The eye of the lens won't close anymore and keep saying to turn the power on and off again, what should I do?

You might try removing the battery for a minute or two to reset the camera. You may lose any special settings in the process. After reinstalling the battery, try turning the power on and off again.

My lens stuck up wont close and the camera cannot open

The first thing to try is to charge the battery. It might just be too weak to extend the lens.

Otherwise its a common problem of mechanical nature. Usually the camera software detects the condition and goes into a lens error. In some cases the lens can be helped to move again.

When i turn on the camera the lens wont pop open even when the battery is fully charged.... i was taking pictures and it working fine turn the camera off and on again then the lens wont open anymore? i can...

The problem is
1- some dirt somehow got on the outside of the lense. After it was retracted fully in, it prevents the camera from opening again. When you turn it on, if it opens a little bit, try to pull it out NOT too hard and let go a few times. If it opened, clear the outside of the lense. Your camera should be back to normal.
2- If you droped the camera, you probably damaged or dislocated a mechanical part of the lense. You may have to take out the lense by unscrewing it and inspect it for damged parts or disconnected cable. Make sure clean the lense and test it by moving it in and out a few times, before puting it back on the camera.

Good luck!!!!!!!

I get a buzzing sound

Hello Rrosario35, This problem is related to the lens assembly. The camera will check if these work properly when it's being powered on. If something goes rong here it will turn off or display you some error messages. This problem occures when some of the lens mechanisms get out of place and jamms or damages other components. As the lens assembly is a very delicate mechanism I would suggest you to go back to the service center that fixed it the first time and ask them to check it. Don't try to power the camera on anymore because the lens assembly could be damaged further or beyound repair if the servo-motors are trying to alling the lens something jamms them and not allowing them to move properly. This will force the servo-motors and they could damage other components or themselves. It could be fixed, but don't force the camera to work anymore for the time being. Please post back if more informations are required.
