Camera keeps opening and closing, orange light comes on


Wow, Not even the manual knows this error. Must be serious. It can mean two things in my mind. The lens is obstructed some how. Inside or outside. Or the battery is not ok. If you can't see anything on the lens barrel outside, please try to charge the battery. The camera will shut down without warning, when the power is low. Be aware the camera won't work as you expect, when a USB cable is attached. Actually you are not allowed to connect the charger, when the camera is still switched on. Look how the charger reacts. See if the battery is charged as before, because if the signal battery full does not appear it could be you have to buy a new battery.
Success.

Dsc-P52 lens cover sticking


You need to go in and physically open the lens cover.
1. take out batteries 2. remove memory card + the small phillips screw.
3. remove the 3 remaining exterior screws. carefully with a small flat tip screwdriver pry the plastic halves slowly. eventually they will come apart. 4. at the bottom remove the small ribbon cable. 5. disconnect the mini motor wire, black and red. 6. unscrew the motor drive for the lens cover and then open the lens. 7. purchase a new lens cover motor. 8. If your screen still says turn off , then press menu and delete some files. good luck ! Work Slowly and carefully and ground your hands to a pipe somewhere before working on the unit. the static electricity could ruin the circuits !

Canon ixus 50 the camera is not switching on and the lens is open


Check the battery cover closes properly, the camera will not operate at all if the switch thinks the cover is even slightly open. Try removing the card, sometimes they cause cameras to not start when they are faulty. If all else fails, the fuse is most likely blown. They are internally located just near the power switch but you are best to have a service centre replace it for you. Best of luck.

Sony Cybershot Lens Stuck inside!!!


I have the exact same problem with my Cyber-shot; the lens is stuck inside. After trying everything to loosen it (like wedging a razor knife between the sections, even dropping it or banging it against a book, etc) non of which I recommend, I finally got it open by PUSHING on the black telescoping section surrounding the lens itself. For some reason, this worked!

Lens does not close anymore -


When you opened it the cog connected to the motor which opens and closes the lens probably shifted and no longer has traction against the ring around the inside of the lens which turns it to open and close it. If you open the camera up again be extremely careful - the lens has loads of springs inside it - lose one of these and it won't work properly. I opened up the whole thing to try and fix my lens which had been jammed in after a friend dropped it. I fixed the lens but couldn't put the damn thing back together again to many tiny parts and no guide to the jigsaw!!

Camera stuck in open position.


The following blog outlines some repair options for a lens error. They won't work for all cases, but they're worth a try if the camera's no longer under warranty:

Lumix DMC FX8 lens cap opens intermitently,some images shoot rotated 180 degrees


hi, i've an fx8. i had a problem 2 weeks ago. my objective didn't want to close when i switched the camera off. it remained open. when i switched the camera on again, the objetcive has closed and opened again, and the _Turn Off the Camera and Turn On again_ message appeared on the sisplay. and remained in open position after switching it off. i tried some button combination, like menu button on, and power the camera on. it didn't work, but the second was the shotting button on, power on combination. an it worked, my camera did some kind of reset. it returned to the original position, and everithing is working since then.

Lens won't retract : /


Another common problem. Lens troubles. You have either knocked your lens out of alignment or you have a foreign body jamming up the works in the lens control unit. There have been many so called fixes for these problems but usually end up causing more problems than curing. You could check that you have fully charged new batteries. Some cameras need that extra kick to get them to open the lens fully. Worn out batteries can stop a sticky lens in it's tracks and tell the processor there is a problem and to close down. It's well worth trying before writing it off.
