Turn camera on and off again error

When I try to turn on my camera, I hear something working quite hard inside, and then after the Sony Mavica start screen I get a message saying that I should turn the camera off and then on again. I've tried changing discs, and re-charging, but it doesn't seem to help.

It comes that Disk not being recognized. I had the same camera before. You need to use good quality CDRs or CD-RWs. Usually Sony Mavica disks best with that camera. Maybe you cannot find Mavica in market then go for Sony, Philips, Imation miniCDR/W. also keep the lens of the internal CD writer clean. If you need further assistance please post your question

Good Luck

Something must be in there ! Couod one of your little kids have somehow put something in there which did NOT belong in there ??

Take a good working penlite...and LOOK inside the slot to see if there's some foreign object in there.

Sony MVC FD85 won't turn on.

There are some micro fuses on these units. They are hard soldered onto the board and are surface mount devices. They are usually marked F301, 302 etc ( from my memory) if you examine the board and interior of the case there is a warning notice to replace with the exact same type and a small arrow pointing to their location.
The mavica often has a thin sheet of clear plastic covering the power board
