    Same problem here. I dropped my camera while the lens was out. It looks like it just needs to be popped back into place, but that doesn't work. I kinda want to bang it on the counter... that worked for my last camera that had a similar problem...

You will have to send the camera back to Canon for service, or buy a new one. The lens and maybe some other internal parts will have to be changed.

Konica Revio KD400Z. The camera was dropped and the lens will not retract. I can not get the covers off to investigate the problem. Is there a service manual that will tell me how to take the camera apart?...


The non-functioning of the camera can be a fault in the shutter, zoom or auto focus sections and may be due to the jamming or break in the Main control system or the drive. A simple was is to reset and we can try by removing the battery and card for some time. Now replace only the battery and while switching power ON, tap the lens hood on the palm of your hands so as to disengage any dirt or mechanism being struck.While powering pull the lens out as a jamming or misalignment can be reset.

Tips to open and check for common faults:

Use some air to blow between the lens to dislodge any sand particles struck inside. Unless you are familiar with handling of small devices must the camera be opened. If so check the voltage on the motor drive, check the auto focus and Zoom drives, it must be free with manual movement. If jammed the motor can be removed and released. If none of these works then you can think of taking consensus with the service centre.
Get estimate before you decide. It will be good to have it checked at the authorised service as you do not have to run around for spares.

Thank You for using Fixya

Lens probably does not extend or retract because of a misaligned gear box. The lens can in about 50% of the cases be repaired without having to replace it. Try to return to manufacturer first. If you're out of warranty, there are third party place that fix them such as camera lens repairs. If you want to do it yourself, there are also free camera repair guide websites that show you how to replace the lens, the replacement part is usually available on ebay.

Nikon Coolpix camera lens can not go back, how to fix it, thanks


Camera lens are made retractable by means of mechanical components such as gears and motors. If it won't retract, there is a big chance that the gears were misaligned or jammed. I suggest not to attempt any tear down or disassembly as it might damage the lens. You can visit your local camera shop and have it fixed.

Hi, I dropped my A650 and the case is dented although the camera works fine. Can I buy and fit a new case? It's dented around the flash. Thanks


No, you would have to send the product to Canon for repairs, and it would most likely be cheaper to just buy a new camera. I hope this helps!

Zoom lens jammed


this is a protection mechanism against further damage when the zoom/lens mechanism is obstructed. It's a very delicate mechanism, and it's not easy or cheap to fix. The gears probably got misaligned or broken when you dropped the camera. You should get a repair estimate, and only if you decide you'd rather trash it try opening it up again. Good luck
