there are a number of solutions you can try,

1.
  1. you will need to turn off the camera and hold the camera on the edges in a way that you wouild hold a pack of cards
  2. you will "smack", or "pack" on all sides besides the side that has the buttons. carefull to hold it steady and not too tight that you would squeeze the lens or LCD screen on the back.
  3. this will cause it to resync in.

2.
turn on the camera, wait for the message to appear, then open the battery compartment and take out the battery out while the camera was still on. put the battery back in, and turn the camera on

You have a short in your button board in your camera or a bad button board. Send into Nikon to repair. You can also look on Ebay for the part if your technical skills are up to self repair.

Turn camera off then on again?


I posted and looked around more online- I found this, did it and it worked! I just held camera with lens upright and used my left thumb and applied pressure when turning off with right thumb.

"I have dsc-w70 with lens stuck out . When you turn it on , you will see a message turn the power off . I've just fixed this morning without any tool and it took only a second . When i turn the power off with my left thumb , i used my right hand to squeeze the lens with little push it in , it will be back to the right position it should be . My camera is working great now like before . Do not affraid , hope everyone can do it . Good luck ."

Low battery maybe? Try holding camera firmly in one hand, with camera on and in record mode, and strike in on its edge firmly on the heal of your other hand. This technique is often sucessful with temporary camer 'quirks' like freezing, lens not fully retracting, etc.

Viewing is fine, taking pictures is not


This sounds like what started happening with my camera a few weeks ago. I found that turning the LCD screen off during picture-taking allows me to take pictures. I then have to go into review mode to look at the pictures I took using the LCD screen. Definitely not a great fix. I'm trying to locate a firmware upgrade that may solve it.
