Problem with my lense

The stuff which is supposed to protect my camera lense stay blocked in open mode or closed mode (I need to help it when it isn't opening in order to take a picture). Can I fix it myself or do I have to send it in warranty?

Re: problem with my lense

A warranty job I would imagine I could be nothing more than a spec ot dirt of course. Try some simple things like a blast of air[ Don't blow- your breath is moisture laden - not a good thing for cameras] or a thin tissue[cigarette paper slipped around the hinge area. Would not go beyond there simple measures if it is to be a warranty job.

Don't know how to remove and swap lenses on my olympus sp-590uz

The lens isn't supposed to be removable. With the CLA-11 Adapter Tube you can add an additional lens to the camera, such as close-up, wide-angle, or telephoto. However, these attachments go in front of the lens that is already on the camera.

MTokina lens with Canon Eos Rebel. Error message that the lens is not communicating with the camera. Clean ? this is quite annoying and is happening 95% of the time. Turn off and sometimes camera takes...

It sounds like the lens isn't properly compatible with your camera which can be common on third party lenses. You can either set the lense and the camera to manual focus and focus the images by hand or sell the lens and find one that works in auto mode with your camera.

When i turn on my camera the lense extends but you can not see thru neither the lense or the remote screen. please help

A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, sometimes with lines, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open). To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see this link for further info and a simple fix that may help.

Camera switches itself off unless the viewing screen is closed.the camera will still take shots using the viewing lense but will shut off immediately if the screen is opened.

This behavior comes when the camera is confused about whether the flip-screen is snapped into the camera screen out or screen in (for protection). The screen is supposed to turn off automatically when you snap it into the camera-back screen down. But if you flip and twist it in a certain way, the camera gets confused. I'll bet that if you keep your screen out, on the side of the camera, you can take pictures just as well as ever. To fix the problem, flip the screen out with the camera on, then rotate it all the different ways you can which allow you to close it with the face out. One of the orientations will leave the screen on, I believe. At least this procedure is the one I followed on my A610 to fix the same problem.

Lensis not coming out

If you turn it on in photo review mode the lense will not open so turn it on in photo capture mode or if dirt gets caught in the lense it would jamm it shut so try to clean it, or if the lense is dented it would jamm, or if at one time the lense tried to open indide a case or in a position where the lense was blocked the motor mioght have burned out or the gear that pushes the lense out might have broken, in the case of the last three answers then a specialist might be able to fix it , or you might need a new camera, (i reccomend a fujifilm)

My sony dsc h5 camera lens wont open/focus

This might be a problem with the lenses' mechanism... Maybe you hit the camera (having the lenses extended, eventually). You have to pay a visit to the local service.

And in the future, use the protection that came with the camera (the black cilinder). It protects the lenses and also offers you the possibility to mount the lens cap without having to switch off the camera.

Lens cover stays open

hello lmsmith, the reason the lens protection shutter does not close, is that it is either jammed by sand, dirt or sticky substance. it is going to need cleaning by a qualified technician.

Digimax i6 pmp SHUTTER problems!!!

Congratulations on fixing the problem! However I just wanted to let you and everyone else who reads this solution know that the part which failed on your camera is not actually the shutter. The shutter is deep inside the lens assembly right next to the image sensor. What you were dealing with was simply a protective cover for the lens. David Millier Advance Camera Repair
