I simply turned the camera on and held the menu button in for 30 to 40 seconds. It fixed it!

Battery door won't stay closed on Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-S90 Digital Camera

The battery door latch is most likely damaged/broken. Try using a piece of duct tape to keep it closed. I've done this on several cameras with battery door latch issues & the doors stayed shut just fine.

Camera will shut off then the shutter will close

Yes it could. It is possible a small dirt get on the side of the lense and it prevents the lense to close all the way in. Clean it up and while turning the camera off, push the lense in. Not too hard. You might have to repeat the step a few times. Do not drop your camera, if you did make sure you clean the sides of the popped off lense. If they did not help, some mechanical part of the lense is shifted or broken.

Good Luck

Cyber SHot DSC-W80 lens will not close.

Your lens is jammed. Odds are it's unrepairable, but as a last ditch effort try GENTLY wiggling/twisting the lens as you attempt to power down or on.

Dsc w7

While turning in off softely press the lense in and out a couple of times. The lense would retract. If not fully, but most of the way, push the lense a little harder in until completely retract. If you turn it on, I should work fine. The reason the lense does not retract is most likely some dust in there somewhere. If it did not help, you would have to open the lense and clean it and close the lense.

I hope it helps,
