Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-P92 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Can't take pictures or video

I put fresh batteries in my DSC-P92 and turned it on in picture mode. The green indicator light comes on. However, the lens will not come out and the LCD does not display anything. After about 30 seconds, an error message pops up: Turn the power off and on again.

If I turn it off and turn it back on in preview mode, the LCD comes on and I can see the pictures. Same goes for Set up mode.

Picture / Movie modes do not work though.

I have a cybershot DSC-P72, lens doesnt open anymore, batteries are ok. picture review, and setup work ok.For a while it would open then close straight away, but not anymore.


This camera needs really strong batteries. Even if the batteries work great in other devices they might not work in this camera. Buy some FRESH (yes check the date and get the ones that will expire the latest) Alkaline Batteries and give it a try. Rechargeable (NiCad) batteries never worked for me. This is the very reason I got rid of my P92 (same camera with higher 5.1m pixel optics)

Camara locked up


Be sure you are using the right kind of batteries in the camera. Check to see if the device requires NiMh, Lithium, etc. It's not just about getting AA size. Alkaline will probably not work properly, and could cause device malfunction.

Does the camera turn off or does the screen go black? if the screen goes black but the power lamp stays green then the screen is just turned off (power save mode), If it’s just the screen to turn on the LCD. There are 3 buttons just to the right of the screen, press the center button.

Power/lens Problems


it seems that the lense movement is jammed. Have you dropped the camera? just have a close look from the front side of the camera, does the lense assembly seems to be pressed or moved aside by some extra preassure? if no physical disalingment is visible may be some sand or dust partical is obstructing the movement of the lense assambly. needs a help from camera repair shop.
