Hi,


Error: TURN THE POWER OFF AND ON AGAIN is displayed on the LCD screen of the DSCS980 Camera when the Lens Mechanism is stuck or 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.

Allow the camera to remain without power for 60 seconds.

Reinsert the battery pack.

Turn on the camera.

To reset the Camera back to factory default, select the INITIALIZE Option from the Main Settings 1 Menu of the Camera to OK.This will set the user defined settings back to factory default. The images and videos will not get deleted.


If the issue persists, service may be required.


Good Luck

How to use sony dsc s980 as webcam


You can't. The DSC-S980 is designed to store images (and videos) to memory, not to stream live video to another device.

I know this wasn't the answer you wanted to see, but there it is.

Cyber-shot DSC-S730 Digital Camera: how do i download pictures from dsc-s980 sony...


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program, such as Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).

Sony dsc-w55 fell and the lens is stuck


Use bit more force to push or pull the lens as lens has been damaged. If applying bit more force lens goes to working, u saved $$$ otherwise, new lens option is always available at Sony repair shops.
