Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W35 Digital Camera
Hi, I cant power off my DSC-W35. Every time I use the power button to power off, 3 lamps keep flashing 1) power lamp 2) flash charging lamp 3) access lamp near the battery pack To switch off I have to go through a complex procedure 1) press the power switch 2) press display (the camera comes on at this point) 3) press display once or twice again (the lens extends outward and shutter opens) 4) press the power switch to switch off 5) press the display switch again all the lamps mentioned above do not flicker if i do this. Otherwise my battery gets discharged pretty soon. There is no warranty on my camera. Rather than getting it repaired, I would pick up a brand new one. Sony manuals do not give the procedure for power on and off the camera (which is funny). Someone please help. Regards, montievv
Lights flashing like that usually means something is wrong in the shut-down procedure. my guess (and is quite common ) is that the lens doesnt retrack all the way hitting a clitched gear spline or something, maybe just weak motor,....as your retry it it settles in proper and tells the micro its ok now to shut down. good luck

The Red indicator flashing in the Camera may be the Access Lamp or the Power Lamp. The Access Lamp is located below the Control buttons and the Power Lamp near to the power button. If the Access Lamp is flashing, it indicates that the Camera is accessing the Memory. Do not remove the Memory Stick or Batter while the Access Lamp is lit.
If the Power Lamp is flashing, it indicates that the Camera is turned on. If the Lamp is lit in Red it shows that the Battery is not having enough charge. Insert new batteries or charged Nickel-Metal Hydride batteries to resolve the issue.
You may also try power resetting the Camera. To power reset the Camera, remove the batteries from the Camera and then press and hold the POWER BUTTON of the Camera for 15 seconds and then reinsert the batteries after 1 minute and check if the Camera works normally. If the issue persists, service may be required.
