Check the on / off switch, if it is locked in one position. Could be a defective spring, or a bent or dent.
Looks a strange error to me.

Sony cybershot dsc-w120 lens goes crazy whenever I turn it on and tells me to turn it off.


The camera should go off automatically when faulty. attempt to explore teh functions on the camera is discover the unique experience beyond power shut down requests. When powered on, capture a snap shot immediately or else the camera takes charge to poweroff to save batteries. Also, attempt to power charge since the insufficeient battery does not allow the camera to stay on long.

Turns on then shuts down automatically


As long as the battery is fine - try taking out the memory card and turning it on maybe? Sorry, but the lens are probably broken. Does it give an error message?

My sony cybershot wont turn on!!


The symptoms sound like a failing battery. The camera is shutting down due to insufficient power during startup checks. How old is your battery? Rechargeables really aren't meant to last more than a year or two.

Now I realize that Sony batteries are outrageously expensive. But thankfully there are generic alternatives such as:

Hey Gregorious03,
You could try removing the batteries for at least one minute and then reinserting them, or you could try initializing the camera back to the factory settings under the setup menu. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan

Handycam shuts off on it's own...


do you have HDD Smart Protection on?
The hard disk will automatically shut down in this mode (which can be turned on or off) if the camcorder is dropped in order to save data from corruption or loss.

When Drop Protection is enabled, the camcorder automatically shuts off when it senses sudden, jerky movement

Loose connection between base and camera causes it to shut down automatically.
