Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-N2 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Brought my cyber-shot to the beach and had it in a camera case. When I got home it was a little bit moist on the inside of the case, and the lens would not open at all. On the screen it said to power the camera on and off again. There were a few grains of sand around the lens so I gently tapped in and it opened. Now, although it is opening I still cant take pictures. It is still giving me the same message to power it off and back on. Is this fixable?

How long since this happened? Has the camera had time to fully dry out?
Open all orifices, and let it sit on a dry paper towel, or cotton towel somewhere safe until it is fully dried out. Remove the batteries from all locations before you let it sit like that.
Then when you are certain it is completely dry, try it.

Automatic lens cover does not fully open


1. there's a problem inside of the camera especially the gear if the camera fell down or applying excessive force to the lens part. The gear was broken thats why it was not fully open and having weird noise inside.
2 if you went out to the beach or place a lot of dust.possible the sand or dust goes indide of the lens gear and cause of stuck up and not fully open the lens.sometimes becuase of this the gear was damage or broken and you need to bring to service center.

Lens won't retract.


Due to the tight tolerances inside the lense mechanism - small bits of sand or lint may become trapped in the mechanics.

It is advised to take the camera to a camera repair shop and have it disassembled and cleaned.

There are many small parts and intricacies that will render it totally useless if not done properly.

Camera lens will not come out all the way, and the screen says to turn camera on and off again. and absolutely nothing happens.


I brought my cybershot 7.2 to the beach, and stupid me did not have it in a proper camera case, and I am sure that a grain or two of sand got into the zoom lens. I used a sewing needle to no avail to try to probe this out, and in the end all I did was use my fingernail to help pull the zoom lens out, when turning the camera on, this worked perfectly after a few try's and the camera is now functioning as good as new.

The grain(s) of sand were obviously preventing the motor from opening the zoom lens.

Hope this helps.

Lens won't retract


According to Sony, storing the camera lens-down in a warm area for an extended period (a week) can help re-lubricate the retractor drive in cases like this.

This camera seems to have a predisposition to lens retraction problems. Try some gentle nudging, Even a small piece of debris can jam the mechanism, so it might just need a little push or pull.

Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-S40 Digital Camera- lens is stuck


The lens assy. has gone bad if it is making noise. If it is only stuck and not moving the power supply link is broken and supply is not reaching the lens assy motor. May be the SMD fuse would have blown in power supply circuit. May be you can seek the service manual from me and this calls for highly skilled workmanship and tools.
