Answers :

I have investigated my problem further and basically the teeth on the black cog which opens the lens cover have broken. This a very small component which attaches to the motor, so when you hear the motor, or if you have had grinding noises, it is the mechanism trying to operate the shutter but cannot beacuse the teath won't engage. If you have this probelm all the turning on and off again wont solve the issue. You might be lucky if only one of the teeth have broken but you are only postponing the inevitable which will happen when you least want it to. I have aChristening at the weekend and only hope I can get this sorted by then.
\015\012I will need a new shutter mechanism ( don't know the technical terms) but as yet I have to investigate where I can get one. Any suggestions anyone??

On my Sony Cybershot DSC-P8 camera, the shutter will not operate when I press the shutter button to take a picture. Everything else seems to be working. This happened all of a sudden.

This happens even after I push the reset button, take the battery in & out and the memory stick in & out. I have not had any problems with this camera until now.

DSC P51 Trying to decide whether my camera is suffering from the defective CCD imager problem. I currently have a black image at all times, as if the shutter is closed. I removed the MS and reset the camera which didn't affect anything. On the Sony site it says to take a movie clip with sound then replay it. When I did that, it didn't replay the image and I heard no sound either. Does hearing no sound still constitute a prob with the CCD imager?
