Question about Cameras

If it has not been used in a while, the batteries may be dead and/or the contacts on the cap and in the body may have corrosion build up. Try fresh batteries after you clean the contact points with an eraser. The batteries go in positive up, toward the cap

I fixed the problem. It was caused by an extra little pimple on the sirius lens slipping into the auto focus indent indent on the camera body.
It is possible to get up to a ten thou engineers feeler gauge into the gap between lens and camera body although the one that did it for me was a three thou gauge.
I needed to cut the feeler gauge square at the tip and then, even though it was only three thou, I hit the tip by resting on a vice and tapping with the ball end of a small ball pein hammer. This caused the tip to form with a small curve. I then used a tool makers file to smooth the end down to almost nothing.
Turn the camera AF MF switch to AF to raise the screw. Fiddle the feeler gauge into the slot between body and lens just near the AF MF button and very gently probe the gauge. You are trying to get the little curve you made on the feeler gauge to slip over the pimple on the lens.
Its a very nice feeling when the gauge slips right in and the lens comes free.
The next proceedure, if you want to use the lens, is to unscrew the aluminium mount at the end and remove the offending pimple on the lens.

Dear friend, take your lens off, turn your camera to M for manual, rotate the main comand dial till you see the word BULB, press down the shutter button and keep holding it down, use a hand puffer, not canned air and gently puff some air into the camera. Very important, the lens opening must be facing down so any little debris will fall directly out. Let go of the shutter button when finished and replace the lens, repete if needed. You can buy those little hand blowers or puffers at any camera store. Hope that helps, Barry email@example.com
