Hey, bad news for you, the mechanism seems to be jammed, fixing this yourself can be really difficult, I have tryed and failed.

I would recommend takeing the camera to a local electronics or pc repairshop for analysis.

Warranty doesnt cover this problem.

When the camera is turned on and the 16-105 DT 3.5-5.6 zoom is attached there is a repeated clicking sound that continues until the camera is turned off. A sony camera salesman indicated it was the lens. ...


I had the same problem with my SAL-16105. It turned out that inside the lens the FOCUS DIFFERENTIAL RING (Artnr.: 321020202) was broken. The camera tries to move the focus from one end to the other when it is turned on (probably to check the functionality), but as the ring is broken, focus will never reach its end-point. Thus the camera continues to try to turn the mechanics futher until either the gear on the lens ring or one of the gears inside the lens will jump, making the clicking sounds. Another reason might be that one of the brushes ("focus brush") inside the lens that are used to signal the position of the focus to the camera electronics is damaged. (This might even lead to the mechanical destruction of the focus differential ring I think). I was able to repair my ring, but as I had to glue it, after a few months it failed again. I'm waiting for a replacement ring now.

My lens fell down and I think is not broken but the front part is separated, can I repair it myself or should I sent it to customer service?


Get a quote first for the repair as this lens is the least expensive Canon lens and it could be that the combined cost of postage and repair will exceed to cost of a brand new replacement.

Lens error, restart camera.How can I restart the camera IXUS 60?


Hi,

Since the camera is locked after lens error, you will restart camera removing batteries.

If this does not help, then you are in one of the following conditions:

Lens error and lens does not retract.
Try helping lens gently back in while you turn off the camera holding the button at same time.

Lens error and lens do not extend.
Restart the camera , and try gently tapping the camera back with the palm of your hand whilst restarting camera at same time.

If that does not help, then one part on the camera lens assembly is broken or out of place, or dirt inside lens mechanism caused the fault.

The lens must be disassembled by a technician to fix the problem.

If the problem is not fixed swapping batteries and resetting, then the camera must be taken apart and tested by a technician.

Kodak camera dropped lens cockeyed stuck open


Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ...

Here's some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seem to work for less than 50% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try:

Turn on the camera, cover lens is closed even though i already pull it down


if you open up your casing you will find that almost dead center on the front PCB, just to the right of the battery at the top of the empty battery area there is a box. possibly with some plastic fragment that is broken off. if you touch inside this box w/ something conductive it will think the lens is open. You can either fix this area or permanently solder it so it thinks it is always open. You can still turn it off using the button on the side of the camera
