Hello,

On another website I found the solution, given by Sandra Cooke.
"The lens is jammed and won’t open all the way. You have to bang on the camera and/or tug on the lens to release it from whatever is causing it to jam when it opens."

    Ensure also that you are using alkaline batteries and that they are not drained. In case try a new set of alkaline batteries(eg.duracell).

    Be very careful if you decide to bang the camera with your palm or to play with the shutter, all this methods involve a certain risk of damage for your camera.
    If you cannot fix the camera with all the above, I suggest contacting the nearest service shop.

My DSC-W55 can not zoom when i recording a video, how can i fix it?


You can't. The DSC-W55 does not allow zooming while recording a video. See the second bulleted item under "Using the zoom" on page 15 of the manual.

Sorry if that wasn't the answer you wanted to see, but that's the way the camera is.

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.

DSC-W80 zoom extends, shutter opens, closes, zoom closes, 5x, won't work


Hey kbcinc,
I would try taking the battery out and waiting a minute and then reinserting the battery. Another option you have is to try and reinitialize the camera, but you would need access to the settings menu on the camera and it doesen't sound like you do. To initialize the camera go to main settings 1 and choose initialize. If this doesn't work I would bring it to an authorized service center to have it looked at.

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.
