SOURCE: "Turn the power off and on again" error message

I just had the same problem and I didn't know what to do and I found this post it was somewhat helpful. After I read this I disassembled the camera and I pulled out the lens cover up a bit its held by this white plastic inside be careful not to pull to hard because it looks like it could break easily. After I got the lens cover a little bit above the lens itself I powered it up and the lens MOVED! I tested it again and it worked. So I placed the lens cover back over the lens. And it all back together. It was a really quick fix it took me less than 10 minutes. I hope this is helpful to anyone that gets "Turn off the power off and on again" error.

I reformat my sd card in the computer to remove all the photos the when im using it in my sony cybershot camera it appears "reinsert memory card" how can i fix the it to use it again in the camera

When you need to delete the photos from the SD memory card, do not use your computer to do it. Use your camera to format the SD memory card.
To fix this problem, insert the SD memory card in your camera then go to the camera's Menu and format the SD memory card.

Remove the battery and the memory card, press and hold power for 60 seconds this should remove residual voltage and reset the processor ic, if there is no change the systems controller board has failed, cheaper to replace camera.
