Question about Canon PowerShot Pro1 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Pro1 Lens tracking problem.

Every time I turn my Pro1 on and the lens comes out to the operating length, it clicks real loudly a few times and then retracts. I actually have to pull the lens out to get it to turn on all the way. Sometimes when the lens is all the way out I turn it off and the clicking happens again on the way in. This is a real pain because sometimes it won't come out at all after the clicking. Any help would be very appreciated! Thx!

The CD part of my player does not start.


From what it sounds like, the laser lens in your cd player is having trouble reading discs. Is it just one cd or all? assuming it's all. you make want to get a cd lens cleaner disc....it's basically a cd with little bristles on the bottom designed to 'sweep away' the dust that accumulates on the lens. However, should you do that a few times (i usually give it about five good runs) and it still doesnt work, try another disc and listen closely for any sort of 'out of place' clicking noises....especially a monotonous repetitively click or ticking.... that usually indicates that the lens carriage has somehow jammed or come off track and needs to be replaced or refitted. refitting them on the track isnt difficult and once you open it up it's pretty self explanatory if you're mechanically inclined. Hope this helps.

How to remove the lens of the Canon PowerShot Pro1 Digital Camera? If it cannot remove, how can I disassembly the front of the camera with the lens? And is there are some pictures and graphics to show


Does not matter how you remove the lens, because once you got it of, you never can get it back on, so your camera can use it. Assembling a camera lens is a very delicate job, and only the slightest miss alignment makes a lens worthless. This kind of repairs should be done in a Canon certified repair centre. But first ask what it will cost, but if it costs more then a new camera, you better start saving for a new camera. The cameras becoming better and better every year, and in the same time they are cheaper and cheaper.

Sorry, but if you really want to try it yourself, because you don't mind what the result will be, please look on the site fixit dot com. The take apart all kinds of electronic equipment. (they don't show how to put it together)

When the time to operate my 18 to 55mm is not working how can i fix this can you help me what to do


Hi Tom, if it your first time operating the Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 USN Lens then this wont be that difficult. To operate the lens, simply attach it to the DSLR body, turning the lens untill it clicks into place. To zoom the lens, turn the grip section of the lens both ways.

The Lens Stuck in extended position on my kodak easyshare v-550


Hi there, welcome to FixYa.

L-83 is a type of lens error. There are a few different types of errors with causes ranging from a broken gears (they're plastic), to sand or dirt getting in the gears preventing them from turning. So, here are a couple things you can do to fix this yourself before turning it in to shop for repair.
1) Get an air compressor and put the nozzle up to the space between the lens and the body of the camera and blow it out real good. Then turn the camera over (lens down) and tap the lens on a hard surface. You may have to do this a couple of times.
2) Press the power button on the camera, and while it's flashing it's lights, bang the side of the camera on the palm of your hand a couple of times. That may free the gear up.

If it's not something blocking the gears from turning, then it could be that the guide pins on the lens may be out of their tracks. If this happens, then the lens will not move at all.
Press the power button and grab the lens, give it a tug and a twist. Don't be afraid of it, you want to manuever those pins back into their tracks. You should hear a click when they fall back into place. If you hear the click, then stop pulling on it. Power it off and back on to see if the lens retracts.

If these three suggestions won't work for you, then you should turn it in for repair. Perhaps the teeth on the gears are getting stripped off, and it's pieces of the gear themselves that's getting trapped in the other gears.
Hope this helps you. Thanks for coming to FixYa.

Logitech quickcam deluxe won't focus


Keep turning the focus dial until it will focus. The focus dial may need to be turned several times in one direction or the other. If the Lens has come off its focusing track inside the camera, you'll need to take it apart and place the lens back on the track. The track are grooves, like a screw, that holds the lens for focusing.

Camera beeps loud 3 times and shuts right off!!


sounds like a lens error, does the lens extend or retract? You probably have to get the lens back on track, use gentle pressure wiht the camera face down on a towel covered table and turn on to see if the camera tries to retract the lens. I really dislike these types of cameras that extend the lens everytime, if it turns on in your pocket, your doomed!

Lens won't come out?


unless you are very good in micro repairs you will have a pile of junk in short time.
the camera has to be totally dissembled to get to the lens tracks and the 3 pins that hold the lens in place, the track may be damaged also.
as your camera sits its worth around 40 , even if you take it apart the lcd is worth 40 if you don't damage it.
the repair will likely be around 90+ from kodak,
if you take the iris apart you may never get it back together.
if you try to force the lens back in place you will damage the tracks and likely leave plastic bits in lens.
