Having problems with your Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-S40 Digital Camera ?

I have a sony DSC-W170. It was dropped and now

\015 I have a sony DSC-W170. It was dropped and now the lense will not shut. I tried to turn it off and back on. When I turned it back on it keeps telling me to turn the camera off and then turn it back on. The image is very blurry. The camera will not take any pictures.\015

Answers :

I had exactly the same problem with my Sony Cyber_Shot. Here is what I did and the problem was fixed. I cleaned around the lense. While I turned the camera off, I pressed down the lense very softly (some up and down motion). After a couple of times, the lense retracted almost completely. Then I pressed a little harder until the lense retracted 100% as normal times. I turned it on everything was back to normal. If the lense does not have mechanical problem, you should be able to do what I did.
If there is no mechanical problem, most likly some dirt got on the sides of the lense while it was open. Try keep it very clean always.

Good luck;

My Sony DSC-T200 also vibrates periodically. I've never dropped it, and 90% of the time, its functioning just fine, but once in a while (usually for the duration of a whole event that I'd like to take pictures at), it vibrates very much like a cell phone with ringer set on vibrate. It seems to be the autofocus lense since the focus of the picture is also oscillating with the vibration. Is there a tooth on a gear broken or something? Is this camera prone to this? Should I avoid Sony DSC cameras i

I need some help to repair my Sony Cybershot DSC W50 camera. When you turn the camera on, it displays 'Access' for about 30 seconds, during which time the lens zooms in and out. Then it says 'Turn the power off and on again'. Nothing has happened to the camera - it has not been dropped and this fault just suddenly started. What can I do about this? I have had it just over a year. I’d be really grateful for any support! Thank you! Clare
