The eye of the lens won't close anymore and keep saying to turn the power on and off again, what should I do?


You might try removing the battery for a minute or two to reset the camera. You may lose any special settings in the process. After reinstalling the battery, try turning the power on and off again.

Dropped camera and now the lens is stuck out,when i turn it on the screen says turn power on and off again.i do that,but it keeps saying it still and camera makes a weird noise when i turn it on,and lens...


Hello,

Bummer huh? I dropped mine a while back and damaged my battery cover!

I would try...taking out the batteries and reinstalling them! This may reset your camera?

Otherwise, I would do a web search and type in:

Sony Cyber-shot Camera DSC-W50 troubleshooting

Hope this helps you get your camera working again!

Kind Regards!

My Sony DSC-W230 turns on and lens keep opening and closing, and then it shows "turn power off and on again". how do i fix this ?


This sounds like a stuck lens. Here is a good blog about things to try to fix it:
http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/fixing-lens-error-on-digital-camera.html
The blog is about a lens error, but when the camera lens opens and closes, there is often a problem with the lens.
Also make sure the battery is fully charged, and good. Also make sure the contacts are clean on the battery, and also inside the camera.
If all fails to get it working again, get an estimate on repair first, since the cost can justify just going ahead and buying a new camera.
Good luck, and hope this helps.

LENS PROBLEM


The slightly open shutter is the reason for this problem. Thank God you mentioned it.
Solution: Try with your fingers to shift the shutter “blades” back and forth to see if they move freely. If they do no move freely it maens the shutter “blasdes” and stuck by particles/dust/something. So you just continue to shift them like that untill they are free again. Once they are free turn your camera back on and it should perform as normal.

So you having with stuck problem on your camera?

Try this:
1. When it's try to closing.
2. Push it.
3. But don't try to push when it's not trying to closing the lens.

I having the same problem before, and it works for me.

Any questions? Feel free to ask me =]

My camera keeps on saying lens error and it wont turn off or on.


the lens error is usually a sign that the opening mechanism failed .
try to reset it manually (push VERY SLOW on the lens cilinder to help it close)
if it is an expensive camera you can send it to the manufacturer for repairs as a better and safer 
solution.

When i turn on my camera it says Turn the power off and on again


Hey, my camera the dsc- w80 did the same thing. When I turned it on, the lens opened 3-4 times and then it said "turn the power off and on again".
When the lens opened an closed, I pulled on it with my fingers and twisted it. I kept doing that: Turned the camera on and off, kept pulling and twisting the lens and now my camera works again!

Lens Error, Restart


Hi

What you are seeing is a generic stuck lens error message, turning off the camera and turning it on again will not fix the lens unfortunately.

Your lens needs to be cleaned or repaired, and if it cant be repaired it needs to be replaced. There are online places that will do it for a decent price and there are others that overcharge by way too much.

Fixya rules prevent me from giving you a link to anything off Fixya that would help you fix your camera.

Good luck from....
