Tip & How-To about Cameras
The Super Zooms have very long stratched lense which is very easy to get damaged. If any ways you have a retrected lense due to an accident and have following symptoms I have a solution ( 80% working. I tried on my own camera and it worked. Nikon P80)
1) Your lens is retrected and is not coming out 2) Camera is working but shows lens locked or similar error 3) you can hear the lens motor moving or vibrations from the camera is evident
What you will need...
Claim your warranty first ;) Try this only when you do not have any other options.
You will need something to pull the lens out like a UV filter which connects on the lens' open edge.
Gently pull the lens out thread by thread and keep trying to move lens out by zoom button.
Do it very very slowly and precisely.
Once lens comes out pull out the battery and insert again.If you are fortunate enough your lens will start functioning.
