Lens focusing problem

I recently dropped my camera while it had my wide angle lens in it. everything seemed fine & the lens & camera both worked. today it won't work with the wide angle lens in it & makes a clicking sound when i try to take a photo. i tried another lens & it's fine. does anyone have any idea what it might be that i could fix without taking it to a camera store? thank you.

Re: lens focusing problem

I doubt that there is anything you can do yourself. Are you willing to disassemble the lens? I wouldn't be willing to do so.

Take it to a camera repairer and get a quote to see if it is economical to repair or cheaper/easier to replace.

Good luck.

Nikon DX AF-SNIKKOR 18-55MM 1:3.5-5.6G11 ED auto focus don't work

If you're looking at the camera without a lens on it, there should be a little flat protrusion in the lower left. Make sure that it is protruding and not obstructed.

Have a canon digital elph sd750. Pictures are now blurry.

You could have cracked the lens, damage the focus or a number of other things but the lens and focus are most likely. check your lens for scratches if there is none and no cracks take it to your nearest camera store or buy new good luck!

I have a Nikon D40, which I recently dropped. :( Camera seemed okay, but then I noticed later that the 18-55 lens was being less than cooperative. It now is stuck on 55 adn will not zoom out. It still...

It sound like the lens zoom has broken.
If other lens is ok and this lens still focuses automatically the conection is working.

Sorry to bring the bad news but it may cost less to get a new lens than to get it fixed.

Someone else might have an idea how to fix the zoom, good luck.

HELP Sigma 24-60MM wide Angle

The helicoid or the barrel thread in the lens may be jammed. The lens will have to be serviced. You should take it back for warranty service.

As for myself, I aways buy origional manufacture lenses and accessorites for my cameras.

Lens focusing problem

Dropping a camera is no laughing matter.  I assume you have severely damaged the wide angle lens, and the only solution I have it to purchase another one.   Certainly if the front element fell out that is serious and there are probably other things wrong with the lens, and continued use of it could damage the camera body.   Just be more careful and chock it up to experience and buy a new lens. Sorry to hear about your accident.   Good luck.

Focus problem

The factory presets would not have been affected by your grandson doing as you describe. Depending on what other lenses he might be trying to use, many have a separate switch located on the barrel of the lens to turn auto focus on or off.

Wide Angle Lenses

wide angle lens aka fish-eye lens, means only the centre of your photo is clearly focused - especially in long distance scenery shots.

S70 Macro Focus Problem?

The macro is good at 4cm at wide angle, 8inches at full telephoto(different distances for any focal length in between). I read that someplace in the manual, I believe.
