My Sony Cybershot w120 camera and now the lense won't pop out

Hi, there is no need to buy a new camera. The lens is avaible as a spare part. If you get a help from an authorized service they will solve your problem

Records no picture as if the lense cap is on but its no I am just curious what part would be broken

Couple of things can be bad in this symptom.
Either CCD Imager is defective and not producing image signal or IRIS control is no working.
CCD Imager would be replaced in case its bad.
IRIS control can be repaired by qualified camera tech.
Need further info, let me know.

You could be missing a part or two, including the tiny little springs that hold the 'butterfly covers' in place.

If you google: darntoothysam and search your model number you will find the repair parts you need to fix your lens covers.

Good luck from Darntoothysam com
