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.

If the camera is a new one then do not attempt to open but take the warranty cover.

If is possible that the lens error is due to failure of the lens control system. You can remove battery and card replace battery and while switching on tap the lens hood on your hands so as to disengage any dirt or mechanism being struck.
Use some air to blow between the lens to dislodge any sand particles struck inside. Unless you are familiar with handling of small devices must the camera be opened. If so check the voltage on the motor drive, check the auto focus and Zoom drives, it must be free with manual movement. If jammed the motor can be removed and realased. If none of these works then you can think of taking consensus with the service centre.
Get estimate before you decide. It will be good to have it checked at the authorised service as you do not have to run around for spares.

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.

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.

I have an Intova IC 600 and the lens is stuck out.. hear the motor running but doesnt slide back in..

Hello mond328,
It sounds like your lens retraction gear has become disengaged. It is possible to gently push the lens inward to re-engage the gear. If this doesn't work, then the gear may be stripped or broken. If this is the case, then it isn't cost effective to repair the camera. Unfortunately, IC600 is a discontinued model for which we do not have any replacements. We do however have other cameras with similar waterproof capabilities. If you are interested, please call us directly at 877-837-0074 or 808-837-0074 or email .
Best Regards,

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)
