When I select 'right' or 'down' on the macro button the camera powers off. I am also getting 'access' when i turn the camera on. Is this a loose connection? The power on the battery also runs flat now even when the camera is shut off? Does anyone have any ideas on what i can do?

I have a Sony W120 and had the same macro problem, tried all the
"solutions" mentioned here without result. So I pressed the "Home"
button, went to "Settings" (last menu item at right), then "Main
Settings", and used the "Initialize" functio. Problem solved !
Press the macro button once to get it to display the Macro Mode sign. Press and hold it after that to get it into Super Macro
Once you are in Super Macro, you can't move the lens so you MUST use the Manual Focus (MF) button that is located right above the Macro toggle button. While holding the MF button, use the 4 way directional pad to focus in and out. Press the Up and Down to focus. You have to be REALLY close for Super mode.. less than about 6 inches
The MACRO MODE is easily accessed via the arrow pad on the back of the camera. Press the left arrow key, which has a flower icon, to start the MACRO MODE. Press the down arrow key to select the flower icon in the menu. Then press the OK/MENU button; camera is now set for close-up photography. Remember to turn off the MACRO MODE when you begin shooting subjects beyond the focus range of the MACRO MODE.
The Macro Mode is easily accessed by pressing the second oval shaped button to the left of the arrow pad on the back of the camera. This button is designated by a green colored box with a curved doubled headed arrow – which will rotate the image file when in view mode. The same button also has a flower icon, which represents MACRO MODE when in Shooting mode. Pressing thios button in Shooting Mode displays a menu where you select three options: OFF, Close-Up or Super Close-Up photography.
The functions accessed from the arrow pad—Self-Timer (arrow left key), Exposure Compensation for adjusting brightness (up arrow key), Macro and Super Macro Modes for close-up photos (right arrow key)—will all be reset using the RESET arrow pad button. Also, the quality/resolution will be set back to the default of HQ. Settings such as language, date and time, and sleep time settings are not changed by using the reset button. These settings need to be manually selected through the menus in order to reset or change them.
