Probably it can be fixed, but if the lens gears are too damaged the repair could be much expensive and you would prefer to buy a new one.
Take your camera to a qualified technician to check the price of a repair.

Dropped camera zoom lens is stuck


Here are some troubleshooting steps that you can try that may (or may not) correct your problem. They only seem to work for less than 40% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty (or repair cost approaches that of the camera), they're worth that try. Some of the later steps do involve some risk to the camera, so carefully weigh your options before deciding to conduct them. And am guessing that your lens may be crooked from the fall, so you may need to progress to Fix 7b first to straighten it before proceeding with the others. Good luck!

Some stupid person has dropped and then kicked my brand new Samsung camera and now it won't turn on and the lens is stuck out :( When I try to turn it on it makes a weird beep and won't turn on and...


You should try to get that stupid person to buy you a new camera if the following doesn't help. Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ...

The Lens is stuck in the out position and wont re-track back in.


The lens has probably got something in the retraction mechanism that is stopping it retracting. This can be something as simple as sand or grit or as a result of a drop or knock. In most cases the camera will need to be stripped apart to remove the lens assy before it can be repaired. This is best left to a professional camera repair shop.

Lens mechanism is broken due to dropped. You need to replace lens assembly. If you know how to apart camera and replace lens assembly then let me know to guide you. Or take camera to local repair shop for fix.

Auto focus quit working


Did it get dropped when the camera was open? If so it could have made the lens pop out more on one side. I'm not sure how to really explain it. When you open the camera, the thing that comes out might be off track I guess you could say. What setting are you using it on?

Camera lens stuck


We dropped our Samsung s730 (twice!) and got the lens jammed slightly sideways. I read a blog somewhere about this and just did what she said- If it is stuck out and obviously jammed sideways, push on the lens the way it should sit. I had to press really hard, but it snapped back into place and now works fine!

This WILL NOT work if: The lens retracts normally and goes back out normally, or it is not OBVIOUSLY stuck slightly askew. Sadly, with cameras this low in price about the only option is to replace it as repairs would cost more than a replacement.

In the future I plan on getting a squaretrade.com damage warranty on ALL my small 'droppable' electronics, it is pretty inexpensive (usually the same price as 'store brand' extended warranties that only cover defects).

Try to remove your batteries for a minute and then reattach them again.
