    My lens is stuck as well. It is almost in the closed position but will not go back in or out. The screen will not come on either. You turn it on and can very light clicking like sounds but nothing. Then it beeps and turns off. HELP! I see others have had this problem but no help at all.

    I have the same stinking problem!!! If anyone finds the solution, please post it. The only thing Canon told me was to send it in. Sorry, in tough times like these I can't afford to send it in or to buy a new one.

    same issue - I press the power button, blue screen with Canon logo, lens doesn't move, beeps 5 times and turns off.

    Wonder if there's some kind of mechanical problem - I've changed the battery, doesn't seem to be electrical, as the camera does power up.

When turning on my camera the stays on for only a


Hi there,

2 possible problems..

This is due to one of two problems:

First and easiest: the batteries are dead. Im sure you know how to fix that problem.

Second: your lens is jammed. The camera tries to turn on and extend the lens but since it is stuck, can't do so and gives up, beeps, and shuts off.

To fix this problem, send it into a repair shop. it shouldn't cost that much.

I hope that helped.

My samsung l830 camera lens is stuck open and when i press the power button it beeps 3 times and remains blue then does nothing


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.
If it won't turn on (the green light blinks and it beeps 3 times) push and hold the 'power' button and the 'play' button at the same time for a few seconds - it worked for my S730. Good luck!

I turn camera on. Lens comes out. beep 3 times. turns off.


Everytime I try to turn it on, the lens comes out for about a second, the camera beeps 3 times, the lens retracts and the camera shuts off. The battery is completely charged and the camera is only 4 months old. HELPP :(

It has a lens error. Everytime the camera is turned on it beeps and clicks constantly. It eventually shuts off after displaying "Lens error, restart camera." on the screen.


This is probably THE most common failure among digital cameras. There's a halfway chance of fixing it yourself, described here: http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/fixing-lens-error-on-digital-camera.html

Lens stuck open


I have to agree with one of the comments previously posted. I too had a Sony DCS-S700 and the lens was stuck open. Whenever I turned the camera on, the Sony Cybershot logo appeared and dissappeared, turning the camera off. I noticed the lens was crooked, so I moved it in the center direction and the camera worked again.

Lens problems


Try opening your camera, check the lens gear if its teeth are complete. If so, check if something stucks on it. Its much better to bring your camera to an authorized service center to re timing your lens track... ^_^
