The drop likely damaged the lens tube (housing) or jarred the zoom mechanism off of its track. Either condition causes the camera to shut down to prevent further damage. There is no safe DIY fix, but the camera can be professionally repaired. Contact Sony through their web site or visit a local camera shop (not the department store) and get a repair estimate -- you will need to decide if the camera is worth the cost of the repair.

Why doesn't it recognize the correct battery?


hi,
If your camera do not recognize the original battery, it means some wrong information is stored in its software data, to override this please open the camera take out the small memory backup lithium battery, short the battery contact , after a five minutes connect that battery again.

It will not turn on// green light flashes then goes out.


You have a problem with the CCD circuitry, and this will require a service, not something we can do on this forum, unfortunately..

I have sony cybershot dsc 10 digital camera but it dsn't power on batery charge is full


Hi,

Please make sure that the Battery in the Camera is fully charged.
Please check if the issue is with the battery charger. Make sure that the Charge Lamp in the Battery Charger is lit when connected to the Wall outlet.
You can try recharging the battery pack for almost 6 hours as initial charging.
If you've another battery pack, try using the same to check if the issue is with the Camera or with the battery.
You can also try turning on the Camera by connecting the optional ACL-S5K AC Adapter. This Adapter can be used for turning on the Camera, it cannot be used to charge the battery pack. For charging the battery in the Camera, the supplied battery charged needs to be used.
If the Camera is not turning on using both the AC Adapter and new battery, then the Camera may require service.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Hi my battery won't charge on my Sony Mavica...daughter dropped it about 2 feet onto carpet...charge light is flashing


the charge light flashing means the battery is damaged or very dead .. some charger will not initiate charging if the voltage gets too low ..thats a safety feature ... if those are the original batteries then they are past due for replacement anyhow ..

Lens stuck in the out position. Have switched off, taken out batteries, tried again...


The lens has probably got something in the retraction mechanism that is stopping it retracting. This can be something as simple as sand or grit or as a result of a drop or knock. In most cases the camera will need to be stripped apart to remove the lens assy before it can be repaired. This is best left to a professional camera repair shop.

MY DAUGHTER'S SONY DSC-W55 CYBER-SHOT WILL NOT TURN ON


It seems bad. Usually problem with PCB. Ask your daughter if there was possibility to get even drop of water (rain, drink...) inside - in that case you should let the camera dry, but your chance is not big. I´d like I was wrong...
