Dropped camera and now the lens is stuck out,when i turn it on the screen says turn power on and off again.i do that,but it keeps saying it still and camera makes a weird noise when i turn it on,and lens...


Bummer huh? I dropped mine a while back and damaged my battery cover!

I would try...taking out the batteries and reinstalling them! This may reset your camera?

Otherwise, I would do a web search and type in:

Sony Cyber-shot Camera DSC-W50 troubleshooting

Hope this helps you get your camera working again!

Kind Regards!

ACCESS message

One guy with the same problem fixed it by running over it with his SVU and posting the video on Youtube. It's smashed but "access" has disappeared from the screen.

No matter what picture setting is selected the camera, Sony DSC-W50, it will only take video. Does anyone know how to fix this problem? Thanks

I think mode selector dial is not working in your DSC-W50 that is why camera is set on video mode.
Replace mode selector dial as mentioned in below image, part number is...

1-479-584-11 CONTROL SW BLOCK (SW110T) (for SILVER color)
1-479-584-21 CONTROL SW BLOCK (SW120TB) (for BLACK color)

Available in Part Store.

Dsc-w50 when turn on the word access and lens goes in and out

It's probably stuck focus. Contact your local Sony service center, but if they ask too much, you can contact me at and I will give you a good price.
I work in Sony service center.

I dropped my Sony DSC-W50 camera with the photo shot mode

Some problem in the lens system.
Try to either push in the lens more, or pull on it, if the lens is out at all.
If it continues, sell it for parts, as is on a site such as Ebay.

DSC-W50 sony cybershot

I had the same problem with my DSC-W55. I actually just called the customer service number on the sony website and they told me how to solve the problem.

- Take your battery out
- Press and hold the power button for 60 seconds
- Re enter your battery
- Voila.. it should work when you turn it on. Mine did.
