Sony Cybershot DSC-W55 Digital Camera When taking pictures on any setting it records

Posted on Jan 18, 2009

A family member had the same problem with the exact same model. She called Sony and after a lot of hassling, convinced them to take it back and repair it. However the problem re-occurred after another few weeks of use. If you do a Google search on that model you will find similar stories about glitches and bugs. I bought her a Cannon for her birthday. Not a great solution but I think you should look into a new unit. Make sure to recycle the old camera at a facility that takes e-waste. Please comment on this thread if you feel the need to.
Take Care,

I have a cybershot DSC W55. When the power button is switched on the lens extends and the "access" message shown on screen. Also amber light is flashing above screen. After a few seconds I get a message to power on and off again. I\'ve tried switching on and off a few times, removing battery pack and memory card, but nothing seems to be solving the problem.

When turning camera on, lens opens and closes , then it says turn the power off and on again


The problem is that the lens is jammed.
Here's what I did: I smacked the side of the camera on a tile floor a few times, until the lens started trying to open. Then I used a knife to pry up the lens a little. Believe it or not, it is now taking pictures. You can't imagine how excited I was to get it working.

If this sounds like a joke (it did to me), I got the idea from these forums:

Good luck!
