SOURCE: my Lumix won't stick it's lens out.

I recently had this problem after a trip to a sandy beach. The solution was to take the camera apart and blow out all the sand and dust. To help you get it apart, take off all the obvious outside screws and then unhinge the back and front, with the hinge point being the top. The back and screen can easily be removed by tugging on the cables where they fix into the circuit board. (Just push the large cable back in, for the smaller cable you need to use the little hinge on it (initially put the hinge towards the edge of the camera, insert the small cable, then fold the hinge back towards the centre of the camera. Continue to take out small silver coloured screws with a jeweler's screwdriver. I was able to get to the elecromechanical optical train in this way. I did not have to remove the tiny black screws inside this unit. After thorough cleaning and blowing out dust/ sand etc. the camera was fairly easy to put back together. Total time was about 90 minutes. Note: there was no need to take off any of the buttons on the top, nor to take out the battery nor memory card. Good luck.

SOURCE: Kodak DX7440 Lens Cover does not open or close properly

It is a common, but in most cases intermittent problem with many cameras regardless of brand/model. I also own Kodak DX7440 since late 2004, and I had this problem twice, in 2007 and 2008. First suggestion: fully recharge the battery, it helped me the first time. Second: play with the lens cover, that is try to open/close it with the camera on/off. With me, in 5 min of these attempts, it suddenly fixed itself and stays this way for one month now. Another suggestion: dont use a toothpick, since it can scratch the lens. Use a q-tip, and to avoid cotton threads sticking to lens, wet the q-tip and let it dry.

SOURCE: Sony RM-ASP001 for 400 disk changer stopped working

Try the command code switch. I recently had a similar problem when my remote suddenly stopped working. It worked fine one time but nothing the next time I tried it.

I checked the emitter with a digital camera and found it was not working. I did the remote reset (remove batteries and push all the buttons twice, reinsert batteries) and the emitter was now working. However, the remote would still not control the base unit. I did the remote base code reset (push power, volume and TV/DVD buttons together) but this did not help. I then checked the command code switch. This is a small three position slide switch located in the battery compartment on the remote. I slid the switch back and forth several times returning to the default number one setting where it was before. I did not change anything on the base unit but the remote now worked.

Hope this helps.

I have a Canon PowerShot A430 camera. When I turn it on, the lens doesn't open and it shuts off. The message on the screen says " Lens error, restart camera." Please advise. Thanks


Hi,

The Lens Error is displayed on the LCD screen when the Lens Mechanism is stuck or when affected by any malfunction. If turning the power on and off again does not resolve the error message, try doing a power reset and Initialize option.
Performing a manual power reset
Turn off the camera.
Remove the battery pack.
Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds.
Allow the camera to remain without power for 60 seconds.
Reinsert the battery pack.
Turn on the camera.
You can reset the Camera back to factory default by performing the following steps:
Press the power button.
Press and hold the MENU button for more than 5 seconds. Default Settings will get displayed.
Use the arrow buttons to select OK and press the FUNC./SET button. This will reset all the settings back to factory deafult.
This should resolve the issue. If the issue persists, service may be required.

Thanks for contacting FixYa

Wont take a photo - wont focus


Assuming it is not a new camera and you do not have it set to manual mode and you know how to operate it appropriately - it could be a broken lens, dirty contacts, frozen firmware, or broken camera. First try turning your camera off - wait at least 15 seconds - then try a different lens. If the camera works with a different lens - then it is your lens. If you do not have a different lens, using a pencil eraser, clean the brass (gold color) contacts that can be found on the lens and camera where they connect. Make sure you do not get any eraser particles in the camera or you will have more problems. Once done turn your camera on. If it works it was dirty contacts. If it still does not work it could just be frozen firmware. Turn the camera off and remove the battery. Then replace the battery and turn the camera on. Remove the batter will get the camera to "reset." If it still does not try uploading the firmware again - preferable with an update if available. If it still does not work it is with the camera - sorry.

Suddenly the lens began going in and out and now it is stuck halfway out. Someone suggested banging it to unsyick it but that did not help. Our local camera shops do not work on Sony cameras. Any ideas?


Hi,

The Lens may start going in and out when the Lens mechanism is stuck or when affected by any malfunction. If turning the power on and off again does not resolve the issue, try doing a power reset and Initialize option.

Performing a manual power reset

Turn off the camera.

Remove the battery pack.

Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds.

Allow the camera to remain without power for 60 seconds.

Reinsert the battery pack.

Turn on the camera.

To reset the Camera back to factory default, select the INITIALIZE Option from the SET UP1 Menu of the Camera to OK.This will set the user defined settings back to factory default. The images and videos will not get deleted.


If the issue persists, service may be required. For getting the unit serviced, you have to contact the Sony Authorized service centre or factory service centre. You can contact Sony here.


Thanks for using FixYa.

