Camera fell on floor and lens popped out

Help! The camera fell off a table and hit the floor and the lens popped out in several pieces. Nothing looks broken, but I can't figure out how it all fits back together. Any drawings or description of how to fit it together. Thanks!D

Silver lens shroud fell off and now the lens wont extend out and the display is reading"lens error"


As you have dropped your camera due to that lens barrel (focusing ring) is not able extend, Your camera need to be disassembled to get at the focusing ring at Service Center but you can try these solution.

  • 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.

  • 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.
Good luck and have a nice day.

Rating the solution is highly appreciated.

It's busted.
Take it to a dealer for repair.
You may be able to claim this on your Home Contents Insurance.
If it costs too much to repair, hold a little ceremony and send it to a recycling centre for proper burial.

Never drop cameras, expose to sand water (unless waterproof). These will surely break a camera. Always be conscious of your camera to edge of tables or other potentially damaging situations. ALWAYS use straps and safe storage.
I'm sorry it's broke. : (

I need your help please, I fell with my Nikon camera, the body still works, but the 55-200mm lens does not work again, for seeing through the viewfinder the image is dark. The lens does not hit with...

Okay if you have luck all that's happened is you have jarred the lens contact between the camera body and lens. Make sure the camera is turned off then remove the lens and clean the gold contacts on both the lens and camera body. Remove the battery, install the lens and replace the battery, turn the camera on. If it still doesn't work shut the camera off and try another lens and see if it work properly this will tell you if it's the camera at fault or the lens. Switch lenses between known working cameras. I'm sure you will find the lens has come loose. I only once had a lens come apart from a jar (not impact) and it actual popped apart in pieces.

This is a common problem to digital cameras for those who take it to the beach. The problem was that there could be granules of sand in the lens and thus preventing your lens to come out.

What you need to do is to hold you camera on your right hand, with the lens facing downwards. Then turn the camera on as you gently hit it with your left palm. Do this several times until the sand comes out and your lens could retract out again.

Camera fell on floor, now pictures out of focus


That's because the internal focus servomotors are out of place and can't turn the focus ring. I'm sorry but these components are located inside the lens assembly and this is not by any means an user serviceable part. It's composed of tiny servomotors, small coils and plastic parts that can get out of possition or decalibrated if the lens assembly gets opened.

A thing to try would be to hold the camera with it's lens barrel opened in one hand and hit it (gently yet still firmly) against the other hand. There are some small chances that this will bring the internal focus ring to it's former alligment. Other then this, only a service center can fix the camera, but it could turn out to be an expensive repair.

I'm sorry for having to bring the bad news.

Here is the solution for your problem. If you look at your camera at an angle, you will see the zoom lens2_bing.gif is little bent to the side. I want you to put pressure on the cam to snap-it into it's place. After you heard a click, then turn-on your camera. This will fix your cam.

Lens popped out and says i need to restart it?!

cameras & hard floors are never a good combo. Im no help, except to say that if it were mine, I'd email the camera manufacture that question, and I'm sure they'll provide some useful info.
