Having problems with your Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W70 Digital Camera ?

Hi, when I turn on my Sony dsc w7 cybershop, you can hear the motor trying to activate the lens which doesn't open or push out. Then it starts beeping and the lcd says turn power off and on again. How, if I can, do I fix this. Don't want to get rid of the camera as it certainly has seen much use . PLEASE HELP! Thanx


Answers :

There have been a lot of similar problems with the Sony Cybershot DSC series.

For sure the problem is with the lens sticking\015\012(either not retracting or retracting then coming out then going back\015\012again, etc.) What I seem to have found is that this "off, then on"\015\012problem is caused by some little cogs around the lens that easily slip\015\012out of place in this camera. The camera has trouble sensing if the lens\015\012is in or out, which is why it keeps asking you to turn it off then on\015\012again.

One solution is to give the camera a firm tap\015\012around the lens area. I don't necessarily recommend that since those\015\012cogs in there are obviously delicate. Other than that, repair is going\015\012to require opening up the camera and setting those little things back\015\012into place.

Here's another story:

I have dsc-w70 with lens stuck out . When you turn it on , you will see\015\012a message turn the power off . I've just fixed this morning without any\015\012tool and it took only a second . When i turn the power off with my left\015\012thumb , i used my right hand to squeeze the lens with little push it in\015\012, it will be back to the right position it should be . My camera is\015\012working great now like before . Do not affraid , hope everyone can do\015\012it .

And then another solution that you can try is to change the battery pack of your camera.

Good luck .
As you turn the camera on, pull out on the lens to help it along, as\015\012you turn it off, push in on the lens to help it close. At one point\015\012when the camera was off, try pushing the lens in all the way, slowly but\015\012don't be afraid to push until it stays shut. Then, turn it on I\015\012had to pull the lens out a little. It keeps opening and closing\015\012continuously. Just keep pulling and also move the base of the lens\015\012until it is even all the way around. Push and pull while turning off\015\012and on. Don't be afraid to push and pull with your fingers, not a tool.\015\012It might took you about 10-15 min. Make sure the lens is pulled out all the\015\012way. Sometimes it is just that last small amount that needs to be\015\012pushed or pulled.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H2 turns on sporadically. Once on it works fine. Shut it off and try to turn back on and it doesn't. Repeated pushing of the power button maybe 30-40 times and it turns back on again. Once you get it on it Works fine. Turn off and when you want to turn it on again must push power button over and over to get it on again. This happens with brand new batteries and with rechargeable batteries that have been fully charged. Any assistance would be appreciated. Doug Clark

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?!
