Lens/ resolution problem

I have just returned from vacation and i am having problems with my Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W70 Digital Camera. I took beautiful pictures before with beautiful resolution, but i don't why now when i turn the power on the screen's image is very blurry with low resolution and the lens makes a slight sound. Is it possible that i got sand in the lens which is causing the problem or is it something to do with the options? I would be grateful if anyone could help.

Sony DSC-W70 digital camera - Lens attempts to open when pressing the power button but fails with a message to turn off and back on again. Bought a new battery and still does the same thing. Sometimes...

That's a common problem on Cybershot cameras, happened to me twice, the solution is to get it to a camera shop for repair.
The cause could be dirt or a malfunction on the lens extending mechanism.

If the lens is stuck, you might have to get a new camera. Or you can take it to a local repair shop. Or you can look it up online

Hi Guys

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news :(

Both your camera`s lenses are faulty. It is a common problem found on the DSC-W range of cameras and therefore not to expensive to repair.

The lens unit is only available as a complete unit from Sony. Your best bet would be to contact the retailer where you bought it and ask him for the details for your nearest Sony Service centre. It needs to be a Authorised service centre as there are software and settings that must be done after a lens replacement.

In my experience repair cost will be between 40 and 60 % of the price you paid for the camera.

Sorry there really is not anything you can do yourselves to fix these problems.

Good luck

System error sony DSC-w70

Try re-charging your battery or you may check your memory stick. If the cause of this problem is by an accidental drop of the device, then may be you suspected right on the lens. It may cause dis a line of gears... ^_^
