Question about Science & Laboratory
Unable to see the slide when it is placed on the stage. appears to be as if the lens is covered but is not. the light comes on when facing away from the stage at an angle.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

SOURCE: lens only comes half way out
I had a problem that may be related to yours. From time to time, whenever I opened the cover, the lens wouldn't work properly. It would make a grinding noise and then when I took pictures they would all come out out of focus. After much fiddling about, I eventually discovered that if I set ALL RESET to FALSE on the SETUP menu, it returned to normal. Possibly this could fix your problem. Otherwise maybe its a battery problem. My camera sometimes refuses to take pictures when the battery is low.

SOURCE: Lens cover slide stuck closed
Take a butter knife and slide it where the crease is. move the close/open button till it open it could just be stuck due to moisture. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: dark picture taking on stage
You need to run it with aperture priority, and have the aperture as wide open as possible (The lower the number the better). You've got the kit lens, which is a notoriously poor performer in low light conditions, you should consider getting one of the Sigma DG lenses.
The other alternative is to get as close up to the stage as possible, and use the smaller lens that would have come with the camera kit. It's a little faster.

SOURCE: Adapter ring cover problem
Maybe the adapter ring release button is stuck after you pushed it in to release the cover. Try giving it a good flicking until you are sure it has popped out.
