Usually a lens problem. 95 percent of the time it has suffered a knock or has grit/sand in the lens. will need to go in for service. Does the lens move out at all?

Zoom problem The camera I have don't allow the zoom to come out, when I turn camera on it says "zoom error" and then I can't do nothing on camera,not even look at pics I have taken. It does it alot, sometimes the camera will turn on without saying it,but it's very rare. And sometimes I can turn it on and it will say "zoom error" but if I press zoom in the camera will work. But it's very rare that it works. I love the camera and hope there is a solution.

Hi, I own a Sony Cybershot camera, and it has been giving a few problems as of this week. The lens keep re-adjusting in and out when I turn the camera on to take pictures. It however responds just fine when in picture-view mode. There is a screen prompt that says 'Access' when the camera is turned on, as well as the message 'turn off camera and start again'. I do not think that the camera had fallen at any time, and it is just under a year old. Thanks a lot for your response, Sarah.
