Sorry, it will require service repair. Contact your local photo shop, go back to where you bought it and have them help you with service warranty, or contact Nikon directly for service support.

Benq camera . Zoom out of the camera no longer operate and emits sound as if there is something aperture of the lens ..... Please reply disadvantage , and how to fix it


Hi Beshoui,
I believe your zoom lens is not extending when you power on. In most cases like this, there is likely a foreign body (sand) or similar objects lodged between the lens tubes or the camera has been subjected to a knock (dropped, bumped against a solid surface) that caused the lens tube to miss-align. All you need to do is:
1. as you switch on the camera, give a little knock/ tapping with your fingers around the lens.
2. if that fails, apply a little pressure to the sides of the lens ring while powering on your camera.

Lets hope that will help to dislodge the foreign body or the lens tube miss-alignment.

The 18-70mm lens on my Nikon D70 is stuck on zoom. I can't take it back in to take a wider shot. I haven't dropped it or damaged it in any way. Any suggestions?


take the lens off the camera, try to change the zoom on the lens. if it works then your lens is ok. on the front lens mount surface of your d70 there is a small "driver" connection, it is in the lower left of the metal surface . this connects to the socket on the lens when the lens is mounted. by the way, your lens doesn't have this though. if your lens moves then your camera body is the problem. your lens is electrically operated for focus only, it is manually zoomed. if you can't zoom it by hand when removed than your lens is probably broken, many of the parts inside these lenses are quite delicate and won't take much of a bump on the front end to break the inside parts, i know, i have broken a few..hope this helps.

I dropped my Nikon d50 and now when I turn it on it flashes fEE. Whats wrong?


The lens is not making proper contact with the camera. Try removing the lens, cleaning the contacts on both the back of the lens and in the lens mount on the body, then reattaching the lens. If that doesn't do it, try jiggling the lens gently. If that doesn't do it, try attaching a different lens if you have one available, or attaching the lens to a different body if that is possible. If nothing works then it could be that the lens and/or camera needs servicing after the drop.

Lens won't come out after dropping camera.


Only lightly toasted. The drop likely damaged the lens tube (housing) or jarred the zoom mechanism off of its track. There is no safe DIY fix for either condition, but the camera can be repaired by the manufacturer or at a local camera shop. Make sure to get an estimate first -- you may need to decide if the camera is worth the cost of the repair.

AV error whn pentax ist DL & Quantaray zoom lens attached


I've got the same problem. The problem is that the lense is loosely attached to the body. What you need to do is that when you see the Av flashing, press the lense of the camera to the body and twist the lense to the left a bit. This tightens the connection. You can then take the photo.

I dropped my EOS Digital camera and 300 MM Zoom lense in the river. The camera has dried and seem to be workin gfine, but the zoom lense needs to be cleaned.


Dear catnip54,
You could obviously clean the front and back elements on the lens(use a microfiber lens cleaning cloth), but there is no way of cleaning the inside of a SLR zoom lens other than having an authorized service technician take it apart and clean each lens element seperately(which could be expensive). I would count myself very lucky that your camera body still works after being immersed in water.

Sincerely,
Agent Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Zoom error


look for a tiny pinhole and insert a pin while powered up to reset...if this does not work, if you get to the point to see any electric motor, then apply a battery powered set of jumper wires to the motor to manually run the zoom back and forth. start with one battery (1.5 volts) only!
