Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-P72 Digital Camera
I have a had this camera for almost 3 years and went to use it and i can't take any pic with it i turn it on and all it does is the lens comes out and then back in it does this about five time and then tells me to turn off power and turn it back on but it does not work not a batterie problem they are fully charged i can look at the pic i have taken but can't take any more i have no idea what is wrong try to rest it but nothing
This is a known problem with the Sony cybershot. Well at least they know about it. My brother had a camera did the exact same thing. It was out of warrany but not by much. Called Sony found Sony extended its warranty on the camera. Sent it in the camera came back with a new lens assembly and a software update. If you search around the internet there are some people that say that you can take it apart and grease the lens. But I would not recommend this unless you are a design engineer for Sony. The lens mechanism is timed and very delicate not to mention getting the inner lenses smudged. But if you are just going to send it to the trash I would try it. But6 be careful of high voltage to the falsh if you choose to take it apart.
