Lens wont go back in

The mechanical rectactors are probably worn out. Try turning it on and off again. If that doesn't work, try pushing gently the lens with your palm while shutting it off, maybe the rectractors need a bit of help or are just stuck and may fix themselves after you help them rectact the lens once.

Focus error on camera wont take pictures wont put

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 ... Unfortunately, many cameras that fall prey to this can only be corrected by professional repair. But, here are some things that you can do that may correct it. They only seem to work for less than 40% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try.

Hi my son dropped my digital camera while the lens was extended and now it wont retract and it says zoom error also the shutter wont open fully or close, the lens is at a slight angle and wont budge do i...


It helps to know the make and model of the camera, some cameras the lens is too fragile and we have never been able to repair them. Other models we have had a great deal of success repairing them. (Google: darntoothysam)

One trick you can try... at your own RISK... is to put the camera lens on the edge of a table and gently but firmly push it back towards the middle and try to get it to CLICK back into place. There are three small metal pins inside the lens barrel and these pins ride in grooves in the inside of the lens, this makes the lens move in and out... If your lens is at an angle, at least one pin has jumped out of its groove.

Put the SIDE of the lens (NOT the flat front of the lens, the rounded side) on the edge of the table with the camera body not touching anything. Push the lens back towards being straight again and it will either click back into place or it wont. Even if it does it may not work, or you may damage the lens further.

If you don't want to try this or if you find you need the lens replaced, we can help, we are an affordable digital camera repair business, feel free to check us out and let us know if we can help.

Good luck from Darntoothysam com
