I have a Sony DSC T7 digital camera. All of a sudden, when I switch on my camera (open cover or switch on button) I get the 'access' wording on my screen, and that's it. Nothing change if I switch to 'preview' mode or 'recording' mode. I've taken out the memory card, put it back again - nothing. Even if I connect via USB, my pc does not pick up the memory card. How can I fix this?

your camera is very simply in mechanically. It may has loosen screws go around and stuck inside. If you are careful, you can try on open and look for the piece. If you are willing to, then let me know.
Thanks and best regard!
It appears that you have already tried what I'd have suggested as a last resort. Apart from cleaning the contacts and removing the battery for 15 minutes there is not much that can be done.
In my opinion it is better to purchase new camera than to spend so much on this one. Note that sony may also charge you a checking fee if you decide to send the camera in hope for less costly repair than they estimated.
And yes, it would be fruitless to dismantle the camera if you are not qualified for this stuff. There are no user serviceable parts inside and also there are timed mechanical switches which can be difficult to reassemble without a proper schematic.
PS. Please do not use Vodka for cleaning electronic components as it contains small amount of moisture. Use Isopropyl alcohol.
It is only six screws, and you have to GENTLY wiggly the front cover off....Start at the bottom, and wiggle side to side to get it unattached at the top of the panel. I just got mine off. I'm having black screen problems....
