Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W50 Digital Camera
Every time i turn my camera on it shows a black screen and says "access" and then the lens keeps opening and closing and then says "Turn the power off and on again". The camera is unusable at the moment and is in my hands for only 3 months.
anyone know what to do?
whenever I turn the camera on, it says it turn the power off and on again --
over and over. I can access old photos, but can't take new ones.
You can try to remove the battery to allow the circuitry to reset to factory defaults. If that do not work, I would suggest to get repair under manufacturers warranty. Most electronics devices have one year warranty.

Error: TURN THE POWER OFF AND ON AGAIN is displayed on the LCD screen when the Lens Mechanism is stuck or when affected by any malfunction. If turning the power on and off again does not resolve the error message, try doing a power reset and Initialize option.
Performing a manual power reset
Turn off the camera.
Remove the battery pack.
Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds.
