Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W55 Digital Camera

1 Answer

How do I fix my camera it goes in and out when I turn it on.

When I turn on my camera the lens goes in and out and then it says after a while turn power off and on again. And when I do that it does the same thing again. And I've tried pullin on the end of the lens gently and twisting it.

DON'T DO THAT!

This is not a joke........

Use a can of compressed air and blow around the lens while it is extended. Take a relatively firm approach with this problem slap the camera into your palm two or three times.
Not lens down in this case, but using the side or rear of the camera to make contact with your palm
Make sure you have the camera cord around your wrist so as not to lose it across the room.

Do this several times and turn it on and off till the message of tuen ona nd off no longer shows(if it ever did) and the lens retracts and works correctly. The compressed air will help remove any accumulated dust that is jamming the lens.
This is a sony tech fix and not a joke, they charge you $90 to do this and this fault is not uncommon in many of these small cameras
dust and dirt get taken into the lens bay ad eventually cause it to stick. Hence the use of comptressed air with the brutal ap

Nikon s220 lens error


The s220 seems to be very susceptible to lens errors, usually associated with the lens barrel being unaligned. It only takes the slightest bump/drop in many cases. Fixing it is a hit or miss solution. http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/fixing-lens-error-on-digital-camera.html Has a good list of possible fixes.

How do you fix a stuck lens on a Samsung SL202 digital camera?


Yes I have tried Fix#7. I tried to push the lens as I turned on the power but no luck. I tried to twist the lens and turned on the power but still no luck but this time i tried to pull the lens and power on and the lens goes out. I turned off the camera and the lens return to its place as it should.
Thanks for the tip...
