Having problems with your Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W80 Digital Camera ?

Camera Failure I was taking pictures of my daughter on the beach last week and my camera just quit. The lens is still out. This has happened before when the battery died, but I charged the battery and it still won't work. I am pretty positive that I have an extended warranty on the camera (though it is only a few months old) but I can't find my paper work. What do I need to do? Do you think you know what is wrong with it? Amy


Answers :

Hi amy just try gently pulling and twisting the end of the lense be gentle and dont pull and twist till it pops switch it off then back on and you should be fine
You should find warranty papers and claim it to Sony. If you open camera by yourself, warranty will be void.

Adding WD-40 Will adding a little bit of wd-50 to the camera zoom swivel head affect the camera? I probably should have sprayed it on a napkin and wiped it but I sprayed it directly on. But not much at all. But my camera has completely stopped working and its stuck with the zoom out and everything. But it might also be a battery problem since I dont have my battery charger and dont know if the camera died but I dont think it would die with the lens still exposed. I have a Sone DSC-W50.

The battery for my z33wp won't charge anymore. It has only been fully charged 3-4 times. The camera's fine because with the little bit of battery left, it still worked perfectly. I don't know if the fault is with the charger or the battery. I'm still just about covered with the 6 month warranty, but im just wondering if this is a common problem. Would purchasing an alternative battery and charger be a good idea?

My Kodak Z1012 is camera doesn't work. I sent it to Kodak because it had a 1 year warranty. They mailed it back and said everything was fine but it still didn't work. I researched and many people said that it was the battery and that I needed to use a specific kind of Ion battery. I bought a Kodak KLIC 8000 rechargable battery and it still doesn't work. My year warranty has passed and now I am stuck with this camera that doesn't work. Any suggestions? Thank you.

My Vivitar waterproof camera will not power up-have replaced batteries but still not working. It has only been used a few times but is now out of warranty. Have noticed there is a slight salt residue in battery compartment. Don't know why this has happened as I made sure the compartment was properly sealed and I always rinsed camera in fresh water after use. Is it worth sending away to get it looked at? (Will cost $44.00 plus postage).

3 times i've the same problem with my camera, 3 times they've sent it back. The problem still exists. A new battery, properly charged by me, the camera takes between 1 and 5 photos and then the camera goes dead. I was told by Canon that the battery lid on the camera was causing a short, they said 'Problem solved.' Nope, the problem is still there and i've run out of extended warranty. Please, please help.

Slow camera Thank you for the suggestions. I got the camera about 6 years ago and it worked fine. The problem started recently, over the last few months. It cannot be related to the card, or the processor. They were the same when it worked well. It is charging up very slowly. I think it is either a capacitor or a rechargable battery that lost performance over time. Do you know anything about the inside battery?


Unfortunately, the externals you use are AA's so I'm sure you've tried new ones there.  \015\012The internal battery (or capacitor) is not worth attempting to replace for a camera of that age. You may end up spending more to replace the battery ... Fuji FinePix A303 Digital Camera

My Kodak EasyShare M753 wont turn on at all, but when i tried charging it, it still wouldnt turn on. I have tried lots of different charging methods, like my USD port that came with the camera and my printing docking system and it still dosn't work.

Hello there, My Samsung ES55 recently stopped working completely (not turning on) for no apparent reason. I had been taking lots of photos, 153 to be exact, and then it just didn't work. It was still under warranty and when I got it back from the camera shop, they told me it had been dropped - which it hadn't - and whilst it was now working, they would guaruntee it any more. Now the camera works but the images are often blurred. I think it might be an auto-focus problem. When I try and tak

Battery problem This morning I turned on my brand new Nikon Coolpix 5400 and got nothing on the screen. pushed some buttons and still nothing. Went to turn it off and it won't. The lens stays extended and the power light is still on. I don't know if maybe the batteries are so low they can't do anything, but I was under the impression that the camera had an indicator for the batteries really needing to be recharged. The low battery light was on last night, but I haven't seen need to be recharged


Some of these cameras go from "low" to "no" very quickly. The electronics are more sensitive to available voltage than the mechanicals and it doesn't take full voltage to keep an led lit or to retract the lens. But the cpu shuts down. I would have ex ... Nikon Coolpix 5400 Digital Camera

I have a kodak z8121s and I have been running it with regular aa batteries but it uses them up so fast so I decided to go ahead and spend over $100 to buy the kodak lithium 3.7v rechargable battery klic8000 with a charger and guess what the battery will not work in my camera.
