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.

My autofocus will not work all the time. when I want to zoom in for closeups it will be out of focus

This means that there is a alignment issue as the auto focus seems out of setting. This can be due to damage on the settings or a possible shift in the lens setting. This is due to a damage on the lens setting or a jammed motor drive. You will need some expertise to remove and check or reset the lens settings. If not take consensus as a false move can do more harm. need to remove the camera and the auto focus in the lens hood to test the motor drive, movement and action.

Our Canon EOS Rebel XSi no longer works on auto focus. The flash works but the camera just makes clicking noises and the screen says "busy". Any suggestions? The camera works fine in manual...

Optical focus relies on a gear driven motorized system to focus the lens. It sounds like the drive is either frozen by a foreign object (it doesn't take much) has gotten into the system, or a tooth has worn/broken on the gearing.

Try taking the lens off and blowing the camera out with some canned air. If that doesn't do it, it's a trip to the repair center.

My sony DSC H4 lens is stuck outside and it doesn go in .. the lens moves back and forth and is stuck ... the lens is also unable to focus.

Hi, Have you dropped your camera on the lens since I've seen that cause it before. If not then it's possible that the motor in the lens has gone. Either way it would be a costly repair which there's a 50/50 chance it would actually work again. Your best bet would be to get a new camera.

Hi I cannot get my F80 to autofocus. I have tried all my lenses on my Brothers F80 and they all work fine on his camera. I only bought the camera second hand a few days ago and i'm 99% sure when the...

If the gears are stripped, it will require an experienced tech to repair.

That being said, there should be a small switch near the lens mount to switch between auto and manual focus mode's, be sure that that switch is pointing to A. When set to M, the little screw recesses into the mount so it doesn't try to engage, when set to A, it'll extend very slightly.

Also, Nikon has manufactured two types of AF lenses - with the motor in the body and with the motor in the lens, as with most newer lenses. Your camera should have a small screw on the lens mount that drives the focus motor between the lens and the camera, but I'm not 100% certain on that. Your camera can focus lenses with and without this type of coupling. BUT, if that screw/motor in the body is not functioning, you'll only be able to use lenses which contain the focus motor inside them, or manual focus lenses (you can manually focus AF lenses too).

This lens makes a whirring noise when attached to the camera body. It will not focus in either manual or automatic. The camera works well with the other lens.

Sounds like the focus mechanism is broken on that lens. There's a small screw on the back of it where it meets the camera body, the motor in the camera body turns that screw to autofocus. To me it sounds like the screw is turning, but the lens isn't focusing. You said it also doesn't focus in manual mode, so there is probably something inside the lens that needs repair or replacement. Your best option is to take it to a camera repair shop and ask them for an estimate, camera lenses are not the kind of thing you can take apart and fix on your own. Hope that helps.

Lens is stuck shutter is open, changed batteries , tried new batteries, inserted SD card, installed AV lead, put some lubricating oil around lens layers, Any other ideas... Please N.

Do not put any oil into the set as you can get it worse.The only possibility is the failure of controller unit of the camera.The motor drives are not working , canbe not signal from the mP.
You will need to get this checked at the Samsung service centre for estimation.

When I turn my camera on, it will than read: "lens error, restart camera."

Lens errors are fairly common. 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. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ...

Here's some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seem to work for less than 50% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try:

Zoom Error, Lens won't close

There are several causes for this to happen.
1. The lens assy is out of alignment and stuck; stalling the motor.
2. The motor itself is defect
3. If you can hear the motor working , then it will be a stripped plastic gear between motor drive and lens assy.
DIY repair not recommended (possible)
