Re: Dropped sony DSC-P73 need lens assembly
Your best bet is to get another camera from an online auction site. Sony will not sell you a part direct & those suppliers that will sell you one will want more than the camera is worth. I have fixed many cameras by buying online from auctions & you can often get the part you need plus a whole lot of extras (battery, charger, memory) for what a replacement part from a dealer will cost.

....they are very sensible..
all this type of camera have the same lens problem
if dropped or to much pressure apply on it when its open,dust in gear, sand and so...needs a tech..
The lens has probably got something in the retraction mechanism that is stopping it retracting. This can be something as simple as sand or grit or as a result of a drop or knock. In most cases the camera will need to be stripped apart to remove the lens assy before it can be repaired. This is best left to a professional camera repair shop.
Lens mechanism is broken due to dropped.
You need to replace lens assembly. If you know how to apart camera and replace lens assembly then let me know to guide you.
Or take camera to local repair shop for fix.
I also dropped this camera from waist high and the lens was stuck out and would not retract or let me do anything. I ended up having it sent to Sony to replace the lens and it cost me $200. I paid $300 for the camera to begin with but to me this was the BEST camera I'd ever had and was worth it. Before repairing it, I bought a new Sony Cybershot DSC-W80 since the original one I had dropped was no longer available. I was NOT pleased with the quality of the new camera at all and it was supposed to be better than the one I dropped. That's when I decided it was worth repairing the broken one and worth the cost.
Same problem guys!!! LENS HAD GOT STUCK - ABOUT ONE THIRD OUT after a knock. After lots of playing, and tapping and batteries in and out tried the whole twisting and pulling thing whilst turning off and on.
After a few minutes it came free and whole lens popped out. I then had to twist the outer part of the lens to straighten that up and allow it to fully retract. Works a treat now!
PS Tried the Sony online chat support - useless!!!!
