YOU DIDN'T SAY WHAT THE CAMERA WAS, BUT GENERALLY THIS REPAIR IF DIFFICULT AT BEST. THE PROBLEM BEING IN TRYING TO FIND A PART OR HAVING TO SEND THE CAMERA IN FOR REPAIR. MOST OFTEN, AS A RULE, THIS REPAIR WOULD PROBABLY COST MORE THAN JUST REPLACING THE CAMERA. IF THIS CAMERA DOESN'T HAVE A REMOVABLE LENS, IT IS PROBABLY NOT CONSUMER REPAIRABLE. MOST OF THE CAMERAS ON THE MARKET ARE PUT TOGETHER WITH THE THOUGHT THAT THEY WILL NEVER BE SERVICED OR OPENED AGAIN. THEY CONTAIN MICRO CIRCUITS AND MACHINE ASSEMBLED MICRO PARTS THAT THE AVERAGE PERSON JUST DOESN'T EVEN HAVE THE TOOLS TO EVEN WORK ON ONE. SO, SORRY, BUT YOUR BEST AND CHEAPEST BET IS TO REPLACE THE CAMERA. KNOW THIS ISN'T WHAT YOU NEEDED TO HEAR, BUT I HATE TO SEE YOU GET HIT WITH A BIG BILL AFTER SENDING IT IN FOR REPAIR.

My kodak 3x optical aspheric lens is broken the pictures come out blurry and alot of contrast . how do i fix it?


If your lens is broken, then there is no other alternative solution than to get a new lens for the camera. Because the Light for the picture has to come through the Lens which focuses it. If it is broken or malfunctioning, you will need to put in a new lens. Thank you

When I turn on my camera D50 it will not take pictures. In the top screen a F- - just flashes?? Can anyone help? Thanks!!


The F-- error indicates that teh contact between the lens and the camera is broken. I would try taking the lens of and putting it bask on agein. Cleaning the gold plated connectors on the lens ( and camera). U can use a q-tip and jus a drop of rubbing alcohol. If this does not work. The camera an lens should be serviced by a proffecional.

Auto focus not working could you tell me if it is the lens or the camera that is most likely to be broken.


hi there,

what kind of lens do you use? D40 only support AF-S type to run the autofocus properly

have you switched the focus selector on the lens to A/M mode?
if you have but the autofocus is still not working, i assume that the lens-motor has broken

thanks

What does an Lens Error 0x0311 mean


It means the lens is stuck and/or broken and will not extend. I just had a camera a few days ago with that very same problem. If you are feeling techno-savvy you can open it and replace/free the parts in the lens rings that are malfunctioning, or you can just get a new camera.

It's kind of hard to explain, but basically there are little plastic runners in the lens tube and when they get jammed or broken the lens will not rotate hence will not extend hence is broken.

The LCD screen comes on but is blank. Cannot take or retrieve pictures.


Hello my friend,
Did you drop the camera ?
Basically this can be Lens broken or screen broken. you can check that by:
1. try to move your hands around the lens and see if it will change something. 2. take a picture even tough the screen is blank and then take the memory card and insert it into your computer, if you can see the picture on your computer that means the screen is broken. but if you cannot see the picture on PC that means the Lens is broken.

My Nikon Coolpix S5 has a broken lens; it son't fully close/ open. The message displayed on the screen says "Lens cover error". Is it something that can be repaired? How much would it cost to fix...


Hi , The lens cover error is because the stepper motor in the camera is unable to open the lens cover. I have a solution posted in doc "nikon s5 s6 lens cover error repair.doc"  uploaded on site http://www.esnips.com/web/papputatiyasStuff    It will be helpfull for you. You have written that your lense is broken. In that case you can follow the procedure given in my doc to open the camera. You can replace the camera lens if broken.
Happy debugging Mukesh
