Question about Pentax Digital Cameras

1 Answer

Camera fell on floor and now wont open

My kids bumped a table and my camera fell. When I turn it on it makes a noise and then closes immediately. Is there a store in the area of Lebanon, OR that is reasonably priced where I can take my camera in and have them look at it?

Your camera would have to go back to Pentax or their factory rep for service. There is mechanical damage to the lens system and possibly to one of the circuit boards.

This type of damage will most likely not be covered by any warranties. These types of repairs can be very expensive in relation to the replacement value of the camera.

The lens won't come out - it makes a buzzing noise but won't open. Like it's jammed?? Olympus FE-46


Hi.

This error indicate that focusing ring got stuck or jammed. What you can try to do is spray some compressed AIR into the lens to try to free up any sand or dust that may have worked its way in. If that doesn't help, you can gently bump the camera to try to free the focusing ring.

or.......
You can try to turn camera ON at the table (facing it to the ceiling), don't put camera down face to the floor when opening.
Else your camera need to be disassembled to get at the focusing ring at Service Center.
Good luck and have a nice day.
Rating the solution is highly appreciated.

Camera dropped and lens is stuck one day i tried to make a video on my camera but then it fell and now the lense is stuck and when i turn it on it wont come out and when i turn it off it wont close


this may sound drastic but, grab the lens and try manualy realigning. If you hear a grinding noise the lens assembly has to be replaced. Flat rate from sony is usually pretty reasonable. Hope this helps.

Lens Error


This is probably THE most common failure among digital cameras. There's a halfway chance of fixing it yourself, described here: http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/fixing-lens-error-on-digital-camera.html

Only Nikon can tell you that. Looks like the autofocus lens mechanism broke inside.

I have heard of this problem and it was sometimes solved by the following...

1. Remove battery and memory card

2. Place a paperback book on a solid surface

3. Bump the camera firmly on the paperback book

4. Reinstall battery and test

Worth a shot if it can save you from sending it in for service.
