SONY DSC-W50 6megapixels camera When I turned on my camera the projectile lens, housing projected in and out at intervals and the monitor was not showing the usual data entry. I took this to SONY who were explained costs over and above the value of the camera. They said it was a sick case with dust! This camera is now 1.5 years since purchase, and had been working wonderfully until 2 or 3 days ago, but I am probably not alone with the many disillusioned when it comes to the cost of repair!

Re: Faulty camera CYBERSHOT
Today, every thing is being manufactured as disposable. All the manufactures want to sell their products and dont want to provide cheap repair facility. Thats why Sony or other company always tells cost over n above the value.

Hello, Symptom shows your DSC-H3 has problem in Lens Mechanism and you need to replace complete lens. If you want to replace it by yourself, Its part number is as follows... A-1359-213-A LENS BLOCK ASSY It is available in Parts Store on $150 Or contact nearest Sony Service Center for replacement.
thats normal. it just doesn't have enough power to bring the lense back in. once you charge your battery and turn it on the lense will automatically come back in and then out for you to take a picture.
I also dropped this camera from waist high and the lens was stuck out and would not retract or let me do anything. I ended up having it sent to Sony to replace the lens and it cost me $200. I paid $300 for the camera to begin with but to me this was the BEST camera I'd ever had and was worth it. Before repairing it, I bought a new Sony Cybershot DSC-W80 since the original one I had dropped was no longer available. I was NOT pleased with the quality of the new camera at all and it was supposed to be better than the one I dropped. That's when I decided it was worth repairing the broken one and worth the cost.
