The camera is probably is "Burst" mode where you hit the picture button and it contineously takes the picture. Hit menu and look to see if you have it set to burst mode if so take it off and it will work..I just found the answer on here :)

We had the same problem, Sony DSC W80 with the code E 62:12 flashing on the upper right side of the LCD screen. The camera was rotating the photos by 90-degrees. After reading that E 62 was related to the steady shot function, I figured it may be a stuck potentiometer in the camera (it has little sensors that tell the camera what it's orientation is, I guessed one of them was stuck from a "light" fall earlier in the day, while the camera was in the case). I firmly banged the camera in the palm of my hand 3 times on 2 sides... The problem's gone and the pictures are no longer rotating.

Well I can't tell you what E:62:11 means and why it disappears when memory is taken out, however I experienced this
same problem with my DSC t-100 but mine did not go away no matter what i did, I looked around online for some
solutions I found this one site
basically what many people said was the error was probably due to focusing problems if you may have dropped the camera before. On the site they recommended to hit the camera lightly on the side where the battery is located, while the camera is booting up. I did this, and to my surprise IT ACTUALLY WORKED! I couldn't believe it but the error message is gone, and I haven't seen it since. Hope this helps.

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.
Hope the advise is useful. Please let me know if you need any further assistance.
