Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W70 Digital Camera

Won't Turn On..

I've charged the battery, and have a brand new memory card in it. But it won't turn on. I can tell that the lense won't move.. it like, isn't shut, and i could feel the whole system trying to push out the camera. My brother (who dropped it and broke it) said the ZOOM was broken, but I think he just broke the thing that opened/ moves out.. any way to fix this without sending it into the shop? and if i have to send it in, what's broken? PLEASE AND THANK YOU!

    Are you sure that will work?

    When I turn it in ON mode, the camera shuttle trys to move, but wont.
    And the camera peices that close the lense up are open when the camera is off.
    And when I turn it ON, it says 'Access', then beeps at me and says 'Turn power on and off'

Look for a tiny pinhole and insert a pin while powered up to reset the device

    if this does not work, if you get to the point to open it see any electric motor, then apply a battery powered set of jumper wires to the motor to manually run the zoom back and forth. start with one battery (1.5 volts) only!

    the dropped camera may be beyond repair...at reasonable cost..if you cannot find the pinhole to reset...almost sounds like the micro is confused, but possible mech damage...may be toast

Hello, Hard to tell with info given, Try new battery to determine if it is battery related or a camera failure, Batteries are cheaper than camera repairs.

Canon powershot SD1300 IS won't turn on, even with fully charged battery


Things to check first for a camera that won't turn on are battery contact points, and micro switches that are located on the battery and memory card doors. Troubleshooting tips on other things that need to be checked may be seen here. These tips won't work for every case, but they're worth a try.

Panasonic DMC-TZ3: one day it's working fine, next it won't power on. Tried the "Power Saver" reset technique posted ... didn't work. Battery is fully-charged.


Hello
Try removing the battery and the memory card for 1 minute then return them back. Make sure the battery is inserted properly. If that didn't work, try turning it on without the memory card.


Did you get any error message when you try to turn on your camera?

Kodak z812 is problem


I had the same issue with my same brand/model camera for months. I used it maybe twice and then it decided not to turn on, no matter what I did. I finally got in touch with Kodak (the first time they told me to try different batteries, which of course did not help). I spoke with someone who figured out that I had a faulty memory card. When I removed my memory card, I was able to turn my camera on. I had to reset my date, but once I did that (still keeping the memory card out) I was able to take pictures just fine. Give that a try and see if it helps!

Another word of advice, if turns out to be your memory card, you'll need to purchase a new one. Kodak, of course, provides troubleshooting for their brand memory cards as well. Just an FYI.

Hope this helps!
