    The protective cover is either half closed and half open. When it's right side up, the upper cover is down; when it's upside down, the lower cover is down. It doesn't shut close or open all the way.

If you open up your casing you will find that almost dead center on the front PCB, just to the right of the battery at the top of the empty battery area there is a box. possibly with some plastic fragment that is broken off. if you touch inside this box w/ something conductive it will think the lens is open. You can either fix this area or permanently solder it so it thinks it is always open. You can still turn it off using the button on the side of the camera

Hi I have the same problem as a lot of other people with the lens sticking open and the screen saying turn power on and off, with a DSC W150. But mine doesn't sound like it is even trying to open or...

There is probably moisture in the lens assembly. This can prevent the mechanical gears, Iris and lens retractor from functioning. Store the camera in a dry environment for at least 24 hours and try again.

The lens cover does not open all the way. I have to use my fingernail to do it.

It is either bent or has grit and dirt in between the slides. Try using canned compressed air, such as you use to clean a computer keyboard with, to blow air between the slides. If that does not work, even though you will have to be very careful, while the lens cover is closed put a single drop of WD40 on the cover and spread it with a Qtip over the entire cover surface. Holding the camera, front facing down, try turning it on and off several times. If that frees the lens cover, turn the camera off and wipe the surface of the closed lens cover with a soft tissue to clean the WD40 from the surface. Make sure then that your lens is clean before using the camera. If the lens cover is bent, then none of this will work.

L 100 digital camera is not switching on though the battery is fully charged.

Try removing the battery for a couple of seconds then insert it again. Click on the power button, it should turn on and turn it off again to close the lens.

Camera doesn't recognize lens cover...

I rednecked the crap out of mine. I pulled off the slide cover and placed a small piece of paper clip in the area of the copper to make a permanent contact. Then duct taped it secure and then cover the whole slide mechanism. I would not recommend this method but it worked.

Lens Cover Closed

the switch inside that activates the camera is probably loose, or worse, broken.
