Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W50 Digital Camera
A $ for every time I have typed this fix I would be a millionaire . THIS IS NOT A JOKE..
Turn the camera on and then slap it hard into the palm of your hand several times, Turn it OFF and ON again to see if it has cured the problem. Keep doing this until it does work. I was given this fix by a Sony Tech and he laughed that they charge $90 to do just that!
I did it to my own camera and it definitely worked. Some take more banging than others. If you used it at the beach then a grain of sand is caught in the mechanism. It does not take much dirt to jam the lens and cause this problem. BUT THIS FIX DOES WORK
