Re: The slide doesnt open

It sounds like the lens hasn't retracted sufficiently and it's catching on the sliding door. Make sure you remove the batteries before trying this and don't go poking your fingers near any circuitry. The flash, if charged can give you one hell of a zapp It's a very simple matter to remove the front of the camera and slide the door open and replace in that position. Just be careful of the two fine wires running from the door to the camera. These are connected to the microswitch which turns the camera on when the door is opened. The whole procedure should take no more than 30 minutes just don't lose the screws. When you have everything back together reinsert the batterias and the lens should extend. Then try closing the door and then opening it again giving the lens time to retract and the camera to shut down. If the lens doesn't move you've got bigger problems.

Remove a 1063 battery

On the end of the camera where the wrist strap is there is a "door" you need to slide it away from the strap to open it. There should be a small orange tab that you need to slide back and the battery should pop out a little bit and you can remove it to replace it with a new one.

How can I open the battery door, it is stuck?

Like the manual shows you have to slide the cover and than it will come up.
But if you managed to put the batteries in the wrong way around, or even worse if you let them in for a very long time the door can be blocked by some pressure.
Please press the battery cover down, before you try to open it.
Perhaps you should knock or tap with a finger. Not to much force, but a few taps on the cover. Than again press is down, while sliding outwards. As soon as it moves, careful slide it further till it opens.

Hi, my battery in the D60 is stuck in the camera. I can't remove it

I cant see how that can be possible unless the battery has swollen due to heat.
Make sure any latches are held open and tap base of camera onto your hand (over a mat on the table in case battery falls out). Also try to attach sticky tape to side of battery (if enough space to slide some in) and pull on it.
It seems VERY unlikely that it is stuck, are you sure you didn't miss a latch?
I hope I have been of help but please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions.
I appreciate your vote if you appreciate my reply.

I get a "system error" when I turn on the camera. battery seems to be charged. thank you...


This error usually comes due to faulty sliding mechanism.Put a bit of force on the focusing lens to push it back into camera casing. That's the reason the sliding mechanism won't work. The lens is stuck and if you force it back in, the sliding mechanism will work again. Not responsible if your camera screws up, so try at your own risk.Or else try out this method.Pull the lens fully out and then it will work.It will be bit tricky to get the lens out. Use your nail to "grab" between the outer glass and the little plastic cover.

Thank you !!

My camera Cybershot DSC-W150 has a problem with zoom

Sounds like your lens might be stuck. Do not force it closed or pull it out for that might further damage parts that are an integral part of its sliding mechanism. can repair this for you and they also clean your camera as part of the repair.
if there were any parts you were not able to put together after you opened it , make sure to very carefully put those back to go along with your camera.

Stuck battery/ScanDisk card

Unfortunately, you have to force the battery door (very carefully) to open it, and find what is wrong with it.

It is more likely that when closed the battery door, it was forced and it slided out of one guide channels.

You need to practice a little bit before to try it with force (genlty but with firm force), but the only way to do it is slide the button to open it, and at the same time slide to the side and pull the battery door, everything at the same time. Try it until you are able to open it.

Using any kind of tool (such a plastic pry tool, a small screwdriver, etc) to force will leave marks in the housing, and it's very possible that the plastic locking tabs will break, causing that you will open it, but unable to close properly again.

Best regards,

I have the Sony digital camera DSC-T20, when i turn it on, it flashes "E:61:00 STANBY", it has been this way for a little over four months, and it will not focus at all. Any help?

We had the same problem, and we fixed it! First, identify that it''s the AF motor drive by A) Turning it on and putting your ears against the camera, then hearing a humming noise for about 5 seconds. B) The error comes up flashing on the screen: "E:61:00". Okay, so you''ve identified your problem! Next you wanna fix it, right? ;) A) Put the camera about a half inch from a hard surface. B) Let the lense go out and hit the surface and retract a little bit. Let it go out all the way when it tries the next time. If that doesnt fix it, try this: A) Turn it on and let the lense go out fully B) See where the lense comes out of the camera? The little round crack that surrounds it? Wiggle the lense a bit and blow in there a bit. (Be sure not to blow on the lense!) Now turn it off/on again, and it should be fixed! If not, try these steps a few more times. If still nothing, then I suggest phoning Sony, but this DID work for us, so hopefully it''ll work for you :)

Kodak Easy Share Z1275 stuck lens

I have a Kodak 1275. Green light would go on the off and lens was stuck open. Now for solution that worked for me. Get a can of compressed air, like what you use for computer keyboards. Blow the compressed air all around your stuck open lens, not to fast and switch directions of where you blow air around stuck opened lens. Make sure batteries are fresh and fully charged. Tap your camera against the palm of your hand twice, not to hard or you may damage instead of jarring lens lose. Next lay your camera on a table lens facing up, push power button on so camera will try to auto focus and lens should reseat itself and lens should move freely. It doesn`t have to look dirty or dusty, little tiny particles can cause the lens to get stuck and shut off fast because it is a safety feature. If this does not work try plugging your camera into computer so the lcd screen does not try to go on , thus giving even more power to get your lens moving . Do not try to force it closed by pushing or twisting with your hand or you may cause damage that will cost as much as the camera to fix.

DSC-w70 stuck lens

there actually is a little gear inside that moves the lens and since you already opened it make sure the gear is there and moves. LOTS of problems with these cameras....
