Question about Kyocera Finecam S4 Digital Camera
I went to use my s4 & it will pop out the lens & the flash, but will not let me take a photo. I flip it over to either the setup or view modes & I have to hit the power button again to turn it on. Meaning that while in camera mode it turns on & then imediatly turns off. I hit the power button while in camera mode, and it retracts the lens & flash, then imediatly pops them back out again. The only way to shut it off & have the flash & lens in is to switch to view or setup & then shut it off.

Kyocera online Technical Support team- should sort this for you - it is I thing a switch fault and the camera should be replaced- if it is out of warranty a nominal fee will be charged.

Due to the tight tolerances inside the lense mechanism - small bits of sand or lint may become trapped in the mechanics.
It is advised to take the camera to a camera repair shop and have it disassembled and cleaned.
There are many small parts and intricacies that will render it totally useless if not done properly.

First thing to check is that the battery terminals inside the camera are clean (use a qtip and alcohol, or a pencil eraser). Although a battery or power problem can cause this symptom, so can a lens issue. The following blog details the things you can try to fix it:
Since there are tiny gears that drive the lens, any bit of dust, dirt, or lint can affect the initialization of the lens, and cause it to retract.
If you spray out the lens with compressed air, and try the other fixes, take it into a camera repair shop and get an estimate. Sometimes, it's cheaper to just buy a new one, since the cost of repair can be high.
Good luck, and hope this helps.
