Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W55 Digital Camera
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.
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.
Go Ahead. Use Us.

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.
