"Access" appears when camera turns on

When I turn on my camera, I get the word "access" on the screen. I've checked to make sure the battery is full but that doesn't seem to matter. I turn it on and off and that doesn't help either. Any ideas?

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.

SOURCE: Access appearing on screen

Hello!

Same mechanism problem here on a DSC-W50. For me, it did not work out to PULL the lens, but to push them. I just opened the camera and it tried to calibrate the lens with no success for about 4 times, after it just let them out and displayed the "power off and on your camera" message. The problem is that on this model of camera when the lens is out you cannot push or pull it. So I thought of a trick: when the lens is moving, you can pull or push them. Anyway, this is what I did: with the lens out, i placed the camera with the lens towards a soft surface (bed) and gently pushed on the side with the display. First times it didn't work, so I had to push harder and finally it worked and now my lens is aligned and the camera is working as if it were new. I suggest you try to push or pull the lens while it is moving GENTLY at first, and if it does not work, try harder - really hard! It will do a click at some time and work fine!

This fault seems related to the processor controller unit as it fails to reset when the power is switched. Also the lens error is due to failure of the lens control system. You can remove battery and card replace battery and while switching on tap the lens hood on your hands so as to disengage any dirt or mechanism being struck.
Use some air to blow between the lens to dislodge any sand particles struck inside. Unless you are familiar with handling of small devices must the camera be opened. If so check the voltage on the motor drive, check the auto focus and Zoom drives, it must be free with manual movement. If jammed the motor can be removed and realased. If none of these works then you can think of taking consensus with the service centre.
Get estimate before you decide. It will be good to have it checked at the authorised service as you do not have to run around for spares.

When i on the camera "Access" appears on the screen,the lens comes out and goes back 3 or 4 times and after few moments it appears "turn the power off and on again".When it is shut off and turned on it do...


If the camera has recently been dropped you may have lens damage that's preventing it from powering up. If it hasn't been dropped your problem may be due to weak/worn out batteries or corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera - which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then clean the battery contacts, place the batteries back in the camera and give them a full charge (assuming that you're using rechargeable batteries). This cleaning clears the problem about 80% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, it may be time to replace the batteries, or the camera may have a problem that requires professional repair.

APPEARS TO BE A COMMON PROBLEM WITH THIS CAMERA.
The internal contact to the LCD screen is loose. Grab the camera using both hands with thumb and index fingers on bottom corners. (usually the left bottom corner) Squeeze hard! Voila! You will be doing this occaisonally as it drops out.

Access and turn on again the camera


I called Sony at 800-222-7669 and was told to turn camera off, remove battery, turn camera on holding the power button for one full minute, put battery back in and power up as usual. Probably the one minute drains the residual energy in a capacitor.

I passed the info to my wife but she had solved the problem by tapping on the front to release a bind on the lens coming out. Probably caused by handling during her trip to California. So I don't know if the one-minute thing works but it is certainly worth a try.

Hope this helps you!
