This happens when there is a serous error in the camera. Shutting it down and switching it on, it allows the camera to start its program again.
If it does not help, try to remove the battery and after a minute or so replace it. Sometimes recharging of the battery will help too, but I can't promise that.

SOURCE: the camera says please turn

Hi,
I too have the sam problem but was able to solve it. I called the 1-800-number and was told that this is a very common issue or this camera. They told me to tap the lens when it was extended on a cloth or towel so not to damage it. The point was that there is often a piece of dirt or sand preventing the lens from retracting properly. Guess what, a single grain of sand came out when I tapped the lens and the camera worked perfectly ever since. I looked in the camera case since I keep the camera in it all the time and there were a few grains of sand that had somehow gotten into the lens!

I hope this can help someone else out.

Thanks.

SOURCE: Dropped the camera, shutter won't closed, focus keep moving in and out, message "please turn off camera and turn on again"

This recently happened to me and I too got a hefty quote from the company since mine was no longer under warranty. I figured since it was trash anyways, I might as well take it apart and see if I could figure out what was broken. After removing all of the screws and removing the top pin strip from the board (there is a piece of tape on it) and flipping the lens part away from the board, I was able to remove the small gear compartment on the side of the lens housing (held on by one small screw) and the 3 screws on the back of the lens and carefully flip out the digital camera part and push the lens back into it's original closed position. I then carefully reinserted the digital part back into the lens making sure everything was nice and flush and closed it back up. Works like new :D However, if you're nervous about digital machines, I wouldn't reccomend doing this. Luckily for me when my camera fell it simply knocked the digital lens out from the housing and it didn't pop back in right afterwards, causing the lens to not be able to turn completely like it should. If yours is damaged more than this, it may not be such an easy fix. And the camera is difficult to handle as it is connected by those pin strips everywhere. It made me nervous to handle it as I probably could have made it worse, but, I had nothing to lose. Hope this helps out the next person.

Please help me. my camera is showing error occurred please turn unit off then turn on again


If your camera is a Canon camera 'Google' 'Canon camera error codes' and select the one you are seeing to check if there is a remedy for the problem. You can also try this action - Switch on your camera while the camera is still switched on remove the battery - leave it out for about 2 mins, put the battery back in (still with the camera in the on mode) close the battery door- switch the camera off leave for about 30 secs then switch it on again. Hopefully that may clear things. Still go on line and check the Canon error codes.

Lumix closes when turned on from drop


The message please turn camera off and then on again appears when the camera is not operating properly. So the manual says.
If the message persists you should contact the dealer or nearest service centre. But first you could check if you can see any damage. Check if the lens is not stuck. Remove the battery for a little while before you again try to switch on. Also check if the memory card is still in place and the battery door and memory card door are closed correctly.
If nothing helps you could contact the service centre or think of buying as new camera?

My Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-W55 camera does not turn on properly. When I press the gallery button, everything runs smoothly. When I press the on button, the lens opens and closes several times, making a little...


Hi. I had exactly the same problem with my Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-W7. The problem started after while lense was fully open, the battery became 100% empty. I did not have access to new batteries and did not have my charger with me so I put the camera on my car seat and went home. After charging the batteries, I turned the camera Off and the lense retracted 100%. Later on I tried to transfer some pictures to my PC. After connecting the camera to my PC with the dial in the P position and lense fully open I turned the dial to play in order to transfer photos. After transferring the pictures, I turned the camera off and disconnected from the computer.

I turn the camera on to take new pictures next day, The lense would go up, and and turn with lense fully open. It would never close. The screen was black with a message "Turn the camera on and off again". I tried 30 times or more and the same thing would happen again.

Here is what I did to fix my camera and it has been working normally since then.

1- I cleaned around the outside of the lense with lent free cloth

2- I used dust OFF to get raid of the remaining small dust particles from around the lense.

3- While turning the camera off, I pushed (down, up and turn) the lense in (NOT TOO Hard) by my hand. If you push the lense too hard, you may damage the mechanicall moving parts of the lense.

4- After a few tries, the lense retracted 90% +. I then pushed the lense a little harder all the way in, the way it normall retracts. The lense cover also closed 100%.

5- I turned the Camera on and off a few times. It was opening and closing exactly the way it used to. My Cybershot has been working okay since then.

I read a lot and here is what cause my lense to malfunction.

While lense was fully open and battery died, some small particles got on the lense and prevented lense from fully opening or closing.

In summery: two things could have caused your camera lense to malfunction.

1- if you had dropped your camera hard, some mechanical parts may have got damaged or dislocated. In this case you have to open the lense and replace the damaged part, clean and put it back on the camera. This is too risky for most ordinary people. You would most likely make it WORST.

2- If you did not drop it, most likly, some how some small dust particles got on the outside of the lense and they prevent the lense or the lense cover from fully opening and closing. If this is your case, please follow exactly what I did and your camera would be back to normal.

GOOD LUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

When i turn on my camera it says Turn the power off and on again


Hey, my camera the dsc- w80 did the same thing. When I turned it on, the lens opened 3-4 times and then it said "turn the power off and on again".
When the lens opened an closed, I pulled on it with my fingers and twisted it. I kept doing that: Turned the camera on and off, kept pulling and twisting the lens and now my camera works again!
