Hello

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel after dropping it. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

Hope the advise is useful.

Regards
Andrea

Have you checked the batteries on the camera? Weak batteries will shut the camera off any time ther is a call for power that exceeds the charge left in the battery.If after you change or charge the battery and you are still having this issue let me know and we can go from there.
Please use Sony Cyber-shot batteries for DSC-H2 model camera
If your camera keeps shutting down and not allowing any pictures to be taken, use the 3 pixel setting. It may allow you to get at least some use out of the camera. After reading numerous reviews on this unit and comparing the performance of mine to that of a friend who also has it, I have to say that SONY made a slew of defective cameras and this should have been a recall. Some cameras seem to work fine, thus the good reviews. Others, and there are many many of these, shut down unexpectedly, won't work well on the 5 mega pixel setting, take terrible pictures (especially in low light) and generally aren't worth the money you paid for them.
What I soon learned was that it was running low on battery power and needed to be off most of the time or you would go through batteries like butter. Even when the camera is off and loaded with new cells it will quickly deplete itself. So you have to turn the thing off if you aren't about to shoot...this makes catching that special shot almost impossible, especially since when you do turn it on you then have to wait and wait and wait for the shutter to snap. Forget anything with low light

Hi,

The camera's charge-couple device (CCD) within the camera must have suffered a short-circuit due to the sea water, rendering the imaging device damaged. As a result, the battery would drain pretty quick while its switched on.

Please take the camera to the nearest service center to have it repaired.

Thanks!

Power key doesn´t work


There must be a problem with your batteries. If you have recently charged your batteries and it happens again, you should try a new set of rechargeable batteries.

You can try conserving charging power usage on camera by turning the flash off so that it doesn't precharge for the next shot.

Battery empty


Are you using Lithium batteries?

I have seen other brand digital cameras do the same thing with new alkaline batteries.

Lithium batts are more expensive, but they outlast several sets of alkalines, so they actually end up costing less, compared to usage.
