i had cyber shot w55 i too facing this problem the lens comes out automatically 3 times and again it says please turn off and on again ............
.......I SHOWED IT TO SERVICE CENTER HE TOLD ME LENS IS NOT WORKING
IT MITY BE LENS PROBLEM.......
HUMMMMMMMM it costs 4000 rs it costs high
so that i kept it alone with sweet picks that i have taken with my camera hmmmmmmuu
It sounds TOTALLY CrAzY......trust 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
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.
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!!
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.
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.
