Why does the focusing ring on the efs 55-250mm not retract all the way when you turn the camera off


I doesn't return to it's closed position when the camera is turned off. You have to do it manually . Turn the zoom ring to the 55 position then turn the front focus ring fully to the left.

It turns on but beeps 3 times then shuts off


Hello and Welcome to FixYa!
This indicates that the Camera lens is retracted, to D.I.Y be careful not to be aggressive with the Gadget If the lens is retracted, hold up the camera to your eye and look at the lens. If you see one end sticking out a little bit, push that side in and press the power button. It should work. If the lens isn't retracted, push the lens around until it is in its regular position. When you press the power button, it will retract and come out again and should work fine.
If the procedure above does not resolve the problem, your camera requires service, fill out our online service request form so that we can further diagnose and correct the problem.
I hope this will help you out, If you are still having issues/questions, do ask.

If you think I was of help, your token of appreciation in the form of rating will be esteemed.
Concerned, Nooh

Canon Powershot A510 - lens covers stuck


A stuck lens cover is a fairly common problem, but it is normally easy to fix. A single grain of sand jamming the cover mechanism is normally the culprit, and you want to try to dislodge it. There are many non-invasive techniques that people have come up with to accomplish this. Some may be seen on this blog article. You can also open the lens barrel up to fix the covers, but only as a very last resort. The article also gives examples for this type of procedure.

Lens error, restart camera


Lens error is usually caused by mechanical faults concerning lens assembly. The lens cannot extend or retract fully, the error is detected and lens error is returned.
Sometimes this can be fixed playing with the lens during extraction or retraction to help the lens asset getting back to normal.
More often the camera lens must be disassembled and re-assembled by a technician to fix the problem.

Lens will not retract


With Battery out try to pull the lens towards outside
Do that gently do Don't rip it off !!!
Probably you will hear a click sound and If you do,
than put the battery back turn on and you should be fine
Every case is different so of the lens is jammed this will help
If the lens assembly is damaged than the only way is to sell the rest of the camera for parts.

Lens for Nikon D60


I will try to help you, but please understand that my experience is with Nikon film cameras. Assuming that the D60 works in a manner similar to a Nikon 35 mm body and that Sigma macro lens work like Nikon macro lens, you should be able to determine the usable subject to lens distance by experimentation. First, make sure the lens is in the macro mode. To do this you must set the auto-focus mode control to the manual focus mode (see your manual). On Nikon lenses, you must first set the focus ring to infinity, then move slider switch, which has two positions marked; "normal" and "macro., to the macro position. You should now be able to rotate the focus ring to the macro range. Use the zoom ring to zoom in and out and focus with the focus ring. The the range over which the lens to subject to lens distance will yield an in focus image will be rather limited and in the range of an inch or so to 6 or 8 inches.

Dropped the lens, nothing broke but focus ring came undone


This will need technical service eventually. Try temporary solution with Sellotape or similar
