Optical lense stuck in the "out" position

My 13 year old daughter used our camera and now the optical zoom lense stays in the "out" position. I turn the camera on and the screen lights up for less than a second and turns off. To the left of the on/off dial, a flashing blue light goes off when I turn the camera on (and turns off a second later). The optical lense always stays in the out position.

When i dropped my dx7630, a tiny plastic part broke that worked the holdback spring for the battery. Kodak has a repair service, or a referral service for repairs, but you have to send the camera in. i sent it in. they emailed me to say it was not a repairable part and didn't even ask if i wanted it back. luckily, i kept the memory chip. the C875 i bought was $100 cheaper and had 1M more pixels. good luck with your natural light photography from now on. i think Kodak just figures you buy a new camera whenever anything goes wrong, it'll be better and cheaper anyway.

Minolta x500 shutter arm stuck

A Minolta X500 is a 15+ year old camera. The shutter arm is stuck in the winding position is an indication that the shutter mechanics are broken. Repair would be way more expensive then picking up a used model. Minolta has dropped out of the camera business, some older Sony digital cameras can use their lenses if you have a number of them. Zoom lenses are usually what comes with most camera kits.

Hi, My daughter (12 years old) saved her money and bought a Nikon Coolpix L11 camera (SN# 34031249)from Target 8 months ago. She dropped it resulting in the following: - A silver round lens front...

The problem here is that the optical block has shifted. The lens error is a result of the motor's inability to move anything inside to the "home" position. The crack might be in the lens itself or in the CCD behind the lens. In either case, "repairing" the lens area won't fix that problem. Check around for another similar camera that has other problems and completely replace the lens assembly. check with local shops asking for scrap units that your daughter can play with. A bit of luck will get you the parts you need. Paying for the replacement parts will likely cost more than the original camera.

My canon 5x optical zoom 16.0 is telling me Memory card locked

Look at your memory card. SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

The camera did not record voice of movie when I use the optical zoom

From page 80 of this manual: "Optical zoom blocks sound being recorded when zooming."

Many cameras do this as otherwise the recording will include the sound of the lens being zoomed. There are two possible workarounds for this: 1) Don't use the optical zoom while recording. 2) Use an external sound recorder to record the soundtrack and mix them together on the computer.
