Sony DSC W50 - lens stuck

A friend of mine dropped my camera - much to my annoyance - and now the outer half of the lens is stuck. The camera still functions correctly for viewing pictures, but when in picture taking mode I get a black screen and it tells me to try turning it off and on again, and I do this only to get the same message again and again. I've only had the camera six months.

    I am on my 2nd camera in this model DSC-W55 and the lens has stuck on both of them. The first one i owned for 6 months, and this one I have owned for 3 months. After reading numerous posts, I am convinced this camera is cheaply made and poor quality.

I have just had this problem, my 4 yo tried to use the camera and accidentally let the camera fall to the floor. I grabbed the lens with my hand and carefully tried to realign the lens. It worked and saved the camera. I hope it works for you.

The lens mechanism is wrecked. I guess a repair will cost nearly as much as new camera- get your 'friend' to treat you.

Hello,

Bummer huh? I dropped mine a while back and damaged my battery cover!

I would try...taking out the batteries and reinstalling them! This may reset your camera?

Otherwise, I would do a web search and type in:

Sony Cyber-shot Camera DSC-W50 troubleshooting

Hope this helps you get your camera working again!

Kind Regards!

Zoomlens stuck


Examine the lens carefully. you will see that the outer lens is out of line with the inner lens. . hold the camera firmly with one hand using the fingers of the second hand firmly nudge the outer lens back in line. reinsert battery and test.
Good luck,

Lens stuck


Knocking the camera sounds like it works but may create another problem. I have had this problem with p-100 , p-200 and now the w50, I have found a small drop, of wd40 placed on both sides ,two opposing sides,of the lens ring where it extends from the body will work also. Don't spray, its a bit too hard to control amount deposited. Use a toothpick or a stick to dip and then drop the oil.
