Question about Cameras
I would say the camera is trying to extend the lense, however meeting a minimal resistance is shutting back down.
Lint, sand or other particle may have lodged in the lense mechanism.
As you power on next time... give it a few good thumps on your palm, ans see if you can get ti to dislodge.
It sounds strange, but there are very tight tolerances in the lense, and even an eyelash or hair can make it not want to extend.
If there are no errors on-screen - your problem is a mechanical binding and should be expertly cleaned if you cant get it un-stuck manually.
Thanks for using FixYa!!
