Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-S980 Digital Camera

1 Answer

I have a Sony S980 digital camera. The camera powers up but a message (Switch camera off and on again) comes on the screen. I think the lens is sticking instead of coming out but unfortunately I do not know what to do next. Do you think it can be fixed? Thank you very much in advance.

My sony dsc-s980 keeps telling me to turn off and on the power. There was a problem with the barrell getting stuck but its seems to be working ok now but my camera still wont work


Hi,


Error: TURN THE POWER OFF AND ON AGAIN is displayed on the LCD screen of the DSCS980 Camera when the Lens Mechanism is stuck or 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 Main Settings 1 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.


Good Luck

HI there,

The unit could have a mechanical problem and causing the lens not retract. I suggest that you try to tap the camera at bottom lower back while pressing the power button.

If the above solution does not fix or solve the issue, it is better to send it out for repair. It has to be check by a qualified tech.to fix and use it again.

Hope this initial info helps.

When the camera turns on the screen stays black and the lens will not come out.


Hello, "turn off the power and on again" its a very comman problem and occurs when the lens block assembly start malfunctioning. Actually the slide motor not work properly and until the lens not come out completely the camera will not work, that's why the error message appears "Access" and then screen shows "turn off the power and on again". In this situation you have to replace lens block assembly.And the part No. is with description is given below: A-1512-913-A LSV-1250A Thanks for using fixya.

Sony Cybershot Lens Stuck inside!!!


I have the exact same problem with my Cyber-shot; the lens is stuck inside. After trying everything to loosen it (like wedging a razor knife between the sections, even dropping it or banging it against a book, etc) non of which I recommend, I finally got it open by PUSHING on the black telescoping section surrounding the lens itself. For some reason, this worked!
