Before each use, open the battery casing, gently push on the batteries, jiggle them and make sure the contacts are clean. Then close and the camera should turn on the first time. Mine does, but who knows for how long. I think the problem is in the battery casing.

Same problem here.Camera is less than 1.5 years old and have already had to send it back twice.Lucky for me(I guess)that I bought the "extended warranty"
Was using the camera and all was fine.Literally two minutes later the few pictures it would take came out blurry.I turned the camera off,turned it back on and the word 'access" appeared on the screen.The lens would go in and out three times too.After the lens stopped doing whatever it was doing I would get the message to turn it off then on again.Doing that did nothing.
Very disappointed in the quality of this camera.The one I have is the cybershot dsc-w55
Guess its time to give canon cameras a try.

I did solution #2, no help, but followed with solution #1 with adaptation - I'm not kicking my camera! (the poor thing gets used by 450 students a year already -- it gets kicked enough) I turned it over, tapped gently on the face side nearest the wrist strap and it started up after two tries.

Bang it few times close to the lens area. Very gently! Voila there you are!!! :)
it's as simple as that!

I have this camera too and if you smack it on the left side of the camera the problem is fixed.
You may need to do it a couple times but eventually it goes away

Occasionally, a good "whack" in your hand can fix it. Just don't hit the lens, or lcd; or you can break them. Then there will be more damage.
YES THIS IS STUPIDE SIMPLE AND IT WORKS! (owner of a DSC W 55)

There could be two things causing this problem.
1- some dirt somehow got on the outside of side of the lense. So the lense could not fully retract or open out. As a result you can take any picture. If the lense comes out even a little bit, try to pull it out NOT too hard a few times. If it does not retract, turn the camera off and push the lense in (up and down) NOT too hard foe a few times. If the camera opened up 100% or retracted 100%, your camera should be back to normal.
2- If you dropped the camera, some mechanical part of the lense is broken or dislocated or the cable may have come loose. In this case you need to take out the lense from the camera and inpect it for broken pieces or loose cable. clean the outside of the lense and push the lense in and out a few times. Put the lense back on and your camera would be back to normal.

When I turn the camera on it says access on the screen, then it starts beeping and says "turn the camera off and then on again." I do this and the same thing happens. This happend once before, and I went to a troubleshooting web site and it was suggested that I take the camera in one hand and smack it into the other hand. Which I did. It started right up and has been working fine until now.
