I have a Sony DSC-W370 and the outermost glass lens has been scratched (by a piece of sand, I think). It's ruining every shot I take, really, but everything else on the camera works fine. I can't seem to find a replacement part and I wouldn't know how to fix it even if I had a spare. How would I take it apart, for example? What I'm wondering is whether it would be possible to have this outside piece of glass polished and if I do would it ruin the image? I was thinking of taking it to an e


You cannot replace the lens assembly. This must be done by a Sony repair service center. You cannot "polish" the lens without completely ruining it. Replacement is going to be expensive. Get an estimate and then decide if it's worth it. ... Sony Cybershot DSCW370 Digital Camera

Hello typrice, at the second paraghrap you said: "Or the battery ran down with the lens extended." as a possible cause. I'm quite sure this is what happend with my camera (is a FE-340 model) so I tryed all the fixes 1 to 4, because I don't think it is a blocking problem of the lens. The simtom is just as discribed (lens go out and in 3 times, then turn off). I still can't fix the problem, there is any way to restart the software?? I find it should be simple to fix but still have no success... PL

Lens Error. Hi. I dropped my camera on the 30th of December last year, while taking pictures of Christmas lights. This happened, when I was being stupid, because I didn't put my wrist ********. It slipped right out of my hands and fell lens down on the concrete while it was on. I picked it up and it said: lens error. When I turn it in, the lens will go out as normal, but the message will appear and it will turn off. The shutter only closes halfway. I think it is jammed. Is there anyway to fix th

Dropped my Olympus FE 3010 and unsurprisingly it's not working.... Everytime I turn the camera on, the lens extends halfway, then stops. The camera beeps at me, the green LED turns orange and the camera becomes unresponsive until I remove the battery (including the Power button). Any ideas on how/if this can be fixed? I think getting professional repairs will cost more than the camera did...

My SD850is was dropped,there is a slight split on the bottom (looks like 2 screws are missing). When you turn the camera on, it says "lens error - restart camera" and then shuts off. It does show the opening picture on the LCD but then turns dark and shuts off. I've had the camera for about 2 yrs. Anything I can fix or is it worth the price of repair which would cost approx. how much?


From searching the internet, it sounds like the lens needs to be replaced and the cost of the repair would be about as much as buying a new camera.  thanks for responding.  now i have to go thru "what to buy" again....... ... Canon Digital Cameras

For Christmas this year, a friend gave me a Kodak EasyShare M753 7 mp 3x optical zoom. I have the use of only hand and I dropped the camera on my desk(about 1-2 feet). One side of the lens jammed and would not release and would not take pictures. I kept fooling with it and the black bars in the lens came out. I would think it needs a new lens. Could you tell me how I would go about getting it fixed and the approximate time and cost would this involve.

I had my nikon coolpix s210 in my bag and I bumped against a wall, not that hard it seemed. I checked my camera and everything seemed fine but once I turned it on a big crack appeared on the screen. Is it worth the fix or should I just buy a new one? I checked the camera shortly before I placed it in my bag so I don't think the break came before the incident. But I'm heart broken and desperate for my camera. Please help if possible. Thank you.


I will buy from you. ... Nikon Coolpix S210 Digital Camera

My lens is stuck and it will not extend when I turn on the camera resulting in a lens error. It automatically shuts down. Before it came to this state it was fixated at an angle extended on one side and pushed back on the other. I push the other side down in an attempt to fix it, but I think I may have made it worse. Any help would be nice. Thank you.
