Re: camera won't turn ON

First off, everything was not fine until this morning. You had this occur a month ago. Frankly, I would have done exactly as you did a month ago and nothing more. I have seen too many electrical problems permanently solved by turning a device off and then on, or by rebooting. Here is what I would generally recommend: 1. See what the camera manual suggests. 2. Charge the batteries fully before using them. New ones are often not charged up. They could have been in a warehouse for months. 3. The electrical contacts on your camera, the ones that interface with the batteries, may be a little corroded. If you can access them easily, try cleaning them with the eraser on the end of a pencil. Same with the batteries themselves. 4. If exposed to prolonged high humidity, electrical problems may include not only the power supply, but other electrical switches, such as the reset button., which you cannot address on your own. 5. Call Sony.

When I power on the lense cover only partially opens and will not close when I turn the camera off. Sony DSC-P52


The problem could be from simple dust accumulation to a camera drop. If you take it to the service center, it would be an easy fix, and won't cost you much.

Take a picture with the camera and download it to your computer. If the picture also shows up black, then this sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager. If so, Sony should fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please check the following link for more info:

Sony DSC P52 won't flash Error Code is E:91:01 tried reset already


When you pressed the reset, if it cleared the time and date that button is working. If that did not clear the error it is a hardware fault, meaning that a circuit has failed and parts will have to be replaced.
A local camera store might be able to find the problem but you will have to carefully weigh whether these older camera is worth the cost of repair.
Sorry! I hate giving bad news.
