Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-W5 Digital Camera
Camera is turned on and lens extends and then the alarm sounds followed by msg detailing to turn the camera off. The lens will not retract, it tries to but does a in - out motion attempting but fails to retract. Bat's are ok and even resetting the camera has not helped! Could you provide any assistance to fault finding the problem please? Doug
