Zoom does not work since I dropped my lens

I Dropped my Tamron 28-300mm Lens for nikon and the zoom stopped working. The repair will cost upwards of $150, I can buy a new lens instead. Does anyone have a repair video - generic Tamron videos are good enough. Repair Manuals are welcome as well.

Not worth the effort - these are very complicated internal workings and even if you managed to disassemble the glass it would be difficult to know what is damaged without a 1:1 drawing of the internals of that specific piece of glass - plus you do not have a clean room - not trying to comment on your housekeeping but a dedicated clean room with a laminar flow work bench to keep out the FM you would add just by opening up said glass in a normal room - Pay the money if you love the glass - if not they make interesting and fun paperweights...

I have a nikon d60... is the tamron 70-300 zoom lens compatible ?


Tamron makes their lenses with a variety of mounts. A lens with a Canon mount, for example, will not fit a Nikon. Assuming the lens has a Nikon mount then yes, it is compatible with the D60. However, the D60 lacks an autofocus motor, relying on the lens to have one. Some Tamron lenses have such a motor, some do not. Such lenses will not autofocus with the D60, but everything else still works, including manual focus.

When I'm taking a picture, and i try to zoom, it zooms a little then stops, says lens error and goes black. If i turn it back on, it goes on, I just can't zoom.


Most digital cameras jams are the cost of lens problems while zooming, with Nikon Coolpix S4000, simply use your fingers carefully pulling on the lens while turning the camera on. this can be done by getting your fingernail under the lens opening and gently pull.muunlyte5608.jpg

My lens will not zoom when the zoom ring is turned. What can I do?


I'd contact Tamron Tech Support. These are not cheap optics and they are assembled with precision. Opening the lens could cause contamination or further damage resulting in an even costlier repair, if out of warranty. Most Tamron lenses are covered by up to 5 years of warranty - provided you haven't opened it up - or abused it.

I hope this helped - good luck!

Unfortunately not. If the Nikon centre think it's been dropped, then you're stuck. They may well think so due to additional wear and damage caused as the initial fault progressed; this may well resemble the damage caused when a lens is dropped. You should really have sent it for repair as soon as the fault occurred.

All you can do is to write a letter of complaint to Nikon, asking them to intervene on your behalf with their authorised repair centre. It will help if you tell them how long you've been loyal to Nikon for and what other Nikon products you own; also state that if you must buy another lens that your money will instead go to one of their competitors instead and that when you replace your camera you will think hard before purchasing from Nikon again. It also helps if you tell them that you were well aware that you would be charged for any repairs caused by misuse, such as dropping your lens, and so would not have bothered to try and claim under warranty under such circumstances as it wasn't worth the risk of having to pay a big bill just to get a broken lens returned to you. Tell them that you have not dropped the lens and so you dispute their findings, and at the very least request that the lens is returned to you without charge so that you can get the lens examined by an independent repairer.

As long as your letter is polite, factual and states your argument clearly then you maximise your chances of getting them to revise their position to give you the benefit of any doubt.

Good luck.

Assuming that you've already tried a good firm hand on the zoom ring then all you can realistically try is to give the lens a few good firm slaps onto a desk to try and free up whatever has gone wrong. Brute force usually sorts them out, but it is "kill or cure". This lens lacks a macro mode, so this is not the usual simple case of adjusting a lens control and then slapping your forehead with embarrassment...

The lens is otherwise uneconomic to repair as it's one of the cheaply built kit lenses and so you can easily obtain another for less than the cost of repairs.

It sound like the lens zoom has broken.
If other lens is ok and this lens still focuses automatically the conection is working.

Sorry to bring the bad news but it may cost less to get a new lens than to get it fixed.

Someone else might have an idea how to fix the zoom, good luck.

Purchase Zoom Lenses


Canon currently makes super Telephoto lenses from 300mm to 800mm and a number of zoom Telephoto lenses from 28-300 to 100-400. You can also special order a 1200mm lens from Canon at a cost of $99k! (There are only about 20 such lenses made so far.)

You can also get a 1.4 or 2x teleconverter to further increase the power of a telephoto lens. However, the cameras are unable to auto-focus when the minimum f-stop exceeds f/8, which can happen when you use one (or both) of the teleconverters on these longer lenses, so you have to manually focus the lens.

You can also get telephoto lenses from other manufacturers such as Tamron and Sigma that are built to work with Canon cameras. However, the Canon lenses are generally regarded as the best quality.

Zoom lens not working


Hey cjk1234,
You can replace the lens on the camera through a authorized service technician, but often with digital camera repairs the cost of the repair exceeds the price of the camera. I would have the camera looked at by an authorized service tech.

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.
