Re: camera

Grinding or clicking noises generally means that the lens drive gear has been damaged. This usually happens if the lens gets hit (when the lens is in the out (operate) position), or if the camera is in luggage or a bag and the power button is activated by something else in the bag. If the lens does not have clearance to travel this could cause the gear damage.
These gears can be replaced but you will have to carefully weigh whether these older camera is worth the cost of repair.
Sorry! I hate giving bad news.

When I turn on my Sony Cybershot DSCS950, I get this message: "Turn the Power off and on again." Is this something manageable, or does my camera have a terminal problem?

Hi Unfortunately not, it has lens unit defective. You can bring to local repair shop and they will charge around $45 to 95 depend on what they really want to charge. Thanks and best regard!
