    when i turn my camera on, the lens keeps going in and out and the screen is black and says "access", how do i fix this?

    When I turn on my camera, it makes a rattling sound and I get no image on the screen. In fact the screen remains white.

    When I try taking a picture, it seems to do all the proper things (i.e. shoots, flash comes out, etc.). But since I don't get an image on the screen, I cannot tell whether I took a picture or not.

    As far as trying to repair my camera, I have not done anything since I just discovered this problem and don't know how to proceed it to solve it. Please help!!

    Thank you,

    I have the same problem when I turn the camera on. The lens does not telescope and the screen shows the 'access' message. After a short duration the camera instructs the user to turn it off and back on. This has not solved the proble.

    I own a Sony Cyber-shot DSC-L1 and when i turn it on in still picture taking mode it tells me the same thing...turn the camera off and on again. I've done this many times and the problem persists.

    Hi. I have the same problem. It shows Access, then turn off camera and then on again. I did try banging on the bottom, but that hasn't worked. Any more suggestions?

Your camera has problem in Lens mechanism. If Lens doesn't open properly, camera will not show picture at all. There would be Loading Motor section demaged in Lens mechanism and it needs to be replaced to work camera OK.
Now come to blue screen in playback mode, This model doesn't have internal memory, so you need memory stick/ card to see previously taken pictures.
