Re: abt digital camera canon power shot A250

When I turn my camera on my starting screen will appear and it will stay on for only 30 seconds and then turn itself back off. The shutter does not move. I think it is jammed. I dropped my purse and the camera was inside of it. I think it may have been the cause of my problems. Im not sure what the correct term is but the part of the camera that sticks out in the front to help focus and get close does not move either. It is slightly out like is is jammed as well... please help I love this camera!

Good day! my camera unit is SONY DSC-W310 . my problem is about the lens of my camera which fell down on the floor and the lens is open and now it cannot function and it indicates on the LCD this quote...

A lens error can be caused by physical damage to the mechanism that controls the lens, or debris that is interfering with the operation of the lens.

This article may be able to help you with a "do it yourself" solution.

In the event that your problem is due to physical damage and not just dirt or debris, you will need to take it to a local camera repair shop for troubleshooting-- though with most consumer digital cameras, labor and parts cost of a repair can easily exceed the value of the camera.

Hi there do not worry . It can be fixed. After fall down on the floor the lens guide pin is damaged or the power supply connection disconnect from the inside. That's why its not recognized the power supply. In both case the solution is visit service center they will fix it for you. Maximum charged is 40 - 70 USD. Thanks & waiting for your feedback.

My Canon Power Shot A1100 IS camera fell and now

There is no DIY fix for this problem, and attempting a fix is likely to worsen the problem and cause the camera to shut down. Sorry, but your situation calls for professional repair.

Nikon d40 fully damaged?

My standard response: Contact Nikon USA (if you're in the US) and ship them the camera and lens.This will cost, which they will estimate up-front, but it is the absolutely best solution to the problem. Anything else is a hack job!

Lens won't close

Hey daisy16,
If this problem only started happening after you dropped your camera there is likely physical damage to the lens, and you need to have it looked at by an authorized service technician. When this camera has a hardware problem it will tell the user to turn it off and back on, but since the physical problem is not actually resolved by doing this you gets the message again.

Go Ahead. Use Us.
