Question about Cameras
I have a sony sybershot DSC-W30 and it was dropped resulting in the lens being bent slightly stopping it from opening and closing properly.
Any suggestions as to how I can fix this? Or is it lost

I had the same problem. Your focus is stuck.
Try to free the focus from whatever (sand, dust, etc.) by hitting the camera. Start gentle, and if it doesn't work, hit it hard...the DSC-W30 is very rugged , that was my experience!
Greetings from Germany and good luck!

OK you are probably going to think I am loony giving you this advise But No I am completely sane!
Get a can of compressed air OR acces to a compressor at your local garage Get them to fit the triggered air blower tool to it.
Blow around the lens in all the extension joins the firmly slap it in the palm of you hand with the side of the camera making contact with you palm. Do the procedure two or 3 times and inbetween the slaps turn it on to activate the lens mechanism. I have now fixed about 80 of these cameras with this method. I obtained the fix from Sony who charge $90 to do exactly the same. Keep at it as it will eventually work. One tip, make sure the battery is charged before you do this.

Testimonial: "Thanks Man.... But before going for compressed air, I blew out some Air from Mouth, and then slapped it against my palm,It Worked,Thanks Man :) ThankU"
I have the exact same problem with my Cyber-shot; the lens is stuck inside. After trying everything to loosen it (like wedging a razor knife between the sections, even dropping it or banging it against a book, etc) non of which I recommend, I finally got it open by PUSHING on the black telescoping section surrounding the lens itself. For some reason, this worked!
