Some Canon user forums have posted that you can GENTLY tap the lens with a softer object (wood preferred) and the lens will go back upon the next power up. I have not tried this, but they say it works, but you should be extremely careful.

I have a Sony Cybershot W150. My zoom is broken, i can zoom in, but when i try to zoom out nothing happens - PLEASE help!!

Your camera has a lens error. This is such a common fault that I hope you don't mind me pasting my stock generic answer below. No point in reinventing the wheel!

Stuck lenses are probably the most common reason that compact digital cameras get thrown away, but there's a fair chance of recovering use of your camera again

The fault is commonly caused by dirt or grit blocking the mechanism, or due to it having suffered a recent fall. Another common cause is that the camera was in a pocket or bag and the power button accidentally activated and tried to open the lens against resistance. The mechanism may have simply become dislodged or there may be parts which have broken.

If your camera is still under warranty and has definitely not been subject to misuse then contact the Sony service department in your country to find out about a free repair. If the warranty has expired though a professional repair will far exceed the cost of replacing your camera. You will therefore have nothing to lose by trying to fix this yourself.

Please click here and you will be taken to an excellent article provided by the Camera Repair website. For the most part, you'll be guided on how to physically manipulate your camera to try and clear the fault.

Good luck, I hope you manage to use this information to fix your camera. Please take a moment to rate the free answer I have provided for you.

I have a Casio Exilim Zoom EX-Z80 Digital Camera. And my promblem is that once i zoom out everything is blurry. The whole picture is blurry but once I zoom out it is a bit better but not as much. I need...

Try cleaning the lens gently with a lens cloth or maybe a damp paper towel? Other than that - you may have something stuck in your lens that is making everything blurry when you zooom in...or the lens may need to be replaced to be fully functional. Do you notice any blurry spots when you zoom out that get bigger when you zoom in? If so something may be stuck in your lens. Good luck!

Zoom error, Fujifilm J150w

I just pulled apart the camera, everything inside was intact. No cogs broken. couldnt find anything to fix (not a camera expert by the way).

In desperation even put some WD40 on the lens barrel - still no luck.

Camera turns on - barrel is stuck out. Wont zoom, wont go back in and wont take a photo.

Daughter's camera and she says she didnt drop it but just saw it on her desk with the lens out...

Would be good if someone could shed some light on the problem.

Samsung L85 camera image issues

If your camera is still under warenty here is number of the repair center in Ca. 310 632-1234. Have model number and serial of camera at hand. They may have you go on line to their web site and fill out a repair request.

Forewarned :I purchaced a L85 new before
Thanksgiving and it did not work out of the box at all. Sent in camera and it was returned on Dec. 20th. I sent the battery with camera and none was returned. After buying another battery and charging, to my frustration the camera worked only enough to extend the lens and flash the LCD screen and that's it. I am trying to get an exchange from seller but am not to confident this is going to happen. Lots of emails back and forth but no progress.
Hope you have better luck then I am having.
