Re: Powers on Lens move in then out,Blank display
Hi...The transmission system that moves the lens in and out has a problem with it's gears. There is most likely a gear or an actuator that has fallen out of alignment and is getting stuck at a certain point as the lens comes in/out.There is some disturbacnce of the lens arrangement that is preventing the lens from coming in/out.Any of these symptoms above could trigger the camera to shut itself off to protect itself from further damage. thank u rate me!!!

Hi, Please remove the battery for few hrs and charge them after that replace the battery and try to power on if the problem persist then take to any service center the firmware needs to be updated or there is some short in the circuit board of the cam.
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.
these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.
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).
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.
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
Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair
center 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.
When the camera is turned on, the lens is stuck either in or out and the camera gives the error E104 , E105 , or E106 . The camera then turns itself off.
These errors display because the lens will not move. There are several reasons why the camera lens might not move:
something is blocking the lens
the firmware version is old
the camera has been abused
foreign material is inside the lens
the lens is loose or completely off the track
Follow all of the steps listed below.
Perform a power reset on the camera.
Turn off the camera and remove any optional memory card.
Hold the ON/OFF switch in the ON position until the HP logo displays and then disappears.
The camera is now reset. When the camera is turned back on it should prompt for the date and time.
If the camera does not display an error after the reset and appears to be functioning properly, it is imperative to check and update the firmware. The firmware update corrects the lens positioning issue that can cause E104, E105, and E106 errors with the camera.
Determine if an update is needed by following the steps below to check the current version of the firmware on the camera:
Before turning the camera on, press and hold the Flash button.
While the Flash button is depressed, turn on the camera. A Service Screen displays.
Located at the bottom of the screen is an entry, F/W.
