I have a sony DSC-W170. It was dropped and now

I have a sony DSC-W170. It was dropped and now the lense will not shut. I tried to turn it off and back on. When I turned it back on it keeps telling me to turn the camera off and then turn it back on. The image is very blurry. The camera will not take any pictures.

I had exactly the same problem with my Sony Cyber_Shot. Here is what I did and the problem was fixed. I cleaned around the lense. While I turned the camera off, I pressed down the lense very softly (some up and down motion). After a couple of times, the lense retracted almost completely. Then I pressed a little harder until the lense retracted 100% as normal times. I turned it on everything was back to normal. If the lense does not have mechanical problem, you should be able to do what I did.
If there is no mechanical problem, most likly some dirt got on the sides of the lense while it was open. Try keep it very clean always.

Good luck;

Lense cover sticking on my sony cybershot w170


Most likely what is wrong is that the lens cover has become sticky, or clogged. Have you spilled a soda, etc. on it recently?
The best thing to fix this would be to aim a canister of compressed air directly in-between the lens fover and the lens, blowing anything out. If this doesnt work, then manually push the cover back with your fingernail and try again with the compressed air.

I have sony dsc-w170 how can i use it as web cam on my laptop


Unfortunately you can't. The DSC-W170 is designed to store images (and videos) to memory, not to stream live video to another device.

Sorry that wasn't the answer you wanted to see, but there it is.

I lost software CD Sony dsc w-170


This camera does not need software to transfer images or music, try the method listed at Sony website, if that does not work , there may be something wrong with the Operative System.
