Sony cyber-shot dsc-w1 turns off when trying to take a picture

Will stay on if in "looking at picture/scrolling" mode. when turn on in picture-taking mode, if it focuses correctly or not, will immediately turn off. the batteries themselves are fine. thought maybe the battery housing & the connection, but it stays on in the viewing mode, just not the picture taking mode. had to remove the "gasket"/little ring of plastic between the "telescoping" parts of the lens (has become stretched & coming out & preventing the lenses from going all the way in or out). arghhh!

Hi!
The focus doesn't move as it should - it was stuck before you tapped it. Could be sand or something in it. I'm afraid you will have to give it away for a repair. You can contact your local Sony service center, but if they ask too much, I can offer you a very good price. My e-mail is [email protected]
I work in a Sony service center.

Hope this helps!

Hello

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. 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.

You can also have a look at THIS link.

Hope the advise is useful. please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance.

Regards
Andrea

When trying to take a picture up close it is blury.


Hi, For being up close to an object you want to put the camera in macro mode, there's a button with a flower on it, that indicates macro mode. You turn macro mode on and you're good to go for shooting photos up close to an object.

I found an online manual for your camera. Page 84 talks about the USB Mode Normal with the 4 dots underneath. It also show a troubleshooting area for this and it is on page 96. Hopefully this will get your camera working right again. Here is the link to the pdf manual. http://www.docs.sony.com/release/DSCW1.pdf

I've seen a lot of DSC-W1 cameras where the power switch/shutter button assembly goes bad. This is most likely the case.

Make sure you use good, high-power batteries. I had a camera that couldn't use cheap batteries, as they didn't have enough juice. Check the battery contacts in your camera tho see if there may be corrosion or shorts that may drain the batteries when you insert them.

Viewing is fine, taking pictures is not


This sounds like what started happening with my camera a few weeks ago. I found that turning the LCD screen off during picture-taking allows me to take pictures. I then have to go into review mode to look at the pictures I took using the LCD screen. Definitely not a great fix. I'm trying to locate a firmware upgrade that may solve it.
