\015\012Ok, it indeed sounds as if your camera has developed a spontaneous fault. You seem to have done all the correct things. The only other thing is to possibly try a brand new freshly charged battery. but I doubt that it will change matters, but it is worth a try. Please find above, Service manuals, (I could only find pay for links sorry) One simply cannot do anything technical without one, the top link, is the Sony support center.\015\012
\015\012\015\012It is nearly always my professional opinion that one should always get a "Quote" from the manufacturers recommended service center, I cannot stress how important that last point is. It is even worth the cost of shipping. you see an authorised service agent, will have trained staff, trained on their brand, also they have first hand access to parts, original parts. This will actually save you money and ensure you can actually get it back fixed. Of course asking for a "Quote" also gives on the option of repair or replace. Often my clients,do not go through with repair, unless it is moderate, but in some of the more costly jobs they see it, as do i, that a replacement, with a warranty, is a better option. As an aside here, one could then tear the TV down, and sell the Known Good bits. You'd be surprised who needs parts, i myself often must by from third party sources to effect a repair. So money could be recouped, somewhat,and help out someone else. Also then one can make an informed decision as to repair or replace.\015\012
\015\012This is most likely caused by the lens gears possibly broken or stuck, there might be sand or dust or similar that might have gotten inside, another common thing is if the camera was dropped this happens.\015\012
\015\012there may be other issues involved but thats as much as I can say over the internet. \015\012
\015\012To solve the issue the camera needs to be taken apart, as this is a high end camera, you don't want to ruin it by attempting to fix it yourself, I would recommend that you take this in to a repairer.

When I turn on my camera, all I see on my screen is a blank white screen with two large black blobs running from upper left to lower right. The same screen appears when I try to preview past shots. My menu won't work either. Any clues as to what's wrong? I carried my camera in my right back pocket before this happened and I may have sat on the screen without knowing it. Is there any way to find out if my camera is still workable? Thanks. Bob Jenks [email protected] 561.694.8326

Power/lens Problems I'm having some power/lens problems with my camera. When I turn on the power in either the picture or video mode, the green light will turn on for a split second then turn off. The lens does not come out at all. However, when I try to turn it on with the picture viewer or in the menu it works just fine. When I start with the picture viewer and then switch to the camera it turns off. Thus it seems that whenever I want to take a picture or a movie the camera doesn't work.

It seems that the lense movement is jammed. Have you dropped the camera? just have a close look from the front side of the camera, does the lense assembly seems to be pressed or moved aside by some extra preassure? if no physical disalingment is vi ... Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-P72 Digital Camera

I have bought this camera about one and half years ago. The camera worked for about alittle more than a year and it did work well. I have charged the battery to full a charge. The camera turns on but when you try and change anything with the camera it stays in this one mode. I try and cancel pictures from memory and it will not let me go there. I have tried all different modes and it will not move.

Zoom error I turned my F470 camera on and received a "zoom error" bar across the screen. The lense does not move outwards after I turn the power on, nor does the plastic sliding screen close when I turn the camera off. The lense is exposed whether or not the camera is on or off. The lense does not make any sounds when I turn the camera on, but I hear (what I think) are the gears when I turn the camera off. When the camera is on, the screen is working, but the image is blurry. I tried other poste

I cannot turn the flash back on. When I push on the lightning bolt button nothing happens, the display shows the flash turned off. Is something wrong with the camera.

I tried all the other modes and was able to use in in C1 but then I was messing around with that and now won't work in that either. Thank you for your help.
