Lens won't retract and camera won't start even with new batteries

The camera suddenly stopped working where there seems to be no connection to the battery. The lens opened and I can't get it to retract. I purchased new batteries and that did not work.

Hi

Either the fuse has blown or there is another problem with the main PCB or possibly the battery door indicator switch.

Open the battery door, by the memory card slot is a tiny switch; is the black tab for the switch still there or is it broken off and missing? Is it jammed down? Try holding the switch down with a pencil and press the power button... does it work?

If it doesnt seem to be the switch, it's probably the fuse. If you can solder well you can probably replace it yourself, and I will get the fuses tracked down and listed in the store so they are available to anyone who needs them.. they are cheap!

We are a digital camera repair business, if we can help please let us know! Good luck from Darntoothysam com

Sony cybershot dsc w80 wont turn on or retract lens. My camera suddenly stopped working one day, do not recall dropping it, etc. My mother has the same camera and I tried her battery and it still doesnt...


Hello,

From your description, I would say something is stuck inside the lens mechanism of your camera. It could be a grain of sand or any small particle like a piece of fabric from a camera bag.

Hold you camera lens facing the ground and gently - moderately tap it repeatedly. You can also try spraying a compressed air into it.

Thanks for using Fixya!

There will be some bit of paper or dust blocking the movement of sensor .

You need to blow air to remove the dust .

It will work .

Lens is stuck about 97% open. The camera will not


The lens has probably got something in the retraction mechanism that is stopping it retracting. This can be something as simple as sand or grit or as a result of a drop or knock. In most cases the camera will need to be stripped apart to remove the lens assy before it can be repaired. This is best left to a professional camera repair shop.

Sony cybershot DSC-W170 lens malfunction


sounds like you have dust, sand of some type stuck in the retracting lense. Ive found someone to tell me to take out my batterys and SD card, then tap the bottom of the camera on a table top. Replace the batteries and power up. Doing this, I was told it loosens up the debri for the lense to retract to close and to open again.

Canon A560 dropped.when the cam is on lens wont retract anymore


Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ...

Here's some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seem to work for less than 50% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try:

Screen goes black and camera shuts off


Are you using lithium batteries?

All Kodak cameras seem to have issues with alkaline batteries.

Although lithiums cost more, they work well and provide better value and performance than alkaline batteries.

Lens will not retract


I had exactly the same problem and I went to this site and got my solution. I banged the bottom of the camera with my palm and turned it off and on at the same time. On about the fourth bang the lens retracted and cleared the error codes. I know, "Caveman Maintenence" but it worked. Can't hurt to try...
