Re: digital camera

Lens will not retract completly on sony cyber shot DSC-W55 after being dropped while lens extended

Only try this if your camera is out of warranty. Turn camera on, and extend lens fully, now grab outer most element and pull out. Sometimes you can reseat the lens in the track at the correct point. I used to do this all the time to my older digital cameras.

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.

Lense will not retract

Try to move it manually. If not succesfull, I am afraid you have to let lens replace.
