Dropped camera and now the lens is stuck out,when i turn it on the screen says turn power on and off again.i do that,but it keeps saying it still and camera makes a weird noise when i turn it on,and lens...


Bummer huh? I dropped mine a while back and damaged my battery cover!

I would try...taking out the batteries and reinstalling them! This may reset your camera?

Otherwise, I would do a web search and type in:

Hope this helps you get your camera working again!

Kind Regards!

Sony cyber-shot DSC-W50 digital camera when cutting on the on button on the camera it says turn the power off and on again.

You can try the following 2 ways: 1. Format and restore the initial value of the camera. 2.First open the battery box cover (notice: do not pull out the battery now), then start the camera, pull out the battery just after the Len has turn out. Install the battery a few seconds later. Now start your camera with the Play button which is next to the viewfinder boot, and then moving the hand wheel to switch to camera mode, after Image appearing the screen, the camera will work properly.

Access turn the power off and on again

I'm sorry that the camera is not working fine. Please check if the battery is fully charged and check if there are no dust particles near the lens. Else, please try to power reset the camera by removing the battery and pressing the power button for a minute. Then, reinsert the battery. If the issue persists, the camera requires service.

When i turn my sony dsc w30 says turn power of then on..

Please make sure that the battery is fully charged and there are no dust particles near the lens which stops retracting. Check if you are able to access the Menu. If yes, then, please Initialize the camera under Main settings 1 Menu. If you are not able to access the menu, you may have to power reset the camera by removing the battery and press n hold the power button for 1 minute continuously. After that leave the button and insert the battery and check if it helps. If the issue still persists, your camera will require service.

Sony Cybershot DSC-W150-turn power on, lens zooms in/out; screen reads "turn the power off and on again" but camera won't work. Battery is fully charged

It's probably stuck focus. Contact your local Sony service center, but if they ask too much, you can contact me at and I will give you a good price.

Battery Problem

If you have used this camera more than three months Try changing the battery. Before using fully charge the battery. Let the battery consumed in your camera fully then you charge again. Otherwise the battery life will reduce. Try this option before trying any other option.
