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 are 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.

It sounds like a backlight or inverter problem. You can verify this by using a bright light to shine on the screen surface. If you can see the picture (but it will be very dark) that means that the backlight which illuminates the screen from behind. You would have to replace the inverter to test it, but there is good news: These are pretty difficult to find parts for, and not an easy repair for an amateur; acer products usually have a 3 year warranty on the backlight/inverter system, so I would start there.

AKAI PT5492S - Makes a ticking noise,black


This usually is indicative of the EXTREMELY HIGH VOLTAGE anode connection somewhere between the flyback transformer and one or more of the crt picture tubes or the splitter. Being that this circuit has a running voltage potential of over 30,000 volts if you are not familiar with these YOU CAN BE KILLED messing with it!!! What happens is that there is a breakdown of insulation over time usually from dirt or other environmental contamination. Usually a good cleaning and replacing the HV anode wire that has failed. (hint) it will be the one that the "ticking noise" is coming from. The ticking noise is actually the high voltage arcing to the chassis/ground.

Be careful!!!!

The set has developed a short either in the power supply or the horizontal/high voltage circuit. The power supply makes a weird noise when it gets overloaded. This can get complicated so have a repair shop check it out for you. Thanks

Sony Wega 32"TV - noise on startup


The slight flash on the screen is usually because the CRT (picture tube) is holding a better than average charge and this is what we call "pre-glow" The noise that you hear, is that everytime you turn it on or just after it has been off for a while? If only after the set has been sitting off for a while then your noise is the internal degauser for the CRT and that noise is 100% normal. The degausers in Sony TV's are so strong they usually make the plastic cabinet vibrate a bit.
