I'm sorry that the camera display the eror: turn the power off and on again. If turning the power on and off again does not resolve the error message, try doing a power reset. Refer the URL for the information to reset a Cyber-shot® digital still camera back to original factory settings:

If the issue is still unresolved, service may be required.

I turned on my ps3 and nothing is happening it is not giving me the option to sign in or anything. just the blue backround nothing else and now it wont let me turn it off.


Sounds like you PS3 software has become corrupt. Follow these steps to sort it but I must warn you, you will lose all your save games!!
Step 1. Turn the PS3 onto standby (red light on)
Step 2. Press and hold the power button. It will beep as soon as you press it, then beep again 5 seconds later then beep once more and turn off. Release the power button when it turns off.
Step 3. Press and hold the power button again. It will beep as soon as you press it, then beep again 5 seconds later, then there will be 2 quick beeps together. As soon as you hear the two beeps let go of the power button.
Step 4. Your PS3 will now boot into recovery mode. Connect you controller via USB when asked and press the PS button.
Step 5. Select option 5 from the recovery menu, "Restore PS3 system". This will rewrite your PS3 software and hopefully should sort your problem.

Today, I was using it. Turned it off for a whle, went to ues it again & it wouldnt turn on, the power light was on & three beeps came out of my camera! It wont turn off until I take the battery...


Most probably the lens problem, it got stuck or it's damaged. Try to gently pull out the lens to see is it only got stuck or take it to service

Lens wont open


Lens mechanism isn't good to work properly so camera shut down the power. Try to tap the lens/ camera while power up.
If you have a memory card in the camera, take it out before turning the camera on

I have a sony cybershot DSC-P200 an while using it at the weekend it just froze on me the shutter closed half way and wont go any further it was fully charged and charged again when i got home and still it...


Hey pauline04,
There are a couple of reasons you would be told to turn the camera off and then back on. I would first make sure the battery is fully charged, and if it is not I would charge it. The most common reason for this message is something is obstructing the movement of the lens (i.e. sand), which can sometimes be fixed by blowing compressed air into the side of the lens in hopes to dislodge what is stuck in the lens. If neither of these options works you could try a manual reset of the camera by pressing the reset button inside the memory card compartment with a pointed object, and then turn the power on. If this works it will reset the camera to the factory specifications. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Polaroid i834 wont turn on


Same problem; however, after taking a hard look at the camera I noticed that the lens was tweaked; that is, is was not evenly extended so I pulled (by hand) on the inner, extended lens piece and viola; I turned it on, the lens retracted and extended upon application of power as usual.

My guess is the 3 beeps is much like a BIOS error with a PC...when there is a hardware problem they beep on startup...in this case, the camera was letting me know the lens was stuck.

Camera won't work


I had the exact same problem. Camera turned on but turned off soon after, with lens still outside. Not to mention that awful beeping noise. I noticed the lens was crooked as if it was stuck. I pulled it out and I heard it click into place, for a second I thought I had broken it. I then turned it on . waited & it remained on, I turned it off and the lens went in and it turned off! It was working again. Good Luck!

It wont turn on, And the zoom is extended.


I had exactly the same problem. Lens stayed open, when powered on you get three beeps and nothing. I found when I pulled the lens out a little harder it gave a little click. When I powered on it worked perfectly.
