Re: Lens Cover Closed

The switch inside that activates the camera is probably loose, or worse, broken.

Canon Si5 Lens Error message. Have tried suggestions on line

Welcome to FixYa.

There where wo reasons why do you receive a "lens error".

1. CF card slot cover or battery cover opened with camera on
2 . CF card slot cover or battery cover opened while camera was recording to CF card

In this case you have to ensure that CF card cover and battery cover is closed while camera is turn on.

You also need to be careful not to block the camera lens when turning on. Lens will have issues while retracting if your hands or even small thing that will block the lens to retrack while in motion of turning on.

Thank you for using FixYa.

My camera turns on by itself even with the slide in front in the closed position. The screen then shows the warning that the lens cover is closed. When I open and reclose the lens cover in 10 or so...

Most likely some dirt, dust, or other particle is jamming the lens opening gears. You can try to spray some compressed air into the lens assembly, hopefully dislodging whatever is obstructing the lens cover. If this doesn't work, the camera will have to be serviced, which can be expensive. If the compressed air doesn't work, and you decide to have it fixed, get an estimate first. Often the cost of repair justifies going ahead and purchasing another camera.
Good luck, thanks for using FixYa, and hope this helps!

Lens cover only opens half-way

If the lens barrel isn't fully extending on power up, that will prevent the lens cover shutters from springing open. There is a stationary prong that pushes the cover closed when the barrel is retracted.

Does the camera work otherwise? Take pictures thru the half open lens?

Lens cover stays in between, won't open nor close

Had a similar problem once. Fixed it by opening the camera and freeing up the lens cover.
1)Undo 2 screws each side and the base (6 in all) ignore the one on the front edge of the base for now.
2)Separate the base from the case (gently!) don't pull them too far apart, because they're joined by ribbon cables.
3)Then remove the long screw you ignored above, and again carefully separate the front panel.from the body.
4) At this point, you should be able to access the back of the lens cover, and free up the mechanism.

Once that' s done, put it back together, reversing the above sequence. Don't force anything, just make sure they're all lined up and fit before inserting the screws.

good luck.

Lens Cover Won't Open

NO Super glue this can be fixed pretty easily to get fixed. most local shops will not charge you to much to fix it maybe 15 to 20 at the most i figure. or you can remove the lens cover by putting a very small flat head screw driver on the side of the lens and with the camera off pull away from the camera and it should just pop off. Superglue if you get it on the lens will rune the whole thing. Just tiring to help out . I repair lens shutters all the time they are just mechanical parts nothing really special about them.

Lens cover

Well, I just looked at one, it is not easy to get to the front cover. Everything is removed from the back of the camera. The display, both circuit boards and the battery compartment have to be removed first. You may do better locating another camera, eBay is always a good start.

Lens cover closed

I'm just shooting in the dark, but have you tried taking the batteries out then putting them back in again. Also, you might want to look through the Sony website for an e-mail address that you could wite a question and/or ask for help/advice.

Lens will not come out of camera

There is a workaround for this problem, when the lens cover is open press down on the area of the lens cover on the "s" of Olympus. This can operate the switch that opens the lens etc. The long term fix is to remove the lens cover by removing the 2 screws at the base of the lens cover, take the lens cover off and gently clean around the switch which is behind the "s" of Olympus when the cover is on. I found that the grease/oil Olympus had used on the switch attracted dust etc and by cleaning this off the camera began working. Be careful when taking the lens cover off, there is also a very small metal plate that separates from the lens cover - don't lose it.
