    When turning the camera on, it says access then says to "turn camera off and on again." Then when it is turned off and on it does the same thing.

Occasionally, a good "whack" in your hand can fix it. Just don't hit the lens, or lcd; or you can break them. Then there will be more damage.

It may be as simple as cleaning your lens. If the lens is dirty your camera will think the lens is out of focus and keep trying to close. If you want to repair it yourself there is a guy in South Carolina who has lots of parts for all the Sony Cameras. I bought my LCD from him for $39.00 plus shipping and it works perfect. I put it in myself and saved a ton. If you buy the part from him he sends you pictures of him taking the camera apart so that you can repeat the process when you install it. I think his email is gerald.ray@aa-ark.com

There is a problem internally with the lens. Likely, the focusing lens is jammed up. The lens will need to be disassembled and fixed, if possible, or replaced. Occasionally, a good "whack" in your hand can fix it. Just don't hit the lens, or lcd; or you can break them. Then there will be more damage.

My camera keeps asking me to turn it off and back on again.


Start your camera to preview mode, not using the "on switch" Use the dial to set it to ISO selection, start it , IT should work, Now when your shutter is open see if it is dirty, If yes clean it, Now turn it off , And slightly press AROUND the lens shutter, "NOT ON THE SHUTTER", AND try if that solves the problem, I solved the same problem with my DSC-W55 like that only,

Wy wife and I shake a little when taking pictures and our shots are fuzzy most of the time. what can we do to improve our pictures with this SONY DSC-W55 camera?


you need to increase your shutter speed. your instruction manual should tell you how to do it. if you don't use flash normally try using it with your pictures. If you can adjust the ISO setting to a higher number as well. Some digitals will let you and others wont.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC- W55 takes blurry pictures


Hi!
The focus doesn't move as it should - it was stuck before you tapped it. Could be sand or something in it. I'm afraid you will have to give it away for a repair. You can contact your local Sony service center, but if they ask too much, I can offer you a very good price. My e-mail is toms.safranovs@gmail.com
I work in a Sony service center.

Hope this helps!
