Furrybutts (hehehe, like the name), This could be a lot of things and I'm sure there's a service guide out there that will tell us what 20 beeps and flashing lights mean, as I don't have one, let's figure it out.
Firstly, digi-cams and rechargables, eerrrrrgggg (Mr Burn's shudder) yeah they 'work', but for trouble shooting and iffy times, lets look at some half desent NEW alkaline batteries - for about $3-$4, it's worth it for this troubleshoot.
OK, did they work?, No?, lets look at the memory card. The cards are supporsed to be only put in one way, but ... lets take out the card, clean the contacts with a clean cloth/tissue, and put the card back in being sure it's in the right way. Still no go?
Take the card out again and try and turn the camera on without the card. Any changes?
This camera uses an XD memory card. I can't remember if it has an internal memory - what we're looking for is whether the memory is damaged and the camera is happy using it's internal memory or still erronous with no memory. Do you have access to another XD card to try it (this camera will take a MAXimum of 512mb, so don't try and card bigger).
Lets leave it at this for now and you let me know how things are going?

Camera beeps and turns off and lens won't retract


Lens error / Battery expire.
1. Use a new battery will fully charged and then use it. Hope you get good result.

2. Some time lens zooming gear getting damaged by dust. if that gear is scrached by dust then your lens can't work and it will stucked. Your camera automatically turn off.

Of those 2 85% chance of poor/ long time used Battery & 15% chance of lens zooming gear damaged.

Thanks, i am waiting for your feed back & if you satisfied then thumps me please.

Camera DSC-W% is not getting on and lens not retracting


Try turning it on while manually pulling the lens assembly ever so lightly. Also try the same thing pushing it in, if that doesn't work.
Hope that works. Ed

Exilim camera turns on and then truns right off. Won't stay on!


Ok everyone.......if your light is blinking while it's charging that means you have a battery error and need to call techincal support and they can possibly replace the battery for you if it is a certain model and within their time frame of replacement.

Usually beeping and then shutting back off means that the lens has sustained some kind of damage and it is just a matter of time before "lens error" shows up on your screen. The only way I know to fix that is to send it into repairs or an authorized service center if you are out of warranty.

Weird problem. Camedia d-520 doesn't turn on. Blinks and Beeps.


I'm having the same problem with mine. Happens on rechargeables or brand new standard batteries as well. Very frustrating. I can't take more than 2 videos in a row without the dreaded orange/green lights flashing (low battery warning). Leaving it for 10-20 minutes and it works again, with the battery charge showing full.
