Question about Vivitar 100-400mm f/4.5-6.7 Series Lens

1 Answer

Lens won't work with my cameral any more

I have had the lens for about 2 years. the first year it worked great, but I went to use it the other day and it will not work with my camera anymore. When you try to auto focus it won't even respond. My smaller lens(18-55) works fine. So, I know it is not the body of the camera(Canon).

Clean camera lens and body contacts with a pencil eraser,be sure to hold the contacts face-down to prevent eraser rubber from falling into the body and vigorously scrub the lens contacts with the eraser.
Check batteries
Check switch on lens

the other suggestion would be to see if the lens would work on another camera, if it doesn't well then you will know its the lens and not the camera.and then my friend my advice is to send it in.

I left my nikon D3100 outside with the tripod and i forgot to get it,then suddenly it got wet from the rain,what will i do?


Remove the battery imediately, the memory card and the lens. Place the camera body, lens and memory card in a warm dry and place for several days to dry out completely.
When the camers is dry, insert the battery, lens and memory card, turn on the camers and set the date and time.
If the camers does not work charge the battery and try again.
If it still does not work then you need to send it to the Nikon service centre for repair.

Camera Kodak C180 On receiving the camer it


This is a "budget" camera on the low end of the quality scale. Quality control isn't very good and if you just bought it, return it...it's obviously defective.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ3 Lens Won´t Open


This is a common problem with TZ3s. Power the camera on, then puff a little graphite onto the lens cover and coax it open with a tooth pic. Do this, powering the camera on/off till lens opens normally. Add little more graphite if necessary, but sparingly.

Graphite is used because it is extremely slippery, but will not attract dust like an oil will. At the same time, it is black! so you don't want to use anymore than absolutely necessary make lens work. Even then, check to be sure lens itself is clean after, and wipe carefully with an Eyeglass lens cloth only if necessary.

Another option in to remove the lens cover altogether by just pulling the leafs out of the camera. Another option is to sell your working but lens cover problem to a repairman on ebay, and buy a good TZ3 or TZ5 on ebay used, refurbished or new. Good prices if you bide your time.

Don't put in your best bid to the very last minute of the auction. In the mean time, put a camera you are interested in on your MyEbay Watch list and set a reminder alarm on your cell phone about 5 minutes before the auction is to close, then if the price is still good, enter your best bid 30 seconds before the end of the auction. Refresh the auction page on your PC to keep track of the bidding right up to the last 30 minutes so you can see the last remain bid and if it is worth outbidding on this camera. Again, if you are not in a hurry and bide your time, you can get a great buy. There are plenty of these cameras sold every day.

Lens Error Message


Hi there

I had the same problem a year after I bought my camera. I returned it to Nikon and they fixed it and returned it. The problem reoccurred 3 times and each times Nikon repaired it free of charge. Then after a year it went again and, when I returned it to Nikon they sent me a new camera. Within a couple of months the new camera had the same problem. I have since resolved it with new batteries! The original coolpix rechargeable batteries do not seem to recharge properly so when I put ordinary AA batteries in it suddenly worked. Good luck.

Fuji digital camera A370 lens sticking


It seems the life of digital cameras are 2-3 years. The camera has lens gear problem. The lens assy fails most on digital cameras with moving lens. The plastic gears in the lens assy. are quite fragile in design and when used regularly, gears tends to wear down and eventually damages the lens movement. Many time a small impact or stress on lens when extended do the same damage. The parts are sold as a lens assy and repair cost may run around $100.
