Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-W1 Digital Camera
Hi I have the Sony DSC-W1-W12 and has worked beautifully until today. The lens will not retract when turned off or camera will turn on. I went and bought new rechargeable batteries thinking that could be the problem but it is not. Can anyone help me with this? Do I need a new camera? Thanks My cybershot dsc-w1 worked beautifully fine for about three years and now it shuts itself down for no reason, and the lens doesn't retract - in camera mode as well as in view mode. It doesn't happen all the time but it is highly annoying. I tried new batteries without success. First time ever I had a problem with the usually very sturdy Sony products! If there's more people with this problem there must be a recall?
I have exactly the same problem and I found out that new batteries solve the problem. I also think the battery charger bundled with the W12 version is not very good. You might try (I haven't yet!) a new charger which handles new types of batteries (Ni-MH).
