Re: digital camera

I had the same problem. After I "tore" the camera apart, I put rubbing alcohol all around the lense where it goes in and out. I then used a high quality synthetic oil that is for Grandfather clocks and other mechanical clocks to oil it again. I then ran the lense in and out (by turning it on and off) quite a few times to help work the oil down into the gears. My camera seems to be working fine now.

Lens wont go back in

The mechanical rectactors are probably worn out. Try turning it on and off again. If that doesn't work, try pushing gently the lens with your palm while shutting it off, maybe the rectractors need a bit of help or are just stuck and may fix themselves after you help them rectact the lens once.

Camera lens wont open

Saw a similar problem recently, same cause, and result was the lens was jammed.

Did manage to wiggle it free after many only stays on for a few seconds before faulting and going off...but it's a bit hard to get a hold on the edge of the lens to pop-out the low side.

Started by laying it on it's back and checking the level of the lens edges for the low spot, then used a thick sewing needle to lift up while turning the unit on (again and again) until the gear-ring popped back in during the lens-check at start-up.

When i turn on camera the screen tells me to turn it off and on again and the lens wont open

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's 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:

Today, I was using it. Turned it off for a whle, went to ues it again & it wouldnt turn on, the power light was on & three beeps came out of my camera! It wont turn off until I take the battery...

Most probably the lens problem, it got stuck or it's damaged. Try to gently pull out the lens to see is it only got stuck or take it to service

Lens wont open

Lens mechanism isn't good to work properly so camera shut down the power. Try to tap the lens/ camera while power up.
If you have a memory card in the camera, take it out before turning the camera on
