Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W55 Digital Camera
The lens isn't coming out anymore. The motor is still trying however. On the main screen it just says to turn it off and then on.
There is a mechanical displacement in your digi cam. May be due to shock or ****. Digi Cams are very delight, especially small ones. We have to handle it very carefully. Even a small **** can cause problem. Get it serviced as soon as to avoid any further problem.
Don't turn it on and off, it may lead to motor problem.
Please rate the answer if you find it useful.
Thanks for rating.......

If you have necessary tools and test instruments, know safety precaution in basic troubleshooting try the steps below to solve your problem.
Assuming that the disc is good.
1.Clean the lens. - Sometimes because of dust the lens can't read any disc. Try clean the lens by soft cotton buds. Be careful while doing this.
2.Replace the ribbon - Check the ribbon connected to the lens from the main board for scratch, damage. Once it has an open line then of course the lens can't read the disc. Also try to erase the contact by pencil eraser. If you've done the steps above and the symptoms still there then the next step requires you a little knowledge in soldering technique and reading the ohmmeter.
3.Check the motor - Check the motor that spin the disc with an ohmmeter. You can test it using the ohmmeter (x1) even it is connected on the lens assembly.Good motor - reading should be fairly high and it will spin. Bad motor- reading will drop to low resistance and will not spin.
Hint : 50% of my repaired unit the above parts are commonly caused of the problem.
If you confirmed that you have a defective motor then replace it with a new one. Before replacing the new motor you have to check the clearance of the disc holder with the old one. The clearance should be the same as the old because if not the lens will not read the disc if it is too far or too close.
If the above steps didn't cure the problem, high chance that your optical lens was faulty.
