Hi Judy, thanks for coming to FixYa.
Sorry no one has gotten to you sooner. Your manual mentions this and this is what it says to do:

Turn the camera on and move the lens cover switch to the open. Then your camera should operate normally. Let me know if that helps.

    Ok, turn the lens cover switch to off. Turn the camera off. Take out the batttery.

    Then replace the battery, turn the camera on, and move the lens cover switch to on and see if that doesn't solve your problem. let me know with a comment. If it does, you can change the rating. Thanks,

    Ok Judy, we've gone through all of the owner level fixes we can do for your camera. That must mean that it is a problem that's internal and must be checked by a repair shop. Sorry, and thanks for trying FixYa.

Dis you check the front lens? is it still clean and shiny?
Only clean a lens with a lens pen or tools special made for lenses. Normal cloth, and paper for sure can scratch the lens. The coating on a camera lens is very delicate and needed for the quality of every shot.

Camera won't focus

I think you're camera has had it. You could try the Toshiba web site follow links for support and downloads to see if there's a firmware upgrade which may solve the issue.

I've checked the specifications and I wouldn't spend anything on repairing it. I'm afraid its just not worth the outlay. You could probably get a good camera with a higher specification second hand for less than an hours repair bill.

What does "lid open" mean on the lcd screen? If this happens, can't take picture.

This means either your battery lid is not properly closed. Or the camera lens lid is closed. If camera lens lid is closed you cant take any photo. there will be some knob like thing which you can use to open the lid.

Let me know if you need more help.

Missing memory card

In all probability the memory card that came with your PDR-3300 was:

SD 8 MB Toshiba Memory Card.

SD cards with a much larger MB can be obtained at any large Drug Store, i.e. Walgreens, CVS, etc.

At the present time, these cards, 32 MB and larger are very inexpensive.

Camera lens wont close

The lens has probably got something in the retraction mechanism that is stopping it retracting. This can be something as simple as sand or grit or as a result of a drop or knock. In most cases the camera will need to be stripped apart to remove the lens assy before it can be repaired. This is best left to a professional camera repair shop.

It sounds as though the drive gear is slipping... If you give up on trying to repair your camera I may want to purchase it for parts (my sister-in-law broke my LCD display)
