Sony dsc-w5 lens not returniing

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

Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ...

Here's some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seem to work for less than 50% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try:

Sony DSC-W5 camera and the LCD screen is blank (white)


Remove the Battery pack from the Camera then press and hold the power button for 30 seconds.

Next, reinsert the Battery pack in the Camera and try to turn it ON. Make sure that the Battery pack is fully charged. If the LCD remains white then the LCD screen needs to be serviced or replaced.

I have a Sony DSC-W5. Camera sometimes displays


Hi, Siegmar!
No, it's not a battery problem. It's focus system problem - sounds like it stucks from time to time, could be some sand / dirt / dust inside it, focus is sensitive to things like that. It should be cleaned by a professional.
I work in a Sony service center.

Lens won't retract


According to Sony, storing the camera lens-down in a warm area for an extended period (a week) can help re-lubricate the retractor drive in cases like this.

This camera seems to have a predisposition to lens retraction problems. Try some gentle nudging, Even a small piece of debris can jam the mechanism, so it might just need a little push or pull.
