Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W50 Digital Camera
I have a sony w50 with an ovious problem with the lens. When I power it on it says Access" then the lens moves and then it says " Turn the power off and on again" I do it and nothing happens. then I turn it off and the lens retracts but not all the way in the small lens goes in to the big barrel but the lens barrel stays out a bit.. then if i turn it back on ' both lens come out and i can grab them and move them aropunf they kinda giggle around... then if i turn it off and push gently the lens in it goes all the way into the camera body with no problem.. and sometimees when i push it in it tryes to come out again alone..!! so any help ....
My camera started off with the same problem, then it progressed into the state its in now, completely in inoperable. I thought it was just the battery that had gone bad, so i replaced it. Nope, the dumb thing wont turn on at all. I took it to a repair shop out in town (im a marine stationed in japan) and from what i could make out of their english was that the camera is junk now and to buy a new one.... I suggest you just throw away yours and do the same.

If you have 'Grabbed them and jiggled them around' Then I am certain the camera is wrecked and beyond repair. Very fine parts here and not intended for that type of treatment. Almost certainly a no repair job because there will be no parts available. Though you could try a repair shop. Time for another one then and this time treat with a modicom of respect.
