Stuck lens on Sony Cybershot DSC-S980

The lens on my Sony Cybershot DSC-S980 was forced in (or prevented from coming out; I'm not sure which). It's about halfway out. Now, when I try to turn it on or off, the motor can be heard inside, and it sort of twitches but it seems to be stuck. Is there any way I can fix this myself within a few days or will I have to send it in to be repaired?

If the lens is stuck, you might have to get a new camera. Or you can take it to a local repair shop. Or you can look it up online

You can't. The DSC-S980 is designed to store images (and videos) to memory, not to stream live video to another device.

I know this wasn't the answer you wanted to see, but there it is.

SOURCE: Cyber-shot DSC-S730 Digital Camera: how do i download pictures from dsc-s980 sony...

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program, such as Picasa ( http://picasa.google.com ).

Camera sony cybershot full HD 1080... lens got stuck out ... and looking for a solution


Sounds like the drive gear is extremely dirty, broken or the drive motor is damaged. You could try forcing it by pulling/pushing it when power is turned on/off but I would take it to a qualified service center.

Sorry but usually when the camera lens is forced shut, the gear mechanism will get out of sync. Usually even if it will open, you will receive a Lens Error

When I try to zoom with my sony cybershot 7.2 it zooms from 1.0 to 1.1 then says turn power off and on again. My son changed a setting and I can't seem to figure it out.


hi...The transmission system that moves the lens in and out has a problem with it's gears. There is most likely a gear or an actuator that has fallen out of alignment and is getting stuck at a certain point as the lens comes in/out.There is some disturbacnce of the lens arrangement that is preventing the lens from coming in/out.Any of these symptoms above could trigger the camera to shut itself off to protect itself from further damage.
thank u rate me!!!

My sony cybershot dsc-p200 lense is stuck.


Sony Cybershot DSC-P200 worked great then the lens stuck in the open position.
Read on this site some one suggested gently manipulating the lens and tapping it then turning it on. It worked!!
