Has anyone dealt with the camera problem I had today?
The low battery indicator on my Sony DSC-H2, in accordance to Murphy’s Law, conveniently kicked in after I was fortunate enough to squirm my way into a small crawlspace opening with water supply and natural gas lines to hurdle around. There was nobody on site to fetch me a fresh pair. I took only a few pictures and it was the last picture I needed that KO’d the batteries. But hey, I was lucky that I had all of the important pictures I need up until that point.
Anyways, something happened with the lens in between the battery dying and starting back up with new batteries. Everytime I start it up, the lens struggles to extend out and eventually the display reads “Turn the power off and back on again”. The camera allows me to extract items off the internal memory and I am able to manually draw the lens out and in with easy, so it sounds like an issue with the track mechanism. This leads me to wonder, is there a practical or inexpensive fix to this problem?
