Whenever you switch on the camera the lense comes out to a certain places, stops and the camera is initialized to take the picture. In some cases when there is a friction in the movement of the lense, it does not comes out fully up to the proper position. so the camera mechanism draws it back and again pushes it out. this happens 3-4 times and if still the lense does not reaches its position it displays "turn the power off and on again" and the problem continues.

Your camera needs a repair of the lense assembly.

Problem with sony cyber shot dsc- w80


I jeremy- i was having the exact same problem today. I phoned Sony repair, who then had me take out the battery and hold down the power button for about 30 seconds..reinsert the battery and power up. Didn't fix it. I came home and read some posts on here. I ended up trying the gently twist the lens as it was zooming in and out..I twisted a little and pulled a little. About the third time, it worked. (I also held the power button down with the battery in, just to try..maybe that helped, too). Sony wants flat fee of $91 to fix..is that what they told you?

Turn camera power ON so Lens will extend.

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!
