How to Remove the Lens Cover on a Sony DSC-T7

The front cover on my T7 no longer turns the camers off and on. I know the switch went wonky, but I cant figure out how to remove the cover so I can look at the switch. I removed the 6 screws holding the case together but it binds at the top on the battery cover side. I guess I could use my Channel-Loks, but there must be a gentler solution.

    Exact same problem here with the lens cover. It says it's closed when it is NOT. I'm completely attached to my camera but I have had it since December 2005 :( Repair costs are UP there.

It is only six screws, and you have to GENTLY wiggly the front cover off....Start at the bottom, and wiggle side to side to get it unattached at the top of the panel. I just got mine off. I'm having black screen problems....

My Sony DSC T7 camera lens problem, When I slide the cover of lens, its says that "Lens cover Closed". so I am unable to take picture. Please help me. Thanks Anil

Mr anil there seems to be a problem with the sensor linked to the lens guard. Try to move the lens cover a few times and try to open the cover as much as possible just to initiate the sensor. If this does not solve the problem then you have to show it to a mechanic.

Sony cybershot dsc - t7. the display says ''lens cover closed''

It appears that you have already tried what I'd have suggested as a last resort. Apart from cleaning the contacts and removing the battery for 15 minutes there is not much that can be done.

In my opinion it is better to purchase new camera than to spend so much on this one. Note that sony may also charge you a checking fee if you decide to send the camera in hope for less costly repair than they estimated.

And yes, it would be fruitless to dismantle the camera if you are not qualified for this stuff. There are no user serviceable parts inside and also there are timed mechanical switches which can be difficult to reassemble without a proper schematic.

PS. Please do not use Vodka for cleaning electronic components as it contains small amount of moisture. Use Isopropyl alcohol.

Hey lmcconnell,
Error code E:61:00 means the camera has encountered a malfunction, and you should try initializing the camera back to the factory settings. Instructions on how to do this are on page 51 of your user manual, and I have included a link to a PDF download of your manual if you no longer have it. If this doesn't work I would have the camera looked at by an authorized service technician. I hope this helps!

Go Ahead. Use Us.

Lens Cover Closed

the switch inside that activates the camera is probably loose, or worse, broken.

Turn on the camera, cover lens is closed even though i already pull it down

if you open up your casing you will find that almost dead center on the front PCB, just to the right of the battery at the top of the empty battery area there is a box. possibly with some plastic fragment that is broken off. if you touch inside this box w/ something conductive it will think the lens is open. You can either fix this area or permanently solder it so it thinks it is always open. You can still turn it off using the button on the side of the camera

Small dent on lens cover

Put a sticker over it or a little stripe or somthing. The cover looks like its connected on the inside of the front case. Contact sony maybe they will send you a little slony logo sticker? you know how their logo is little dots? maybe you can find one on e-bay or somthing. Stickers cover everything :P
