Off and on problem with a Sony Cybershot DSC-W35

Whenever I try to start the camera, a message showing 'Turn the power off and on again' repeatedly keeps on coming. The lens comes out and instantly retracts back in. I tried taking the battery out and in, memory stick too and even recharging the battery and repeatedly repeating the above process, but it still does not work. Please help!

    The same thing happens to mine. I can look at pics and videos but when I put it in the mode to take photos I get this message. I don't know what to do, I have turned it on and off a million times!

    I have a Sony DSC-S40 with the same problem. Kind of wierd that three people within the same week encounter the smae problem. A month ago my viewer screen was out and I found on the net that if you tap the camera with your nuckle on the words Cyber Shot it will come back. I wonder if doing that messed up something else?

You have to open the cage of the camara gently & the put the betteries, then if you are catching the cam. from the screen side, you can see on the left side the wheel of the lences, in the same moment you are turning the cam, move that wheel with a little knife or anything you have, it will work.

It turn the power on and on again and nothing happens


This is a common problem for all Sony Cybershot digital cameras. It is saying the error "Access" because whenever you turn it on, the camera finds it hard to retract and open out the lens. Chances are, there is some sand or maybe dust or dirt of These are few things you can do.

You can blow a compressed air on the camera's lens to try to take off the dirt or granule of sand stuck within the lens. Also, you can try to hold the camera from your right hand with the lens facing the ground and hit the camera's base on your left palm. Do this several times.

Let me know if this helped you. Goodluck!

Sony Cybershot DSC-W35 Camera doesn't detect the USB cable


You dont need the disc to download to computer.Take the card from the camera and put it into the card reader on your computer if one is fitted, if not you need one that goes into a USB slot When the card is inserted into the reader a box will open on the screen with several options as to view images or download them.

I would also download Picasa 3 which puts your photos in date order and also has photo editing. This is a free download and is part of google.

Sony DSC-W35 - No date imprint !


The date and time (and a lot more) are stored with every picture in its EXIF metadata. To print this, please consult the documentation for whatever program you're using to print your pictures. Depending on the program and printer you may print the date on the image, in the margins, or on the back.
