Lens on my camera not working I want to fix the camera myself


If the lens is stuck out then you will find it is usually one of a few reasons.

1. Check the
batteries. (obvious I know).
2. The
camera has been dropped or knocked.
3. The camera has grit or dirt in the lens mechanism.

Providing the batteries are ok then 2 and 3 usually mean a professional repair. The lenses tend not to be something that the average
home user can remove and take apart. The cost of repair also might be more than the camera value so you will need to find a good repair shop near you and get a quote.

Lens error


Not really anything that can be done without taking it apart and fixing. Problem is then getting it back together!

I always suggest to friends that they buy a camera without the extending lens for just this reason.

You can try sending to Nikon or taking it to a repair shop. Most likely will be $100 or so to get it fixed. Or, they will tell you it's not worth fixing.

I dropped my camera while it was on and the lens was extended. And I dropped it right on the lens. And now when I turn the camra off, the lens does not go back inside the camera. Everything else is fine,...


if the cams making grinding or crunching noise the lens housing gears are broke. repair usually not very economical. about 80% the cost of cam when you bought it.

Lens stuck after dropping camera


Probably it can be fixed, but if the lens gears are too damaged the repair could be much expensive and you would prefer to buy a new one.
Take your camera to a qualified technician to check the price of a repair.

Kodak camera dropped lens cockeyed stuck 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:

Lens stuck. Wont extent all the way out of yhe case.


got dropped? ..basically this camera is dust now.... to fix barrel you can attempt to wedge pry or reshape ...but if dropped and tweaked lens barrel it is worth less than cost of repair...
if it is power issue only...try to reset ..go to cameras website to see if a resettign process is listed ..new firmware etc.. and hope that does it for you
