Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W55 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Focus on zoom

My wife dropped the W55 and the lens assebly was loose.  I sent for a new Optical unit with the zoom motor included.  I replaced it without incident and it seems to look good on the LCD, but when I zoom it in the picture returned/stored is blurry.  It seems like there is a lot of movement to it, but I was holding still.  Is there any adjustment that I need to make?  The CCD was not included so I just swapped it from the old one.

It is not the ccd problem .
the lens adjustment and ccd have no relation.actually when optical unit was replaced ,it is not fixed properly and due to internal lens de-adjustment.you would find blurry images on zooming.
it must be re-adjusted.

I have an Olympus digital camera and the preview shows blurry screen, I can't take pics, how do I fix this?


Appears that the focus motor is not working. Part of the optical lens assembly which as has a focus, zoom, and exposure motor to control all.

Replacing that assembly in the camera is nasty and expensive due to just the labor alone - and the part is not cheap! Think you are better off replacing the unit - not cost effective.

your camera has lens unit defective. Most of case it is sand or dusty cause the problem in the shutter unit and focus and zoom unit...In local repair shop would charge you about $45 to $65. (Part 40, labor 25) good luck with you!

Lens will not retract completly on sony cyber shot DSC-W55 after being dropped while lens extended


Only try this if your camera is out of warranty. Turn camera on, and extend lens fully, now grab outer most element and pull out. Sometimes you can reseat the lens in the track at the correct point. I used to do this all the time to my older digital cameras.

When the camera is turned on , the zoom tries to adjust twice while the displays says" access" then it Says" Turn the power offand on again" Following the instruction does not solve the problem, we can see...


Hi,
The error "Turn off the power and on again" shows when the zoom motor start malfunction, If you want to repair by yourself and have experience then change the optical zoom motor it will reduce your cost. Otherwise you can change complete lens block assembly, both part and description is given below for your help and convenience:

Part No. Description
1-788-363-11 OPTICS UNIT (ED13A) (complete lens block assy)

2-673-648-01 ZOOM MOTOR UNIT

You can contact any expert or Sony Service Center to change the above said part and your camera work fine again.
Thanks for using fixya.

Lcd window all out of focus..like a cirsus mirror


Usually it is from a smudged lens. Clean the lens and is if that helps. If it is still out of focus check your zoom. Cameras have to types of zoom, optical and digital. Once you reach the max optical zoom the digital zoom kicks in. Digital zoom isn't that great quality because all it is doing is bring the dots in frame closer. If zoom is all the way in and still out of focus check to see what type of setting you are on. Even though you put it on auto there are cameras that have other settings while on auto that you can change the colors and other stuff like b/w, sephia, etc. If all else fails then I would have to say that your lcd is wearing down and needs to be replaced.

All zoom pictures blurry


I am sure your lens is clean but from what you describing you have a definte problem with the lens assy which includes the autofocus sensors. Sometimes is can be a faulty focus motor , dirt between sensor and outer lens. Camera needs to be stripped and checked up.
