The battery door latch is most likely damaged/broken. Try using a piece of duct tape to keep it closed. I've done this on several cameras with battery door latch issues & the doors stayed shut just fine.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).

I have this camera and it's been broken for a while, I got sand in the mechanism when I was on the beach. (Yes, quite dumb, I know).

I'm a completely a-technical guy, but without anything to lose I opened it up (4 screws, 1 of 'em next to the batteries).

Inside, I lifted the black hatch on the bottom left of the lens. (2 screws). There are 6 (white) cogs of different sizes underneath, which connect to the main (black) cog which extends the lens. Under the white cogs is the motor for the lens, but unless you get absolutely no buzzing or anything when turning the camera on (which would mean your motor is toast) you don't need to go there.

I made a schematic drawing before taking out all the little cogs and sprockets and whatnots. I cleaned them one by one with a needle and put them back using tweezers. I tested it by pushing the main (black) cog with the needle, clockwise, and pulling out the lens manually. It came all the way out, whereas before it didn't, so I closed it back up, and it was fixed!

Good luck.

I think you need to convert the videos with a video converter for your use.

There are a number of ways with which a lens malfunction can be caused. Particulates might have managed to get into the mechanical bits that allow the lens to retract, a purely physical interference with the lens mechanism. If the camera was dropped, especially while the lens was extended, there's a pretty good chance something might have been knocked loose, such as the guide pins upon which the lens withdraws and retracts.

How to Repair a Lens Error: As scary as a lens error might seem, there are some easy fixes. Before trying any of them out, however, first take a good long look at your camera warranty and maybe have a chat with the company. If the lens error will be covered under the terms of the warranty, go for it. Even some of the simple fixes mentioned below might void the camera warranty. Frankly, however, it's unlikely that a lens error will qualify for the warranty.

Try just some basic things first-just to make sure it's actually the lens that's broken. Replace the batteries with fresh ones. Failing that, replace the memory card.

Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

If you want to delete ALL your pictures, the easiest and best way is to format the card. In fact, the card should be formatted each time you finish downloading your pictures to your computer. FixYa is full of people asking how to retrieve pictures from cards that haven't been formatted regularly.

Sony Cyber-Shot... | Answered on Jun 19, 2011


Hi,

You need to format the memory stick. This would resolve the problem. If the problem still persists, you need to buy a new memory stick for the same.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!
