Question about Agfa Cyber-shot DSC-W150 Digital Camera
I have a Sony Cybershot W150. I have already had to send it in for repair while under warranty for a faulty lens (would not open/extend). Four months after getting it fixed, and now out of warranty, the same problem has recurred. The cost to repair is about $120, almost as much as a new one. Can anyone please give me some specific advice on how to go about making the repair myself. I have nothing to lose at this point. Thank you in advance. David
Ok David, be persistant with this seemingly kludge of a fix.
Use a can of compressed air and blow around the lens while it is extended. Take a relatively firm approach with this problem slap the camera into your palm two or three times.
Not lens down in this case, but using the side or rear of the camera to make contact with your palm
Make sure you have the camera cord around your wrist so as not to lose it across the room.
Do this several times and turn it on and off till the message of turn on and off no longer shows(if it ever did) and the lens retracts and works correctly. The compressed air will help remove any accumulated dust that is jamming the lens.
This is a sony tech fix and not a joke, they charge you $90-120 to do this and this fault is not uncommon in many of these small cameras
dust and dirt get taken into the lens bay and eventually cause it to stick. Hence the use of compressed air with the brutal approach
I have fixed around 200 of these over the last 2 years using this method. only 3 failed to respond
