Sony Cyber-Shot (DSC-W50) Access Problem

Went on a Grand Canyon Trip. on first day of the trip, camera working without any problems. On the 2nd day, I receive "access" error while the continually tries to open and close. This repeats until I get a message: to power off and restart again. I tried that many times with no success. I change my battery with no success. I changed my memory stick also without any success. I am really upset because I paid a lot of money to go to Grand Canyon for 5 days, and I only have pictures for 1.5 days of a 5 day trip. My daughter had same problem with her Cyber-shot several years ago too, but her camera was unfixable. Is there any way to diagnose this problem. I dont want to spend about $75 to have a Sony authorized dealer tell me that the camera is not fixable (of course the camera fell out of warrnaty about 5 or 6 months ago). Any advise would be very much appreciated. Thanks

    Hi ...... I am unable to get beyond the access error. No other functions work (eg. Menu to get to reset operation). I eventually get a message to power off and on again. THis cycle continues without an end.

    Any suggestions? Thanks

I had the same problem with my Sony DSC W55 camera and pulled the front lense cover smothly and its start closing the lense normally.

I did this when the camera was switched on mode.

Sounds like the CCD imager is malfunctioning. Try taking the lens out and cleaning the connectors, then reinstalling the lens. Otherwise, a replacement CCD will be needed or a new main board.

ACCESS message


One guy with the same problem fixed it by running over it with his SVU and posting the video on Youtube. It's smashed but "access" has disappeared from the screen.

Hi!
It's a flash error. Could be flash fuse or flash board. If you have a multimeter and you're ready to open it, contact me at toms.safranovs@gmail.com or contact your local Sony service center.

Lens stuck


Knocking the camera sounds like it works but may create another problem. I have had this problem with p-100 , p-200 and now the w50, I have found a small drop, of wd40 placed on both sides ,two opposing sides,of the lens ring where it extends from the body will work also. Don't spray, its a bit too hard to control amount deposited. Use a toothpick or a stick to dip and then drop the oil.

Sony cyber-shot DSC-W35


you might just want to buy a memory stick adaptor for your memory stick and insert it in the pc memory stick duo slot.. its alot faster to transfer pictures like that anyway.. I wouldnt worry about connecting the camera to the pc, all it does it is consume battery power and transferring pictures takes a litttle bit longer.  But if you do connect with usb, make sure its hooked on properly and you have plenty of battery power.
