This seems to happen when something (water, sand, dust)
gets trapped in the lens mechanism.
Has the camera been somewhere filthy before?
The recommended methods include taping on the
bottom of the camera,rapping it on a table,
and pressing hard on the lens.
If the lens moves when you turn the camera on,
try keeping your hand on it so that i
t's forced back into the camera body.
A can of compressed air squirted around the
lens is also a possible fix...
but be super careful with that stuff,
a good hard blow of breath might be safer.

I'm not recommending that you do crazy stuff
to your camera, but if you're careful you may
be able to get it working again without having
to get it serviced.

Camera lens won't shut


This has to be THE most common failure mode for a digital camera. Some common error messages that might show up on the LCD's of cameras with this problem include "E18 lens error" (older Canons), "ACCESS" error (Sony), "Zoom Error" (Fuji), "Lens Obstructed" (Kodak), "lens error, restart camera" or just "lens error" (nearly all camera makers lately use this variation). Some cameras might show nothing at all, but merely make a beeping noise as the lens goes out, then in, then the camera shuts off. Sometimes the lens won't even move.

The gear linkage in the lens is seized or is out of alignment, this is a job for a camera specialist, I recommend estimate first.

HI. My Acer Aspire 3500 DVD drawer was I guess off track. The drawer wouldn't open so I pried it open. Now it won't stay shut and when it is shut I can't open it unless I use a paper clip.


There is very little you can, these items in general cannot be repaired. Go to www.ebay.com Type make and model of laptop, refine search to cd/dvd driver.

When camera is turned on the lens won't open, message comes up lens error will shut down automatically


Was the unit dropped or were any liquids messed onto the lens assembly previously ?
If dropped (particularly if the lens was open) the lens drive mechanism might well have suffered damage.
If liquids, particularly ones containing sugar, were accidently messed onto the lens assembly, then the sugar becomes sticky as the liquid dries, effectively glueing the mechanism in place.
