Lens mechanism is damaged in your camera. Does lens pops out and in your camera? If yes, try to tapp it while lens pops out.

When I turn on the camera the lens comes out and then retracks and it says to turn the power off and on again. when I turn the camera off it says the same thing


Hi, I have to say that's a problem I've seen fairly often with the Sony W320. My suggestion is to take out the battery and make sure it's fully charged then put it back in. If that doesn't work I'd contact Sony.

DSC-W150 SteadyShot says turn power on & off & lens pops in/out


I had the same problem with my Sony DSC-W150 camera. It turned out to have an easy fix. At the same time, press the power button and depress the shutter button halfway (the one you snap to take pics) as if you were trying to engage the autofocus without pressing the button down entirely. The lens will attempt to autofucus, which in my case was enough extra power to dislodge whatever debris/sand had clogged the lens. Hope this works for you!

When i turn on my camera it says Turn the power off and on again


Hey, my camera the dsc- w80 did the same thing. When I turned it on, the lens opened 3-4 times and then it said "turn the power off and on again".
When the lens opened an closed, I pulled on it with my fingers and twisted it. I kept doing that: Turned the camera on and off, kept pulling and twisting the lens and now my camera works again!

Turn the power on and off again


I fixed this issue with my Sony Cybershot by gently (carefully) hitting the camera 3 times against a carpeted bench with the lens retracted and the camera turned off. It seems the lens gears were stuck. Now the camera works fine again.

My camera is a Lumix DMC - LS70 and the same thing was happening to me, the camera kept telling me to turn it off which never solved the problem and the lens never closed when the camera turned off. What i did was, i zoomed out as i turned the camera on (while it was in a picture taking mode) and it corrected itself. Try it and see what happens.
