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 centre 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. Also, please be so kind to let me know if you found this helpful.

Regards
Andrea

When I turn the camera on it says "Turn the Power off and on again"! I do but keep getting the same message?


If turning the power on and off again does not resolve the error message, try doing a power reset.
If the issue is still unresolved, service may be required.

Hello Emilio, it seems that your camera was in contact with water or Coca-Cola. In order to repair it you should change light guide plate part number: 147913011 or LCD part number: 180572011 or both. Best regards, Arpi

Same thing here Tankengine. My problem started when my camera took a spill of about 4 feet. After that I've been getting the same message you have been. I've sent a message to Sony so hopefully they will have an answer. Something tells me it's going to involve sending the camera away, and spending money on an old camera.
