Answers :

It sounds like maybe your lens is jammed. You may want to try and fix it yourself. If you want to repair it yourself there is a guy in South Carolina who has lots of parts for all the Sony Cameras. I bought my LCD from him for $39.00 plus shipping and it works perfect. I put it in myself and saved a ton. If you buy the part from him he sends you pictures of him taking the camera apart so that you can repeat the process when you install it. I think his email is [email protected]

I dropped my camera while it was on and the lens was extended. And I dropped it right on the lens. And now when I turn the camra off, the lens does not go back inside the camera. Everything else is fine, I can see the picture perfectly. It's just the lens that won't go back inside. How can I fix this myself without buying a new camera, or having to pay someone to fix it?
