Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W130 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Wobbly lens I have just purchased a Sony W130. It is my first ever camera. When the camera is off the lens section can be moved about 1/2mm with gentle movement of the camera. When zoom is fully extended it can be moved side to side by gentle pushing about 1 1/2mm. Is this normal or is the camera faulty? It doesn't seem to be affecting the pictures but everytime I use it I get a vibration warning on the screen.

Half mm or so movement is normal in fully extended lens. If camera is not giving any error display during function then every thing is just fine in it.

Plz i have sony dsc w130 and her proplem stop to take picture and in screen have message .... turn the power off and try again but i restart he repeat this message


Hello

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

Hope the advise is useful.

Regards
Andrea

call sony for address to send it for estimate of repairs, that's what I have done with different cameras sometimes repairs more than new camera.

DSC-W130 Camera Lens extends and retracts


Try cleaning your battery compartment contacts with a Q-Tip "dampened" in rubbing alcohol. The computer is getting a weak signal and is unable to decipher its commands. Also, clean the battery terminals and the charger contacts. I'm certain this will solve your problem. Thanks, Dana

Sony dscw130 lens wont come out


This seems to happen when something (water, sand, dust) gets trapped in the lens mechanism. Has the camera been somewhere filthy before?

The recommended methods include taping on the bottom of the camera, rapping it on a table, and pressing hard on the lens. If the lens moves when you turn the camera on, try keeping your hand on it so that it's forced back into the camera body. A can of compressed air squirted around the lens is also a possible fix... but be super careful with that stuff, a good hard blow of breath might be safer.

I'm not recommending that you do crazy stuff to your camera, but if you're careful you may be able to get it working again without having to get it serviced.