  1. Verify that the lens cap is not covering the camera lens.
  2. If operating the camera with a battery, ensure the battery is fully charged.
  3. If operating the camera with the power adapter, ensure it is plugged into a working AC outlet.
  4. Verify that the LCD screen is turned on.
  5. Adjust the LCD brightness control.
  6. Change the shutter speed or aperture settings.
  7. If the issue is not resolved, try resetting the camera.

Using an Initialize option in the menu

Since Cyber-shot cameras have different menu system layouts, refer to the instruction manual specific for your camera model.

Using a RESET button

  1. Locate the RESET button on the camera.
  2. Use a pointed object (like a ballpoint pen) to press and hold the RESET button for 2-3 seconds.
  3. After 2-3 seconds has elapsed, release the RESET button.

Performing a manual power reset

  1. Turn off the camera.
  2. Remove the battery pack.
  3. Remove the button-sized lithium battery.
  4. Allow the camera to remain without power for 30 seconds.
  5. Reinsert the button-sized lithium battery.
  6. Reinsert the battery pack.
  7. Turn on the camera.

V705 camera lens won't close. I had this problem a year ago and it was corrected by taking out the battery, doing something else that I don't remember.


You can try doing this steps in correcting the problem of your camera.

Remove the batteries from the camera, wait a few minutes. Put a fresh set of batteries back in and turn the camera on. If that didn't work, try pressing and holding the Function or OK button while turning the camera on.
If the camera's batteries ran down completely while the its lens was still open, the camera may show a lens error or not start properly when new batteries are installed. Remove the memory card and keep it removed, then install the new batteries. When you turn the camera on with the card removed it may come back to life, as this triggers a reset in some cameras.
Insert the cameras Audio/Video (AV) cable, and turn the camera on. Inserting this cable ensures that the camera's LCD screen remains off during the start process. Thus extra battery power is available to the camera's lens motor during startup.
Place the camera flat on its back on a table, pointed at the ceiling. Press and hold the shutter button down, and at the same time press the power-on button.
Blow compressed air in the gaps around the lens barrels with the idea of blowing out any sand or grit that may be in there jamming the lens. Other variations include blowing with a hair dryer in “no heat” setting, or sucking the gaps with a vacuum

Lens error lens wont close what to do?


Hi,The problem is actually quite common throughout all camera brands. 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. Here are different solutions to this problem;

Fix #1: Remove the batteries from the camera, wait a few minutes. Put a fresh set of batteries back in (preferably rechargeable NiMH 2500mah or better) and turn the camera on. If that didn't work, try pressing and holding the Function or OK button while turning the camera on.
Fix #2: If the camera's batteries ran down completely while the its lens was still open, the camera may show a lens error or not start properly when new batteries are installed. Remove the memory card and keep it removed, then install the new batteries. When you turn the camera on with the card removed it may come back to life, as this triggers a reset in some cameras. Error E30 (for older Canon's) means that you don't have a memory card installed, so turn it off, slip in the SD card and turn it on one last time

Fix #3: Insert the cameras Audio/Video (AV) cable, and turn the camera on. Inserting this cable ensures that the camera's LCD screen remains off during the start process. Thus extra battery power is available to the camera's lens motor during startup. This extra power can be useful in overcoming grit or sand particals that may be jamming the lens. If the AV cable doesn't fix the lens error by itself, consider keeping this cable installed while trying fixes 4, 5, and 7 as a means to provide extra power to help to these fixes. But note that I DON'T recommend keeping the cable installed during Fix 6 as you may damage the AV port while tapping the camera. Reinsert the cable only AFTER tapping the camera.

Fix #4: Place the camera flat on its back on a table, pointed at the ceiling. Press and hold the shutter button down, and at the same time press the power-on button. The idea is that the camera will try to autofocus while the lens is extending, hopefully seating the lens barrel guide pins back into their slots.

Fix #5: Blow compressed air in the gaps around the lens barrels with the idea of blowing out any sand or grit that may be in there jamming the lens. Other variations include blowing with a hair dryer in “no heat” setting, or sucking the gaps with a vacuum (careful with this one). Some people also have actually used a "Shop Vac" with this fix to help extend a retracted lens.
Thanks and take care

Green light on camera back to the right of the 'delete' button continually flashes on-off about 1 second intervals as soon as battery is inserted as long as CF card is in place. Switching camera ON...


I would start by looking into the memory card slot to see if you have a bent pin. You may need a small light and a magnifying glass to see them.
If the pins are okay, then you can try a reset by holding down the BKT and metering buttons together for 2 seconds. The metering button is on the left, behind the off/on/release.

Thirdly, you can try a firmware update on the camera which can be found here:

Buzzing sound, wont come on!


Don't try and manually push in the lens at first...the buzzing is a warning letting you know that something is wrong with the camera. By accidently removing the batteries during shut down you interupted the shut down sequence. Try and turn on the camera and immediately press the play button on the back. This should reset the camera. If not and if you are under warranty it needs to be serviced. If you are not under warranty then you can try and push the lens down. Don't use a lot of force but try and gently do it.
