Re: camera

My daughter just had this problem with her camera. The camera was off with the lens barrel extended. When I looked at it closely, I noticed that the inner part of the lens barrel was at a slight angle to the camera. I pushed firmly on the low side of the inner part of the barrel, and it popped the rest of the way out. Camera works fine now. Good luck!

I have a canon camera IXUS 105 and the lense is stuck out and when i turn the camera on it says 'lens error, will shut down automaticly, restart camera' i have restarted it many times but the lenses wont...

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.

I dropped my camera when the lense was out, and it has gone on a wonk and it wont go back in how can i fix this please help?

The gear that moves the lens is stuck or jammed. Do not force! You'll need to disassemble the camera in order to reset the gears. A gear may have been broken as well. If you force the lens, you can multiply the problem further.

The lense on my panasonic DMC FS3 camera is stuck outwards and will not come back in.

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 won't retract, stuck in outward position

battery power/and or lens motor/ if lucky the lense connection, (Try removing the lenses and puting them back) may be a bad electrical connection.

My camera lense is stuck and my camera wont turn on

hi...The transmission system that moves the lens in and out has a problem with it's gears. There is most likely a gear or an actuator that has fallen out of alignment and is getting stuck at a certain point as the lens comes in/out.There is some disturbacnce of the lens arrangement that is preventing the lens from coming in/out.Any of these symptoms above could trigger the camera to shut itself off to protect itself from further damage.

thank u
rate me!!!

Lens are stuck out. screen says "lens error"

There could be two things causing this problem.

1- some dirt somehow got on the outside of side of the lense. So the lense could not fully retract or open out. As a result you can not take any picture. If the lense comes out even a little bit, try to pull it out NOT too hard a few times. If it does not retract, turn the camera off and push the lense in (up and down) NOT too hard for a few times. If the camera opened up 100% or retracted 100%, your camera should be back to normal. Make sure to clean the outside of the lense when fully open and keep it clean always. If this did not help, read 2.

2- If you dropped the camera, some mechanical part of the lense is broken or dislocated or the cable may have come loose. In this case you need to take out the lense from the camera and inspect it for broken pieces or loose cable. clean the outside of the lense and push the lense in and out a few times. Put the lense back on the camera and your camera would be back to normal.

Good luck!!!!!!

Zoom error

Hey MBB722,
What is most likely going on is there is something stuck in the lens obstructing its movement (i.e. sand). I don't know what you have tried and what you have not tried you can try placing the camera on a flat surface with the lens pointing upwards, and then press and hold the shutter button and while doing this turn the camera on. If this doesn't work you can try removing the batteries and waiting a minute or two and then reinserting. If these suggestions don't work you should have it looked at by an authorized service technician such as bringing the camera to a Geek Squad® precinct at a Best Buy™ store and they can send it out for service. I hope this helps!

Lense wont come out

It sounds like the drive gear(s) are broken. Kodak generally doesn't sell parts for their digital products so you are stuck taking it directly to Kodak for service.
