Having problems with your Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W55 Digital Camera ?

Dear Sir, I have SONY DSC W-55 series camera. Whenever I turn on the camera its lens tries to adjust and always displays a message for turning off and turn on again.


Answers :

This is usually caused by impact damge to the lens barrel or sand/grit ingress.Quik turn on the camera let the lens try to adjust.Then remove the power with the lens extended as far as it will go. Hold the camera up and check if the front of the lens is exactly parallel with the camera housing. If it is skew you can try gently pulling on the inner barrel which(If your lucky) will pop back into the correct cam.

Camera was on, working fine. When powering off, telescoping lens did not retract so lens remained extended just a bit with lens cover open.

My Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ2 camera has a blurred display within 25 seconds of being turned on when in any mode other than playback. When the display blurs, it quite quickly becomes unviewable, and if I try to take a photo, an error message saying WRITE ERROR PLEASE CHECK THE CARD shows on the screen. The card seems fine and pictures I took before today all look good, both on the display and in a computer. Is there any fix, or do I need a new camera?


This is a problem with the camera lens and yes this can still be fix but you need to have it check on a service center but that price will not be cheap so if I may suggest it will be better to get a new camera..... ... Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ2 Digital Camera

I won a Canon PowerPoint S3 IS at an eBay auction; it was in the working camera listings. It turned out that in the finer detail, the owner said that everything worked except for the "Memory Card Error" found in the display window. I posted this a few days ago. I now have the camera, and I've tried two different memory cards (one came out of another Canon PowerPoint, and it does work) and neither works. Still have the same message;"Memory Card Error." This item was incorrectly listed as working.
