This is a pressur on the camera problem. or the camera have received a pressur ore are dropped. in this case you must change the lens bloc. you can find the lens bloc on ebay to international sellers. in usa ebay seller its very probably that you find or the new lens bloc or a used. the price goes from 20 to 35 euro. to one entire lens bloc. the fixing i complicad. you must disassemble the camera and change the lens. if you want prove to fix it alone you can find a little help on german you tube. open you tube and write
obiektiv umtausch. so you can see if you are able to make this fixing. but i want say to you that the camera parts are very delicat. dont look the professionist..for him is all so easy.. for you that is not so easy. the camera are all different. the internal contact flats in any model are different, and have on the connection very very little arrest of the flats. if you brocke one of this arrest, you can keep the camera and the lens in the trusch. i am sorry that you are so far from here i make this fixage in italy with 50 euro

I have sony DSC-W290 Cybershot Digital camera. it has zoom of 5x. currently, zoom is working up to 1.4x.After 1.4x the more zoom i did the photo is showing blur(Not clear).

I would check and confirm that you are zooming using the optical zoom. It sounds like you may be zooming using the digital zoom, which would have this effect.

I have a sony cybershot w-290. I downloaded pictures to my laptop from the memory stick. When I turn it on I get a message to turn it off and back on again. My lens keeps going in and out. I show full...

Sounds like your lens has issues. Probably some debris/sand got into it or maybe it suffered a
Jolt of some sort. Whatever the case maybe you will need to get your Lens serviced.
Sometimes if you use a case the camera may have turned on inside the case and caused
lens damage.

The lens of my sony camera will NOT retracked. What can I do, I love this camera.

There is a capacitor dump that you can try.

Remove the batteries, wait 5-10 minutes.
With the batteries out, press and hold the power button for 10 seconds or so.
Put the batteries back in and your camera will start over (re-boot). You will know if it worked if you have to reset the date. But if that lens is really stuck you may be out of luck. The cost to repair it will exceed the cost of a new camera.
