Hello

Thank you for using FIXYA!!!

This is a suggestion. If you do not feel comfortable trying it, you will need to take the unit to your nearest service centre. Feel free to let me know if you need any assistance.

The problem might be that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair centre for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

You can also have a look at THIS link.

Hope the advise is useful. please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance. Also, please be so kind to let me know if you found this helpful.

Regards
Andrea

When the camera is turned on , the zoom tries to adjust twice while the displays says" access" then it Says" Turn the power offand on again" Following the instruction does not solve the problem, we can see...


Hi,
The error "Turn off the power and on again" shows when the zoom motor start malfunction, If you want to repair by yourself and have experience then change the optical zoom motor it will reduce your cost. Otherwise you can change complete lens block assembly, both part and description is given below for your help and convenience:

Part No. Description
1-788-363-11 OPTICS UNIT (ED13A) (complete lens block assy)

2-673-648-01 ZOOM MOTOR UNIT

You can contact any expert or Sony Service Center to change the above said part and your camera work fine again.
Thanks for using fixya.

My camera had a similar prob. Instead of pressing the shutter button half way just press it all the way down and see if that works.
