Hello

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

Hope the advise is useful. please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance.

Regards
Andrea

Is not working properly


A good possibility is the zoom head is causing the clicking sound. As we zoom the flash, the inside of the head moves to the back and forward. Gently tap it a few times see if that helps. My guess is it needs servicing.

Depending of what you use, always be sure all batteries are the same, charged and suited for your camera. Most of the time even new Ni-CD rechargeable batteries won't work, because the voltage is to low, according to NiMH or alkaline batteries.
Always charge NiMH batteries before using them for the first time, or if they have not been used for a long period. 3 months is a very long period.
Always charge sets of batteries (2 or 4) together.
Do not use alkaline batteries unless it is absolutely necessary. In some cases, alkaline batteries may have a shorter service life than NiMH. Alkaline battery performance is limited, especially at low temperatures. The use of NiMH batteries is recommended.
Never use manganese (Zinc-Carbon) batteries in your camera.

Yashica T Zoom dont turn on only shows battery outline flashe's


Have you found a solution to your problem?
I am having the same problems with my Yashica T4 Zoom.

At least I have a suspicion, what it could be! ;-)

I think one of the electrical components needs to be replaced. Behind the battery compartment there is a big capacitor installed. It is only to be seen, when opening the camera's body. I think that this capacitor might be broken. Since it is used to store energy, this might very well be the reason the camera does show a blinking battery symbol.

I don't think that the repair is worth the camera.

Sorry ... for the both of us. :-(

I have an old Canon 105 zoom sure shot. I want to get the old film out but the battery is dead. I don't want to purchase a new battery. How can I accomplish this? Thank you reedcm@verizon.net


If you have a changing bag, you can put the camera inside, open the back, remove the film, and rewind it by hand. You can also do the same in a darkroom (a photographic darkroom, not just a dark room). A good camera store can do it, though you'll probably also have to have the film processed there.

If you have any plans to use the camera in the future, you may as well invest in a battery now. You can take the battery out of the camera and set it aside to preserve the charge.

METZ 48 af-1 N "err at the place where zoom value displays in LCD


Is seem a little bit strange but it worked for fine me
The problem is mechanical. The zoommirror in the flashhead is stuck. Mostly it is a minor opstacel. That is the reason that sometimes the problem is solved by placing new batteries. The zoommotor has a little bit more power en can overcome the minor opstacel.
When the zoom is blocked it cannot be controled by the stering software and therefore it gives an error.
Solution
1. remove flash from our camera (power off).
2. knok with something hard, I used my fingerknuckle, on the side of your flash head.
3. repeat that for each side (i knocked twice on each side).
4. place our flasher on the camera and power on both.
5. If the problem isn't solved repeat it

It worked for me the first time.

Can I get an owners manual for this camera ?


I don't reconize the model number but is this a new camera......it seems to me that this may be in the range of 20-25 years old.....if so the original manual was pretty scant..........but the camera was great....try the normal sources.....ebay, amazon, and maybe even C-Net.

Sorry for the vagueness. You might even try a google search for something like "yashica camera forum" "yashica photo forum" even "yashica forum". you will more than likely have to filter thru some info and then refine your search terms.

Canon Sure Shot 105 ZOOM ~TOTALLY LOST ~need any instructions I can get.


The flashing H means hat the camera has detected a hardware fault on starting up. It can also mean that the film has mis-loaded. Try removing the film & then the battery to reset it. Put the battery back & switch on. If it's still doing it then I'm afraid it's got the 'flashing "H" of Doom'. Although this is repairable, it's usually not economically viable.

FX8 all button frozen


I am not sure if this is a solution. but one time, i turned on my camera when the battery is really drained. usually (when it was broken) it will automatically zoom in. but that certain period when i turned it on, even before it can zoom in, the battery drained and the camera went off. i charged the battery and when i put it back and turned on the camera, it works fine. it is still working fine. good thing i didnt had the repair center fix it, because they charge really high price.

My camera wont turn off


I've purchased several of these cameras used as we liked our first on and it eventually failed with this same problem. I have had four of these now and they all end up with this same problem. Take the battery out then turn the selector to any new position and then off, put the battery back it and the lens should recline and camera turn off. One of the cameras would then work for a while after doing this but then hang up again. I think this is a very common problem based on my experience but no other confirmation than yours.
