Having problems with your Sony Cyber-shot DSC-S700 Digital Camera ?

When I turn on my DSC-S700, all I get is the Cyber Shot screen. The lens extends and won't retract until I remove the batteries.

Hello

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel\012 after dropping it. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the \012probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use\012\012\012\012 these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly ,\012 try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the \012shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , \012and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then \012try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently \012pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may \012cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another\012 way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and \012then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to\012 not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and \012down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the \012camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your \012camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of \012your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair \012center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to \012replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest\012 you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any \012off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about\012 warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

Hope \012the advise is useful.

Regards
Andrea

On/Off Switch Hi My problem with the 5050Z is as follows; When I switch the camera on the lens extends and then retracts but not always. This can carry on until I turn it off.

Camera was on, working fine. When powering off, telescoping lens did not retract so lens remained extended just a bit with lens cover open. Waited a few minutes, turned it back on and I get the "access" display message then the beeps and (turn power off and back on) message. While off, I have removed the battery, replacing it with a fully charged spare and it still does this. The lens tries to telescope a little bit and retracts a touch, but I can't get the camera out of this mode. Can it be res

My Canon PowerShot SD850 IS has a lens that is stuck in the extended position. I get a screen that says lens error, restart camera, but when I try to connect to the software, I get a screen on the computer telling me the computer cannot detect the camera. Battery is freshly charged, and I get the little yellow bird picture on the camera when I turn it on. It beeps about 4 times, and then turns off. Is there a safe way to get the lens to retract?


Don't play around with that lens, you can do more damage to the camera and focus with some of the stuff people tell you to try. Your camera just needs to be serviced and you'll be working great again. The shop that specializes in service for the powe ... Canon PowerShot SD850 IS Digital Camera

Lens stuck I had been turning my Sony Cyber-shot DSC W50 off and on a few times, when suddenly as I went to turn it off, the lens got stuck and couldn't retract--just made this horrible mechanical noise like it was trying to do so but something was awry. Then this message comes up on the screen "Turn the power off and on again." I do as asked. Nothing. I take the (fully charged) battery out and see if that does the trick. Nope. No matter what I do, the lens will not retract, regardless of how ma

My Pentax Optio S10 digital camera is giving me problems. Initially the lens would not extend fully and would then immediately retract and the camera would then turn itself off.
