This is normal. It is like a soft power-off to conserve battery life. To turn it back on just hit the ON/OFF button again. And then turn it OFF with the same button and the lens should retract as normal. The time out only powers down the electronics, it doesn't power down everything. you have to turn the camera off manually to turn it ALL off, including retracting the lens.

Lense doesn't retract


Common faults for this:

The lens motor is defective, lens gears jammed. Fix is lens unit replacement.

The lens servo drive circuit is not functioning. Fix is to replace the circuit board that contains the lens servo control circuits.

The connector assembly between the lens is not making proper contact, or the lens wire assembly is defective. Fix is replacement of the cable and connectors if applicable in the particular model. If the connectors on the circuit board or lens are defective, then the appropriate unit must be replaced.

No power is going to the lens unit, and or the lens servo circuit. Fix is replacement of the drive circuit board, or the power inverter if it uses a separate feed for the lens only.

Generally, with these low cost cameras they generally do not pay to service out of warranty. The service cost can approach the cost of replacing the camera.

Common causes of failures in these cameras is from water (getting wet), or dropping, or rough usage.

D5100 won't power on with Sigma macro lens atttached


This is not a solution but the same kind of problem.

I just bought a Nikon D5100 and found that my Sigma 105mm macro has a problem. The camera will not power up, but if I turn it on, untwist the lens and then twist it back in, the camera powers up. If I leave it for a few seconds, it powers down again. Provided I keep taking photos, it works, but this is not acceptable because it can take several seconds to get a focus on a close-up, and by time I get the focus, the camera powers down again.

I never had any problems with this lens on my Nikon D80. I also use several lenses, all of which work well with both cameras. It's only the Sigma that has the problem. And I did clean the contacts with a proper contact cleaning solution and a swab, but still no joy. My lenses are made by Tamron, Pro Optic, Nikon and Sigma, and the only problem lens is the Sigma.

Foldable lens cover doesn' t open and closed fully... Thanks.


It's usually merely a grain of sand or dust jamming it. But it's also usually easy to fix. This link outlines repair techniques for a stuck automatic lens cover. Recommend trying the less "risky" ones first before considering the end of the lens.

Camera goes to sleep too quickly...is there a way to adjust?


To save battery power, the camera automatically goes into sleep mode and the monitor turns off if there is no operation after 3 minutes when the camera is turned on (when the lens cover is open and the monitor is on). No picture is taken even if the shutter button is fully pressed in this mode. Operate the zoom button or other buttons to restore the camera from sleep mode before taking a picture. If the camera is left on for 15 minutes, it automatically turns off (the lens cover closes and the monitor turns off). Press POWER to turn the camera on.

Lens does not open,camera does not start


From what you describe the problem could be a couple of different things. The focus element inside the lens may have come off its track. Heres how to tell: If the lens shield has closed completely and you can not see down into the lens: *Does any text come up on the LCD before it turns off? Such as "E18" or "E25"? If the lens shield has not closed completely and you can see down into the lens: *When you shake the camera can you see something moving inside the lens? In either of these cases the problem is that the camera cannot move the lens due to the moving parts being jammed. This will require a repair service to go into the camera and reset the dislodged elements. In either of these cases the camera will display an error message on the LCD before it powers off. If it does not do this, let me know and I will give you other possible explanations.
