Hi

What you are seeing is a generic message that means 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.

A couple solutions would be to either buy a defective camera online and make one good camera from the two if you can do that sort of thing yourself, or secondly have it repaired by somebody.

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,

Sony DSC-W70 digital camera - Lens attempts to open when pressing the power button but fails with a message to turn off and back on again. Bought a new battery and still does the same thing. Sometimes...


That's a common problem on Cybershot cameras, happened to me twice, the solution is to get it to a camera shop for repair.
The cause could be dirt or a malfunction on the lens extending mechanism.

Sony DSC W30 digital camera, lens unit problem


Hi!
If you're sure you didn't damage the lens flat cable which connect to the motherboard, the focus of the lens unit you bought on ebay doesn't work. You can simply replace the back part (with focus) of the new lens unit with your old one. It requires soldering.

If the lens is stuck, you might have to get a new camera. Or you can take it to a local repair shop. Or you can look it up online

Turn camera off then on again?


I posted and looked around more online- I found this, did it and it worked! I just held camera with lens upright and used my left thumb and applied pressure when turning off with right thumb.

"I have dsc-w70 with lens stuck out . When you turn it on , you will see a message turn the power off . I've just fixed this morning without any tool and it took only a second . When i turn the power off with my left thumb , i used my right hand to squeeze the lens with little push it in , it will be back to the right position it should be . My camera is working great now like before . Do not affraid , hope everyone can do it . Good luck ."

System error sony DSC-w70


Try re-charging your battery or you may check your memory stick. If the cause of this problem is by an accidental drop of the device, then may be you suspected right on the lens. It may cause dis a line of gears... ^_^

Sony DSC W70 lens stuck!


This is what I found out on this and how I fixed it. This is all relative to my camera. What I found out was the view finder has a small detent which rides in a groove. When droped or bumped it falls out of the groove. To fix this I had to remove the lens assembly and realign the view finder guide. I was a fairly simple procedure.

DSC-w70 stuck lens


there actually is a little gear inside that moves the lens and since you already opened it make sure the gear is there and moves. LOTS of problems with these cameras....
