Ricoh R7 Lens Jammed

Hi,

I was taking a photo yesterday with my R7 when my toddler ran by and knocked it with his hand. Now the lens is stuck half way out and won't power on. Have taken out battery ect, given the lens a bit of a jiggle! But nothing will work. Any ideas how to fix this quickly as I'm going away this week and need my camera!!!

I really hope you can help!

Cheers Kel

My friend had dropped my camera while handing it to me. The lense is stuck out and it wiggles. When I turn it on the camera comes on for half a second and shuts off.


Hi. The lens has been knocked off track and probably damaged since it was dropped.

If the lens is stuck at an angle it could possibly be repaired by snapping it back into place. Otherwise you will for surely need to have a new lens installed.
You can purchase a Lens for around $15 - $29 on Ebay. Sometimes they
offer free installation.

Hi, someone drop my Ricoh R7 camera in the floor and since then the lens can not be withdrawn. It make some noise but isn't moving and doesn't switch on.


Unfortunately, many cameras that fall prey to lens error problems can only be corrected by professional repair. But, here are some last resort troubleshooting steps that you can try that may correct it. They only seem to work for less than 40% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty (or repair cost approaches that of the camera), they're worth that try.

I took it to him and received the bad news.
He said the "frame" was bent , and it could not be repaired.
It needed to be replaced.
I am really suspicions yours may be also.

Caplio R7 Lens having black spots


Sounds like the spots are on your sensor. If on the lens, it would be too out of focus to matter.

My Ricoh R7, the shutter is jammed and wont close or open, its stuck half way. I live near Glasgow. Know where I can get a repair done?


If you are sure that your battery if fully charged but still does not do any good, then do this little trick:

1. Hold the camera on your right hand with the lens facing the ground.

2. As you press the power on button, tap or hit the camera's base to your left palm. Do this several times.

Chances are, there could be a sand or granule of dust that got stuck on the sides of the lens, preventing it to retract properly.

Hope this helps.

Caplio R7 error 30-01-23


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

Camera lens won't close says error 00000


This is a known problem, they wont easily admit it but we had 2 R6's and an R7 with the exact same issue. If you look on ricoh site they had a firmware patch for the R6 to try and fix this issue but it dis not work.

Lady at ricoh UK admitted there is a design fault with the Ricoh R6 and R7 and she sent me an R8 which has a whole new redesigned mechanism.

Dont let them sell you useless kit, get a replacement free of charge or complain.
