Hello

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. 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. Please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance.

Regards
Andrea

Why is camera stuck on "set date and time"?


You need to say which model number you have. Usually you use the center toggle to move the cursor to a choice, then press it in to make the choice. The camera should work whether you choose a date or ignore the message.

Cannot set date and time or move off that screen


The joystick switch is easy to break when putting the camera on it's back. The switch is soldered to a small circuit board and the pins brake. Sometimes the inside of the switch breaks also. The card is fairly easy to replace if you can get one. Try Ebay. There are also individuals like myself that can replace that card for around $20 and $5 shipping.

I don`t know how to change the date and time of my sony dsc-t200


Hello there. You can do it this way:
1 Select (Clock Settings) from (Settings) on the HOME screen. 2 Touch [Clock Settings]. 3 Touch the desired date display format, then touch [t]. The clock settings screen appears. 4 Touch each item, then set its numeric value by touching v/V. 5 Touch [OK]. To cancel the clock setting Touch [Cancel] or [BACK] in step 5.

My G9 will not save the time and date so it will not allow me past this screen to picture taking mode


There is a separate data/time cell(button cell) in cameras. Check if yours has one and get it replaced.
Mine goes past that screen when I press menu button(that acts like cancel button).

I can no longer take pictures.


the date and time usually get reset when the batteries are removed or are going flat. the screen can sometimes be black when you turn your camera on but you just need to wait a few seconds and press the 'ok' button- that usually fixes it. as to not taking a picture is says how to fix that in the instruction manual (in mine anyway) so you can probably just refer to that.
