Turn the power off and on again message
When i turn on the camera, the lens focusing two or three times open and close, then the message comes "TURN THE POWER OFF AND ON AGAIN" in the display.
balaji, this message most commonly appears when the lens does not fully retract or opens.
"Lens won't fully extend ¶
Screen shows Turn off and on again. ¶
Turn off the camera, remove the batteries from the camera and wait a few minutes. Replace the batteries and turn the camera on.
If the lens will still not extend, replace the batteries and turn the camera on.
If the lens will still not extend, check to see if there is any particles in the lens barrel. Blow air in the lens barrel to remove any sand or grit that may be preventing the lens from extending completely." I've had some good result by using a vacuum cleaner to assist the lend to extend and to clean it out. There is also more generic information about that on here. You will find a decent video (not exactly your model, but same problem), on youtube Hope this helps, good luck.
I couldn't believe it; it worked on the third try. It didn't open at once but after leaving it on for a few seconds more than usual, it suddenly started working again. I had tried putting a piece of paper in between the shutters to dislodge anything too, an idea I got from the provided link.
i have sony w810 camera showing mesg on screen turn off and on again now what i do?
Excellent Thanks! Changed battery and used a high powered vacuum cleaner. So far so good!
excellent advise used the vacuum cleaner to clear sand then used a baby wipe to clean and lubricate
1. Throw the camera on a carpeted floor.
2. Blow on the lens.
3. Switch on the camera.
This is what I did when it said "Turn the power off and on again." It works fine now
"Shock to the System" approach works! Start off with minimal velocity, increase as necessary until problem is solved (or camera shatters).
Thank you! Try to air flush dust as advice above .Same error "Turn off then on..."
Then i did your way .throw the camara on carpeted floor....Ta-da!! It works...
Really don't know what to say...but thanks for this method....It works for me...I just keep laugh now...Crazy...
i can't believe it it worked! thanks
Totally worked!! HAHAHA! I couldn't believe it. I had been trying to pry that lens open gently but it kept giving the error message. I don't have soft carpet at my work so I just threw the camera fairly hard onto my padded office chair. TADAAA! It worked! Thanks a bunch.
btw, I have the Sony Cyber-shot 10.1 mega pixel DSC-W180.
I was at my last straws and did this . Worked for me.
What! No f'ing way! I threw it on my couch boom! Battery pops out. I pop it back in, turn it on! Done! Fyi. I have a very soft couch!
