Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W70 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Lents problem Hello. I usually repair laptops and PDA's or things like that. However I did attemt to fix a broken camera, it was dropped down and the lents mechanism was damaged. I first managed to repair it by dissasembling half of the structure but after some time some probems reapeared. I dissasembled all the lents mechanism now but the main problem is that I can't put it back :). I have all the components, done that with care, but those small mechanical stuff are pretty hard to put back. Is there a way to assemble it back or does a service center could make that? I want to know this before I send the camera back to Sony service. Or they will try to make me buy another camera, or lents mechanism?

I dropped my Polaroid i735 Digital Camera once and the screen has been blurry...even the pictures turn out blurry. Is there any way to fix the screen?

You dropped it only once? Hmmmm ....

I don't think the problem is with the screen.
It's more like the lens can't focus properly anymore, and there is nothing you can do to fix it.

I'd take it to my local camera repair place, and give them the classic:
"Don't ask me what happened. I lent it to my baby-brother, and he said the camera worked OK."

They just may give you a free estimate.

Lens error says restart camera how to restart canon S3iS camera


Unfortunately a "lens error" message is not something that you will be able to fix. This error indicates a system failure and requires the camera to be sent in for servicing and repair.


My camera was dropped while looking at some pictures, now the lens is stuck and won't open or tun on. How do i fix this?

This usually means the camera is broken. When it was dropped the lens mechanism most likely broke. No one repairs cameras, so your best bet is to get a new one.

How do i fix the camera because it tried the things you guys said but it still doesnt work..can you guys help me please..when i try turning it on it says lens error restart camera

Lens error usually comes up when something is impeding the lens from moving. Usually this happens when something has gotten stuck between the sleeves of the lens or if the camera was dropped on its lens, causing the sections to get jammed on an angle.
The best thing to do is to call a Canon Repair centre or 1-800-OK-CANON to have your camera sent in to be repaired. If the camera is still under warranty and the cause of the lens error wasn't your fault, you won't be charged for the repair. If it was due to customer error, you will be given a quote for the repair costs before having the work done.

My lens is stuck inside and is not cuming out even i have taken out my batteries and have reset it.


The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel after dropping it. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

Hope the advise is useful.

Lense will not fully retract or extend pics are blurry


One of these reasons Causes the Problem:
  • Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism.
  • camera's been dropped with the lens extended.
  • he camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension.
  • the battery ran down with the lens extended
In Order to do somthing about that read this article.

Kodak camera dropped lens cockeyed stuck open

Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ...

Here's some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seem to work for less than 50% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try:

Lens is stuck

Try to find the part that is not straight and just pull on it a little to straighten the lens out and it should work. I did it to my camera and it works just fine now.

Dropped PDA

First of all, you must dissasemble the pda if you have some experience with that. There are some possible problems, one regarding the display connector to the motherboard and the other to the motherboard itself.Probably the display connector isn't atached firmly to the motherboard. There is a worse scenario where you may accidentaly burned some dc convertors on the mainboard when attemting to power on after the pda was dropped. If you can, dissasemble the pda, check the connectors, remove and reconect the back-up battery, and then, just to be shure, perform a hard reset.
