Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-P52 Digital Camera

Dsc-P52 lens cover sticking

On switch on, with the selector on Still or Movie, the lens cover will not fully open and there is a rasping noise. The screen displays the current view with a message "Turn the power off and on again". Doing this doesn't correct the problem. On switch off the lens cover will not close.Switch on in view folders or set up mode , the lens cover closes and the functions work OK.

You need to go in and physically open the lens cover.
1. take out batteries 2. remove memory card + the small phillips screw.
3. remove the 3 remaining exterior screws. carefully with a small flat tip screwdriver pry the plastic halves slowly. eventually they will come apart. 4. at the bottom remove the small ribbon cable. 5. disconnect the mini motor wire, black and red. 6. unscrew the motor drive for the lens cover and then open the lens. 7. purchase a new lens cover motor. 8. If your screen still says turn off , then press menu and delete some files. good luck ! Work Slowly and carefully and ground your hands to a pipe somewhere before working on the unit. the static electricity could ruin the circuits !

I cannot provide the answer but i think it may have something to do with the shutter mechanism. When you dropped it, something inside the mechanism may have bent or stopped. Don't take the camera apart yourself, take it to a specialist such as an electronics store. I hope this helps. Good Luck!

Take a picture with the camera and download it to your computer. If the picture also shows up black, then this sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager. If so, Sony should fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please check the following link for more info:

When I power on the lense cover only partially opens and will not close when I turn the camera off. Sony DSC-P52


The problem could be from simple dust accumulation to a camera drop. If you take it to the service center, it would be an easy fix, and won't cost you much.

Sony Cybershot DSC-P52: Lens Cover Failure


If the camera has recently been dropped you may have lens damage that is preventing it from powering up. If it's something simple, a power-down reset may help. Turn the camera off, remove the battery, let the camera set for at least 30 minutes, then replace the battery and power up. If it hasn't been dropped your problem may be due to weak/worn out batteries or corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and place them back in the camera and give them a full charge (assuming that you are using rechargeable batteries). This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, your batteries may need to be replaced or the camera may have a problem that requires professional repair.

Shutter problem


sand in the mechanism? Or other kind of wearout... If the lens cover does not open completely due to some mechanical problem, the camera will not work (there are switches to detect cover full open and full closed). Probably needs some repair, cleaning or replacing the cover gears
