First try sqeezing the camera very hard, if that doesn't work slam it as hard as you can in your hand. This usually solves the problem.

I dont think slamming any camera really hard will do much but screw it up more. When I had this problem with my DSC-P41, I took the batteries out, charged them a bit, then put them back in.
I WISH I kept my DSC-P41 because it was my favorite camera.
I contacted Sony about the issue when it happened because it was about 1 year after I got it for X-mas in 04, and I would've had to have sent it to Sony's repair...but now I've heard Sony charges more $$ to fix it than the actual product is worth now, so I didnt get around to doing it.
~I ended up taking the camera apart and cleaning the dust out of the inside of the camera with a clean dry Q-tip...and it was reaaally dusty, so maybe that might help.
Then eventually, & regretfully I sold it on ebay and got another camera...A Sony Cybershot h7, also a very good working camera.
If you ever want to sell it lemme know;)

I have a p41 and on the screen appear "turn the power off and on again" so i turn it off and back on again but the sign is still there. i turn it off and on again and again but it is still there....


Hi,

Error: TURN THE POWER OFF AND ON AGAIN is displayed on the LCD screen when the Lens Mechanism is stuck or when affected by any malfunction. If turning the power on and off again does not resolve the error message, try doing a power reset and Initialize option.
Performing a manual power reset
Turn off the camera.
Remove the battery pack.
Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds.
Allow the camera to remain without power for 60 seconds.
Reinsert the battery pack.
Turn on the camera.
To reset the Camera back to factory default, select the INITIALIZE Option from the Setup 1 Menu of the Camera to OK. This will set the user defined settings back to factory default. The images and videos will not get deleted.
If the issue persists, service may be required.
Thanks for contacting FixYa.

I have a Sony DSC-W50 Cybershot camera that won't take pictures or videos anymore. It powers up fine and the screen works, but when I hold down the shutter button all the way, it focuses and nothing more.

Hi there,

That't is normal, try lowering the your camera resolution and it would lower down the size. I just hope your are not yet on the lowest resolution.

Hopefully it’s just a memory stick that has gone bad, do you have another memory stick to try? If it continues to format errors the stick “reader” inside the camera has been damaged.

I need your help


Lens problem : either a gear box is gone or the lens unit is not properly switching on and hence the camera side is not coming on line and goes into error. If it is the gear box then it is not so expensive to fix ,but replacing the whole lens assembly will not be economical on this entry level model.
