Dear titaniarox

The lens should either get in on replacing with new set of batteries or the best thing is to take it to a nearest electronics repair shop. We cannot predict exactly the extent of damage, it may be a simple one nor a complicated one.

Thankyou

The following web blog talks about lens error problems, and what you can try to get the camera working again:
http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/fixing-lens-error-on-digital-camera.html
Sometimes, when a lens gets bumped or dropped and hit, the gears inside the assemby can jam, strip, or break. The blog discusses what you can try to get the camera working again, but if nothing works, the camera will have to be serviced. You can take it in to a local camera repair shop, or contact Kodac support:
http://support.en.kodak.com/
Get an estimate before having it repaired, since the cost of repair can often justify buying a new one.
Good luck, and hope this helps.

The lens mechanism could be jammed and cause a failure of the lens control system. You can remove battery and card replace battery and while switching on tap the lens hood on your hands so as to disengage any dirt or mechanism being struck.
Use some air to blow between the lens to dislodge any sand particles struck inside. If none of these works then you can think of taking consensus with the service centre., being an expensive camera
get estimate before you decide. It will be good to have it checked at the Casio service as you do not have to run around for spares.

Says lens error restart camera yet my lens will not close


Hi, your lens has probably been damaged , usuallly by dropping or bumping , or sand or some other particle may be jamming it. Try using a piece of photo film ( exposed negative) to search for anything that may be stuck in the lens where it telescopes out. Another "fix" is to firmly bang the corner of the camera case into the palm of your hand quickly after pushing the power button.This may loosen the jam

I dropped my camera while it was on and the lens was extended. And I dropped it right on the lens. And now when I turn the camra off, the lens does not go back inside the camera. Everything else is fine,...


if the cams making grinding or crunching noise the lens housing gears are broke. repair usually not very economical. about 80% the cost of cam when you bought it.

Have read of same problem from numerous users on the internet. One person said this may be caused by a twisted/jammed lens. Apparently the "telescoping" lens mechanism can sometimes jam due to a drop and/or from dirt that gets in the telescoping hardware. The solution that someone gave that I read about involved telling the user to try to gently twist and/or wiggle the extended lens parts counterclockwise to try to "unjam" them. Of course that would also require having fully charged batteries, etc, before you try that, since from my experience, low battery charge results sometimes in the lens not retracting (or extending) properly also. It's worth a try anyway, since apparently your camera isn't functioning properly anyway now with its lens extended. I have a problem w/my On/Off switch not working properly, and in checking w/the Canon USA website, they wanted a minimum of $87 to "start" to attempt to fix it (whatever the problem is), and required that I pay them that much "up-front", and that I agree to whatever it then would cost in toral. I backed out and went and bought some new cameras instead, since I felt that was way too much to invest in my A70, that's already 5 years old now. Good luck w/your extended lens problem.

Lens problem


Dear Customer,
When you say the lens barrel is bent, do you mean that the camera won't turn on ?, or the lens barrel is just bent and it looks outlandish. However if it's not turning on follow these steps:

1) Try to gently re-position the barrel, and make it more stortionate.

2) try to recharge ( or get new batteries ), and see if the lens will withdraw.

Unfornately, when you drop a camera, many warranties are voided, and you have to pay to have it fixed, but i doubt it would be that much money to fix.


Please rate this solution.. Thank You..

I would take the lens off and then put it back on, being careful to align the registration marks on the lens barrel and the camera.  It should click into place quite firmly.  If this does not fix the problem, take it back for repair.

Canon SD600 lens jam


I followed the directions contained in http://www.avh.dds.nl/Fix-Canon-SD600-Lens-Error/ and by disassembling the camera and turning the rotor just a little bit (page 4 of the instructions), it freed up the lens and it is now working perfectly! The camera had been put down on the lens as the lens was retracting and I assume that jammed the retract mechanism. While the camera was open, I blew out whatever dust/dirt was there (didn't see much). The fix took me probably 20-30 minutes, and I am very pleased with myself!

Casio Exilim ex-z700 - lens wont open


Chances are you are not going to succeed. Water dissolves Coke but Kills cameras. Dropping them does the lens drive mechanism no good at all. Well now you are in a rock and a hard place. 1st thing to do is to go and buy the next camera. Then remove batteries and memory card from the existing camera and wet a tissue and wrap it around the lens barrel and let it stand face down for a couple of hours. Then find a poly bog. and in it put some salt or uncooked rice wrapped in a cloth[hanky?] Put hanky and camera in the bag close tight shut for a day. The idea is to draw out the moisture But I reckon you will need that new camera. As for a repair -forget it - these things don't get repaired
