Partly open lens


the mechanical part that is trying to open the lens cover is having a problem

Possibly

1. a lodged piece of foreign material

2. A broken piece within the camera is interfering

3. A piece in the camera that helps control the lens or another piece by the lens is out of place

Please check this out if you are comfortable doing so and let me know what comes of it

Thank you

If this is a new camera, it should still be under warranty. I suggest you contact Nikon before doing anything else to determine if the repair would be covered under warranty. Nikon also would be in a position to advise you as to what the problem might be so that in the event that the repair is not covered under warranty, you don't replace the wrong thing.

Anything falling out of the inside of your camera is not a good sign, since it is new, I would have it exchanged as soon as possible for being defective.

When i turn my camera on it make noise and i believe it from the lens that fell down


If your camera fell down with the lens opens chances are the rings that are around that lens that are used to secure it have been dislodged and are not doing its function anymore. With that fall, however hard it was, you most likely broke other pieces too. the only way to find out is to do a full diagnoses. They will basically take the camera apart, fix the lens and go from there. Contact www.teleplancamerarepair.com , describe what happened, camera details/make/model, and ask for a quote.
important: do not force the lens in or out for that would most likely make matters worse.
More details on the camera here would have helped too.

If not here is the procedure to take out all moisture trapped in the camera: Dry the camera, battery, any accessory, etc. with cloth and wrap each piece, camera and accessories, in newspaper. Place a few handfuls of rice into a plastic bag and then place the wrapped camera in the bag with rice. The newspaper wrapping avoids direct contact of rice with your camera because the dust from the rice can get into the small areas of the camera. The newspaper and rice will absorb moisture. Leave it there (with the bag open) at least 24 hrs.

Plastic lens part inside 5d fell out what should I do?


Since you weren't really clear about what the part is or looks like it's hard to tell. Most lens repairs of any kind that would require opening the lens in any manner are best handled by professionals. Too much of a risk of ruining a lens.

Lens cap stuck


I was messing around with this today, ended up where it seemed in was working.

Power up, let lens out, then take out batteries. Pry off silver band patiently using fingernails. Then pry off overlying black plastic piece. There are four units underneath, pay attention to how these are put on, mine popped off, but it wasn't too hard to figure out how to put back together. There are pins and holes and kind of fits like a jigsaw. Once off clean with alcohol where you can.

Put batteries back in and open and close a few times. This will help understand movement where pins of lens cover pieces go. When putting these back on make sure camera is in off position.

The lens cover pieces need to be put on so that the pin portion has some resistance. Move one so that it drops in then push up to get other in place. Let them come together and hold these in place.

The two smaller pieces will close the cover. Put the hole of the closer piece over the pin. Then move slightly so you can retract spring with a small instrument and subsequently engages pin on closer. Place top black piece back on, then silver.

This worked for me, hope it does you also! Good luck.

Camera lens stuck


Look at some of my posts today.
This may be that the lens is off track and may be able to be pushed back by a little force as you start the camera....see my other posts on this problem.

A black shadow half way down the frame

2 cent plastic pin holding AF sub-mirror broke. See above. Unfortunately Canon charges a bit above 2 cents to fix it. Saving pennies on plastic instead of metal will make Canon a boatload of money because they will all break eventually. Of course if everyone changes manufacturer on their next camera this might backfire.
