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

Do a BACKUP (Camera's internal memory & Memory card) and then format both of them and see whether the problem still persists. I think your camera's build in memory is full. Most of the camera's internal memory is not too big and you get these kind if massages. If you are not using an additional memory card (e.g. SD Card), I would advise you to use one.

Good Luck!

Hi,

The Camera is displaying the Turn the power Off and On again message when the Lens in the Camera is stuck or when any internal malfunction happened.
To resolve the issue turn the power off and on several times. If the issue persists, try power resetting the Camera. To power reset the Camera, remove the battery from the Camera.
Press and hold the power button on the Camera for 30 seconds.
Remain the camera without power for 60 seconds and re-insert the battery.
Also try resetting the Camera back to factory default. Press the RESET button located at the lower right corner of the control buttons using a sharp pointed object.
If the issue persists, service may be required.

Good Luck
Thanks for using FixYa

I have tried the tapping and resetting fixes - nothing works.


Hi

You need your lens replaced but we cannot get the P200 lens at this time. You can look online for a defective camera with a good lens and make one good camera from the two.

Hope this helps.
