If it is at all like my C8080, there are 4 screws that hold the lens guard in place, accesible only when the case is opened. This is the fixed tube that the lens extends out of. The knurled coller is a screw on piece that allows a lens tube to be screwed on, that can be tightened by hand. If the lens itself seems kinda wobbly, that is normal and is just showing a little sign of age. It wont affect the picture. The lens rides on helical rails on a rotating inner barrel and these rails and bushings get a little worn over time.

Hello

Thank you for using FIXYA!!!

This is a suggestion. If you do not feel comfortable trying it, you will need to take the unit to your nearest service centre. Feel free to let me know if you need any assistance.

The problem might be that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair centre for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

Hope the advise is useful. please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance. Also, please be so kind to let me know if you found this helpful.

Regards
Andrea

Sadly you are wasting your time as even if you can repair the lens element you lack the lens collimation equipment needed to set it up correctly.

By far the easiest, quickest and cheapest option is to sell your camera as a "spare or repairs" example and to use the funds towards another used example in good working order.

You have the added problem that when the lens did get stuck and you forced it free, you may have broken other internal lens parts. Even a professional repairer would not try to fix the lens assembly, they'd just order in a complete new lens assembly and fit that instead. The cost of the part alone, even without labour charges, will exceed the cost of buying another fully functional G5 privately.

Hi tin_080 , the aperture actuating lever was bent or loose and is ahead of the control mechanism of the diaphragm opening in the camera body.
Check this: point the lens towards you notice that the diaphragm is closed.
To avoid more costly damage you take it to a workshop for servicing.

It happens when you open the lens


Hi!
It's a stabilized problem - happens to these cameras. You should contact your local Sony service center and ask how much will cost lens replacement. If they ask too much, you can contact me at toms.safranovs@gmail.com
I work in a Sony service center.

Lens is loose from body


One note on this fix. There are four screws that need to be tightened on the lens. With the cover off and the lens pointing straight forward, there are three small screws visible. After tightening them, rotate the lens upward to expose the fourth screww. After that one is tightened, you can then replace the cover and six cover screws.
