I had the same problem with my camera. I unscrewed the casing and removed the front jacket, I then eased the lens back into position. It will make a firm click when the gears reengage. Powered the camera on and manipulated the zoom. then powered it down and the lens retracted.

I did the exact same thing and my lens was at an angle too. The camera kept telling me to power off and back on. I removed the exterior panels with a precision screwdriver and just applied pressure to the extended lens with my fingers. It turned out I could have done the same thing without taking anything apart. It took quite a bit of pressure before the lens snapped back into place. I believe it's possible to break the lens this way, so just be advised.....but given a choice between trying that and throwing the camera away, I'd go ahead and try it. It worked for me. Best of luck to you!

I know this is not the answer you want, but when you dropped the camera you damaged the lens tube (housing) and your camera will require professional repair.

Zoom lense 'Slanted'


The parts (gears) are manufactured in plastics so once damaged it is very difficult to rebuild. Sony does not sell gears but complete lens assy. so best way is to find out what Sony charges for the repair. At www.camerarepairjapan.com the rebuilt of zoom repair was around $120 with 3 months warranty. Good luck. James

Dropped my camera bag & my 17-55mm Lens Now will not telephoto


The best way to get it done right after you drop the lense is send it to NIKON NY . They put the lense on a resolution bench test and it make sure the resolution is great ,. This lense is very criticial and it is a must or your wasting your money . The reason is this ., The lense is a wide angle and sometimes photographers have probelms with 17-55mm lenses and sub mirror problems . So its best to be safe than sorry .

Camera lense


May not be repairable, but try this, put a block of wood ( approx. 2in X 6in ) on the end that is pushed in, on a angle and while holding steady tap it out with a light hammer. It should pop the lens back to orig. position. Turn the focus ring and it should turn smoothly.
I have used this method many times with about 80% success rate.

If the camera was on when it was dropped you probably jamed the lense coil. The lense coil is what helps the camera smoothly pull in the lense and back out. Now, just to specify, what exactly are you having a problem with? Will the actual lense not go back into the camera when you turn it off; or can you not get your camera off zoom?
Let me know~

Wide Angle Lenses


wide angle lens aka fish-eye lens, means only the centre of your photo is clearly focused - especially in long distance scenery shots.
