Why isnt my camera turning off?

Asked by mirza (5042points) September 2nd, 2007

I have a Sony Cybershot DSC-W100. The problem started a few days ago when i camera would turn on all of asudden automaticially. Now when i turn off my camera, it burns back on for no reasona t all. The only way to turn it off is to remove the battery. Any idea why this is happening?

did you set an auto timer by any chance?

this happened to my sony cybershot just before it died. i think something (perhaps a grain of sand? a broken chip of an internal part?) got lodged in the lens mechanism…. it wouldn’t close (or it would partly close, then re-open), wouldn’t open, was acting weird. it didn’t turn on by itself though.
