Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-W1 Digital Camera

My camera won't turn on

I was using my camera today and it shut off on its own with the lense out. I thought that maybe it had to do with the batteries so I charged a new set and put it in but it still wouldn't turn on. I also tried to plug it in to the usb cord for my computer and it still wont turn on. The camera is not damaged in any way, so I'm not sure what the problem could be or how I can fix this? Is there some way to repair it or reset the whole camera?

My camera lense won't go in. Everytime I switch it

Your batteries are too low.
When you switch on the camera, the lense go in. Then lense comes out fully. Then, if the batteries are low, lense goes in and camera turns off.
But if the batteries are too low, camera turns off before the lense retracts or even before the lense comes out fully.

Do I need a driver for my sanyo vpc 5885 digital camera because it won't download pictures to my computer via USB anymore. It turns on and then as soon as I push "set" for the PC the lense...

Easiest solution is to get a USB card reader and then use that to transfer the data - the PC will just see the card as an extra drive.

I just purchased the Nikon 18-200mm F/3.5-5.6 G ED-IF AF-S VR DX lens for my Nikon D40 on-line for a used camera store. I received it today and I don't think it works, but I wasn't sure. The zoom will...

You are correct. The lens is faulty and there's nothing you can do to fix it as it needs professional attention. Contact the seller immediately to try and get a return authorisation and refund.

"turn off and on again"

a few weeks ago i dropped my camera in the sea and i thought, ****. i was in the same boat, so i opened the shutter myself and turned on the camera and it works and takes pictures but the shutter wont close again so if you can make sure you have no dirt in your lense and you can manually open the shutter yourself it may work and if it stops turning on all together keep charging it and once it goes green turn the switch off and on again until it always turns green then it should work again.

Broken Camera

It''s the need to buy rechargable batteries or lithium batteries. These batteries are specialied made for digital cameras. The lense is shutting off and or stuck because there isnt enough power/energy from the batteries. This is also a COMMON problem in these specific models! You can buy recharge batteies wityh the chrager and like 4 aa batteries for around $20.00 at wal-mart..Energizer is a nice one that plugs right into your wall outlet to recharge. My camera Samsung diximax D53 Works great now taht O realized it was teh batteries..No vody told em, and it doesnt specify which batterios to use in teh camera least I dont think..I even thought the camera came with regular alkaline batteries ( the ones taht wont work fior this camera)?
