Try re-charging your battery or you may check your memory stick. If the cause of this problem is by an accidental drop of the device, then may be you suspected right on the lens. It may cause dis a line of gears... ^_^

Unfortunately, many cameras that fall prey to lens error problems (Access Error on Sony's) can only be corrected by professional repair. But, here are some last resort troubleshooting steps that you can try that may correct it. They only seem to work for less than 40% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty (or repair cost approaches that of the camera), they're worth that try.

That's a common problem on Cybershot cameras, happened to me twice, the solution is to get it to a camera shop for repair.
The cause could be dirt or a malfunction on the lens extending mechanism.

Hey kimmc279,
According to the manufacturer the file error message should mean the camera experienced an error while trying to read the file. One thing you could try is formatting your memory stick in camera, and of course upload any images you have on it to your computer first. If that didn't work I would try initializing the camera back to factory settings, which can be done in the setup menu. I hope this helps!

Go Ahead. Use Us.

I just happen to cross your question, searching for something else. You may have to take pictures with the time and date on screen and it will save it that way. To request it after is just letting you know when it was shot. so go to display when taking shots on the set menu or button and have it visible when shooting.
