I get a "system error" when I turn on the camera. battery seems to be charged. thank you...


Hi,


This error usually comes due to faulty sliding mechanism.Put a bit of force on the focusing lens to push it back into camera casing. That's the reason the sliding mechanism won't work. The lens is stuck and if you force it back in, the sliding mechanism will work again. Not responsible if your camera screws up, so try at your own risk.Or else try out this method.Pull the lens fully out and then it will work.It will be bit tricky to get the lens out. Use your nail to "grab" between the outer glass and the little plastic cover.

Thank you !!

Cybershot DXCS60 carl zeiss vario-tessar auto lens cover is sticking closed


There is a switch at the back of the sliding cover of the lens that is on when the cover is slided down (lens uncovered). You should try to take off the back cover of the camera where the sliding cover is and try to fix that switch.

Lense will not extend, or if it does it retracts after a short while. Batteries appear to be OK


After talking, without any success, to your expert I tried experimenting. It seemed like the sliding lens cover was the main reason for it to behave as it did. It turned out that the lens cover had a worn track and did not always operate the lens motor switch to open it, or pressure on the cover caused the lens to retract. All it needs is a new sliding cover.

Canon sliding lens cover door


I have been having the same problem. Once opened, the sliding door will not close and the lens won't retract. But I have found that if you plug the camera into a computer via a USB, the lens then retracts enabling you to close the lens cover.
I'm still trying to find a way to fix this problem, since this is a great camers and still takes fantastic pictures.

Lens will not retract


In my case, there was dust in the switches that sense the cover movement.
  1. Close the sliding door and wait until the lens is drown inside (timeout).
  2. Open the screws that secure the front cover.
  3. Remove the sliding door covering the lens. There is no trick (hidden screws etc) so just use the force. The door is mounted by two-sided tape and adhesive.
  4. Remove the front cover. This is also mounted by two-sided tape / adhesive in the center, so you have to be a bit brave.
  5. The sliding door rails and the movement sensors are now visible. Clean all dirt.
  6. Try the door functionality.
  7. Mount the front cover after the lens works as it should. Close the screws.
  8. Mount the sliding door.
