Glad to HELP YOU!

If your camera is not accessible that means your DRIVER is missing or is outdated.
To update the driver double-click on MY COMPUTER > PROPERTIES > HARDWARE > DEVICE MANAGER and select your camera (VIDEO DEVICE); right-click on it and in PROPERTIES select UPDATE DRIVER.
If this procedure won't work then you have to get a sort of driver detector to identify and to download the right driver for you. I'd suggest you to download DRIVER MAGICIAN Lite from HERE, to install it and to let it detect your driver.
There's another website where you can run an online check fro your missing driver. It's HERE and choose the middle option (IDENTIFY YOUR DRIVER).
Also I'd suggest you (if nothing from above will NOT WORK!) to check the electric connections to your webcam. But this procedure involves to open your Notebook.

My best wishes!

How do I access the SD card after I insert it?


Your camera should access your SD card as soon as you insert it. You can plug your camera into your computer and access the card through the camera, or you can get an SD reader and connect that to your computer. Pull the SD out of the camera and put it into the card reader, and your compute will have access to the card.

How do i access the film compartment


Most digital cameras have access doors - behind which can be found: the battery, audio / video jacks, memory cards, USB jacks and more. Depending on the particular brand and model of your camera, you may have one or more such access doors. Digital cameras use memory to store images on - as opposed to film. Most digital cameras have a small amount of non-removable internal memory and a removable memory card. The card may be in one of several different formats, the newer being SD or SDHC. Older styles include CF types. There are others, too.

Without knowing the brand and model camera you have, I can't tell you exactly where to look for the memory card, except that it is likely behind one of the these access doors on the camera body. Though not very common, your camera may also be the type that has no removable memory.

Please reply by providing the brand and model info of your camera.

When i try to turn my camera on it flashes a small red light and then it won't turn on, how do i fix this?


Hi,

The Red indicator flashing in the Camera may be the Access Lamp or the Power Lamp. The Access Lamp is located below the Control buttons and the Power Lamp near to the power button. If the Access Lamp is flashing, it indicates that the Camera is accessing the Memory. Do not remove the Memory Stick or Batter while the Access Lamp is lit.

If the Power Lamp is flashing, it indicates that the Camera is turned on. If the Lamp is lit in Red it shows that the Battery is not having enough charge. Insert new batteries or charged Nickel-Metal Hydride batteries to resolve the issue.

You may also try power resetting the Camera. To power reset the Camera, remove the batteries from the Camera and then press and hold the POWER BUTTON of the Camera for 15 seconds and then reinsert the batteries after 1 minute and check if the Camera works normally. If the issue persists, service may be required.

Thanks

When I try to start the camera its saying just access and turns off


One person with your problem, frustrated with no help from Sony, fixed the problem and posted the video on You Tube. He started his camera, "access" appeared on the screen, he set the camera down, and ran over it with an SVU. The "access" was gone from the screen!

The sony dscw100


I have the same problem on my Sony DSC N2
The camera keeps saying access on the screen, and I cannot interchange between movie, camera or review photos choices.
Actually, I cannot do anything at all with any settings. Like you, when the camera is on, access only appears.
What should I do?

Having a prolem accessing a Hawking wireless camera from the internet.


Also In order to connect to your camera you may need to get access from your computer. I would ask a friend to send a signal from there computer to your computer and see what happens on your end. That may solve your problem.

Hope This Helps
