Error message when turning on that stays on

When switching on the camera it takes a couple of seconds. I then get a error message E:61:20 flashing on the screen. This does not affect any pictures or usage of the camera, but why?

    Sony Cybershot 6.0. Same problem. Camera buzzes for about 10 secs while screen says 'access'. Then a flashing message appears 'E 61:20' and won't go away, though the camera's performance seems to be unaffected.

    When I switch on the camera I get a strange ticking noise and the error message E:61:20 flashing. It looks as if is not affecting the picture. What can I do to fix it?

Power won't turn on first it only stayed on for a couple of seconds now it won't turn on...i've already changed the batteries

The issue is with the flash capacitor inside witch controls the camera as welll as proveds eletricity to the flash bulb, you would need to have a camera shop take a look at that because of the voltage inside can cause injury.

Hope this does help

Handycam suddenly won't turn off. When I remove the battery it turns off ,of course, but when I reinstall the battery it starts up even though it is on off. If I try to record it won't and a C:13:01 shows...

I think it is Sony handycam but not sure what model it is.
Please provide model number to find out helpful info for you.
Model number would be written on sticker pasted at bottom of camcorder.

My flash doesn't work? how do i turn it on?

Have you tried resetting your camera? Powerdown and take batteries out. Then hold "power" button for 30 seconds, release and repeat couple of times.

Please reoperate after pressing reset button

When you switch it on the red led will light up but within 10 seconds it will flash and then a message on the screen will come on to tell you to reset then tell you "in service".
This will repeat itself forever to frustrate you no end but I have stumbled onto tricking it into working, ie get the led on without progressing to flash. Try switching it on and as soon the led comes on, switch it off, do this a few times, then leave the switch on and voila it might stay on like it did for me.
Just now I have ran it for an hour, switch it off then after 30 seconds turn it back on and it stays on.
I thick the reset button is all bull. Let me know how it all went or am I all bull for your NV-DS38.

Flash Error

The error 5 can mean that there is something blocking the flash from popping up. If it is up but still get the message then you need to check to see if the little black pin/stick that lets the camera know that the flash is up, is not stuck. With the flash up and pointed at you ( like you are going to take a picture of yourself) the pin is located on the right side close to the where the flash attaches to the camera. Yo should see a little pin sticking up. make sure that area is free of dust and /or debris. if it is not up then that is the problem. try to free it with out braking it or get it professionally repaired.
