Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-S600 Digital Camera
Hello, When the camera shows this it tries to acces the lens mechanism, in terms of extending the lens and/or powering on the ccd sensor. Failure in doing so will result in an error code or simply by having the camera not showing anything else at all. Therefore the camera has a problem with the lens assembly. It's the most common problems with digital cameras. However this can only be solved in a service center because dissasembling the camera yourself will risk lens assembly damage, as they are very delicate equipment. I suggest you go to a service center, not the larger ones working for corporations, instead a smaller generic one. Ask them a price estimation before they actually repair it. Repairs may varry from a simple lens readjustment to the replacing of the whole lens assembly, this can get expensive on sony models. Please reply if you have further questions. Good luck with the fix and sorry for not being able to assist you with a quick fix.
