Sony DSC-S500 My camera is 10 months old. It's been working perfectly up until today. When I turn it on the lens closes. When I turn it off the lens opens. When I can get the lens to open half way as soon as I push the zoom button it closes. It's kind of like the lens is stuck. I've tried replacing batteries, I wasn't sure what else to do.

I dropped my Sony Cybershot DSC-H50 and now the lens won't come out. It turns on and all but it just tells me to turn it off and on again, and it won't let me look at the menu. the circles in the lens are closed and it's pitch black looking at the screen and I tried pressing the shutter button once I turn it on and it just says to turn it off and on again. Also 2 times this occurred, when I could see with it but everything was still blurry and the lens opened up a little but just those 2 times.

I have a Sony Cybershot DSC W100. I accidentally dropped it and now it says 'Access' and the lens opens and closes three times then beeps and says, 'Turn the power off and on again'. I have done this and it still doesn't work. I tried to initialize the settings - that didn't work either. I even played around with the lens some, and that didn't fix it. If you have any other suggestions please help! I would hate to have to pay $130 bucks to have it fixed.

DSC-W200 Frozen My W200 has the lens open (extended) and will not close. Additionally, when I press the power button or the play button on the back, the LCD lights up and says Sony, but nothing else happens. I've tried connecting it to my macbook, using a fully charged battery, memory card vs no card, etc. Nothing seems to work. If I press the power button a seond time, the green power light goes off, but the LCD still says Sony. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Not too eager to send it
