Question about Sony Cybershot DSCW80 7.2MP Digital Camera with 3x Optical Zoom and Super Steady Shot
Bang the camera on a hard object.... sounds crazy but it worked for me!

Hard to believe but I had same problem, gave it a good rap on a pad of paper and it works. So I went and got my Cannon PowerShot that was totally dead and gave that a good rap and now that works perfect. Hard to believe but true

I had the same problem, the lens wouldn't come out and then I tried hitting the camera a few times on my mouse pad (on the right hand end, if your looking at the camera) and the lens bloody opened!!!
So happy as I'm travelling and couldn't afford to buy a new camera. Problem could be sand related. Sound really gritty when the lens does open now but it works fine now.

You have to be kidding me. i am on vacation right now and i soon as i arrived my camera had the same problem. below someone said bang the camera on a hard object and it will work. i just banged mine on the couch and it seriously worked. TRY IT.

I know it's crazy... i've tried hitting it on my mousepad, and it worked ! The infamous "technical bang.."

WOW! I just posted this question - sorry didn't see this first - and tried the "bang on a hard object solution". I can't believe this worked! I was in Tahiti for 8 nights and it stopped working on my last night there (thankfully). I was ready to get a new camera, but for now, I don't have to. Thanks, everyone!

Eu fiz isso que o nanascoolert falou e funcionou...
porem o problema as vezes retorna...
acredito que isso seja problema de limpeza...
porque nunca deixei a maquina cair...
