I have a Sony Cybershot DSC-S750. It will not turn off or on. The battery is full. It turned on earlier today and then suddenly just would not turn off or on. The lens is in the "on" position...


I have a similar Sony (DSC-L1) and have had the same problem. Remove the battery and SD card, vacuum (or blow on) the lens surround. Seems that grit has stuck between the lens and the cover.
If all else fails, try inserting the battery and gently pushing the lens the lens in. NOT guaranteed, but if this fails, try a photo dealer.

My lens on my sony cyber shot dsc w230 would not go back in the camera...why is this


Hello there,

Try to put in fresh newly charged battery on your camera.

With your camera turned OFF, hold the camera on your right hand with the lens facing the ground. Then hit the camera's base on your left palm as you push the button to turn on the camera. You might have to do this a few times. What happens is that there could be a grit of sand that got stuck between your lens' barrel and the camera's base, preventing the lens to retract freely. If the above solution does not work, you might want to apply a bit of force by twist-pushing the lens inside with your index finger while trying to turn on the camera. The idea here is to remove that grit out of the camera.

Please let me know how this goes. Thank you for using FixYa.

The lens due to some problems is not intialising ...... most commonly it may be dust particles getting stuck in the lens barrel ...... or the barrel itself is damaged ...... get it repaired from a repairman ..... as opening a lens is a difficult procedure ...and you may end up messing up the whole thing ......

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.

Sony DSC-S500


you are right it has defective mechanism,  a stucked mechanism is present. camcorder are smart it can detects error and shuts down itself for safety. earlier models dominoes the defect if the user is not quick enough to react when something goes wrong with the camera. You need professional service to fix it.
