To open the mechanism you need firts to take out the front group lens (sometimes loosing 3 screws placed around the front ring).

After you take the front gropu out there is a nut that holds all the shutter unit attached to the camera. Turn it to the left to placed it out and then take the mechanism off. Be sure the are no other parts connected between shutter and camera before pull it out.

    Ty CyE y will try it and tell you if i make it, so if i understand isits impossible to remove the lens first, and it's no need of open the entire camera right?

    Hi MrGriphus. In this model you can not take out the shutter mechanism as in SLR cameras. So, you have to disasembly the lens first to reach the mechanism.

Dropped one of my lenses and its stuck open like it's connected to the camera. If anyone knows how to fix these kind of lenses please help cause there very expensive.thank you


Welcome to the club of lens droppers entry only requires that you drop and break lenses its an expensive club to join
I found my entry fee to be to high for continued membership once was enough
cheaper to buy another lens due to internal damage repair costs
Only way for you to find out is to get a repair quote as elements may be out of alignment
Good luck

My right lens is scratched after dropping them on the pavement. Where can I have them repaired? Thank you kevin


Unfortunately, scratches in coated sunglasses cannot be repaired, you will have to replace the lens. Mostly there are even both lenses replaced because it may happen that there is a slight difference between the colour of the old and the new lens.But often you can come to an agreement with the optician, especially when you are his customer to get both lenses for a special price. If you have paid a lot of money for your glasses it may be worth the expenses.

I have an older Minolta 50mm AF lens that sticks wide open. If I tap the side of the lens, it will shut, but my Sony a550 cannot control it. What can I do to fix it? The camera runs my other two lenses...


Having been there with an older Minolta lens, I'd guess the lubrication on the iris has thickened to the point that the leaves are sticking open (normal position except during time when shutter is open). Time to find a local Minolta/Sony authorized repair shop and have it cleaned and lubricated.

Dropped lense, hit the outer ring, now won't


No quick or cheap fix, but definately a lens worth fixing- send it to Canon

My son dropped my Nikon D40x, cracking a piece of the lens inside. It seem like a clean break; how can I fix it?


First, try it. If it still works, you're in luck. If not, well !!! Once a lens is broken, there isn't much that you can do, except replace it. Camera lenses are compound lenses, except on the smaller cameras. Compound lenses are stacked and glued sets of lenses, with specific distances between sets. If it is an expensive lens, get an estimete for a repair price. It might be cheaper to just replace it.

Lens opens then closes, a few times then error message


no you shouldnt repair it yourself it will only make it worse, the lense have become disalligned it can be repaired for you and that is the best option. you can also try gently pulling and twisting the end of the lense and i mean gentle dont twist and pull till it pops. once you have done this switch it off and on and it may have worked to allign the lenses.

While turning in off softely press the lense in and out a couple of times. The lense would retract. If not fully, but most of the way, push the lense a little harder in until completely retract. If you turn it on, I should work fine. The reason the lense does not retract is most likely some dust in there somewhere. If it did not help, you would have to open the lense and clean it and close the lense.

I hope it helps,

Lens Error, Restart


Hi

What you are seeing is a generic stuck lens error message, turning off the camera and turning it on again will not fix the lens unfortunately.

Your lens needs to be cleaned or repaired, and if it cant be repaired it needs to be replaced. There are online places that will do it for a decent price and there are others that overcharge by way too much.

Fixya rules prevent me from giving you a link to anything off Fixya that would help you fix your camera.

Good luck from....

Horizontal Lines


the problem is on the obturator, is blocked, doesn´t close when u give a shot, u can see if u look to the lens and take a picture at same time, if see one that is working properly u will see that the obturator closes and open as u take a picture. probably u will need to send her to the dealer
