Won't recognize disk

DVD cameras should keep in clean atmosphere, the dust and dirt are the enemy of this kind of cameras. first of all the disk used must be clean, if not the laser cannot write on the disk and previously recorded programs will not read, in this condition the cameras screen will show "no disk". if there dust and dirt on the lens, that also will get the same result, lens cleaner disk is widely available so it is safe to clean with it, if you don't have it, you can clean the lens with a soft tissue paper, then use a hand blower to fly away the dust from the must be very careful to do this, don't give excess pressure on the lens, and the disk also clean with a little damp tissue paper or optical cleaner cloth, after all if the problem persists there may be laser lens unit is weak or some problems in the related circuitry, if so you have to open the camera totally, then laser intensity of lens must be tested with an oscilloscope. if you recognize that the lens pickup is faulty, then you carefully replace with a same model. in some rare cases the circuits also play a roll in this way, if so you may refer the respective service manual.

How do I clean the lenses

Remove as much dust and dirt as possible from the lens with a blower or soft-bristled brush. Apply a few drops of lens cleaning solution to a lens tissue or cleaning cloth. Using a circular motion, gently remove oil, fingerprints, and grime from the lens surface, working from the center outward.

Cleaning and lubrication

Cleaning a lens should only be done with a non-scratching cloth and tissues designed for optics; moistened with plain water or cleaning solution designed for optics. Use of paper towels, glass cleaners, ammonia, etc. can scratch and strip special optical coatings from lenses. Apply water or solution to cloth or tissue - not to optics.

Do not lubricate lenses. Lubes attract dirt and dust and can seep into the lens and gum up aperture blades and eventually cause them to stick. Nearly all lenses do NOT require lubrication. Lenses should be cleaned professionally when not working correctly.

Good luck!

The eyepiece lenses have something on the inside. Can they be removed for cleaning?

  1. Carefully clean your binoculars by firstly removing any dirt or dust from the main body and straps using a soft microfibre cloth. Avoid the lenses at this point using any form of cloth on the lenses before removing all dirt and dust particles first could destroy them.
  1. Gently remove all traces of grit, dirt or dust particles from the lenses using a soft lens brush or canned air specifically designed for the purpose.
  1. Waterproof binoculars can be rinsed gently under a tap but be sure to use on lightly running water, avoid high pressure water as it could damage your binoculars.
  1. Gently remove any remaining marks using lens cleaning tools such as a lens pen or lens cleaning fluid and lens tissue. Do not be tempted to use kitchen towel or anything else lying around that is slightly rough and may scratch the surface of the lens, only use a lens pen, lens tissue or a lens cloth. Gently wipe the lens using a circular motion working from the centre of the lens to the outer edge. NEVER apply lens cleaning fluid directly onto the glass (always apply to the cloth) and always ensure that the lens cleaning fluid you are using is recommended for the type of lens coatings that have been applied to your binoculars (Do not use general household glass cleaning products or products designed to clean computer screens or glasses. Such products could destroy the lens coatings of your binoculars if used).

Whats best for cleaning lens

A very soft bristle brush is the best way to clean an optical lens. Camera shops sell these brushes for a few dollars.

A "blower" is also recommended. Some brushes are a combo with a bulb at one end to squeeze air at the same time you softly brush the lens. An alternative is compressed air that comes in a small can with a straw like nozzle you add to the spray head.

Never use a facial tissue, they are too rough.

For a stubborn mark, you can buy a small bottle of lens cleaning liquid and special tissues. Fold the tissue in fourths, add a drop of cleaner, then gently wipe the lens. (Never apply the liquid directly to the lens.) Let it air dry.

All these items are very inexpensive and available at any camera shop.

If your camera lens accepts a screw on filter, protect your lens by adding a UV filter. It's cheap insurance against damage to the lens.

Error 99 all the time , 1 yr old ...started it about 2 months after i bought it

Hum, error 99 eh? Canon's catch all error code, there is a ton of little entities that can cause error 99 from using third party lenses, batteries and even grips but, it all comes back to an electric contact fault. By using a good clean new pencil one with the red rubber eraser most of the error 99 problems can be quickly for lack of words erased. The most obvious problem area if you camera is not fitted with a battery grip is the lens contacts between it and the body of the camera.
Remove the lens, put the body cap on the camera when you are doing this part and while holding the lens as vertical as possible with the contacts down lightly rub the cold contacts. You can use a lens tissue and blow bulb/puffer to remove loose rubber. While you are at it clean all your lenses and put the rear lens cap on while not in use.
Okay the body, it's not as easy but doable, remove the body cap keeping the lens mount and open cavity pointing downward. Lightly rub the body contacts well but also gently, clean any rubber away from the contacts using a lens tissue. Don't use the bulb/puffer as it will blow eraser dust into the camera and possibly cause flecks of dirt to adhere to the sensor.
Once clean reinstall your lens and go do some photography.
Other things that cause this annoying error 99 are grip contacts, battery and recently I got into an error problem and my fix was updating to new camera firmware. That problem took me while on an assignment and would have been embarrassing except my back up was a "Rebel". Winding down the shoot the Rebel started with this error 99. Once back to the studio I did the updates and cleaned every lens I had. Cheers Happy New Year have fun make lots of pictures.

My s860 samsung will not focus the pictures are blurry how do I get it to refocus

Use the following steps one at a time and test the camera after each step. Start with a fully charged battery.

1. Make sure you do not have the focus set to "Macro", usually the graphic for Macro is a tulip symbol. Set it on Auto Focus. If that is not the problem, very carefully clean the lens.

2.Power up the camera and when the lens extends, apply a few drops of commercial lens cleaning fluid to a lens cleaning cloth or lens cleaning tissue (not a facial tissue) and gently rub the lens in a circular direction. Then with a dry lens cloth or tissue carefully dry the lens.

3. Make sure you camera's ISO setting is on Auto ISO.

4. Rest your camera to factory default by going to the Settings menu, selecting "Reset", then select "Yes" in the sub-menu.

If none of these steps work, there is damage or a defect in your camera and you must contact Samsung for repair advice.

Nikkor Lens Fix

The fading (flare) you see could simply be a finger smudge or other stuff. One little scratch won't do it, you'd have to take sandpaper to the lens to see obvious flare.

It's actually harder to scratch a modern lens than most people think. When it happens, it's usually during cleaning when a tiny piece of grit is on the surface and gets rubbed in by the cleaning cloth/lens tissue.

So the first step in cleaning a lens surface is to be sure you remove all dust and dirt without rubbing. The lens cleaning kit you can find in any camera store is a start -- it contains a blower brush. With the lens surface to be cleaned facing down (so dust falls away), brush gently with the tips of the bristles to dislodge stuff. Then use the blower to blow it away. Repeat as needed.

If you still see dust and dirt which seems to be stuck on the surface, take a piece of the lens tissue from the kit and put several drops of the cleaning solution on it, enough to get it pretty damp. (Always apply cleaning solution to the tissue or cloth, never drop directly on the lens surface.) Cover the lens surface with the damp tissue, pressing it into the corners, but do not slide the tissue across the surface. Just lift it away. Repeat with another section of tissue.

Then take a full sheet, wad it lightly, and wet it. You are going to rub lightly, using a roll-up motion as you move the tissue so that dust/dirt is lifted away from the surface and fresh tissue is always coming in contact with the surface. Repeat as needed until there isn't any visible stuff.

Final cleaning can be done with a fresh piece of tissue and a bit of mist from your breath. Mist the surface, and lightly polish with the tissue to remove any remaining cleaner residue.
