I would suggest you to contact any expert or SONY SERVICE CENTER because according to the problem you describe is technically difficult and due to jurk the gears of the zoom lens assembly may be broken misaligned, and there is a specific method to open the zoom lens assembly to change the gears, Or the if you want to repair it by yourself then you have to replace the complete lens block assembly, Therefore i would advise you to contact any expert for repair,

I have had this problem a few times with my DSC-S90. I refuse to pay money to have it fixed professionally since its probably 5 years old (If I'm gonna spend money it might as well be on a new camera haha). I removed the batteries and took the 4 screws out that hold the body together. I wiggled the camera apart (not completely) and then closed the camera, replaced the screws, etc. This fixed it the first time.

When it happened again, this fix did not work so I took the camera apart the same way and managed to pull it apart completely (BE GENTLE!.. yet firm). Then I twisted the base of the lense (turning clockwise) so that the little notch was aligned at the top. Put it back together and it worked. I really only advise doing this if your initial feelings are the same as mine that I mentioned above... otherwise you could break your camera (I'm assuming that's why they don't recommend you take the camera apart). If it happens again I'll try to post my step-by-step method in more detail... hope this helps though!

The lens will not retract on my Sony Cybershot DSC-S90 camera.


Hi there i like to inform you that its a lens guide pin problem. It is damaged or out of lens guide line. Thats why its stuck. The solution is only replacing the lens. But before that if you want to take a risk then on the camera and give a twist on the lens. Be careful. not much twist, just little. After that turn off / on the camera. If its working then fine. Other wise only the solution is contact with the service center and replace the lens.i am sure your camera lens position like a below mentioned picture.. before all this try to follow those step for luck.


1. Ensure batteries are fully charged.
2. Look carefully between the lens and the camera body for any sand, dirt or any damaged etc.
3. Try turning the camera with the lens facing down and shake to dislodge anything stuck
4. Try removing batteries and memory card, wait 5 minutes and refit the battery only.
5. Now turn on camera( with out card ) and see ,if working then fix the memory card & again turn on the camera. If working then fine .
Otherwise format the memory card and fix back in camera again & try. Make sure before format the memory card take a
back up all photos in your computer then format. If no luck then reset or restore the camera setting by pressing Menu key for 2 sec ..
in not done the press both Menu & self time key for 2 - 4 sec.

Wont turn on


I don't know if this will help, but try it. Install new batteries. You may have enough power to view the images, but not have enough power to operate everything. There are also microcomputers in the camera. You can also try removing batteries, WAIT 1 FULL MINUTE, then reinstall (making sure the polarity is correct). Hopefully either of these simple solutions help.

Sony Cybershot Lens Stuck inside!!!


I have the exact same problem with my Cyber-shot; the lens is stuck inside. After trying everything to loosen it (like wedging a razor knife between the sections, even dropping it or banging it against a book, etc) non of which I recommend, I finally got it open by PUSHING on the black telescoping section surrounding the lens itself. For some reason, this worked!

Cannot Take Pictures Anymore...


Hey BLOBO123,
I would have the camera looked at by an authorized service technician. You could bring it to a Geek Squad® precinct in a Best Buy™ store and they can send it out for service. The flap that holds the batteries in could possible be purchased from the manufacturer and is probably pretty easy to replace, but the lens is usually much harder and expensive to repair. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan

Hey Gregorious03,
You could try removing the batteries for at least one minute and then reinserting them, or you could try initializing the camera back to the factory settings under the setup menu. I hope this helps!

My sony cybershot dsc-p200 lense is stuck.


Sony Cybershot DSC-P200 worked great then the lens stuck in the open position.
Read on this site some one suggested gently manipulating the lens and tapping it then turning it on. It worked!!

Lens stuck open


I have to agree with one of the comments previously posted. I too had a Sony DCS-S700 and the lens was stuck open. Whenever I turned the camera on, the Sony Cybershot logo appeared and dissappeared, turning the camera off. I noticed the lens was crooked, so I moved it in the center direction and the camera worked again.
