Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-S40 Digital Camera
My camera all of a sudden started telling me to turn power off and on. I cannot do anything and the lens cannot retract
This was happening to me, finally got it fixed by holding the power button down for 30seconds. must be 30 seconds, then it powered up and the screen popped up but i still held it down and then finally i had to turn it off and then back on and it WORKED!

Tips for a great answer:
There is a possibility that a bit of grit or debris has got stuck in the retraction mechanism or the lens has been knocked out of alignment.
The camera will have switches inside to tell it when the lens is retracted or extended and if it doesn't make contact within the expected time then it will give this error.
If the there is no warrantee or you dont mind voiding it then I would suggest carefully disassembling the camera and turning the retraction motor by hand to see where the problem is.
Please comment again if you discover anything.
