Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W30 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Lens or CCD adjustments/ master reset, Somethin?!!!

I have a dsc-w30 that had some damage done to the lens. The lens would not extend or retract. It was actually bent out of place (don't ask, it's actually my niece's). So I found someone who sells the lens (CCD) assembly online and ordered it for about $50. I installed the lens assembly and now although it works the image seen through it makes everything look like a "negative". It's got digital vertical lines and the colors are black, white and purple. I was wondering if anyone knew of a CCD adjustment or a master reset to possible bring my image back to specs. The LCD display is fine as I can see old photos from the memory card on it. Thanks for the effort.

    Thanks for the offer of the premium package. To be honest I don't really see any solutions for anything on this site to even make me want to pay for someone to tell me to "bang my camera on it's side" as a fix. I have not found anything that even comes close to suggesting that there is an adjustment to the camera other than replacing parts. Help me out!!! Thanks.



    By the way the problem has not been solved and I don't know of anyone that has the same problem as myself.

    Hey, I appreciate the suggestion. Don't know why I didn't think about it. Anyway, I swapped the CCD's and I got my camera back to taking pictures. Thanks alot. That's the kind of tips I expect to see on a site called FixYa!!!! Good lookin out.

Dsc-w30 don't work and it always appear access what should will i do?


Lens errors (Access Errors on Sony's) are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ...Here are some troubleshooting steps that you can try that may (or may not) correct it. They only seem to work for less than 40% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty (or repair cost approaches that of the camera), they're worth that try. Some of the later steps do involve some risk to the camera, so carefully weigh your options before deciding to conduct them:

I have a Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W310 I trun it on it reads Turn the power off and on again WhenI do this it still reads the same thing


It seems you're having problems with the lens sticking (either not retracting or retracting then coming out then going back again, etc.) This "off, then on" problem is caused by some little cogs around the lens that easily slip out of place in this camera. The camera has trouble sensing if the lens is in or out, which is why it keeps asking you to turn it off then on again.

One solution is to give the camera a firm tap around the lens area. I don't necessarily recommend that since those cogs in there are obviously delicate. Other than that, repair is going to require opening up the camera and setting those little things back into place. I know that isn't the answer you wanted to hear, but it seems to be the only one.Please don't forget to rate me if satisfied.Thank you.

I have a sony dsc-s90. It will work fine for 3 - 5 min. and then a black screen will appear with "turn power off and on again". Once done, it happens again.


Usually a lens sensor. Clean with maybe some compressed air. If you trust your skills you could open the unit and clean cabinet where the lens retracts and extends.

Sony DSC W30 digital camera, lens unit problem


Hi!
If you're sure you didn't damage the lens flat cable which connect to the motherboard, the focus of the lens unit you bought on ebay doesn't work. You can simply replace the back part (with focus) of the new lens unit with your old one. It requires soldering.

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W30 Digital Camera Problem


I had the same problem. This happened because the lenses is jammed and these always happened when u droop the camera or press power button while the camera in it’s carry case or even on ur pocket which led to an obstruction of the lenses to extend probably. In my case my son put his hand on the lens and stopped it from extending.
The solution is try to tape the camera gently with the palm of ur hand, may be some dust is the cause, If it did not work take it to the service, I highly recommend that you should go to the agent, and u should know that it’s only repair of the lenses u don’t need to replace the lenses. I went to some one to fix the problem and he said that “it’s need a new lenses but when I emailed the agent of sony they called me immediately next day and asked me to go to there service and they make it for me for free because it was in the warranty period.
I hope this help, and I’m sorry for my bad English.
Please have a nice time

Lens stuck


Knocking the camera sounds like it works but may create another problem. I have had this problem with p-100 , p-200 and now the w50, I have found a small drop, of wd40 placed on both sides ,two opposing sides,of the lens ring where it extends from the body will work also. Don't spray, its a bit too hard to control amount deposited. Use a toothpick or a stick to dip and then drop the oil.

Make sure the battery is strong and not failing you and that the extending lens cover parts are clean. You may have gotten something in there.

Access appearing on screen


Hello!

Same mechanism problem here on a DSC-W50. For me, it did not work out to PULL the lens, but to push them. I just opened the camera and it tried to calibrate the lens with no success for about 4 times, after it just let them out and displayed the "power off and on your camera" message. The problem is that on this model of camera when the lens is out you cannot push or pull it. So I thought of a trick: when the lens is moving, you can pull or push them. Anyway, this is what I did: with the lens out, i placed the camera with the lens towards a soft surface (bed) and gently pushed on the side with the display. First times it didn't work, so I had to push harder and finally it worked and now my lens is aligned and the camera is working as if it were new. I suggest you try to push or pull the lens while it is moving GENTLY at first, and if it does not work, try harder - really hard! It will do a click at some time and work fine!
