Sony-DSC W1 lens not closing

Today I was taking photographs from my Sony DSC W1 cyber-shot 5.1 megapixel camera and suddenly I found that lens is not closing. I have turned it off and on several times but lens is not closing. Lens moves little bit but doesnt close. ALthough play mode is working and I can see the photograhs. Could you please help or suggest something?

Batteries may be low. Dont force it unless its your only option. You could strip a gear.

    Check this website, he claims the fault is with the ribbon connector from the memory stick reader slot. If you are brave, get crackin and try and reseat the ribbon cable. Like I said earlier, you have very little to lose.

Mine is a 8.1 Megapixel sony digital camera. The photographs were fine before. But the photographs are hazy now. What might be the reason.


Please set the quality to SUPER FINE on your camera
This will solve your problem

It also better to clean the lens softly using a soft cloth

Thanx and i hope this helps

I found an online manual for your camera. Page 84 talks about the USB Mode Normal with the 4 dots underneath. It also show a troubleshooting area for this and it is on page 96. Hopefully this will get your camera working right again. Here is the link to the pdf manual. http://www.docs.sony.com/release/DSCW1.pdf

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-F717 5.0 Megapixel


Hi Bella

That code means that the lens unit was unable to move from home position to switch on position.

These lens are extremely complex and I doubt if you could find someone able to repair the lens.

Therefore I suggest contacting Sony to find a accredited dealer to quote you on replacement of the lens.

My guess is it will cost half of what you originally paid for the camera.

Good luck.
