When the camera is turned on, the lens goes in and out about 3 times and then the screen displays "Turn the power off and on again". Of course, when I follow these instructions it does the same...


This sounds to me like a lens problem and your camera would need to be serviced. If you're in the East Coast or New York City area give us a call and we'll see what we can do for you. Hope this helps!

When the camera is switched on the lens goes in and out twice and then the message that appears on the screen is 'turn the power off and on again'


Hi,


Error: TURN THE POWER OFF AND ON AGAIN is displayed on the LCD screen when the Lens Mechanism is stuck or when affected by any malfunction. If turning the power on and off again does not resolve the error message, try doing a power reset and Initialize option.

Performing a manual power reset

Turn off the camera.

Remove the battery pack.

Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds.

Allow the camera to remain without power for 60 seconds.

Reinsert the battery pack.

Turn on the camera.

To reset the Camera back to factory default, select the INITIALIZE Option from the SET UP1 Menu of the Camera to OK.This will set the user defined settings back to factory default. The images and videos will not get deleted.


If the issue persists, service may be required.

My camera says "Turn the power off and on again"


there is a problem with the lens already and it might need replacement. chances are the price of a lens is almost equivalent to a new camera.. just buy a new one.

"00" Apparture


If an aperture of "00" is displayed on the camera's LCD panel, perform the following steps in order. Check after each step to see if the problem remains, and proceed to the next step if it does. (In some cases, you may see "Err 01" displayed on the LCD panel.) 1. Check if the lens is correctly mounted on the camera. If no lens is attached to the camera, "00" will be displayed for the aperture value. 2. Clean the lens contacts. Turn the camera's power switch to OFF, and then detach the lens from the camera to clean the contacts. Use a blower to blow away dust on the lens. Do not touch both the camera's or lens' electrical contacts with your fingers while cleaning the lens. Turn the power switch to ON again and check the aperture value displayed on the LCD panel. Refer to the Instruction Manual provided with your camera for instructions for detaching or mounting the lens. Also, prevent any foreign materials or dust from getting into the camera through the lens mount, and be sure not to damage the contacts. 3. Remove the battery pack. Turn the camera's power switch to OFF and remove the battery pack. Then reinsert the battery pack, and then turn the power switch to ON again.
