    I have a ViviCam8370 and when I turn the camera on the lcd screen turns on and the lens comes out, but automatically goes back in and turns off. I use rechargable batteries and have tried recharging them, and have also tried 2 new sets of duracell batteries.

    Any suggestions?

Another cause for this problem might be that the sensor on the lens barrel responsible for detecting the internal motion of the lens is faulty.

Why does the lens comes out then goes back in and I cant take any pictures

Rosalie, try re-charging/replacing the battery. Although the lens comes out and retracts, the battery may be weak. good luck

My Fujifilm A900 wont turn on. I press the power button and the lens comes out ever so slightly then goes back in. It also wont go into disk mode or view mode.

I also have this problem - it started when I put some Lithium batteries in (AAs). Whilst I was looking in the A900 handbook it said "do not put Lithium batteris in it" :(

I thought those batteries where for these type of battery eating devices.

Summary: put Lithium batteries in never worked again!!

it was only a week old too!!

This is probably THE most common failure among digital cameras. There's a halfway chance of fixing it yourself, described here:

Goes off after lens come out.

Get it repaired under warranty. Sounds like a logic circuit problem.

It wont stay on

the same thing happend to me just now... you have to wiggle the lens untill it goes into place then it should retract when you turn it on. :]

Camera wont stay on, please help

Possible that the Lens Mechanism is out of sync. If its still within warranty just bring it in and have it serviced. If not I may be able to help you out but it requires dismantling the camera,..

If any one knows a quicker and easier way maybe they can post it here But as far as experience goes thats what happened with mine,

Hope this helps
