The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

Hope the advise is useful. please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance.

Hi i can't used my yashica EZ digital 5032 everytime i put sd card tells it error or no card

Your SD card may have failed. Have you tried a different SD card in your camera? If you have and it still isn't working, it may be the camera.

My yashica ez f5 zoom is giving a problem that is shown on the screen protected card ; what can i do to slove the problem.

Look at your memory card. SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

Kyocera finecam 410 "cover open"

i had a camera that did the same thing. on mine there was a little tab on the memory card cover door thing that pushed a little button. i think a piece of the little tab on mine broke off so it wasnt pushing the button so i took a little piece of paper or something and folded it really small and set it on top of the little button thing and then closed the door and that worked for me

Can I get an owners manual for this camera ?

I don't reconize the model number but is this a new seems to me that this may be in the range of 20-25 years old.....if so the original manual was pretty scant..........but the camera was great....try the normal sources.....ebay, amazon, and maybe even C-Net.

Sorry for the vagueness. You might even try a google search for something like "yashica camera forum" "yashica photo forum" even "yashica forum". you will more than likely have to filter thru some info and then refine your search terms.

"Cover opened" error message

Defective mechanism, a stucked mechanism is present. camcorder are smart it can detects error and shuts down itself for safety. earlier models dominoes the defect if the user is not quick enough to react when something goes wrong with the camera. You need professional service to fix it.
