Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W80 Digital Camera

Lens cover opens only a **** on Sony DSC-W80

The lens cover on my Sony Cybershot DSC-W80 will only open a little **** every time I turn it on. I have to gently pull on the cover with a fingernail to prompt it to complete opening. When I do this very gently, it then finishes opening on its own. Any ideas of how to fix this, or am I going to have to have it repaired? Thanks!!!

    I do have a precision screw driver set; as for technical skills, well, it depends on the degree of technicality required! But I'm good at following instructions, so if you have them, I'd be most grateful if you'd share. Thanks so much!!

    If you have "technical skills" and "precision screw driver set" then you can fix it by yourself as I'm ready to provide you info how to do that.

Please read carefully below procedure how to remove "Barrier Block" (what you call Lens Cover)..
Turn camera power ON so Lens will extend.
Take out battery so lens will remain extended.
First silver ring needs to be removed with help of tweezers as shown in below image..

Sony cybershot dsc w80 wont turn on or retract lens. My camera suddenly stopped working one day, do not recall dropping it, etc. My mother has the same camera and I tried her battery and it still doesnt...


Hello,

From your description, I would say something is stuck inside the lens mechanism of your camera. It could be a grain of sand or any small particle like a piece of fabric from a camera bag.

Hold you camera lens facing the ground and gently - moderately tap it repeatedly. You can also try spraying a compressed air into it.

Thanks for using Fixya!

Turn the power off and on again


Is it model with automatic cover of lens, like the DSC-T3 has? Problem is probably with lens cover. Try to move it (or help while it is trying to open/close) by your finger. It does sometimes if it is dirty (inside). I gues because you did not write the model name and number and on the picture is DSC-T1, but it has only 5.Mpix. If you have model with telescopic lens it is probably damaged gears of lens.

When i turn on my camera it says Turn the power off and on again


Hey, my camera the dsc- w80 did the same thing. When I turned it on, the lens opened 3-4 times and then it said "turn the power off and on again".
When the lens opened an closed, I pulled on it with my fingers and twisted it. I kept doing that: Turned the camera on and off, kept pulling and twisting the lens and now my camera works again!
