Question about Agfa Cyber-shot DSC-W150 Digital Camera

1 Answer

I have a Sony Cybershot W150. I have already had

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

I have a SONY Cybershot DSC W150. When I turn it on the lens goes kut and comes back in several times, then I get the error message "Turn the Power Off and On Again", but doing that does not change...


Hello

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair centre for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

Hope the advise is useful. Please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance.

Regards
Andrea

My camera Cybershot DSC-W150 has a problem with zoom


Sounds like your lens might be stuck. Do not force it closed or pull it out for that might further damage parts that are an integral part of its sliding mechanism. http://www.teleplancamerarepair.com/Sony_Cyber-Shot_DSC-W150 can repair this for you and they also clean your camera as part of the repair.
if there were any parts you were not able to put together after you opened it , make sure to very carefully put those back to go along with your camera.
