Problem with the cap on the lens of digital camera SONY CYBERSHOT DSC P52

When I switch on the power button of my camera, the cap on the lens of my camera vibrates and opens only half way. The LCD displays the message "TURN THE POWER OFF AND ON AGAIN". Even after doing so , I face the same problem and see the same message again and again on the LCD. So, I am unable to take pictures. Please help me.

    When I turn on my camera the lens stays close, so I can't take any pictures. I tried turning the camera off than on again with still the same results.

    Same thing is happening with me. When I turn the camera on, the lens is not opening. My camera is an Argus QuickClix 5150.

I have a cybershot DSC W55. When the power button is switched on the lens extends and the "access" message shown on screen. Also amber light is flashing above screen. After a few seconds I get a message to power on and off again. I\'ve tried switching on and off a few times, removing battery pack and memory card, but nothing seems to be solving the problem.

Sony Cybershot DSC-P52: Lens Cover Failure


If the camera has recently been dropped you may have lens damage that is preventing it from powering up. If it's something simple, a power-down reset may help. Turn the camera off, remove the battery, let the camera set for at least 30 minutes, then replace the battery and power up. If it hasn't been dropped your problem may be due to weak/worn out batteries or corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and place them back in the camera and give them a full charge (assuming that you are using rechargeable batteries). This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, your batteries may need to be replaced or the camera may have a problem that requires professional repair.

You can clean the contact points inside the camera with a q-tip and rubbing alcohol. If this does not correct the problem than it needs to be repaired

Grinding or clicking noises generally means that the lens drive gear has been damaged. This usually happens if the lens gets hit (when the lens is in the out (operate) position), or if the camera is in luggage or a bag and the power button is activated by something else in the bag. If the lens does not have clearance to travel this could cause the gear damage.
These gears can be replaced but you will have to carefully weigh whether these older camera is worth the cost of repair.
Sorry! I hate giving bad news.

I cannot provide the answer but i think it may have something to do with the shutter mechanism. When you dropped it, something inside the mechanism may have bent or stopped. Don't take the camera apart yourself, take it to a specialist such as an electronics store. I hope this helps. Good Luck!
