Re: E-91-01 error

Check out the Sony support site.
This is I think a known fault and if it is- the camera will be replaced if it is not a repair price may be quoted.
This price may not be very cheap in which case it would be economic to simply discard the camera and start over

Error message that says turn power off and on again. I do that and the same error message keeps appearing.

Power reset messages are almost always a result of a lens error. Unfortunately, many cameras that fall prey to lens error problems can only be corrected by professional repair. But, here are some last resort troubleshooting steps that you can try that may correct it. They only seem to work for less than 40% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty (or repair cost approaches that of the camera), they're worth that try.

Hey kimmc279,
According to the manufacturer the file error message should mean the camera experienced an error while trying to read the file. One thing you could try is formatting your memory stick in camera, and of course upload any images you have on it to your computer first. If that didn't work I would try initializing the camera back to factory settings, which can be done in the setup menu. I hope this helps!

Go Ahead. Use Us.

Error message

my camera did the same thing, lens retracts 3 or 4 times, and then proceeded with an error message "turn off and on again". I pressed the power button probably about 10 times, didn't work, so then i gave it a good smack on the top of the frame a few times while repeatedly pressing the power button and it did the trick. Hasn't gave me problems since...hope it helps
