Receive "access" error when I turn on my camera. The lens continually tries to open and close. This repeats until I get a message: to power off and restart again. I tried that many times with no success. I change my battery with no success. I changed my memory stick also without any success.
I have tried to do a reset, however I cannot get access to any function keys to begin the reset function

Try repeatly turning on and off the unit by removing the battery each time the lens error screen pops up...that worked for me this summer when mine S210 got jammed with a sand particle. The next level is to get access to the front cover. That requires more knowledgethan I'm currently aware of as I've only removed the back cover and the LCD retainer plate. Tomorrow I'm going after the front cover and I'll let you know if I'm successful. The entire camera seems to be accessible with a small phillips head screwdriver and a lot of patience. Taking apart an S210 requires great peace of mind...don't go in until you're in a good space...
Most all cameras have a "FORMAT" mode that is accessable through your MENU options. Find It and try RE FORMATING YOUR CAMERA. You may lose stored images but it will reset the Camera back to Factory settings.
abrakati,i have the same problem,still unsolved.however,to access the menu i depressed the button to view 'shots' taken.while in that mode i was able to access the menu but resetting did ****.i still get the same malfunction.chris.
The "Access" will stay there until your camera passes it's self lens test. The test runs 3 times, then gives up with an error message. The cause of this problem is most likely a grain of sand somewhere in the lens. Only a camera tech could possibly ever hope to find it. Replace the camera lens.
While turning in off softely press the lense in and out a couple of times. The lense would retract. If not fully, but most of the way, push the lense a little harder in until completely retract. If you turn it on, I should work fine. The reason the lense does not retract is most likely some dust in there somewhere. If it did not help, you would have to open the lense and clean it and close the lense.
well well well a simple way to fix it if u r scraed to whack thn tap the lens,menu part ,sides wid a pensil or a pen...bit little harder atlest d cam should get little vibrations well it really works...belive even i had d same problem just after 15days just d previos day to a holiday...thn i just tapped itwid ma fingure n u wont belive it worked...
Same problem guys!!! LENS HAD GOT STUCK - ABOUT ONE THIRD OUT after a knock. After lots of playing, and tapping and batteries in and out tried the whole twisting and pulling thing whilst turning off and on.
After a few minutes it came free and whole lens popped out. I then had to twist the outer part of the lens to straighten that up and allow it to fully retract. Works a treat now!
PS Tried the Sony online chat support - useless!!!!
It's a problem with the lens. Usually, the internal focus lens jams up, or is out of alignment. It has to be opened up to be fixed, and the lens might have to be replaced.
Occasionally, you can give the camera a good whack in your hand while it's powering up. Just be very careful not to hit the lens, or the LCD; as they can be permanantly damaged. Hit it with your palm on the corner, or edge. Also be sure the camera doesn't fly out of your hand...then it, or something will break, obviously.
