Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T10 Digital Camera

1 Answer

It happens when you open the lens

On lens open (when you slide down the lens cover) it seems the lens cant find its resting point. seemingly its sliding in and out which is causing the vibrations and hum.

I notice it more when my battery power is low - anywhere from 30-60% left. I have also noticed its happens more frequently regardless of the battery power.

Also recently, I have noticed that pointing the lens toward the ground and giving one or two solid thrust in the same direction seems to help set the lens position, and solve the issue until the next time I slide the camera open.

Im close to just buying a new cam but disappointed. this is my second cybershot and my first one lasted almost 10 yrs. it never broke either - I was just tired (and slightly embarrassed) of the size and shape.

Hi!
It's a stabilized problem - happens to these cameras. You should contact your local Sony service center and ask how much will cost lens replacement. If they ask too much, you can contact me at toms.safranovs@gmail.com
I work in a Sony service center.

Revere automatic slide projector model P-888 It turns on and blower and bulb work fine but I do not know how to open the shutter on the lens to see the slides... any help would be appreciated.


Watch the slides are they loading?, it will very obvious to the ***** eye. The lens has no cover do that is not the problem. It is a common problem that the plastic slide loading arm breaks.

My Nikon Coolpix S3300 lens will only open half way then it closes and turns off. how can I open it


Hi
I only really know of 2 reasons for this to happen.
The first is rather obvious and is that the battery does not have enough power left to operate the camera properly, and it therefore automatically shuts down. This happened on 3 different cameras I've had if the batteries were wearing out.
The second and rather more difficult to solve is that something is obstructing the lens from fully opening, dust, dirt, etc in the sliding mechanism. If the motor won't go past whatever point is causing it to stick, then the camera will shut down automatically. The only thing I can suggest is a careful and thorough cleaning of the slider mechanism. It may be possible to remove the battery cover whilst the lens is partially extended, which would allow part of the mechanism to be cleaned.
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya
Cheers

Spilled soda on my camera sticky lens


Buy lens cleaner, to wipe off what you can, but in truth the lens should be dis-mantled to clean it properly not to mention the rest of the camera.

My Sony DSC T7 camera lens problem, When I slide the cover of lens, its says that "Lens cover Closed". so I am unable to take picture. Please help me. Thanks Anil


Mr anil there seems to be a problem with the sensor linked to the lens guard. Try to move the lens cover a few times and try to open the cover as much as possible just to initiate the sensor. If this does not solve the problem then you have to show it to a mechanic.
Regards.

Lense will not extend, or if it does it retracts after a short while. Batteries appear to be OK


After talking, without any success, to your expert I tried experimenting. It seemed like the sliding lens cover was the main reason for it to behave as it did. It turned out that the lens cover had a worn track and did not always operate the lens motor switch to open it, or pressure on the cover caused the lens to retract. All it needs is a new sliding cover.

Lens (lens cover?) only opens halfway


Hmm, this has happened to me too now. And just like the previous two posters it happened to me once before, but after switching it on and off a couple of times it corrected itself.

Now, about a month later, it has happened again. And this time it doesn't seem like it's going to open fully any more. Out of interest how long have others had their camera before this happened? How many photos had they taken?

S45 sliding cover fault


When you start to close the lens cover, a pin pushes against a spring to trigger the lens retraction sequence. You can easily take off the front cover to investigate this, and possibly adjust the angle of the spring to make it less sensitive. Just be careful not to yank out the ribbon that connects it all together.

Optio 450 Lens Stuck Problem


the lens cover gets stuck sometimes. It just needs a gentle touch and it opens up. Only happened once to me. In my case it happened after my daughter held onto the camera with her finger on the lens cover.
