So 2 weeks ago my Sony DSC-W80 stopped working. Our friends dog ran
into the camera (in my girlfriends hand) full speed. It started opening
and closing a few times, and then giving the "turn the camera off and
back on" message. I read about tapping around the lens, etc. None of
I took off the camera body and carefully examined the interior of the camera. Turning in on and watching closely, I discovered the problem. Looking at the camera from the front, I saw a slider on the top right side of the lens that appeared to be jammed. I then saw a spring that was attached to the slider and free on the other end. Apparently when the dog rammed the camera, the other mount for the spring broke off (they are very fragile). The purpose of the slider is to adjust the viewfinder based on the zoom range of the lens. I simply removed the slider which had jammed when the spring came loose. Camera works flawlessly now. The only issue is that the viewfinder doesn't zoom, but who uses the viewfinder anymore anyway? Oh, and I have a screw leftover. What project isn't complete without having extra parts when you are done?
Hope this can help someone else!

I read some of the above reccommendations and instead of hitting or shaking I grabbed the lens and manipulated it firmly like I was trying to twist it in and out as I powered on and off, in a few seconds it started working again.

I am shocked and so happy to report that I took the advice of the posting and HIT and SHOOK the camera --- and it worked !! The lens was just stuck and buy pulling it and shaking it -- it's working again. Thank you to the previous posters.

I also put a bit of wd-40 on a q-tip and rubbed it around the lens, when it was extended. This seems to have solved my problem.

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.

This happened to me when I was on a cruise last November. After I hit the camera, it worked, but eventually it happened again. When I hit it again, it didn't work. I ended up returning it.
