Hello guys/girls... Help me... I lent my brothers camera and took really good care of it, unfortunately - I think it happened in the plane - one of the two pieces that protect the lens is not there anymore... So it is only half way protected. This can not be good. I live in Belgium. Where or whom should I turn to to find the piece or to get it repaired? I don't know why but I think if I'd find the piece and just would put in it there, it work like that.. Or is this a totally wrong impression? I'm so depressed I can't even watch the 500 pictures I took at the Caribbean doin' my shoots :( because it makes me think of the camera problem. Thanks a lot!

Hello my friend lent me her model and could not find the cd. I went to HPs website and downloaded the drivers for free and installed them. It took a while as I downloaded the wrong ones and had to repeat, but if you're careful should go ok /) good luck
I can't understand why one would install a used motor in the first place? Also It does however sound like the guy really doesn't want to do the work and won't do it correctly. I think you'll end up paying a lot for unsatisfactory repair. You may end up putting more money in the repair than the car is worth. Good luck
I had this same problem. Something is wrong with the mechanism that moves the feed dogs. There's a slide switch on the back of the machine that raises and lowers the dogs. Unfortunately, most of the mechanism is made of plastic, so there may be a 'stripping' issue -- something's not catching correctly. I took off the throat plate and cleaned everything out (lots of lint in there!). Remove the bobbin, thread and needle. This way you can run the machine and see how things are moving inside. Notice the long screw/rod hanging in the back. This is supposed to rest in an indentation on an arm just below it. Mine had somehow worked its way out of that 'cup', so the dogs weren't moving correctly. Once I got that piece back in place, everything worked fine. Good luck!
You have damaged lens barrel mech. Within the lens barrel, there are couple of tiny plastic gears and any damage to one of those gear will cause this kind of problem. I'm not sure it would be worth repairing the problem because of the cost of repair around $100. Good luck.
repair of the optical unit (lens) in this camera is not possibble. Replacement of optical unit is the only solution. Price of the optical itself is about 70 Euro.
I can help you. Please advice.
This is a mechanical problem. The camera can't align the lents and proper focus or extend them them due to some sort of servomotor failure. Because of that, it tries to get a proper fix, but as it fails, it thinks that some object got the lents pushed or something like that and it askes you for a "reboot". You can't "hard boot" the camera, even a complete reset woun't help as this error is given by the camera's microcontroller circuitry (some sort of camera processor). The only fix can by given by an autorised service center. Even they may find out that you need the whole lens mechanism changed.
This is because the lens assembly is a very delicate mechanism, including small coils, motors and the actual lens. If some of this components get loose, they can jamm or damage other parts, preventing the lens mechanism to extend.
