Your suggestions won't work and there are no DIY fixes on cameras, especially with as many problems as yours has after dropping it. The screws are tiny and you have to disassemble in the correct order. Once you get it apart, you won't have the spares to fix the bent pieces, and then you need to put it all back together in the correct order. You need to get it professionally repaired. Although the camera is old, it is a good camera and worth getting repaired.
Thanks for using FixYa. With the
camera closed and off point it straight up (lens towards the ceiling) and hit
the power button while holding down the shutter release. When the camera
opened, it immediately tried to focus for the picture it was told to take, and
apparently it forced the lens to move.
also try blowing compressed air around the lens cover to clean it. Now slide a
thin strip of paper between the lens cover shutters and the outer support ring
and move it around 360 degrees. This will clear the debris stuck there. With the
lens barrel extended and pointed downward, tap the lens barrel with a pencil
while you extend and retract the lens by powering the camera on and off. Repeat
these steps several times to resolve the issue. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or
else revert for further assistance. Thanks Rylee
Lines across your pictures or pictures too bright are due to the shutter not closing correctly or at all.
to check this- turn camera on, turn off flash, turn camera around and look into the lens. Adjust the zoom so that the shutter and internal lens comes up to the end of the lens and whatch as you take a picture. You should see the shutter close completely over the lens. If it doesn't move or does not close over completely then there is your problem.
If camera was dropped it could have jammed the shutter open or obstructed it in some way from closing completely.
camera will require repair/ service.
You may have some luck if you power up and down your camera numerous times before taking a picture. The action of the lens opening and closing may free the shutter.
You can pull off the other one if you want. To put it back in your basically going to have to take apart the camera. The "Shutters" on the outside is nothing more but to protect the lens will its in the camera. The actual shutter is inside the lens that open and closes very quickly when you take a picture.
Think of it this way, the shutter in the lens opens up to let in light that shows the image to the sensor behind the lens. Then it closes to "finish" capturing the light".
The "shutters" or "doors" on the outside do not move once you take a picture. They only close once the lens retract. (When the camera is turned off or idles)
shutter problem. put camera into full optical zoom, turn it to face you and angle it so that you can see into the lens without reflection. In full zoom the internal lens is right up to the outer lens so, even on a small lens such as this, when you press the picture button you should see the shutter close across fully. If it does not you will get either an over exposed or complete white out picture. Or lines across your pictures.
The shutter needs to be cleaned. There is grease in the camera for the moving parts and is probable that this is the cause for the error.
I have found this to be the case for fuji's E900, E550, F40fd, F470, F460, and a few samsung's as well.
Check the lens. Does the diaphragm move freely when you move the f/stops? Put the lens on f/8 or f/16 and push the pin in, it should move freely and close to the f/stop you set. If not the blades may have oil on them. Also if it is free then set the lens to the smallest aperture and if there is a button push it in to lock for auto aperture set.
The symptom of "remove lens cover" always showing can be caused by two different things. If the lens assembly has become jammed and will not move when the camera tries to extend it - this can cause the message. On some cameras a stuck-closed shutter can cause this message as well.
The symptom you describe of seeing two images prior to the failure is strange. I cannot make any kind of conclusion from that information without further elaboration.
Does the lens extend when you turn the power on? If not the lens is jammed.
Do you see nothing but black all the time on the screen and the captured photos? If so the shutter is stuck closed.
Either of these problems will require complete disassembly and re-setting of the lens elements. Check with your manufacturer and see if they will fix it under warranty. If not, there are service providers available on the internet who can service your camera.
