I was shooting pictures with my camera at a concert. I used the zoom feture to zoom in, and it caused a zoom error in the camera. I turned the camera off to reboot it, but the lens stayed out. When I...
Hi it sounds like the lense has got knocked whilst the camera was one and the lense out, the damage may all ready be done but what you can try is when you switch it on get the lense and try pulling it out slightly and then when the camera is switched off try pushing the lense back in it may need turning slightly to allow it to go back in
if none of the above works then this means the lense motor has either been put under strain and shorted and no longer works or it just means the lense motor has packed up through no fault of your own.
now if pulling and pushing the lense dont solve the problem then it all depends on the make wether its worth repairing or not, if its a high end camera then most camera shops will repair it as the cost would work out worth doing,
if the camera is a mid to low end price range then knowbody will touch these as the cost would far out way the price of the camera so you need to think is it worth paying to get fixed and would the cost be more than the price of the camera.
if its a high end expensive camera then you will be able to get it fixed and it would work out cheaper than buying a new camera, if its a mid range to low end price range then you wont be able to get it fixed as they are classed as a throw away item,
if you let me know make and model i will be able to tell you if its going to be cost affective to get it repaired or if it will be better to sell it on the auction site as spares and cut your losses and get a new camera
let me know then i can assist you further ok
plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks
