Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-N2 Digital Camera
A great camera. Went to use it, and when turned on, it reads: "Turn the Power Off and On Again". I have done it many times, changed the battery (which is fully charged), and no results. The lens comes out, and I can download pictures, but cannot take any pictures. Please advise. Craig Burton
DSC N2 :The switch off switch on and "Accessing" message with the beeping was so annoying. As the lens came out, I held it in place and turned the camera off, I could feel the motoor pulling (three times ) and gently resisted the retraction. the camera turned off with the lens out. When I turned it on the problem was resolved (hopefully permanently). €z

Solution #3 worked for me. I held the lens open as the camera was shutting off. Then when I turned it on, the "access" and "turn camera off and on again" problem was fixed. Thanks so much for posting! Saved $$ on sending it to Sony to repair!

I never would have believed that banging it on the table would work, but it did. Amazing! Thanks!!!!

OH MY GOSH!!! I had the SAME problem!!! I tapped it on the table and it worked!!! I didn't want to do that, because my husband would be so mad if I broke it even more! However since several people tried it, I thought I would. THANKS!!! It works!

Ok so....I had actually went to the beach today and then dropped it in the SAND. AAAGGHHHH! I got the same message as you all. I took it home and could hear some sand in the lense as it opened. I tried smacking on the table a couple of times. It worked!

Hey i had the same problem, and while i really dont suggest it i found that if i pushed in on the lense a little bit the lens got back on track and everything seemed to be ok.
