Such a common problem with an amazinging simply fix. bang it face down on your palm several times quite hard. Turn on and check. keep doing this till the lens extends properly.
Whilst this sound like a joke it is not A Sony tech shared this with me and said that they charge $90 to do this. Amazing isn't it!

    oK If you got it to work from the fiox i gave you and then failed again then it needs a bit more persuasion. If you can obtain a can of compressed air or know someone with a compressor ( some mechanics have them at the garage) blow air around the lens structure and repeat my fix a few times. The addition of the air and the Kludgy fix will eventuall get it functioning again. Be persistant , but do also try the compressed air. You can buy cans of it

Lens on my S7000 doesn't retract when switched off - now permanently extended - and camera dead


This is going to require service / repair at the shop, not something you will be able to correct.

I turn on my camara and then the lens makes a noise and it turns of right away,i charge the battery (fully) and it still turns off


maybe because you have a lens error trouble, Lens errors (system 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 ...Here are some troubleshooting steps that you can try that may (or may not) correct it. 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:wish you luck thanks

When i turn my camara on the lens extends then closes it does it about 3 time then tells me to turn the camara off then on...... i do and it does it again!!!!! how can i fix this?


Most of the lens issues due to mechanical problem. some of the causes are dropping the camera.
Hard shake like keeping the Camera in the hand and jump through steps, Moisture condensation, Insufficient battery.. etc If If you feel that the issue is not with the above reason. Remove the battery, reinsert after 2 minutes to perform a power reset and check the operation.
If it doesn't resolve, please use a solvent in the lens ejecting face and remove the possible dust..
The main cause of the issue is because of the lens movement difficulty

Hello

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.

Regards
Andrea

So I bought a Kodak camera with great customer support and will never buy another HP Product again.

My problem was solved!

The "Access" screen disappeared and my camera was back to normal.
