Re: DSC P52 cybershot camera
I cannot provide the answer but i think it may have something to do with the shutter mechanism. When you dropped it, something inside the mechanism may have bent or stopped.
Don't take the camera apart yourself, take it to a specialist such as an electronics store.
I hope this helps. Good Luck!

If the camera has recently been dropped you may have lens damage that
is preventing it from powering up. If it's something simple, a power-down reset may help. Turn the camera off, remove the battery, let the camera set for at least 30 minutes, then replace the battery and power up. If it hasn't been dropped your
may be due to weak/worn out batteries or corrosion on the battery
contacts inside the camera which can
prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera.
Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and
wipe the camera contacts firmly with
a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush,
steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of
the batteries and place them back in the camera and give them a full
charge (assuming that you are using rechargeable batteries). This
the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, your batteries may need to be replaced or the
camera may have
a problem that requires professional repair.
I have the exact same problem with my Cyber-shot; the lens is stuck inside. After trying everything to loosen it (like wedging a razor knife between the sections, even dropping it or banging it against a book, etc) non of which I recommend, I finally got it open by PUSHING on the black telescoping section surrounding the lens itself. For some reason, this worked!
You have a jammed lens error the lens has to be repaired or replaced. You dont have to drop the camera for this to occur it can happen when ever the camera is in your pocket or purse. it accidently gets turned on and when the lens is coming out it is obstructed and strips the little plactic gears in the lens.
