You can do the repair if you are very good at handling electronic items . You need to open the camera using special tools .
Since lens is struck

* Carefully inspect around it for dirt or debris

* If you see any dirt or debris around the lens, use canned air to gently blow it away

* After removing dirt and debris, turn the camera on and off

This should work
Hope this helps .
If your problem still continues you need to take to service center .

If you are not technically good at handling electronic items it is better to take to repair shop .


Thanks for using FIxya

I replaced the battery hoping that would fix my camera, and the camera will turn on, but now the lens is blacked out with no image so i cannot take pictures. Is it a bad lens or is there something i can do...


Does camera show stored picture in memory stick in playback mode?
If it shows and does not give live view in camera mode to take fresh pictures then it is ccd imager chip failure problem.
Sony offers free of cost ccd imager replacement for DSC-T1 camera, click Sony CCD Imager Support for details or take camera to nearest Sony service center for free fix.
Thanks.

My new Canon SX100IS is having "Lens error, Restart Camera" error


It seems the lens assembly has an internal problem and needs to be repaired.


The lens replacement requires a qualified camera repair technician, unless you want to try in repair it yourself, which requires tools (scredrivers, soldering iron, desoldering tool, magnifier glass with light, etc).

The reason of it it may be a spring or a metal post located in the focus sub-assembly, but the only way to confirm it is opening the camera and the lens assembly.

Low battery maybe? Try holding camera firmly in one hand, with camera on and in record mode, and strike in on its edge firmly on the heal of your other hand. This technique is often sucessful with temporary camer 'quirks' like freezing, lens not fully retracting, etc.

Camera freezes in any picture taking mode


Defective mechanism, a stucked mechanism is present. camcorder are smart it can detects error and shuts down itself for safety. earlier models dominoes the defect if the user is not quick enough to react when something goes wrong with the camera. you need professional service to fix it.
