Broken lens


you would need alot of experience with tiny mechanics and also lens technology..... and a super-clean working area to prevent dust or finger smudges (probably take me a few hours)....... much easier to find a donor camera and replace the whole lens mechanism (would take me about 10 min).

I have a NIKON DX AF-5 Snikkor 18-105mm lens 13'5-5'6 GED lens That will come off the camera after being attached. Another lens AF-S Nikkor 70-300mm stays on. I dropped camera from 2 ft...


It seems like you've got a broken lens mount on the 18-105mm. Take a look at the backs of the two lenses. You should see the bayonet mount with three flanges. If one or more of the flanges on the 18-105mm are broken then the lens won't stay on.

If you feel up to doing the replacement yourself, you can order the part from

Otherwise have a trained technician replace the mount.

Nikon coolpix l21 camera lens error.


I have the identical camera. A camera lens error may occur for the following reasons;
a.) check your battery. Use the recharger wall set to charge the battery and then try your camera.
b.) lint, dust or greasy materials like skin oils and lotions may be clogging the mechanism allowing the lens to move. Clean it carefully with a cotton cloth and a TINY bit of isopropyl alcohol. Don't use a cotton swab because fibers from them are nearly as bad as the dust or lint.
c.) the camera may have been dropped and the mechanism actually broken. I cannot help you there.

Try the first two solutions and remember to comment if they are helpful, please.
Have fun taking pictures!

The lens has been damaged, or knocked out of alignment. There is a tiny motor that extends and retracts the lens, you will need to take it to a camera technician to assess whether it can be repaired or replaced.

My son is in the middle of Australia and dropped his Canon powershot sx130 camera. How do you reset it? He has no computer access.


You haven't said what the fault is with his camera, but it's most likely that his 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 Canon 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. Although the article mentions Canon a few times, the advice applies equally to all cameras with lens errors and is not model-specific.

If the link doesn't work then cut and paste the following address into your browser:-

Good luck, I hope you manage to use this information to fix your camera. Please take a moment to rate the speedy and free answer I have provided for you and any testimonial which you might wish to add is always welcome!

Bubbles in the photos


Hope the problem is not with the sensor. First try cleaning the lens with a clean dry cloth. If you can't get a microfiber cloth, use a clean cotton cloth. If you can still see some smears on the lens, put two drops of lens cleaning solution on the cloth and wipe carefully.
If you still find these bubbles, take the camera immediately to an authorized service center.

Slider on olympus c60 broken


Probably!

The slider is held in its groove by a plastic liner and part of mine wore away with the upshot that when I slid it open, the tiny pin on the slider dropped back a little way. We are only talking a tiny amount here but it was enough to activate the switch to reclose the lens so the thing was sliding in and out of its own accord as I rocked the slider.

I simply superglued in a tiny piece of plastic in where the worn away bit was and it cured it!

You don't have to disassemble the lens. My camera would lens extend , pause and then lens retract, pause again, then lens extend, pause and then lens retract. It would do this maybe 4 or 5 times before displaying "ACCESS" on the screen and then shut down completely.
Where the lens extends from the body is the area I am referring to, there is a tiny gap large enough to slide a sheet of paper into. That is the area I shot a tiny drop/burst of wd40 into. Wd40 is sort of electronic safe and most of it WILL evaporate.If you would like, send me your email address I will send a photo file-picture of how i did it. Hopefully it is the same problem.
