Hello

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

Hope the advise is useful.

Regards
Andrea

The lens keeps on moving in and out and there is a sign on the screen to turn off and back on the camera... I have a sony cybershot dsc-w55


I have a cybershot DSC-P5 that was doing this. The plastic ring around the lens that is glued to the casing had become warped. We simply popped it off, brushed/scraped the excess glue away and put the casing back on, now it works fine! Just store it properly and keep an extra eye out for dust coming in where the lens used to be.

It happens when you open the lens


Hi!
It's a stabilized problem - happens to these cameras. You should contact your local Sony service center and ask how much will cost lens replacement. If they ask too much, you can contact me at toms.safranovs@gmail.com
I work in a Sony service center.

When I turn my Sony Cybershot 7.2 mega pixel camera on, the lens keeps going in and out and the message "Turn the Power on and off again" shows up on the LCD screen. When I turn the power off and on again,...


Hi,


Error: TURN THE POWER OFF AND ON AGAIN is displayed on the LCD screen when the Lens Mechanism is stuck or when affected by any malfunction. If turning the power on and off again does not resolve the error message, try doing a power reset and Initialize option.

Performing a manual power reset

Turn off the camera.

Remove the battery pack.

Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds.

Allow the camera to remain without power for 60 seconds.

Reinsert the battery pack.

Turn on the camera.

To reset the Camera back to factory default, select the INITIALIZE Option from the SET UP1 Menu of the Camera to OK.This will set the user defined settings back to factory default. The images and videos will not get deleted.


If the issue persists, service may be required.


Thanks,

KenSolutions

Turn the power on and off again


I fixed this issue with my Sony Cybershot by gently (carefully) hitting the camera 3 times against a carpeted bench with the lens retracted and the camera turned off. It seems the lens gears were stuck. Now the camera works fine again.

You have a jammed lens error the lens has to be repaired or replaced. You dont have to drop the camera for this to occur it can happen when ever the camera is in your pocket or purse. it accidently gets turned on and when the lens is coming out it is obstructed and strips the little plactic gears in the lens.
