Purchased DSC-W5 14 months ago Camera has worked fine. Took 10-15 shots of our older kids this evening. Turned camera off handed it to my wife. She turned the selector to review the photos - turned camera - reviewed images just fine - then switched mode to take some shots of our 3 month old .. and the camera shut off. Replaced batteries - camera comes on - Cyber Shot splash screen appears - then goes out. Turned selector back to review mode - turned on camera - Cyber Shot splash screen appears, "accessing" appears - images can be viewed. Menu can be accessed and setting can be checked and changed - but once camera is changed to one of the many "photo/video" taking modes - camera shuts off. Images can be accessed and downloaded to PC with no problem via USB.

Just my luck extended warranty expired a month ago.

Any suggestions would be grateful.

Additional info to below - when camera is turned on in a image taking mode - cyber shot splash screen appears, "acess" appears, Lens extends - THEN the camera shuts off with lens extended. When turning back on in review mode - then len retracts and images can be viewed.

Any cure for the message: "Turn the power off and on again" when the camera is turned on; and when turned off, the lens will not retract?

I'm interested in this problem too... My camera (same model) did the same thing after about the same time. Just died on me at the end of our honeymoon... I could get it to take a pic every now and then if I pointed the lens straight down. Tried swapping batteries AND memory stick... nothing. I think it's just junk... last Sony camera I'm going to buy. I had a Nikon that lasted 6 or 7 years, with only one burnt pixel, got the Sony, and it was toast after a little after a year.
