RE: Cyber-shot DSC-S40
When I turn the camera on in the shoot mode I get a whirring noise like a motor running. Screen says "ACCESS" After a while the noise stops and the screen reads "Turn the power off and on again." Same thing happens when turning on in view mode although sometimes the noise isn't there and I can see the pics on the stick.
Sounds like a motor for the lens or something. Can I open up the camera myself and see what's up?
Your lens is possibly damaged or seriously out
of alignment - replacing lens is easier , than
opening the camera ( hard to believe how many
tiny screws etc . are in the way ) plus if you
do open it . . . ? few technicians will work on
it , after .

I assume so...mine is doing it as well. Even weirder is you hold a combo of buttons (i think power and mic, I dont remember exactly) and you can go into this manufacturers menu for setting up and testing the device. In that, it will take pictures and everything...and still i cannot get it to stop shutting off like that. It makes a weird clicking noise when it shuts off too...sounds like the shutter perhaps. Click click. If you find a solution to it please email me at [email protected]
The lens assy. has gone bad if it is making noise.
If it is only stuck and not moving the power supply link is broken and supply is not reaching the lens assy motor.
May be the SMD fuse would have blown in power supply circuit.
May be you can seek the service manual from me and this calls for highly skilled workmanship and tools.
I wouldn't worry about thst 61:20 problem ( a lens problem I think) unless it is affecting your picture taking, I have the same thing on my Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-S40 camera and I find my little camera still takes beautiful photos with no problems, although when I turn my camera on itmakes some noise and access comes on the screen.
