Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W30 Digital Camera
I have Sony DSC-W30 Camera, my lens was stuck-out, this was causing the message "Turn the power off then on again". After some trials, and after using your solution, I have succeeded in geting the lens back to its place. But ... After doing that, when I turn the camera on, the lens go in and out rapidly for 3 times, then I got the same message again "turn the power off then on again" !! is there any solution? I am seeking for your help.
I just rotated the lens and it started to work again. If I didn't see your post I would have been lost. Camera is working perfectly fine again. Thanks guys. Hope my info helps. I turned it very slightly and powered it on and off and it started to operate normally. I am guessing from just tossing it around in my pocket it caused the lens to get screwed up.

It is strongly forbidden to apply any force on the lens unit. All the shaking and banding can do more damage than the original problem is.

Thanks for all the solutions mentioned here, I tried the oil on the lens trick - no luck! Took the advice of hitting the camera hard in several places (which took a bit of doing as I am not prone to violence) BAM WHOOOSH and By Crickey the bloody thing came to life, Thank you!

Hello, the optical unit of the camera is a very sensitive unit. In order to overcome this problem you should replace the zoom motor unit pn:267364801 or lens unit (inclusive the zoom motor unit) pn:178836311 If you need more info please advice.
