CAMERA WON'T TURN ON

WHEN YOU TURN THE CAMERA ON IT CLICKS A COUPLE TIMES AND THEN TELLS YOU TO TURN IT OFF AND ON AGAIN. IT JUST KEEPS DOING THIS OVER AND OVER AND WILL NOT TURN ON.

    My camera dosent go on the last time I tried to open it it blinked several times, now it dosent want to open at all

    When I turn it on the lenses open and everything looks normal but the screen stays black and says "Access" three times, then says "turn the power off and on again". It's been doing this for awhile and there doesn't seem to be any other problems with it.

Hey BROOKY53,
This message is most likely being caused by one of 3 reasons. You might need to format your memory card, or you need to initialize the camera (instructions on how to do this should be in your camera manual). This message could also be due to a hardware failure, and if this is the case you would need to have it looked at by an authorized service center.

Sincerely,
Allan

Try to troubleshoot the camera.
1) take the battery out of the camera
2) hold the shutter button down for thirty seconds
3) replace the battery
4) turn on
If the camera doesn't turn on you have to send it in to be taken care of. This means that there is something wrong with your internal lense. A very helpful number to call is Sony Customer service: 1 800 222 7669
They will try to help you more, and give you a place to send your camera.

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 Main Settings 1

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.


Thanks for contacting FixYa

Please turn camera off and then on again. it


Had the same issue with my DMC-FZ50 for a couple weeks, and tried turning it onn and off countless times. I could hear something happening inside the lens on start-up and surmised the internal shutter was trying to open but wasn't able to. I guessed that the turn off/turn on idea was to resend the command impulse to open the shutter. So.... I t urned it on while repeatedly hitting the side of the lens firmly with the palm of my hand and.....it worked!!!!

This is a firmware problem that is common with many many digital cameras. It will have to be upgraded. The company will do this for $50
Otherwise you may be able to find a kit online and do it which would be hard to located

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
