Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-S40 Digital Camera
My sony Cybershot camera has the Lens stuck inside. I dropped it the other day. And apparently the lens hit the table first. Now the black shutter doors open, but the lens goes on a 20 second struggle to come out. It tries, but it cant. Then I get the message on the LCD screen that says " turn the power off and on again". If i turn on the camera on the viewing feature i can see all the pictures and everything works just fine. But the lens is ruining everything. Am i doomed? Please HELP!!!
Gently tap it on a table or flat surface a few times. Worked for me!

I guess you are Doomed. The Zoom mechanism is smashed and an economic repair is going to be a no no You could try a local repairer or Sony Tech help team but I feel it would be more prudent to buy the next camera.

I have the exact same problem with my Cyber-shot; the lens is stuck inside. After trying everything to loosen it (like wedging a razor knife between the sections, even dropping it or banging it against a book, etc) non of which I recommend, I finally got it open by PUSHING on the black telescoping section surrounding the lens itself. For some reason, this worked!
