Question about Ricoh Caplio R5 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Camera jam Ricoh Caplio R5 - tried to switch it on to take a picture, and lens came out part way but the camera then switched off. Flat battery perhaps, so charged battery overnight and tried again with similar results. Lens still part way out, maybe some whirring noises, screen flashes but then camera switches off. Any ideas? Dead battery / broken charger? - or problem with camera? And how to check (I only have the one battery)

    I have the same symptoms. It seems like the camera is trying to focus, but can't.

All the R series Ricohs have a pretty complicated lens system employing 2 swing-out lenses which can get stuck pretty easily, or worse, broken. If you are very good at taking things to bits you might have a go at fixing it (I've done several that were not TOO bad) since picking up one on Ebay with a good lens unit is almost impossible.

When i turn the camera on the lens wont come all the way out and the screen does not come on


Possible error in the processor on the main board within the camera. remove the battery, memory card and tap to see if there is any dirt or sand within the camera. Now reset the battery and switch on as you tap the camera with the lens hood on your palm. if this wont reset the camera needs to be opened up to check within for failure of circuit or a possible mechanical jamming of the lens drive.
