Having problems with your Sony Cyber-shot DSC-N1 Digital Camera ?

Sony Cyber-Shot Lens!

\015 I went to the beach last weekend with my friend and her dad. I asked my friend's dad to take a few pictures of us and when he finished taking them he put my camera back in my beach bag. Little did i know, there was a small amount of sand collecting in the bottom. Well i turned the camera on and the lens acted funny. It came out then went back in. I turned it off and on repeatedly and now it works fine. The only problem is that when i zoom in and out, it takes longer than normal and it makes a weird sound. If you could help me fix this, i would greatly appreciate it.\015\012Sincerely, Chelsea\015

Answers :

I really don't know a lot about this stuff..but if I were you I'd go and have it professionally cleaned right away. You don't want sand in their messing up the camera.
