Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-P92 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Dropped my camera, now it's broken.

I was attempting to take a picture and the camera, while on and ready, clattered to the tile floor when my hand slipped. Whenever I turned it on, it Access on a black screen and does nothing for a while before shutting itself off. On occasion, a symbol that looks like a battery with a slash through it appears and flashes before shutting off. When connected to the PC, it works fine. This isn't my camera, I'm borrowing it. I don't have the manual or warranty with me. Please help.

Re: Dropped my camera, now it's broken.

Take the batteries out and recharge them and also look in the battery compartment for any cracks or contacts out of place. what your describing is that the camera can't get enough power to load up.

Hi Pavel

Sorry but your camera needs to have the lens replaced. The drop onto the floor damaged it and the only way to fix it is to replace it. Wish I had better news for you.

My daughter dropped my Canon on the tile floor and now the zoom lens will not open. It says "lens error, restart camera." What do I do?

When the camera was dropped, the lens was most likely twisted. So you either have to try to force it back (be gently) or send it in to Canon repairs.

Sony DSC-T200 Dropped on floor - grinding noise


thank you for using fixya.

the zoom and focus assembly is at fault, the grinding noise and shacking is a result of s de-railed plastic gear.

if the camera is still under warranty have it serviced, take note that if the gear is broken and not de-railed, mounts may be broken also.

here is an example of the assembly.


hope this helps.

Dropped camera!

Electronics goods are only for safe use. Not for droping, if it happens then go to purchase new one.
If it was in India, there was an option for repairing. Otherwise through it away.

I dropped my Casio EX-Z1000 on a tile floor. The camera turns on and the lens goes out and quickly retracts and camera shuts off. I can still view pictures on my card and can enter info on date, time, etc....

Unfortunitly when ever a digital camera is dropped it can cause the lens to come out of alignment this is what causes the error or problem. The len has several moving parts and can be replace most of the time it knocks the focus motor and zoom motor out of sync thust causing the lens to go out to try and post and sience the camera can tell the alignment is off then the lens goes back in. The repair for this should be around 100.00 I just got through fixing 2 of these for the same problem. Sorry but I hope this helps.

Broken camera

It is likely that your lens assembly was knocked out of alignment when you dropped the camera. When things do not line up inside the lens the whole unit cannot move in and out. This malfunction requires disassembly to fix, so you will have to get it to a professional for repair. There are providers online who can repair your camera, and also check with your manufacturer to see if they can service the camera at a reasonable rate. David Millier Advance Camera Repair
