Re: on and off

Camera will do this if batteries are weak. If you have fresh good batteries and or charger on camera and its still doing this..Then lens need replacing .

Lens seems to be stuck

It sounds TOTALLY me...I thought " are you serious?" when I read it BUT metallicachi is RIGHT!! I had the same problem where my camera would turn on, lens would ever so slightly pop out, three beeps and power down. Soooo, I tried what metallicachi had said to do. I turned it on, ever so lightly hit the lens on my desk as it was poping out and BAM.....instantly fixed. Use this solution at your own risk of course but I was desperate and glad I was cause I was just saved from having to invest money into another camera. Thank You Sooooooo Much metallicachi!!!

Three beeps when i try to turn it on

i had the same problem a while back. I fooled around with my camera lens a bit and it turned out that one side of the lens was sticking out a bit. I pressed down on this and pushed the power button and it worked. The next time I turned it on the same thing happened but if you keep doing the same thing it should work.

Hope this helps!

Sony Cybershot DSC-W150,screen reads turn power on and off again

You may not believe this and I hope you haven't spent a lot of money fixing your problem. I read that some people had a different error message coming up on their Sony Cybershot DSC-W150's and in order to fix it, they literally banged the lens against their knee while the lens was out and it re-focused and the error message disappeared. I tried this while my camera was doing exactly what you described above AND IT WORKED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

After 2 or 3 firm blows, my LCD screen came up and focused. I can't believe it myself, but I was just desperate enough to try it and VOILA!
Good luck!!

Samsung L100 digital camera beep problem

If the lens is retracted, hold up the camera to your eye and look at the lens. If you see one end sticking out a little bit, push that side in and press the power button. It should work.
If the lens isn't retracted, push the lens around until it is in its regular position. When you press the power button, it will retract and come out again and should work fine.

Hope this advice helps!

My camera says "Turn the power off and on again"

there is a problem with the lens already and it might need replacement. chances are the price of a lens is almost equivalent to a new camera.. just buy a new one.

Lens/zoom wont come out

The lens mechanism inside of the lens unit is damaged. The fix is to change the lens. You can send the camera to authorized service rep for an estimate. I believe that the cost of service many be close to or even more expensive than replacing the camera.
