Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W70 Digital Camera
I took out battery to recharge. Placed battery back into camera after charged; however, when I turned on camera, the shutter goes in and out a couple of times and then a message pops on screen saying to turn off camera and turn back on. I do this, and same message again. Why can't I get this message to go away, and be able to take pictures again??

It is a fairly regular occurance at our shop to see a Sony camera which, when you turn it on, extends and retracts the lens slightly several times and then says "turn the power off then on again". We were unable to find the cause of this issue for quite a while and ended up forwarding cameras with this problem to Sony for repair. Recently one of our techs found the issue to be a "lazy" focus motor. The motor was still functioning, however it was not functioning 100% and did not perform as the camera expected, causing the error. This is not necessarily the issue with your camera, but it is likely given how many Sony's we have seen doing this. If the camera is under warranty, definately send it in. If it is not, find another repair provider as Sony will charge you quite a bit for the repair. David Millier Advance Camera Repair

A couple of things to try, and if these don't work you will probably need to have it serviced.
1. There is a reset button which may fix it. It's described on the first page of "Troubleshooting" in your manual. The camera diagrams at the front of your manual will help you find it, near the connector cover.
2. If it doesn't work after the reset button, pull the battery out and leave it out for two days, then put it back and try again.

I followed the advice on a couple of other boards which suggests you actually give the camera a few hard whacks on a tile floor. That worked for some people. With me, after whacking didn't work I took a knife used it to pry up the edge of the lense while it was trying to open. A little of that worked for me.
You can't imagine the sense of accomplishment I felt when the thing finally started working again after all the banging and prying. It's a tough little bugger!

This is a firmware problem that is common with many many digital cameras. It will have to be upgraded. The company will do this for $50
Otherwise you may be able to find a kit online and do it which would be hard to located
