit from the main socket and turn the camera on. If the camera works you will need to replace the battery. If you camera doesn?t switch on you will need to order a no power repair with KODAK or a new cable.

My camer won't turn on


Does the lense extend when you power it on in "snapshot"mode?
Could be the switch is sticking. These cameras use concave cup button that mash on gold foil on the circuit board. Could be a bad switch. $$$$$ costly.
