Re: lens won't come out?

Unless you are very good in micro repairs you will have a pile of junk in short time.
the camera has to be totally dissembled to get to the lens tracks and the 3 pins that hold the lens in place, the track may be damaged also.
as your camera sits its worth around 40 , even if you take it apart the lcd is worth 40 if you don't damage it.
the repair will likely be around 90+ from kodak,
if you take the iris apart you may never get it back together.
if you try to force the lens back in place you will damage the tracks and likely leave plastic bits in lens.

I am new user for DSLR, using old 50 mm 1.8 manual focus on D80, unable to see any inmage on playback (shows information). Will this lens work with D80, using settings as manual mode, f22 . Please guide...

Turn the aperture ring to its smallest setting (largest f/number). You control the aperture from the camera body, as on a lens without an aperture ring. Turn the mode dial to M (manual). The camera's exposure meter will not work with this lens. You can use another lens to get an approximate exposure, or take pictures and review them and/or use the histogram to fine-tune the exposure. The camera won't autofocus, of course, but the in-focus indicator in the viewfinder will still light up to indicate proper focus.

Try adjusting the zoom lens back into place. It may require a little force to re-seat the lens. If this doesn't work, then your camera needs professional service or replacement.

Screen and view finder not showing anything

Just covering the bases...
Make sure the lens cap is removed
Turn the ON/OFF switch to Favorite mode
Press EVF/LCD does it toggle
Look to see if the battery level ICON shows better then half
Battery combination sometimes will show a strong icon level
It may be strong in the other modes which draws less power then the picture taking mode.
My guess would be New Battery replacement.
Some tests were done that may be of value to your solution

The lens retracts and the camera powers off after turning it on

Hey bls_bls,
You could try cleaning the battery contacts, and if that doesn't work you could try a new battery. If your camera still doesn't work I would have it looked at by an authorized service technician. You could bring it to a Geek Squad® precinct in a Best Buy™ store and they should be able to send it to an authorized service center. I hope this helps!

Go Ahead. Use Us.

Black screen when I turn the camera on

You could be suffering from a frozen Iris. This is the part of the lens which varies the amount of light entering the camera. Or the lens cover may not be opening when you switch on. Have you tried pushing the middle button of the 3 which run vertically on the rear of the camera below the mode switch. I had one on my bench a few weeks back which had an intermittent black screen. It started of as black and when I stripped it, cleaned all contacts and put it back together it the flashed on and off. I then stripped it again and went over every cable associated with the lens, CCD and video board checking them for breaks and recleaning them and bingo, everything came good. I have another 72 at the moment with a similar problem, I fixed the same way but got left with lines running across the picture. P72's aren't the best cameras picture wise and are close to the most troublesome, at least around here. For any of the above faults I'd recommend a visit to your local tech. Good luck. BMW
