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 Nikon 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.

I have a Rancher 455 chainsaw - when changing the chain the brake did not disengage and now I can not get the clutch cover back on - any suggestions?

I have done the same exact thing myself. It's not going to be easy. I had to compress the spring by hand. there should be a little cover screwed down covering the spring, carefully remove it. this spring is pretty strong, so if you let it out of the channel its in, it probably going to eject across the room. I don't think theres a specific method, just use ingenuity and force the spring to open up the ring that grabs the oustide of the clutch, and move the mechanism inside to lock it there, then re-cover the spring, line up the 3 notches, and it'll go right back on. Don't be surprised if it takes a little while.

Lens cover will not close all the way.

If the camera was dropped or banged the lens could be damaged. Does it go in and out and can you take pictures? If not, the lens needs to be replaced.

If the built in lens covers will not close properly but the camera still takes pictures, it probably just needs to be cleaned or taken apart and rebuilt if one small spring has popped off from where it's supposed to be. Some cameras this is easy to do, don't know your camera model so I can't tell you if it's possible to do with yours.

Hope this helps!

I have a 2005 harley xl 1200 custom..i am leaking oil or i think it is transmission fluid..from the round side cover..the clutch cable enters the transmission just a little bit towards the inside of the...

That's exactly what that is. We call it a "derby cover". It's held on by four screws. Take this cover off. There is a locknut and small spring that is behind the cover. This holds the clutch adjuster. Just put it back in the hole. The plate is sealed by a "quad ring". This is an O-ring made of square material. Just replace the quad ring and it should solve your leak. You can use some thick grease to hold the quad ring in place while you replace the cover. Don't forget to put the locknut and spring back in first.

Good Luck

Canon Powershot A510 - lens covers stuck

A stuck lens cover is a fairly common problem, but it is normally easy to fix. A single grain of sand jamming the cover mechanism is normally the culprit, and you want to try to dislodge it. There are many non-invasive techniques that people have come up with to accomplish this. Some may be seen on this blog article. You can also open the lens barrel up to fix the covers, but only as a very last resort. The article also gives examples for this type of procedure.

The lens cover is not really needed, but you can replace it yourself if you can find that other part. If you can't find it, just remove the lens cover entirely and just be careful with your lens. Here's an example:

Lens cap stuck

I was messing around with this today, ended up where it seemed in was working.

Power up, let lens out, then take out batteries. Pry off silver band patiently using fingernails. Then pry off overlying black plastic piece. There are four units underneath, pay attention to how these are put on, mine popped off, but it wasn't too hard to figure out how to put back together. There are pins and holes and kind of fits like a jigsaw. Once off clean with alcohol where you can.

Put batteries back in and open and close a few times. This will help understand movement where pins of lens cover pieces go. When putting these back on make sure camera is in off position.

The lens cover pieces need to be put on so that the pin portion has some resistance. Move one so that it drops in then push up to get other in place. Let them come together and hold these in place.

The two smaller pieces will close the cover. Put the hole of the closer piece over the pin. Then move slightly so you can retract spring with a small instrument and subsequently engages pin on closer. Place top black piece back on, then silver.

This worked for me, hope it does you also! Good luck.

Lense Protection won't open


There may be dirt or something else that has caused the cover stick, or the spring may have popped off if you dropped the camera... Hard to say without taking off the front cap and looking at it.

Turn the camera on and extend the lens, then open the battery door to shut the camera off but keep the lens extended. If you use a small screwdriver you can pop off the front cap, theres a small notch in the bottom of the ring, press it up there.

When you take the cap off the parts underneath may pop off and go flying... be careful. If you have all the parts, look for damage or dirt. Clean if dirty and put it back together.

If you lose a part or need a new kit I know one and only one spot where you can buy it... and it just happens to be me. We are a digital camera repair business and can supply you with the parts or do the repair for you.

If you search the site (Darntoothysam com) for your model number you will see the listing for the parts and one for the repair service where you send us the camera and we install them for you and ship it back.

Hopefully this will help, good luck from Darntoothysam com
