Camera lens malfunctioning


If the camera is 1 year or less try for a warranty replacement.
If older - throw it away and get the next one
Theses thing dont get fixed.

Cyber SHot DSC-W80 lens will not close.


Your lens is jammed. Odds are it's unrepairable, but as a last ditch effort try GENTLY wiggling/twisting the lens as you attempt to power down or on.

Help!!!


Hello

there are tiny plastic gears inside and may have chipped or a small piece of sand got in causing the lens to jamb. "very fragile"

one solution is to ask a camera repair shop how much a lens mechanism would be to replace. (if cost is more than 1/2 of what you paid dont bother)

another solution is to have someone sell your camera on an auction site for parts, to make some money towards another camera purchase
