There are 3 pins in the camera lens that slide in grooves allowing it to move you have knocked out 1 or more.
only an experienced tech can attempt fix , camera must be totally disassembled.

Dropped camera and now the lens is stuck out,when i turn it on the screen says turn power on and off again.i do that,but it keeps saying it still and camera makes a weird noise when i turn it on,and lens...


Bummer huh? I dropped mine a while back and damaged my battery cover!

I would try...taking out the batteries and reinstalling them! This may reset your camera?

Otherwise, I would do a web search and type in:

Sony Cyber-shot Camera DSC-W50 troubleshooting

Hope this helps you get your camera working again!

Kind Regards!

Lens is stuck half out and when I hit power, it says to "turn off and back on again" but nothing changes

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.

Zoomlens stuck

Examine the lens carefully. you will see that the outer lens is out of line with the inner lens. . hold the camera firmly with one hand using the fingers of the second hand firmly nudge the outer lens back in line. reinsert battery and test.
Good luck,

I dropped my Sony DSC-W50 camera with the photo shot mode

Some problem in the lens system.
Try to either push in the lens more, or pull on it, if the lens is out at all.
If it continues, sell it for parts, as is on a site such as Ebay.

Lens stuck

Knocking the camera sounds like it works but may create another problem. I have had this problem with p-100 , p-200 and now the w50, I have found a small drop, of wd40 placed on both sides ,two opposing sides,of the lens ring where it extends from the body will work also. Don't spray, its a bit too hard to control amount deposited. Use a toothpick or a stick to dip and then drop the oil.

Sony DSC W50 - lens stuck

The lens mechanism is wrecked. I guess a repair will cost nearly as much as new camera- get your 'friend' to treat you.
