E:61:10 is flashing and zoom doesnt work..I tried the reset and turning it off and then on... but still doesn't work...I have (hybrid plus 25x Sony)camcorder

Listen, I know you are not going to believe this, but the lens is stuck because there is something binding it. The most popular method for freeing this up is to smack the lens about three times, not real hard, but give it a couple of good ones and this should free it up. After you do this make sure to hold it lens down in case something needs to fall out and clear itself out. You should be good to go. I am not kidding, this works...

In case of a problem or clarification or my solution was insufficient, don't hesitate to post me a reply.

If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

There is something wrong with my samsung l100. the lense is already out and when I turn it on and a beep sounds which lasts for like a second and then looking at the screen it is all blurry, i cant take...


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 centre 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.

You can also have a look at THIS link.

Hope the advise is useful. please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance. Also, please be so kind to let me know if you found this helpful.

My photo's are not sharp and clear. What am I doing wrong?

you could be doing nothing wrong, These cameras have auto focus and when there pas there prime, you need to get them fixed basically.

If the output is out of focus more then likely the auto focus is your issue.

Hope this does help, would be considerate if you do leave a rating or feedback before you go, Thanks

Is the power pack connected? make sure battery is charged (around 5 hrs) if nothing this means your camera has passed away, sad that as lots of that model failed like yours.

Ive just purchased a vivitar 830xhd camcorder and

The flash on the camcorder only works while taking still pictures, not for videos.

For still pictures, pressing the Flash button on the lower-left corner of the display gives you three options: Auto, On, and Off.

For videos, if you want more light, you're going to have to look elsewhere. Any good camera store can show you a selction of lights.

The camera turns on - but you cant take a picture

Your problem may be due to weak/worn out batteries or corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, your batteries may need to be replaced, or the camera may have a problem that requires professional repair.

My Camera Wont Turn On To Take Pictures

i had this problem also. i tried reinstalling the program on my computer, buying new batteries and charging them with an external charger. nothing seemed to work. i was convinced the problem lay with the camera.
i had taken the camera at one point to a very cold and dusty environment (a glacier). the lens cap started getting stuck after that, and it would occasionally not send out the lenses. i had dismantled it to clean it, which kind of worked.
this time, i was certain it was something to do with the recharging system in the camera. however when i opened it up i noticed 2 things...
a) one of the 4 base screws that hold the battery cover on, had been put back in the wrong place... these screws are about a millimeter longer than the other black screws, and in the wrong place could have been shorting it out.
b) the front and back covers are grounded by a strip of copper on the side opposite the strap retainer. these were crushed and could have been also grounding something out. i straightened the strips out and put everything back together, testing the on/off button after every couple of screws.
i am happy to say that i got mine back working again. i put my experience down to inexperience and the difficulty of doing a field repair the first time. tools required: magnifying glass, bright light, and a very fine philips screw driver (1mm).
p.s.: the lens caps still sticks partially closed, so i never did fix that problem. LOL!
