Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W70 Digital Camera
I dropped the camera while on, and now the lens is stuck. When turned on it tries to move the lens but can't. I opened the camera and tried to move the lens but wasn't able to see anything stuck. Any ideas on where to look or what to do?
There actually is a little gear inside that moves the lens and since you already opened it make sure the gear is there and moves. LOTS of problems with these cameras....

Same thing happened to me, how much was the repair cost for the gear? I tried blowing in the lenses, but no luck!
Now I am debating to pay for repair or buy a new camera....

Both lens have a little play in them. While moving each lens around slightly, blow some air from your mouth, not from a can of compressed air in between the lens to dislodge the dust, dirt or sand that might be causing the problem. It worked for me.

apparently i have some bad news , its the lense which is misaligned or broken in terms of gears, the thing to do turn on the camera and make sure that lens is out and then LIGHTLY tapp on the lens the direction of which you feel that the lens is not equal legnth to the outer ring > place that looks uneven
