Having problems with your Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-S90 Digital Camera ?

When i turn off my camera sony cyber shot DSC-S90 the zoom wont retract and a word appear in the screen turn off and on again..any idea what's going on with it?


Answers :

Sounds like you have some grit or gum on the lens barrel. This will cause the lens to stick in the partly closed position. Clean the lens barrel and try again. A rag moistened with methylated spirits may be needed. The rag must not be wet as we must not harm the special grease used in the lens.
If this fails it probably means an very expensive repair, or replacement.

Everything else on the screen is fine (ex: when I go into menu, the menu appears normally on the screen, when I press the flash button, the flash appears on the screen...)But the images from the outside world don't. Instead, there's either just black, or fashing black and white.

When I turn the camera on or off and the lens goes out and in it feels like it is binding up - like gears that are not aligned properly. I can see and feel that the lens is struggling to extend and retract. Sometimes the lens will not retract at all and I have to turn the camera off again. The problem appears to be getting worse. Any ideas?

Around a few dats ago, I was showing friends pictures from a holiday to America, when it appeared the batteries had run out, but the lens never retracted, which it usually would do. I attempted to turn the camera on again, and it turned on for a split second, but i never thought to look at the screen for an error mesage, but it just turned off again.
