Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

I have a Sony Cybershot DSC-T300, the lense cover will not open automatically. Is there a way to operate it manually?

Answers :


If the curtain does not open electrically, then the part is stuck. The only way to operate it or rpair it is by disassemblying the final part of the lens, held together by a ring.

Call Sony at the number listed in the user manual to validate your warranty or get a quote from a third party service here:Repair.
