Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W70 Digital Camera
What you are seeing is there is some sort of problem with the lens, it could happen in many different ways such as sand or dirt in the lens gears. If the camera is less than a year old, call up Sony and get it fixed under warranty.
A few other solutions would be to tear it down and clean it yourself and see if that clears up the problem, or buy a defective camera online and make one good camera from the two if you can do that sort of thing yourself, or have it repaired by somebody else.
Don't bother trying to send the camera to Sony if it is out or warranty (though you can call them and verify what I'm about to say) because they will want $150+ to do the repair for you. Parts are not cheap to buy from them.
I know of one very affordable digital camera repair business... because I own it. The name is Darntoothysam, feel free to check us out, we are on that big auction website also (I don't plug their name for free), our seller ID is 'darntoothysam'. If you Google "darntoothysam" you will find us.
We have your repair listed as a package in our store for about $70. This covers a new lens, and return shipping of your camera! We even give a 45 day warranty on parts and labor. If you think you can use us then please check us out, even if you need to ask more questions then please feel free to contact me.
Hope this helps,
