Wont go into camera mode.

Re: Wont go into camera mode.

Hello, the problem can be in sensors (micro switches) for dust cover in front of the lens unit or the lens unit is stuck. Please contact your nearest Authorized Sony Service or the technician with the best references for this kind of job. Best regards, Arpi

Put camera on screen come on lens came out thwn power went off now power light wont stay on long enough lens wont go back in

maybe this works: turn your camera on in play mode (if you have play button press it to turn on camera) and if your camera hase a shoot-play switch select play mode and then turn your camera on.) repeat this until lens goes back. I hope this works...

hi try turning on and taking hold of the end of the lense and gently pulling and twisting you may hear a click but dont force it. then turn off and on again. then you may want to try

Press Menu button
togle across from REC Mode to setup
togle down thrice from camera to setup 1
togle across into sub menu
togle down from four times to Initialize
togle across again to the sub-menu
togle up from cancel to OK
press center button to accept the OK choice
Screen changes and so press okay again
It should restart the camera
Opening on the 'Clock Set' screen
togle down to cancel and use the camera and make sure that you have the camera to flash, if it works try again in the Auto function.
If it is still not working do not worry follow the steps again two or three more times, As this is generally a software error message and not a hardware malfunction.
If it is working then don't forget to set your Clock.

Camera Wont turn On: Is it stuck in USB mode? How do i fix it?

I was able to get past this problem by removing and reinserting the battery. This caused, in effect, a hard reset of the camera, which let me power it up fresh and take pictures again. Of course, it's not exactly reassuring that the problem arose in the first place,
