Hey!

Well, it won't be the first time I'm giving this "magic trick" for Sony's cameras... It's really not official, and quite definitely unprofessional - but seems to be working over and over again.

With that said, the solution will be to hit it a little, but not in a very aggressive way!
Just to ease your mind a bit - quotes from a forum thread I've found:

  • I had the exact same problem, beat it against my palm for about a minute, hittinng various sides many times while the camera was powered on with thw error message. I then tunred it off and back on, AND IT WORKED! unbelievable.
  • Amazing! This has been stuck for weeks and now works! I don't have carpet, but banged it on my bare hand and VOILA! Instant success. YOU GUYS ROCK! I was about to send it in on warranty and now am SAVED.

So, before you reject this "method" - give it a try! If your warranty time is over, you've got nothing to lose...

In case of a problem or clarification or my solution was insufficient, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

Good luck & best regards,
Pelu.

Hi,

Change the batteries go with rechargeable, high-capacity NiMH batteries for regular shooting, but in case of an emergency you always carry a spare set of hybrid NiMH or disposable lithium batteries with you, in case the rechargeable poop out in the middle of a shooting session. For other batteries the life is short in camera.Follow the tips to increase the battery life:
Do not use continuous focus when not necessary.
Minimize photo previewing.
Turn off LCD, when not in use.

Clean the metal contacts of the battery holder properly with dry cloth and then insert the new battery and check you are getting power to the camera.
If you still face the problem, then inner conductivity is lost between battery terminals and circuit board. You need to take to service center to get it repaired.

Hope this helps.

Shane

I'm sorry that the Camera is displaying the error message. "TURN THE POWER OFF AND ON AGAIN" displays on the LCD screen when the Lens Mechanism is stuck or when affected by any malfunction. If turning the power on and off again does not resolve the error message, try doing a power reset. Please follow the below steps to perform a power reset.





· Turn off the camera.

· Remove the battery pack.

· Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds.

· Allow the camera to remain without power for 60 seconds.

· Reinsert the battery pack.

· Turn on the camera.




Also tryinitializing the Cameraif you're able to access the Menu items on the Camera. The Initialize option will be available under Setup or Main settingsSub Menus.

If the issue persists again, service is required. Please click hear to locate the service center near your area.

Thanks for understanding. Please let me know if your require any clarifications.

On the Sony DSC-H7 camera can you disable the auto power off? If not does the use of an external power supply disable it? Thanks


The auto power off function that operates if the camera is not used for about 3 minutes, when operating on battery power, cannot be deactivated.

When using the camera the camera powered from the Sony AC-LS5 AC mains adapter, or with the Sony DCC-L1, DC power adapter, the camera auto power function is deactivated whilst the camera is connected to the power supply.
