Hi,
Symptom shows lens assembly is defective and need to be replaced. Loading motor in lens mechanism is jammed for some reason and causing shut down camera.
Let me know model number of your Sony camera to provide you lens assembly part number info, if needed or take it to local camera repair shop for lens assembly replacement.
Thanks.

Just take the back cover off, unplug the cable that runs to the switches from the main board and plug it back in. I had the same problem and it now works great!

Why does my Sony Cybershot DSCW370 Turn on but the LCD screen doesnt stay on????


You might have the Power Save Mode on, if camera wakes up after you depress the shutter button and the screen lights up, then more than likely you have the Power Save Mode on? The settings come in 3 values, screen turns off after 30 seconds, next setting is screen off after 60 seconds. Go the the cameras menu and then navigate to Main Settings, scroll down until you find Power Save Mode and adjust it to standard, hope this helps?

I do have a DSCT100 cybershot and encountered the same error.

I did a lot of troubleshooting to resolve this error. Here are some tips:

First, make sure the camera has fully charged battery. try to replace the memorystick if possible. If you dont have an extra memorystick, try borrowing one from friends and check if the error will appear. If it does it is a problem on the media.

You could also remove the battery for a few minutes and try again.

If will not work, set the unit in PLAY mode before turning it ON or immediately right after you press the power. If it successfully gets through the PLAY mode, initialize the settings and restart th camera. You could initialize it by going to the menu and then setup.

Hope this helps... ü

My camer won't turn on


Does the lense extend when you power it on in "snapshot"mode?
Could be the switch is sticking. These cameras use concave cup button that mash on gold foil on the circuit board. Could be a bad switch. $$$$$ costly.
Interested in selling it?

Turning the flash off


Set the mode dial to Camera (normal) then by pressing the Up button on the control pad, you may switch between the different flash settings. The settings are:
  • Forced flash (lightning bolt)
  • Slow synchro (bolt plus SL) - this is forces the flash to strobe out of sync so a dark background can be lit up.
  • No flash (no bolt)
