The lens has probably got something in the retraction mechanism that is stopping it retracting. This can be something as simple as sand or grit or as a result of a drop or knock. In most cases the camera will need to be stripped apart to remove the lens assy before it can be repaired. This is best left to a professional camera repair shop.

How can I open the case of my Samsung SL30 camera?


I wouldn't try to open the camera lens to that extent to clean it out, you will have to disassemble dozens of tiny parts, springs, leaf shutters, tiny screws, gears, motor.....etc. It is rare that you get dirt inside the lens, maybe it is something else outside the lens?

try taking canned air to the lens joints.it could be just dirt or something blocking the sensor or the lens itself from retracting.

My samsung sl30's lens is stuck what do i do?


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.

My Camera have 3 months of use and now the lens don't save when i turn off. Works well, but i have to force the lens inside when i stop use it.


Don't force it, you'll break it.

You can try some of the fixes listed in this link as it's likely to just be a bit of dirt stuck in the mechanism, but given that the camera is only three months old it's fully covered by the manufacturer's warranty as long as there's no evidence that you have been clumsy or have tried repairing it yourself.

I hope that you get your camera working again and that you found my reply to be of use. If so, please rate my answer.

Canon SD100 Lens Error (camera)


First try calling 1-800-OK-CANON to see if warranty repair applies. If not...

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:

Nikon CoolPix L18 getting lens error


Try jiggling the lens. Use compressed air to blow out any grit around the lens barrel. If that doesn't do it, you'll need to get the camera serviced.
