Try removing the Battery out of the camera. Then hold the Power switch on for one minute or more without releasing switch.
Refit Battery and try switching on again. Keep fingers crossed, it worked for me.

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.

Lens error response


well not a lot to go on here is there?

what sort of error.. turn power off and on again ? the lense oes in and out 3 times and then says turn off power and turn on again?

if this is so, use some canned air and blow around the lens joints when turned on, turn it off and on to see if that fixed it. If not turn off power bang face down on palm several time ( no its not a joke) then turn it on again,keep doing this untill it clears it will save you $175

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!

Error message


my camera did the same thing, lens retracts 3 or 4 times, and then proceeded with an error message "turn off and on again". I pressed the power button probably about 10 times, didn't work, so then i gave it a good smack on the top of the frame a few times while repeatedly pressing the power button and it did the trick. Hasn't gave me problems since...hope it helps
