Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX1 Digital Camera
Camera remains stuck in extended (zoom) position despite re-set & several pow.e.r-offs. Also tried removing & re-instaaling battery - no luck
And you are sure, the battery does have enough power? because that could have caused the problem in the first place. But if it has enough power, you should check if anything could block the free movement of the lens barrel. Did you drop the camera, or bumped to anything, while the lens was out? When you don't see any damage on the outside, still it could be some damage on the inside, or a motor that won't work.
I should try to recharge the battery, and if after replacing the battery, the lens won't move, I should visit a service centre, or if a good photo shop is close by I would ask there with the camera in my hand, what they think of the problem.

You may have the same problem that i had. It does involve taking the camera apart. Not overly difficult - just fiddly.

This is what I found out on this and how I fixed it. This is all relative to my camera. What I found out was the view finder has a small detent which rides in a groove. When droped or bumped it falls out of the groove. To fix this I had to remove the lens assembly and realign the view finder guide. I was a fairly simple procedure.
