    I read a similiar problem and tried what they said - gentle wiggle the lens. It immediately turned on and the lens went back in and out. Works great now! Thanks for your help... Tom

Hi!
There could be two problems:
1. Lens problem - stuck (damaged or sand / dirt inside the reductor and / or lens)
2. Faulty motherboard - happens to the Sony S series cameras.

I'm afraid you will have to give it away for a repair, you should contact your local Sony service center.
I work in a Sony service center and I know what I'm talking about.

Hope this helps!

Tom

Camera says change the batteries with new batteries installed


Is the lens not coming out at all? did you check is the lens is blocked somehow?
When a mechanical problem occurs, this can be a trigger for the camera to shut down, before something becomes (more) damaged. Did something happen the last time you used the camera?
Was the camera switched of for a very long time?

Camera powers on, lens comes out and then shuts down without the lens coming back in? Whats up?


Hi,
It indicates your lens is getting stuck inside .

First go with hard reset . Remove the batteries and insert new batteries . This in most case works well .If your problem still persists then check for the following :
* Carefully inspect around it for dirt or debris.
If you see any dirt or debris around the lens, use canned air to gently blow it away.
* After removing dirt and debris, turn the camera on and off.

If your problem still continues you need to contact the service center to get your problem solved .

Hope this helps .
Do rate this solution .

Camer keeps shutting off...it's burry and powers


Digital cameras require lots of power. Bad electrical contacts can cause lots of problems so battery and camera contacts must be cleaned properly. Batteries may be fully charged, but will be viewed as low if contacts are not really good. The LCD screen is a low steady load, but when lens extension, optical zoom, focus, and flash charging are added in the capture mode; the load is very heavy. Bad contacts make cameras do strange things like making bad pictures or shutting off with the lens out.
Do not overcharge.
Reset by removing power up to one month is the ultimate non-physical repair for DVD recorders and other software using digital devices. Digital cameras reset to original settings if batteries are removed. Time required varies with function and camera, but try one minute. Check display and setup menu for non-auto functions and date/time. Remove extra memory to eliminate this as a possible problem. Insert fully charged batteries and restart the camera.

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!!!

My kodak easyshare V1253 Powers up, then shuts off


You have damaged your lens. If the camera can not move the lens it goes through a built in diagnostics test and shuts down. Beyond repair as cost to replace is beyond the value of your camera.

Rollei camera powers up and then shuts down


I would strongly suggest new, I mean NEW batteries, first.
You may be confident with your current batteries, but don't trust any rechargables you have, as they lose their 'power' (ability to supply enough current at the nominated voltage).
Also, don't trust any cheap batteries you have, definately no carbon type batteries.
Go buy some new Alkaline batteries (Energizer or Duracell, or some cheap Panasonic or Varta alkalines) and then we'll go from there.
This is an important step. Sorry if I'm stating the obvious, but a far far majority of digital camera faults and power related.
Let us know how this works out.

**.The best way to acknowledge contribution is to rate it's relevance.**

Samsung S1065 does not turn on, beeps 3 times before powering off. Lens is extended, have checked batteries, not sure what else to do??


I had the same problem, firstly you will be able to press the button on the back to view your pictures, when you do and the camera powers up quickly press the menu button. Check that your battery settings are set to alkaline, then buy some good alkaline batteries and not cheap ones. Check that they are alkaline and not like what I did and bought panasonic zinc carbon.
This worked for me and mine would not turn on either until i changed the batteries to a good make.

Powers up and then shuts off


This should work for the A520. With NEW or freshly recharged batteries, remove the camera's memory card, then turn on the camera. You'll probably see an E30 error. Next turn off the camera. Next insert the memory card, and turn on the camera.

If the above doesn't work, the following blog outlines some other repair options for a lens error. They won't work for all cases, but they're worth a try if the camera's no longer under warranty:
