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

The lens does not stop popping in and out plus it says to turn off and on again

\015 When i turn on my camera it says access. while the screen says access, the lens is popping in and out a couple of times, then it tells me to turn off the camera and back on. I read on a website to gently pull the lens and twist and that would fix my problem, but unfortenately it didnt.\015

Hi there
\015\012turn camera on, gently take hold of the end of the lense and pull toward you twisting it a few times, be gentle dont make it pop, you may howeveer hear it click. then turn off and on again the problem should be solved.
I followed the advice on a couple of other boards which suggests you actually give the camera a few hard whacks on a tile floor. That worked for some people. With me, after whacking didn't work I took a knife used it to pry up the edge of the lense while it was trying to open. A little of that worked for me.

You can't imagine the sense of accomplishment I felt when the thing finally started working again after all the banging and prying. It's a tough little bugger!

When i turn my camera on, it seems fine, all buttons functional. When i take a photo, it flashes, but no photo will pop up in my screen. Instead the screen stays black, and then the battery starts to get really warm. then i cant turn it on or off, the only way to get the batter to stop heating up, is to take it out of the camera. i can put the battery back in, turn it on again, but it will say no pictures had been taken, and the problem continues every time i try and use it. There is no history

Lens Jam My G6 turned on accidentally in its case and the lens tried to extend but was forced to stop. Now, when I turn the camera on, the lens makes a ratcheting sound and gets halfway before stopping. It beeps and says "LENS" on the top LCD screen, before powering off. I've been quoted £160 just to have it looked at which is half the value of the camera! Does any one know how to open one of these up (safely) and what to do when you get inside to fix the problem?! Many thanks
