Sony Cybershot DSC-W50 shutter will not open

After a return from the beach we noticed that the shutter will not open. The message reads "turn the power of and on again".
Can you suggest any remedies?

    I am having the same problem. It is saying "Turn the power off and on again." It was working fine, then all of a sudden it stopped taking photos. Now I can only view the photos I have, but cannot take new ones.

    My W50 had gone through several of these conditions. A year ago it was sunken to a pond in a trip to Cheng-Du city, China. I finally managed to find it under the water after about ten minutes under water. I disassembled the whole camara and luckly it served me another year or so.

    Recently this old in-and-out sympton went back. Now the motor stop spinning completly. Just as one of your case: now I can only view the pictures. Cleaning really kills the circuit? (Yes. this time I also disasembled the focusing ring; taking off the blades from the miniature motor responsible for focusing and lens capping.

I have a Sony DSC-W50 Cybershot camera that won't take pictures or videos anymore. It powers up fine and the screen works, but when I hold down the shutter button all the way, it focuses and nothing more.

Cybershot dsc-w50 records movies instead of pictures


I had the same problem with my camera.  I found that changing the mode from Multi Burst to Normal allows the camera to take normal pictures.  Go to Menu and scroll over to Mode, then select Normal.

This is what sony cameras do when the lens has become jammed. There are multiple different reasons that the lens can jam but the result is the camera being unable to move it as expected and presenting that error message. Sometimes the lens can be manipulated gently (if extended at all) and freed from the jammed state. Failing this, disassembly is required. Check with your manufacturer for warranty service status and recalls. If they will not cover it you can find a repair provider online. David Millier Advance Camera Repair
