Literally a repair, without purchasing any spare parts. If you accidentally broke your Cyber-shot lens then here’s how to fix it.

All you need is patience, a small screwdriver and Superglue. It’s a big help if you take photos as you proceed; even better to video it, especially when you dismantle the lens system. Cursory examination of the parts may not reveal which parts go where, as I found out, you may need some vital clues.

In retrospect, you may not need to open up the centre piece with…

  6. Hello, I am Tomi from Croatia, i was reading those coments and one guy said that it has to vacum the lens in order to repair the constant open-close loops on camera and he was right i vacumed it firstly with medium vacum force while coninuously pressing on/off button, lots of tiny peaces of dust, even peaces leafs came out, and then it worked, anyway i think its only temporary solution as for complete clean you need to dissassembly the camera completely….

    vacum cleaner is the camera saviour and in the future keep your camera in a box or small camera bag…

  7. Hi, I was trying to repair the zoom of a WX10 but I regret when I saw the lens is complicated, so I went back to arm the camera. before disassembling, the camera worked ok for photos without zoom. Now I have a problem. when I turn on the camera, the lens exits normally. I can take video, but I can not take pictures, and when I'm pointing the camera and have it in automatic mode. It makes a noise when changing scenes between macro and normal. and the shutter does not close, the strange thing is that I did not disassembled the lens, it is well connected and wires are not damaged. What could it be? Thank's.
