Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W80 Digital Camera
Since April, my camera cannot turn on for some reason. At first I thought my battery was dead after a day of taking pictures but after I fully charged the battery, the lens zoomed out a couple centimeters and is stuck there. My sister has a newer/different Cyber-shot so I tried out her battery as well but my camera still won't work. I believe the culprit may be indirect water damage because the day it stopped working, it was raining. My camera did not get rained on but it may have gotten dampened by the moisture in the air from the rain. Just earlier today I read on Sony's website that the camera should not be turned on for 24-48 hours if it gets wet but I tried to take a picture that same day (thinking the battery was just out, plus it didn't directly get wet). Is there any idea what's wrong with my camera? Any DIY solutions?

Would you like to open your pictures from your Sony Cybershot to your computer? Your cybershot cam is usually plug and play so you dont need a software for that. All you do is to plug in your camera to your computer's usb port using the usb cable. When the computer detected the new usb device, open a Windows Explorer. Right click your windows Start button, and choose Explore. From the list of Drives from the left, you need to find the Drive letter associated with your camera. Just click on that and it will show you the files on the right. The pictures are located somewhere inside those folders. You just need to click and drag them to your computer's local drive.
Should you have any questions, please let me know. Good luck!

It is best you send it to the service, water + optics + electronics is no good. Dont attempt to open and repair yourself, you do not possess the diagnostic tools that the service has.
