1. turn camera on 2. lens expands 3. lense immediately retracts 4. lens error


If you hear a noise from the lens when you try to take picture or During turn on/off time then it's a lens guide pin problem OR Somehow its jammed or damaged. It's happens when the camera pressed or drop down during turn on mode or long time not use.

For the solution you need to follow the steps.

1. Turn off the camera and remove the memory card and clean the external body of the camera and make sure in place of the lens there is no dust or damaged sign.

2. Now turn on the camera without memory card & make sure the battery are fully charged.

3. If the lens not moving then give a little shake or thrust by hand ( carefully very slow) and then wait for a moment. If no changes then turn on the camera and give a little twist an anti clock side and leave for few second. It is risky ( Do it slowly at your own risk)

4. If nothing change then reset the camera setting from the menu option.


After following all steps, if the camera does not start working then you need to visit service center for replacing the Lens or Repairing. If you have any more questions ask me I fell happy to answer your question. Thank you.

Lens won't retract


According to Sony, storing the camera lens-down in a warm area for an extended period (a week) can help re-lubricate the retractor drive in cases like this.

This camera seems to have a predisposition to lens retraction problems. Try some gentle nudging, Even a small piece of debris can jam the mechanism, so it might just need a little push or pull.

My camera lense is stuck out and when I turn on the camera it makes a funny noise and says "lense error" on the screen. Is there anything I can do to fix it myself before taking it to get fixed?


Sounds like the camera lens is jammed. Before you take it to become repaired, try cleaning the crevices of the lens module to make sure there isn't any loose dirt or debris in there. Try applying very gentle pressure to the lens and see if it retracts or moves.
If it still won't budge, it's probably an internal problem with the mechanism retracting the lens, there's not much you can do but send it off to get fixed.
Cheers!

Jammed lens


When you turn it off, does the lense go up and down. If yes good news. while turning the camera off press on the lense very softly (up and down motion) until the lense retracts 100% or almost 100%. you may have to try a few times. if almost 100% retracted, push the lense a little harder in, untill it retracts all the way in. Turn it back on, it should work now. If you do not keep your lense clean you get that problem. After you droped it, some mechanical part on the lense may have broken or dislocated. In this case you have to open the lense inspect the parts, clean them and puth them back together.

Lens won't in on camera and makes clicking sound.


When you dropped your camera, some dirt got on the outside of the lense or some mechanical part of the lense broke or dislocated. If some of the mechnical part of the lense is damaged, you need to open up the lense from the camera and inspect the parts. Look for loose parts, then clean it and put it back.
I had the same problem with my sony Cyber-shop, but it was not dropped. somehow one or more small piece of dirt got on the outside of the lense. Here is what I did and the problem was fixed for good.
While turning the camera off, I pressed on the lense (up and down motion) softly. After a few times, the lense retracted 95% of the normal retracted position. I then, pressed the lense a little harder in untill it was fully retracted. It has been working okay since then.

You should always keep the outside of the lense clean and do not drop it.

Good luck

Jammed Lense)


Make sure the lense is not bent. If so, gently straighten it. This worked with mine.
