Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-P200 Digital Camera
I have had this camera for about 3 years. After the first year it went wrong and the background colour went from white to blue or brown at times. I sent it back to Sony and they said there was nothing wrong with it but the problem persisted. Now for some unknown reason the lense keeps going in and out when I turn on the camera and says turn camera on and off. When you do this it makes no difference. Anyone know what the answer is. I can live with the coloured backgrounds but I need this camera for Ebay. Thanks Denise
I too had this problem, and surprisingly hitting the camera worked.

I just had this same problem, DO NOT hit your camera or drop it or push the lens in, simply take the battery pack out and plug in the ac charger, THEN turn it OFF and ON, the lens should go in now. After all this you can replace your battery pack, it should work fine, it did for me. :)

I have the exact same issue. I've found some threads that said try using a duster can of compressed air to dislodge any foreign objects (even as small as a grain of sand) from the lens mechanism, but this did me no good. It made the issue less frequent, but it's still there. Other people suggested taking apart the camera and making sure the internal components are in their proper places, and not preventing the lens from opening and closing properly. Lastly, others have suggested hitting the side of the camera with your palm to knock it back into shape (some have even gone so far as to say to drop it on a carpeted floor).
