I recently dropped my Samsung es55 digital camera and now the lense will not retract and no image is displayed on the screen. I am also unable to take pictures. However when I go to view pictures on the camera the screen works perfectly. How can this be fixed?

SOURCE: broken camera

It is likely that your lens assembly was knocked out of alignment when you dropped the camera. When things do not line up inside the lens the whole unit cannot move in and out. This malfunction requires disassembly to fix, so you will have to get it to a professional for repair. There are providers online who can repair your camera, and also check with your manufacturer to see if they can service the camera at a reasonable rate. David Millier Advance Camera Repair

The following blog outlines some repair options for a lens error. They won't work for all cases, but they're worth a try if the camera's no longer under warranty:

SOURCE: zoom lense wont retract

The problem you are describing is a problem with something in the lens assembly of the camera. It seems to have failed and needs to be replaced. Following are the instructions to send your camera to Olympus for service.

http://olympusamerica.com/cpg_section/cpg_servicerepair.asp

Olympus will charge a flat rate repair fee for this product if beyond the one year factory warranty or the warranty is voided. The cost is $73.85 plus your local sales tax. This covers parts and labor, factory cleaning and diagnostic check, 6 month warranty and the cost of shipping the product back to you is all included in that price.

Shutter lense is stuck out, want retract. Display went black. want retract and display is black.


Hi, It sounds like the lens is stuck, possibly from dropping? Either way if lighting tapping it doesn't work then unfortunately there's no way it can be fixed.

Someone sat on my es-55 samsung camera, when i put it on an ink blot picture appears on the screen, this might be the lcd screen , the lens is okay as it still slides out.How do i fix it?


Hi

Does the 'ink blot' appear on any pictures you are taking or just on the Samsung ES55 LCD screen?

If it just appears on the LCD screen it's probably been damaged when it was sat on, and the only option would be to replace the LCD screen by contacting a Samsung service agent in your region.

If the 'ink-blot' image is appearing on the pictures you are taking then check the lens is clean - be careful not to extert to much pressure on the lens when it is retracted.

if the lens seems clean, as a last suggestion change memory card, or totally reformat the card that is in the camera - if the card has become corrupt the images may not be displaying correctly.

I hope one of these few suggestions sorts your problem.

Regards

David

Samsung S760 digital camera.Lense does not not retract and there is no display on screen.Camera does not respond when any function button is pushed..Installed new batteries.Green indicator flashes when...


You may have gotten a light debris in the lens. Just the littlest amount will cause the lens to jam. Try a can of compressed air and blowing it out.

I have a sony DSC-W170. It was dropped and now


I had exactly the same problem with my Sony Cyber_Shot. Here is what I did and the problem was fixed. I cleaned around the lense. While I turned the camera off, I pressed down the lense very softly (some up and down motion). After a couple of times, the lense retracted almost completely. Then I pressed a little harder until the lense retracted 100% as normal times. I turned it on everything was back to normal. If the lense does not have mechanical problem, you should be able to do what I did.
If there is no mechanical problem, most likly some dirt got on the sides of the lense while it was open. Try keep it very clean always.

Good luck;

S630 won't turn on


Openings the lense is the last thing you want to try. If you dropped your camera, you may have to. If you did not drop your camera, some dirt somhow got on the sides of the lense and they prevent your lense from closing or opening 100%

Try this first
turn it on and the same time pull the lense out. Your lense may not be open all the way out. OR
Clean the side (outside) of the lense. While turning your camera OFF, push on the lense in NOT too hard. Try that a few times, If the lense retracted 100% or near 100%, just push the lense in a little harder untill it is 100% retrected. Turn it on, It may work now.

Good luck!!!!!!!!!!

Good Luck!!!!!!!

If the camera was on when it was dropped you probably jamed the lense coil. The lense coil is what helps the camera smoothly pull in the lense and back out. Now, just to specify, what exactly are you having a problem with? Will the actual lense not go back into the camera when you turn it off; or can you not get your camera off zoom?
Let me know~
