Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-S60 Digital Camera
Camera turns on but lens are stuck open.
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!
