Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W90 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Keeps asking me to turn off and back on...

I just bought this camera a few weeks ago. Within the first 200 pictures that I took it started giving me this error when I turn it on that says "Turn off camera and turn back on to use." Sometimes I have to do it 4 or 5 times before it will work again. Has anyone else had this problem? Is the camera just defective?

Since your camera is still under warranty, best thing will be calling Sony's appropriate service center for their assistance. Good luck!

Sounds like you have a defective camera. You might want to take the camera back to the place you got it and get a replacement. You can try removing and reseating the batteries to fix the problem.

Kodak M340 lens extends then retracts immediately

I had the same problem after a day at the beach. What I did was get a can of compressed air (from the computer section) and blow air around the lens as I repeatedly turned it on. It took about five cycles, but I eventually cleared whatever was preventing the lens from fully opening.

Good luck.
