SOURCE: 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!

SOURCE: formatting error on my olympus fe-340

never format the card from the computer... format using the camera.. use data recovery software to retrieve pictures if you have not formatted it... also make sure to "safely remove hardware" before actually unplugging the camera from the computer

SOURCE: when turning camera on, lens opens and closes , then it says turn the power off and on again

The problem is that the lens is jammed.
Here's what I did: I smacked the side of the camera on a tile floor a few times, until the lens started trying to open. Then I used a knife to pry up the lens a little. Believe it or not, it is now taking pictures. You can't imagine how excited I was to get it working.

If this sounds like a joke (it did to me), I got the idea from these forums:

Good luck!

Not sure whether you'd call it a solution, but I took my battery out then put it back a couple of times and the camera started working normally again!

Brand new camera keep getting message "card error" can you tell me why i keep getting this message


Two possible reasons: 1. The card needs to be formatted in the camera to work. 2. The card may be to large a capacity for this model camera. For example, if the camera can use up to a 2GB card and you try to use an SDHC 8GB card, you will get "card error" so check your manual.

One thing to test before going to repair, make sure you are using a fully charged and correct battery for your camera.
If so, the camera will need repair. This is a common problem and can be fixed. Teleplan Camera Repair does a great job and their blog is also very informative.

Turn your power on and off again


Sony Technical Support Team is the first place to ask. This may be a firmware error, in which case the camera will need to be replaced.

Same thing here Tankengine. My problem started when my camera took a spill of about 4 feet. After that I've been getting the same message you have been. I've sent a message to Sony so hopefully they will have an answer. Something tells me it's going to involve sending the camera away, and spending money on an old camera.
