Hi

What you are seeing is a generic lens error message, your lens needs to be repaired or replaced. If you go to our website Darntoothysam com, and search for "W80" you will find the listing for the repair package for only about $70 total including return shipping! We will install a new lens in the camera and give you a 45 day warranty on parts and labor for this price, as we are now able to buy lenses overseas at a great price direct from the manufacturers.

I cannot post a link to the repair or Fixya will ban me! So please go to the website and search "W80", you can also check out our eBay store, eBay ID is "darntoothysam".

We hope to earn your business!

Usually the case gets bent and partially obstructs the lense movement. Look at the front of the camera and does the case opening for the lense apear to be egg shaped. If it does stick a small screw driver or butter knife and bent back.

Lens opens then closes, a few times then error message


no you shouldnt repair it yourself it will only make it worse, the lense have become disalligned it can be repaired for you and that is the best option. you can also try gently pulling and twisting the end of the lense and i mean gentle dont twist and pull till it pops. once you have done this switch it off and on and it may have worked to allign the lenses.

Cyber SHot DSC-W80 lens will not close.


Your lens is jammed. Odds are it's unrepairable, but as a last ditch effort try GENTLY wiggling/twisting the lens as you attempt to power down or on.

DSC W80.


Whenever you switch on the camera the lense comes out to a certain places, stops and the camera is initialized to take the picture. In some cases when there is a friction in the movement of the lense, it does not comes out fully up to the proper position. so the camera mechanism draws it back and again pushes it out. this happens 3-4 times and if still the lense does not reaches its position it displays "turn the power off and on again" and the problem continues.

Your camera needs a repair of the lense assembly.
