Hi

You probably have a faulty lens unit. You can make sure of this by checking that the spaces between the two rings that extend forward at switch on has the same distance between each other.

If it is not the case, your lens is damaged and needs to be replaced.

It normally costs about 1/3 the price of the camera, so it should still be worth replacing.

Bear in mind though that only Sony Service Centres can help you as the y need to setup the new lens adjustments with Sony specific software.

Hope this helps.

My Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W70 Digital Cameras the lens won't came and the screen showa message turn the power off and on again


The non-functioning of the camera can be a fault in the shutter, zoom or auto focus sections and may be due to the failure of the Main control system or the drive. A simple was is to reset and we can try by removing the battery and card for some time. Now replace only the battery and while switching power ON, tap the lens hood on the palm of your hands so as to disengage any dirt or mechanism being struck. You can spray a degreasing spray on the lens hood sides and also assist the lens as it tries to come out, attempt to pull it out slowly while powering ON the camera. Also in some cases you can slid a thin film/paper on the lens hood sides to wipe out any dirt.

Tips to open and check for common faults: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v2Mj3Qp3xYU&feature=related
Use some air to blow between the lenses to dislodge any sand particles struck inside. Unless you are familiar with handling of small devices must you try and open. If so check the voltage on the motor drive check the auto focus and Zoom drives, it must be free with manual movement. If jammed the motor can be removed and released. If none of these works then you can think of taking consensus with the service centre.
Get estimate before you decide. It will be good to have it checked at the authorised service as you do not have to run around for spares.

Camera lens will not come out all the way, and the screen says to turn camera on and off again. and absolutely nothing happens.


I brought my cybershot 7.2 to the beach, and stupid me did not have it in a proper camera case, and I am sure that a grain or two of sand got into the zoom lens. I used a sewing needle to no avail to try to probe this out, and in the end all I did was use my fingernail to help pull the zoom lens out, when turning the camera on, this worked perfectly after a few try's and the camera is now functioning as good as new.

The grain(s) of sand were obviously preventing the motor from opening the zoom lens.

Hope this helps.
