Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W50 Digital Camera
Recently my lens has been failing to contract and expand normally. It is stuck about 1/3 of the way out. The lens covers are also stuck half way out. When I am in picture mode, the screen is black and it prompts me to turn the power off and on. It repeatedly beeps in this situation. I can still review pictures that i have already taken.
Also try twisting the camera lens left and right (as in reving up a motocycle engine) do it a few time (5x). I did it and it works for my camera. yess

Sounds like a Sony rep is giving you advice here. It is simply amazing how many people have had this same problem will all models of cybershot. What is more amazing are the ones that buy another Sony when they find out how much it would be to "Replace the lens".
