LENS PROBLEM Lens keeps zooming in and out when I turn it on. After 4 times, the lens goes back in and it says on the screen, "Turn the power off and on again". Then it does the same thing when I turn it off and back on. Also, the shutter is not closing however it's also not all the way open. Almost half way but more open than closed. Please help!!!

I have a Sony Cybershot DSC W100. I accidentally dropped it and now it says 'Access' and the lens opens and closes three times then beeps and says, 'Turn the power off and on again'. I have done this and it still doesn't work. I tried to initialize the settings - that didn't work either. I even played around with the lens some, and that didn't fix it. If you have any other suggestions please help! I would hate to have to pay $130 bucks to have it fixed.

I dropped my Sony Cybershot DSC-H50 and now the lens won't come out. It turns on and all but it just tells me to turn it off and on again, and it won't let me look at the menu. the circles in the lens are closed and it's pitch black looking at the screen and I tried pressing the shutter button once I turn it on and it just says to turn it off and on again. Also 2 times this occurred, when I could see with it but everything was still blurry and the lens opened up a little but just those 2 times.

Battery Problem I bought a Nikon Coolpix L12 Digital Camera this past summer and have had no problem until last night. My camera turned off and said "battery exhausted."

I had same problem. No matter how many times I have changed batteries, It works for a second then closes with signal saying "warning batt

My kids accidentally dropped my Panazonic Lumix TZ-10 on the floor (not from a great height). The lens at that moment could only half close, but after turning power on and off a few times, now it opens and closes as normal. I can still view photos HOWEVER I cannot take new photos, the screen is black and the photos turn out black. I looked into the lens as it took the photo and there is no movement in there. The camera is still under warranty.


The warranty is unlikely to cover accidental damage but you could check if you have any insurance cover, perhaps in house contents or travel, or you might ask the retailer if he would help under 'goodwill'. It sounds as if the lens extension mechanis ... Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ3 Digital Camera

Lens Error I fell while holding my camera. The lens was open at the time and when I got up I turned the camera off. I then turned it back on to check it and the lens opened and immediately closed with the "lens error" on the screen. I can turn it off and on and the lens will always open but closes as soon as it has opened with the lens error on the screen. The shutter opens but closes also, like the lens. Can this be fixed? It was a gift so I don't have the bill of sale but I still have the orig

Additionally, when I press the power button or the play button on the back, the LCD lights up and says Sony, but nothing else happens.
