    I have same problem as everyone has described. I tried intializing and that didn't make any difference. Screen shows "access". The camera has two small lights above the viewing screen. The bottom light flashes Yellow then quits and screen says "turn power on and off gain".

    No solution so far?

    I have the same problem with this camera....I may just go buy a whole new camera if I can't get it fixed cheap. I went to a dirt race track and it was drizzling. I was able to take pictures all night. When I went to turn the camera on the next day it was kept telling me to turn the power off and then back on. Are there any easy fixes?

Hello samtx930, "turn off the power and on again" its a very commen problem and occurs when the lens block assembly start malfunctioning. Actually the slide motor not work properly and until the lens not come out completely the camera will not work, that's why the error message appears "Access" and then screen shows "turn off the power and on again". In this situation you have to replace lens block assembly.And the part No. is with description is given below: 1-788-363-11 OPTICS UNIT (ED13A) Thanks for using fixya.
