Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-W1 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Camera probably needs cleaning.

My daughter took my camera to Mexico. During her stay, the camera would not turn on properly. The same thing happened to one of her friend's camera (DSC-W7). Her friend had her camera cleaned and now it works fine. The sand in the wind was the problem. The person at Best Buy said it was not very dirty (it was still under warranty). Can I clean my W1 myself? It look like the fine grit in the lens is the problem.

If you find any friction or noisy movement of lense assembly while switching on the camera, its probably fine sand particals stucked in ths lense assembly. pls do not try to operate or fix the problem as it would be needing thorough cleaning by an expert.

My camera inclusive does not turn on .when I got it in the store was fine and I sent it as a gift to Mexico,unfortunatelly did not work properly. it was too bad.what can I do ? throw it away.... what...


It sounds as if it may have been damaged during shipping. If you had insurance on it, contact the shipping company to file an insurance claim.

Else, the batteries may have gone bad during shipping. Replace the batteries and try again. If it still doesn't work, contact the company you bought this camera from for replacement or repair.

Built-In Speedlight (Flash) will not retract. Im not talking about an external light but the one thats built into the camera. it wont retract and stays up all the time and wont lock in the closed position.


This is a job for the service department rarely can a user dismantle and repair one of these cameras and have it work when completed. I had the same thing happen to be while testing sets for a photo shoot. The camera functioned properly in all aspects except the flash was up, I tried just ignoring it but that didn't sit to well so I took a mailing elastic and held the thing down. I got looks from the Director so chuckle took some black electrical tape and taped that thing down and all was fine. Sent the thing back to Nikon and as politely as possible told then what they could do with their camera. Anyway that's what happened to me and the only fix is to let those that repair these thing do the repair, in my case it was just a miss aligned latch.

My Samsung S860 won't even turn on anymore. I changed the batteries but it is still not doing anything. Is there something I should do?


Same thing just happened to us. The green light comes on and the lens opens up but the screen stays blank and it gets stuck here. My daughter barely used this camera - only has taken about 180-200 pictures since she received it as a gift.

My camera won't turn on. I charge it and the red charging light comes on. I have returned the camera for the same problem 3 times. bought it from WalMart. I was on my vacation the 1st time it happened, and...


Are you sure the battery was inserted properly? Try putting it in the way that looks backwards... the battery seriously looks like it's supposed to go in the wrong way. If you're looking inside and using the spring for a reference, DON'T. The spring is only there to push the battery out, not to attach to it.

Lens does not close anymore -


When you opened it the cog connected to the motor which opens and closes the lens probably shifted and no longer has traction against the ring around the inside of the lens which turns it to open and close it. If you open the camera up again be extremely careful - the lens has loads of springs inside it - lose one of these and it won't work properly. I opened up the whole thing to try and fix my lens which had been jammed in after a friend dropped it. I fixed the lens but couldn't put the damn thing back together again to many tiny parts and no guide to the jigsaw!!

Camera power problems?


It's not the battery. It turned out to be a memory card problem.

I took out my old memory card and put in a new one. It started working properly after that.
