Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-W5 Digital Camera
The lens of my camera is stuck out. I get an error message telling me to power off & on. When I do this, it tries to wind lens in/out, but it only moves part way & then returns to being stuck out. Is there a solution to reset it? It hasn't been dropped & is under warranty - it's just stopped working.
Ughhhh, I have the SAME EXACT problem and of course it happened 2 months after the warranty expired. This sucks, I called some camera repair shops and I may as well buy a new camera. NEVER buying Sony again, EVER. So upset.

If it is under warranty send it in as soon as possible. Have a brother same problem. I believe it is a known problem with Sony cameras, but you don't see that in there adds. But he sent his in they replaced the lens assembly and updated the software. His was only three monthes old at the time.
