Got sand in my sony cybeshot DSC-W55

\015 Trying to find an answer to this. My son got sand in the camera and the lens starts to open and then shuts and the camera says to turn it on an off. Anyway I ca open it up to spray compressed air to try and fix this?\015

Answers :

It sounds as if the sand is jamming the lens/shutter mechanism.

I would be very cautious about using compressed air to try and solve the problem. You could well end up just blowing the sand further into the camera and causing more serious problems.

I would recommend taking it to a professional, but if you do want to dive-in yourself, I would do the following:

If possible, try and brush any grains of sand away.

Avoid using compressed air - Use a proper camera blower instead.

Avoid touching the sensor!
