Lens will not retract completly on sony cyber shot DSC-W55 after being dropped while lens extended


Answers :

I have experience this unfortunately the drive mechanics
motor and more so the gears are plastic when mine dropped it broke a tooth on the gear off the drive motor that drives the worm gear that extends and retracts the lens assembly. this sad to say but the units are not repairable and the assembly has to be replaced owen to the fact that it really is cheaper to replace the assembly than try and repair it.
Only try this if your camera is out of warranty. Turn camera on, and extend lens fully, now grab outer most element and pull out. Sometimes you can reseat the lens in the track at the correct point. I used to do this all the time to my older digital cameras.
