Sony DSC W30 digital camera, lens unit problem

\015 Hello.Several days ago my digital camera, which is a Sony DSC W30, fell down to the floor while it was photographing The lens unit was damaged in a way that it could not turn back to its regular position. Eben when I tuned power on, no message appeared on the screen, it was totally dark, and the lens unit was just dislocated and could not move.I bought another lens unit from eBay which is claimed to be compatible with Sony DSC W30, W35, W50, W55, W70. After changing the damaged lens unit with the new one, when I turn on the digital camera, the lens normally comes out then, after about a second, it goes back to its off position, and a message appears on the LCD screen that I should turn the power off and on again. But it does not help. I am very grateful if you help me to solve the problem.Davoud\015

Hi!
If you're sure you didn't damage the lens flat cable which connect to the motherboard, the focus of the lens unit you bought on ebay doesn't work. You can simply replace the back part (with focus) of the new lens unit with your old one. It requires soldering.

Hi welcomejee, I read all your solutions regarding the digital camera Sony DSC N2. I really have to thank you for your precious Some of the problems are very similar to mine: After the camera fell on the ground from about 2 meters in off mode the lens would come out and immediately back in 4 times in a row. After that the lens is back in, a beeping sound comes up and on the display it is written to "Turn the power off and on again". Of course that does not help at all. The lens is opening


George, this is most likely a lens issue, and more precisely, probably a stripped gear when it fell. You will have to disassemble the entire unit to get at the lens assembly, and will probably be a professional by the time you get through! ... Digital Cameras
