    The lens resumed full travel but the camera still says accessing and then turn off and on and never starts up and works. The lens fully extends and closes though.

Use bit more force to push or pull the lens as lens has been damaged. If applying bit more force lens goes to working, u saved $$$ otherwise, new lens option is always available at Sony repair shops.

My Sony cybershot dsc-w55 won't take pictures! I


Your lens is stuck due to either being banged or bumped or there is dirt/grit inside the lens gears. The lens needs to be replaced, but buying a brand new lens is out of the question. Sony will charge $125 just for the lens assembly, it's crazy.

A refurb lens can be installed for about $75 including return shipping. You should check the replacement cost of a used camera and see which is cheaper in the long run.

Hope this helps!

I have a cybershot DSC W55. When the power button is switched on the lens extends and the "access" message shown on screen. Also amber light is flashing above screen. After a few seconds I get a message to power on and off again. I\'ve tried switching on and off a few times, removing battery pack and memory card, but nothing seems to be solving the problem.

Its not taking the picture


Hi

It sounds like your lens is jammed and needs to be repaired or replaced and thats why you can't take a picture.

I know a place that can install a new lens in your camera for a very affordable price, just search 'darntoothysam' on Google and you will find it.

I dropped my DSC-W55 camera and it the lens won't go back inside


It sounds like maybe your lens is jammed. You may want to try and fix it yourself. If you want to repair it yourself there is a guy in South Carolina who has lots of parts for all the Sony Cameras. I bought my LCD from him for $39.00 plus shipping and it works perfect. I put it in myself and saved a ton. If you buy the part from him he sends you pictures of him taking the camera apart so that you can repeat the process when you install it. I think his email is gerald.ray@aa-ark.com
