Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W55 Digital Camera
THe lens on my Sony DSC-W55 keep going in & out and then a black screen comes up saying "access" then "turn camera on & off" It just keeps going in & out, how do you fix this without going to a repair?
Mine camera did the same thing. i gave it to my techno neighbor guy and hours later he gave me my camera back and it was FULLY functional! he "hit it several times" thus jarring the lens back into place! (i could have gone w/o hearing that but, hey! it works!

It may be as simple as a dirty lens. If the lens is dirty it will act like it is out of focus. If that doesn't work and you want to repair it yourself there is a guy in South Carolina who has lots of parts for all the Sony Cameras. I bought my LCD from him for $39.00 plus shipping and it works perfect. I put it in myself and saved a ton. If you buy the part from him he sends you pictures of him taking the camera apart so that you can repeat the process when you install it. I think his email is firstname.lastname@example.org

Lightly hit your camera in you palm a few times. I has the same problem with my DSC-W55 and it works now!
