Question about Cameras
The power button is jamed and the metal peace wear the batery goes at fell out and i dont know where it is
Well this just does not sound like you are having a good day !! This is nothing more than bad news, You broke your camera and as if this is not bad enough it is going to cost you more to fix it than it will cost to replace it. So just go ahead and buy another camera and save the repair money.

SOURCE: Casio wont take pictures
That lens error msg means that you need to send it in. There is no resetting that you can do to fix that. Call the repairs center at 800-706-2534 and then keep choosing option 1. Tell them what's going on and that you would like to send it in for repairs. If they ask just lie and tell them you already talked to tech support. LOL

SOURCE: i droped my camera on
Theres a very good chance you are going to have it repaired by a Camera Repair person. I would really need to know the brand and model.
If it is a canon then it will most def. need a new lens assembly. they have metal pins which guide the lens and when they are droped the pins break out of place.
If it is a Nikon or Sony or Casio alot of times I have been able to push the lens straight and it will re-align itself and work perfect again. But that said I wouldnt be too forceful unless the camera is not worth fixing. In that case you really arnt risking anything other than the possibility of fixing it.

I just fixed mine and what came out of the end of the lense housing was the shutter assembly. Your camera will still work but the shutter will not operate for protecting your lense.
What was on the ground from the shutter assembly looked like six parts but actually there's eight:
1 - Front round plate (what you see if shutter assembly was still in the lense housing).
2 - Hair size springs that hopefully stayed in the sides of the front round plate. IF NOT OR EITHER ARE LOST, THE SHUTTERS CAN'T BE SET TO CLOSE SO SKIP THE STEPS BELOW ABOUT INSTALLING THE BLADES.
1 - back round plate (black with four tabs).
2 - Larger L-shaped blades.
2 - Smaller L-shaped blades.
Place the front round plate with cosmetic (engraved 'PENTAX...) side down and look at the inside for two round mounting posts on the left and right. You will be using the larger of the two posts on each side for placing the L-shaped blades.
Place the larger L-shape blades with the hole end onto the posts. Blades should swing freely and their backs match with the shape of the inside of the front plate when open.
Place the smaller L-shape blades on top of their respective larger L-shape blades with the hole end onto the same posts used in the last step. Blades should swing freely and their backs match with the shape of the inside of the front plate when open along with the larger L-shape blades.
Springs (long ends) will need to notch into the smaller L-shape piece end (nearest the hole/post end). This is a real trickly part of the assembly and I used two tools like large pins or needles to pry the spring into the notch. If you can't do this, no sense in even leaving the four L-shaped blades inside of the front round plate since the shutter will not close properly without the springs.
Align and snap the back round plate tabs onto the front round plate. The shutter assembly is now ready to put back into the lense assembly.
MAKE SURE THE CAMERA IS IN THE OFF POSITION AND THE LENSE ASSEMBLY IS RETRACTED!
Align the front of the shutter assembly with the engraved wording properly oriented (not sideways, not upside down, etc.) and press gently into the lense assembly until completely in the end of the housing.
If blades were installed properly, they will open when the camera is turned on, and close when the camera is turned off.
If blades were not installed, the empty shutter assembly (back round plate snapped onto front round plate) can still be pressed into the lense housing...the shutter will just not work and the lense will always be exposed. Actually, this is one helluva lot easier than fixing the shutter assembly and not the end of the world for your camera's operation!
