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

Twisting the lens on the Sony DSC W55

\015 Hi, thanks for your advice on fixing the problem with the Sony DSC W55 where the lens just goes in and out at turn-on, but doesn't stay. I must be doing something wrong, because the fix isn't working. Which way do I twist the lens, CW or CCW? And, do I grasp the part closest to the camera body or the part farthest from the camera body? Thanks.\015

I had the "Access" error when turning on my Sony DSC-W70. The lens would go in and out a few times, and then I would be instructed to turn the power off and on again, which did not help. After reading comments from a few people with the same problem, I tried yanking on the lens when it was out and giving it a good couple of twists. I also took a q-tip with alcohol on it and cleaned all around the sides of the lens. Worked like a charm!
