Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-S40 Digital Camera
Fresh Batteries, clean memory stick, power on, camera lense cover opens, camera starts making a noise, lense never extends from its base (sounds like it is trying :) ) After appx 10 secs the noise stops and an error type message displays on the screen - gives a few system beeps and flashes the message C:13:10 while displaying but not flashing "turn the power off and on again", on a black background. I do this, but it is an infinite loop. The only way I can turn it on without getting this message is when i am usb'd to the laptop. The last "known" activity was copying a file from the laptop to the camera using it like a flash drive. (dont ask me what i was thinking). None of the kids will admit to dropping it, etc, and there are no smash marks. UGH, I need helppppp. Is there anybody out there?
Lens jams can happen without dropping the camera. The lens motor is bad, or a grain of sand has got stuck in one of the lens cogs. Either way will need lens repair/replacement.
