    When powered up the shutter cover opens, the lens moves back and foward but the shutter motor continues to run the cover is open but trying to open & close. Now when I plug the usb cable in it works perfectly. It's a good wee camera and I really would like to fix it - any help would be most appreciated.

    Cheers

I have investigated my problem further and basically the teeth on the black cog which opens the lens cover have broken. This a very small component which attaches to the motor, so when you hear the motor, or if you have had grinding noises, it is the mechanism trying to operate the shutter but cannot beacuse the teath won't engage. If you have this probelm all the turning on and off again wont solve the issue. You might be lucky if only one of the teeth have broken but you are only postponing the inevitable which will happen when you least want it to. I have aChristening at the weekend and only hope I can get this sorted by then.

I will need a new shutter mechanism ( don't know the technical terms) but as yet I have to investigate where I can get one. Any suggestions anyone??

DSC-W80 zoom extends, shutter opens, closes, zoom closes, 5x, won't work


Hey kbcinc,
I would try taking the battery out and waiting a minute and then reinserting the battery. Another option you have is to try and reinitialize the camera, but you would need access to the settings menu on the camera and it doesen't sound like you do. To initialize the camera go to main settings 1 and choose initialize. If this doesn't work I would bring it to an authorized service center to have it looked at.

Sincerely,
Allan

Take a picture with the camera and download it to your computer. If the picture also shows up black, then this sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager. If so, Sony should fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please check the following link for more info:

Shutter not closing


This may or may not work, please don't get your hopes up. It's primarily a fix for certain Canon cameras that had their battery run down while the lens was extended. Try Fix #2 listed in the following Blog post:

I cannot provide the answer but i think it may have something to do with the shutter mechanism. When you dropped it, something inside the mechanism may have bent or stopped. Don't take the camera apart yourself, take it to a specialist such as an electronics store. I hope this helps. Good Luck!

Shutter problem


sand in the mechanism? Or other kind of wearout... If the lens cover does not open completely due to some mechanical problem, the camera will not work (there are switches to detect cover full open and full closed). Probably needs some repair, cleaning or replacing the cover gears
