Lens will not re-tract

Hello,
My lens on my Cyber-shot DSC-P200 will not re-tract, I've turned it of, taken out the battery, reset it and tried to push it back while pushing the on/off button but it still stays out. Any help would be great.
Thanks,
Bri

My camera had a similar problem. Even with a new battery the lens would not retract. I unscrewed the case and removed the front jacket. The lens assembly was at a 70* angle. I firmly grasped the lens housing and pulled it back to 90*. You will hear a firm click as the gears line backup. It did the job as I powered up the camera I heard the gears reengage. Powered it down and the lens retracted. My fix was pretty simple, but fortunately I had a back-up camera if it didn't work. A recommendation is to upgrade these cameras to 8gb memory stick. You can get an adapter at Best Buy to work with these cameras.

Hello,

Bummer huh? I dropped mine a while back and damaged my battery cover!

I would try...taking out the batteries and reinstalling them! This may reset your camera?

Otherwise, I would do a web search and type in:

Hope this helps you get your camera working again!

Kind Regards!

This seriously does work. I just took the battery out, placed it back in and when it was accessing I banged it (not even that hard) against my knee and it now can focus in and out. I almost can't believe that it worked, but it surely did.

My camera, Sony Cyber Shot, P200, makes a beeping sound and asks that I turn it off and on again. The lens does not open or come out to enable picture to be taken? I have recharged the battery to no avail....


Hello

The problem is 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.

Regards
Andrea

Lens stuck in the out position. Have switched off, taken out batteries, tried again...


The lens has probably got something in the retraction mechanism that is stopping it retracting. This can be something as simple as sand or grit or as a result of a drop or knock. In most cases the camera will need to be stripped apart to remove the lens assy before it can be repaired. This is best left to a professional camera repair shop.

Warning when i power on


The internals to the lens assembly is at fault and only a micro repair can fix it, sometimes it the pins that allows the lens to move are off track. sometimes its the focal motor within the lens. all are motor gear driven and stick randomly.
not worth fixin due to the falling prices.
