The lens on on my easyshare c195 doesnt retract. there appears to be a obstrution of the lens

There are two things we can try, get a can of compressed air use the attach straw and give two or three good blasts in the crevice "between camera body and lens housing" press power at the same time to try and get the lens to move, failing that! Take the palm of your hand and sharply hit around the lens housing pressing the power in order to get it to retract, this works better with small camera's and gets results most of the time. this second option does involve risk and could make things worse, but the reward of getting it going is even better. The main cause of lens sticking is dirt that builds up over a period of time.

The shutters on my Fujifilm E900 wont open or close properly.

Do you mean the lens cover on the end of the lens Is not opening properly, or the shutter inside the lens?

My brand new kodak m340 won't stay on. the lens pops open and then closes right back up. the camera has been charged.

I had the same problem after a day at the beach. What I did was get a can of compressed air (from the computer section) and blow air around the lens as I repeatedly turned it on. It took about five cycles, but I eventually cleared whatever was preventing the lens from fully opening.

Good luck.

My lens to my camera wont close when it is turned off,it doesnt even move when it is on. The screen just tells me to turn it off and on again, but that hasn't worked. Please help!!

If the lens on the camera is stuck out, look to see if it's a little crooked. If it is, try to gently straighten it. If it still won't retract, try to gently push it in as you turn the power on.

Lens/zoom wont come out

The lens mechanism inside of the lens unit is damaged. The fix is to change the lens. You can send the camera to authorized service rep for an estimate. I believe that the cost of service many be close to or even more expensive than replacing the camera.

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.

Sony-DSC W1 lens not closing

Try this test. While turning camera off apply light pressure to the lens tube to see if there is a point where the gear engages to close the lens fully. This fault indicates broken gear teeth on the outside of the largest diameter barrel. Scrap the lens or use it for parts. A broken gear in the motor gear box will not respond to this test whatsoever. A lens that doesn't fully close, sticks up about a quarter inch and freezes on the Canon logo on power up inidicates the focus mechanism has not fully closed--perhaps a software glitch. The repair involves desoldering plastic ribbon connections and removal of the back panel to gain access to the focusing screw type motor armature to reset the small internal lens so it is flush with the back cover. This lens prevents the lens from completely closing. Reassemble and start taking pictures again.
