20 Most Recent Kyocera Finecam S3X Digital Camera Questions & Answers

Look at your memory card. SD and SDHC cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

Kyocera does not list the S3X, but the driver software listed for the S3R will probably work for you. NOTE: according to the site, the driver is only needed for Windows 98 and 98SE. Windows 2000, Me, and XP are plug and play (no software needed). Vista and Windows 7 may or may not be supported. You can download the driver here:

Good idea. Fixya does not provide a cleaning or repair service - take it to your local service centre.

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

Hope the advise is useful. please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance.

as you don't mention which camera model it is it's somewhat difficult to give you an exact answer. i would suggest ebay as the first choice. i just recieved a charger (and battery) for an amatuer radio that i own from a seller in hong kong. the purchase price was a fraction of what most stores want and it arrived in canada in about a month. if you don't wish to wait that long their would be sellers closer.

there are also many shops that sell them. please see this search. http://www.google.com/products?hl=en&rls=com.microsoft:en-us&q=Kyocera+Digital+Cameras+charger&um=1&ie=UTF-8&ei=rYAXS57XKMuWlAfUlaDhAg&sa=X&oi=product_result_group&ct=title&resnum=1&ved=0CBcQrQQwAA

I get alot of spare chargers for devices i have at of all places op shops such as value village or goodwill. but that is only by luck whether they would have one.

please take a moment to rate this solution thanks

I have a Kyocera Finecam L3v and the battery went dead in it. I put a new battery in it and it will not go on. The lens is out.
