There is a problem with the lens already and it might need replacement. chances are the price of a lens is almost equivalent to a new camera.. just buy a new one.

My camera will not turn on when I slide the lens cover switch and will not charge when plugged in.


When the battery is empty, you can't switch on the camera. Why does it not charge?
Could be the switch behind the lens cover does not work correct or not at all. Could be the power cord is not ok. Or the socket where the cord goes into the camera.
Can you try to charge the camera on an external charger and when it is charged, try switching on again.

My sister had the same problem and I was trying to figure out what it was so I googled it and someone suggested to take the camera and hit it (not very hard) with the lens side down on a table.....This may sound completely crazy but I tried it and it made a weird sound so I turned it off then on again and it worked!! Hope it works!

I had the same problem with my DSC-W55. I actually just called the customer service number on the sony website and they told me how to solve the problem.

- Take your battery out
- Press and hold the power button for 60 seconds
- Re enter your battery
- Voila.. it should work when you turn it on. Mine did.

easy! charge the battery.With power off,whack the base of the camera against the palm of your hand four or five times.wait five minutes,turn camera on and whack the side of the camera nearest the lens against the palm of your hand.then whack the base again and the lens should pop out.Worked for me!!!

I also spent some time fixing this error. the reboot thing as suggested in the manual did not work! Then I smacked it gently on the metal part of the camera, then again more strongly. Suddenly it started to work! Never thought of that way repairing the camera from HP... Try it but not break it!
