Question about Canon Cameras

1 Answer

My SD850is was dropped,there is a slight split on the bottom (looks like 2 screws are missing). When you turn the camera on, it says "lens error - restart camera" and then shuts off. It does show the opening picture on the LCD but then turns dark and shuts off. I've had the camera for about 2 yrs. Anything I can fix or is it worth the price of repair which would cost approx. how much?

From searching the internet, it sounds like the lens needs to be replaced and the cost of the repair would be about as much as buying a new camera.  thanks for responding.  now i have to go thru "what to buy" again.......

How to adjust carb on 1997 seadoo ? \


You should adjust the idle screw to get the proper idle speed and then whether an air or a fuel ratio screw from a starting position of about 3 1/2 turns out from lightly bottomed with the engine idling you would back it out further until it just starts to miss or drop in rpm and then back in until it just starts to miss or slightly drop ion rpm and then find the mid point between the two and/or back it out to the midpoint and then until more you get the highest smoothest rpm and turn to enrichen it just slightly

Lens doesn't work but the letter "F - -" blinks on and off on the camera.


"F--" means the camera thinks there is either no lens attached or a non-cpu lens is attached. Looked on bottom of camera for a very small reset button. If one is there, turn camera on and press for about 2 seconds. With camera off, remove lens and with a slightly moistened pad, clean electrical contacts on bot lens and camera body. If neither works, see if a different lens does work. If a different lens works, then it is the original lens, if not, it is the camera.

CAMERA TURNS ON FOR A SPLIT SECOND THEN SHUTS OFF


My Z1275 was off with the lens open. When I turned it on, the lens moved a little, the screen came on
for an instant, and then the camera off.

Here is what I did to "fix" it.

I turned it on and helped the lens (gently) close while it was moving. It closed and the camera came on.

It must have been dropped and slightly bent in such a way where the lens could not close.

Good Luck!

I have an olympus digital camera fe-170. when i turn on my camera, the lense come out and the LCD screen is black, when i try to turn it off, it doesnt turn off, but after like 10 seconds it turns off by...


The lens is bad, needs to be replaced. Maybe purchase camera on ebay with broken LCD but good lens. Replacement can be time extensive. Will need #00 or #000 phillips screwdriver and solder iron. Remove 6 exterior screws+2 inside battery door. Take off front panel, remove top screw holding back panel; remove back panel. Remove 2 screws(left side top & bottom)from LCD, unplug LCD by flipping hinge up on plastic connector, pull ribbon. Remove 6 screws along outer edge of electronic board + 2 screws behind lens. Unsolder 2 battery connectors near top right side(do not melt or burn ribbon in between them). Disconnect ribbons at top right and on left edge of board. Flip board over to the left side carefully as it's still connected by 4 thin wires. Remove 3 outer screws holding lens, remove lens. Replace with good lens. Assemble camera in reverse order.
Good luck and be CAREFUL!

Lens damaged camera dropped camera body damaged pentax k1000


"To get the lens to retract, we tried to do a slight twist over to the left (looking at the camera like your the subject - camera lens is facing you). Sure enough it went back in! But now it has trouble focusing. That's another question now. Darn thing...we'll see what else we can jimmy :-)"

Blurry display after dropping


I did the same thing to my Photosmart E327 and upon inspection, I found that the len had fallen out. I could not find it so I am trying to find how to get it replaced. The blurry picture began for me after the drop. Suggest that you check to see if your len has become dislodged, or fallen out as mine did.
