Hi,
Error message "access then turn power off-on again" comes in DSC-W50 when lens mechanism failed to provide Initialize signal to system control IC.
When camera powers up, lens extended and there is photo coupler that sends pulse to system control IC that confirms that lens is fully extended so system IC opens IRIS control to get an image on CCD Imager to produce image signal for further process until you get an image on camera LCD.

Camera will be apart to do get it repaired. Let me know if you are ready to open it and have percioon screws drivers set, tweezers etc. I can assist you to fix it and least is to replace lens assembly that seems costly part.

Have Access problem for DSC W55 and requests that I turn power on/off but still doesn't work.


I had the same problem with my camera. After doing some research I learned that the focus/lens may be stuck. So I opened up my camera, wiggled the lens a little, put the camera back together and it worked again. Good luck!

I had the same problem with my DSC-W55. I actually just called the customer service number on the sony website and they told me how to solve the problem.

- Take your battery out
- Press and hold the power button for 60 seconds
- Re enter your battery
- Voila.. it should work when you turn it on. Mine did.
