    I have the same issue, every time I turn my camera on I have this problem. In the user manual it says to take the battery out for one minute and put it back in and turn on. This may help for someone else's camera, but it sure didn't do anything for me.

    Mine does the same thing. I contacted Sony and went thru a brief troubleshooting session with some Indian dude and it resulted in him telling me to send it in for $91.00 for repair. If anyone else knows how to fix this, please let us all know!

Hi Guys

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news :(

Both your camera`s lenses are faulty.

The lens unit is only available as a complete unit from Sony. Your best bet would be to contact the retailer where you bought it and ask him for the details for your nearest Sony Service centre. It needs to be a Authorised service centre as there are software and settings that must be done after a lens replacement.

In my experience repair cost will be between 40 and 60 % of the price you paid for the camera.

Sorry there really is not anything you can do yourselves to fix these problems.

Good luck

DSC-W150 SteadyShot says turn power on & off & lens pops in/out


I had the same problem with my Sony DSC-W150 camera. It turned out to have an easy fix. At the same time, press the power button and depress the shutter button halfway (the one you snap to take pics) as if you were trying to engage the autofocus without pressing the button down entirely. The lens will attempt to autofucus, which in my case was enough extra power to dislodge whatever debris/sand had clogged the lens. Hope this works for you!

My vivicam 5022 turns then beebs twice and like falls asleep


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. 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.

If this response helped, please post a rating for me. A rating of "Very Helpful" would be appreciated . . .

I read that if you bang the camera against your hand a couple of times it can fix it. I tried it and it fixed it until i turned the camera off and on again. Tell me how it works for you.

LENS ERROR. Contact repairs and tell them you have a lens error. Lie and tell them u already talked to tech support otherwise they will try and transfer you to them and they will just make you call repairs again. Repairs is 800-706-2534 and then keep choosing option 1.
