SOURCE: Access problem in DSC-W50

I had the same problem described here and read that you can bang the camera as you power it on. I banged my DSC-W50 while powering up, at first lightly with increasing strength each time. It started working after the 3rd impact.

SOURCE: Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W70 "access"

Hi Guys

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news :(

Both your camera`s lenses are faulty. It is a common problem found on the DSC-W range of cameras and therefore not to expensive to repair.

The lens unit is only available as a complete unit from Sony. Your best bet would be to contact the retailer where you bought it and ask him for the details for your nearest Sony Service centre. It needs to be a Authorised service centre as there are software and settings that must be done after a lens replacement.

In my experience repair cost will be between 40 and 60 % of the price you paid for the camera.

Sorry there really is not anything you can do yourselves to fix these problems.

Good luck

SOURCE: TURN POWER OFF AND ON AGAIN.

The problem is that the lens is jammed.
Here's what I did: I smacked the side of the camera on a tile floor a few times, until the lens started trying to open. Then I used a knife to pry up the lens a little. Believe it or not, it is now taking pictures. You can't imagine how excited I was to get it working.

If this sounds like a joke (it did to me), I got the idea from these forums:

Good luck!

It put access than after it starts beeping and appears turn the power off and on again


Hi,


Error: TURN THE POWER OFF AND ON AGAIN is displayed on the LCD screen when the Lens Mechanism is stuck or when affected by any malfunction. If turning the power on and off again does not resolve the error message, try doing a power reset and Initialize option.

Performing a manual power reset

Turn off the camera.

Remove the battery pack.

Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds.

Allow the camera to remain without power for 60 seconds.

Reinsert the battery pack.

Turn on the camera.

To reset the Camera back to factory default, select the INITIALIZE Option from the SET UP1 Menu of the Camera to OK.This will set the user defined settings back to factory default. The images and videos will not get deleted.


If the issue persists, service may be required.


Thanks for contacting FixYa.

When I turn the camera on it says access , the lens goes in and out then I get a beep and message reads turn the power off and on again. I've done this over and over again and it still won't work. ...


One thing to test before going to repair, make sure you are using a fully charged and correct battery for your camera.
If so, the camera will need repair. This is a common problem and can be fixed. Teleplan Camera Repair does a great job and their blog is also very informative.

Turn on the power and the camera beeps 3 times?


hmmm... accesses the card ok? 3 beeps on a computer is a memory thing... might try a differnt SD card... Otherwise, probably is trash, cameras are so cheap that having a shop repair them is just not worth it.

Peace,

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
