Question about Sony Cameras

1 Answer

Sony Cybershot DSC W90, when I turn the camera on I get a message that says to turn off and back on again. It will allow me to view photos already taken but will not turn on to take pictures. I hear the lens trying to go out into picture taking mode, but it does not open.

There are a number of solutions you can try,

1.

  1. you will need to turn off the camera and hold the camera on the edges in a way that you wouild hold a pack of cards
  2. you will "smack", or "pack" on all sides besides the side that has the buttons. carefull to hold it steady and not too tight that you would squeeze the lens or LCD screen on the back.
  3. this will cause it to resync in.

2.
turn on the camera, wait for the message to appear, then open the battery compartment and take out the battery out while the camera was still on. put the battery back in, and turn the camera on

Your problem may be due to corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, the camera may require professional repair.

Displays file error message when trying to playback still images and video footage


Did you take the card and insert into computer/device to view photos?

Viewing photos can alter the format of the photos thereby preventing your camera from reading them.

I viewed some photos and rotated a few photos and my camera no longer recognizes the format.

good luck

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!

Sony Cybershot DSC-W90


I had the same problem, I gently pried open the black windows of the shutter with my index finger nail, and applied very gentle pressure (pulling outward) while I pressed the power button. THEN... the whole zoom assembly moved EVER SO SLIGHTLY. So, I repeated the exact same process, with a little bit of pressure... and voila... the lens assembly opened fully and I was able to take pictures.
