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

My sony cybershot DSC-S700 is not turning on and the lense is stuck out all of the way. Is there any possiblity of being able to fix this myself?


Answers :

You have internal problems to start with. This camera may cost more to fix than it is worth, however I would try to call Sony support and see how much to repair or possibly to trade in on a refurbished unit if the repairs are too much.
These kinds of problems develop after an impact of some sort, or being dropped, or some such damage.
To fix it your self is not the best way to go, and more than likely will damage the camera so much, that it will not be worth it to even sell it for parts on a site such as Ebay. There may be internal broken parts, which may require parts to be bought for repairs.

Hello typrice, at the second paraghrap you said: "Or the battery ran down with the lens extended." as a possible cause. I'm quite sure this is what happend with my camera (is a FE-340 model) so I tryed all the fixes 1 to 4, because I don't think it is a blocking problem of the lens. The simtom is just as discribed (lens go out and in 3 times, then turn off). I still can't fix the problem, there is any way to restart the software?? I find it should be simple to fix but still have no success... PL

I purchased a Sanyo 12.1 mp camera with 3x optical zoom less than a month ago and for some reason it will not focus on anything. The screen shows everything as a big blur. I have checked the lense to see if there was a possible smudge on it but there isnt and none of the camera settings have been changed. It is also making sounds like it is trying to focus but cannot. Is there any way to possibly fix this?

Same problem My camera has never been droped or abused in any way and not very long ago I noticed a hairline crack through the center of the door. It has progressed so rapidly that the dor is now cracked completly in 2 and the battery conduct plate is all that is holding it together.

I think when the optical zoom was out, it was accidentally bent - pushed it in and now it will not release and come out. Possible bent? Turn on the camera and it does not come out . Wonder if there's a way to fix this.


Dgo, \012\012It sounds like you may have stripped the gears that are responsible for the lens extension. It is probably fixable,but a new camera would cost less than a repair. \012\012\012Thank you. ... HP Photosmart 945 Digital Camera

I have never lost any pictures that I have taken with my Canon SD500 camera with a memory card but I ended up buying a 2 GB memory card while in Hawaii and was able to take pictures. For whatever reason, some of my pictures are missing. What could have possibly happened to the pics and is there any way of retrieving them?

While switching off, the lens doesn't come back to normal position, instead it stops in half way ejected position. From the LED display i could see a blurred image. I am able to see all the photos that i have taken so far, but am not able to take any new photos.
