    Well they will sell me the entire machanism for $40.. I can get another whole camera on Ebay for that. I only want the individual gears or perhaps a good used lens cover closure mechanism.

    The Lens does not open completely when you put it on the camera selection and it says to "turn the camera on and off again".

The timing gears are way of sync, the gears have to be re-timed in order to resolve the issue, a camera shop would be able to give a better idea of cost.

Dsc-P52 lens cover sticking


You need to go in and physically open the lens cover.
1. take out batteries 2. remove memory card + the small phillips screw.
3. remove the 3 remaining exterior screws. carefully with a small flat tip screwdriver pry the plastic halves slowly. eventually they will come apart. 4. at the bottom remove the small ribbon cable. 5. disconnect the mini motor wire, black and red. 6. unscrew the motor drive for the lens cover and then open the lens. 7. purchase a new lens cover motor. 8. If your screen still says turn off , then press menu and delete some files. good luck ! Work Slowly and carefully and ground your hands to a pipe somewhere before working on the unit. the static electricity could ruin the circuits !

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.

Turn the power off and on again


Is it model with automatic cover of lens, like the DSC-T3 has? Problem is probably with lens cover. Try to move it (or help while it is trying to open/close) by your finger. It does sometimes if it is dirty (inside). I gues because you did not write the model name and number and on the picture is DSC-T1, but it has only 5.Mpix. If you have model with telescopic lens it is probably damaged gears of lens.

Camera


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.

Shutter problem


sand in the mechanism? Or other kind of wearout... If the lens cover does not open completely due to some mechanical problem, the camera will not work (there are switches to detect cover full open and full closed). Probably needs some repair, cleaning or replacing the cover gears
