If you have a good warranty, time to cash it on it. Your camera's worth dropped about 50%. It will most likely be the same price to fix as it is to sell it. You can try to yank the lens back into its socket. I have done it before myself. I can usually get it back in, but it will usually not be good as new afterwords. =[

My camera was dropped and now the lens wont come out when the camera is turned on. How do I un-jam it?


I had the same problem. I took the lens housing apart. There is a little metal rod inside where a plastic guide slides on. that guide was broken. I havent been able to find a site for that specific part. A lense repair kit is to expensive i believe. It depends if you dropped it while the lens was out if that guide is the problem.

Camera got dropped and has a slight twisted lense


more than buying a rteplacement camera. Even a second hand one would be cheaper than repair

Lens are stuck out. screen says "lens error"


There could be two things causing this problem.

1- some dirt somehow got on the outside of side of the lense. So the lense could not fully retract or open out. As a result you can not take any picture. If the lense comes out even a little bit, try to pull it out NOT too hard a few times. If it does not retract, turn the camera off and push the lense in (up and down) NOT too hard for a few times. If the camera opened up 100% or retracted 100%, your camera should be back to normal. Make sure to clean the outside of the lense when fully open and keep it clean always. If this did not help, read 2.

2- If you dropped the camera, some mechanical part of the lense is broken or dislocated or the cable may have come loose. In this case you need to take out the lense from the camera and inspect it for broken pieces or loose cable. clean the outside of the lense and push the lense in and out a few times. Put the lense back on the camera and your camera would be back to normal.

Good luck!!!!!!

My camera will not take pictures


Whats your camera make / model?
I have found this problem in the past mainly on samsung cameras. All I found was bad connections and poor solder joints.
connection problems with ribbons mainly. Samsung seem to prefer tinned ends as opposed to gold plated ribbon connections and these are just waiting to discolour and then fail.
Bad connections will drain batteries very fast and especially if your using cheap ones

My canon SD850 IS digital camera is not even a year old and well taken care of. I thasnt been dropped and is already broken? What do i do...everytime i turn it on all of the sudden the lense is stuck poped...


Take a look at the suggestions at the top of page 122 of the Advanced Camera User Guide. The suggestion is that the cause may have been that the camera was still on when the memory card/battery cover was opened. Try closing the cover and then turning the camera off and then on again. Hope this helps.

Contact the makers customer support.
The likely cost of repair however will be near the cost of simply replacing the camera.
Get your friend to donate you the cost
