A $ for every time I have typed this fix I would be a millionaire . THIS IS NOT A JOKE..

Turn the camera on and then slap it hard into the palm of your hand several times, Turn it OFF and ON again to see if it has cured the problem. Keep doing this until it does work. I was given this fix by a Sony Tech and he laughed that they charge $90 to do just that!
I did it to my own camera and it definitely worked. Some take more banging than others. If you used it at the beach then a grain of sand is caught in the mechanism. It does not take much dirt to jam the lens and cause this problem. BUT THIS FIX DOES WORK

This is usually caused by sticky liquid spillage or impact. Try popping up the flash with your finger nail when it tries to rise and then cleaning out with Windex on a Q-tip. Sometimes you get rust on the pivot screw on the release side.

The screen shows everything backwards. How can I correct this.


You did not mention what type of camera it is. Most camcorders are meant to work with the screen turning 180 degrees to face the other side so that you can remotely take pictures of yourself while you can see yourself. This if your camera gets stuck to that position when you turn back your screen then it shows upside down. One trick is for you to reset your camera or turn your screen to 180 degrees and then switch it off and then on again. Turning your screen back to see what happens this might help.

How to switch on flash on my praktica slimpix 5200


On the 5240 similar model you press the right hand navigation button on the back of the camera. It has a flash symbol engraved on it but not very clear on mine. The screen goes blank as if nothing happens but it is charging the flash and with fresh batteries will come back in 5sec or so. Then when you shoot it will flash, and there will be a flash symbol showing on the screen.....Press again to alter to fixed rather than auto flash, and again to turn off.

Flash doesn't work on nikon coolpix l12


I actually just fooled around with mine because it was doing the same thing. It will only flash in the scene mode, but not the normal quickshot mode. i noticed under the camera symbol on the screen said BSS and i went into the menu and clicked on BSS and turned it off b/c it was on and that worked finally.maybe u can try it, if its the same situation.

When I turn my Sony Cybershot 7.2 mega pixel camera on, the lens keeps going in and out and the message "Turn the Power on and off again" shows up on the LCD screen. When I 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,

My camera is a Lumix DMC - LS70 and the same thing was happening to me, the camera kept telling me to turn it off which never solved the problem and the lens never closed when the camera turned off. What i did was, i zoomed out as i turned the camera on (while it was in a picture taking mode) and it corrected itself. Try it and see what happens.
