    It was the answer I did not want to hear! I was hoping to just remove the lens and clear the debris and reinstall the lens. But it looks like I will be taking it to a repair shop, in another state!

Hi

I strongly advise against opening a lens for any reason. You may not be able to put it back together!

For cleaning the outside surfaces of lenses, lens tissue and lens cleaning fluid is fine. Both are available at camera shops. The fine camel-hair brush and air-blower-squeezer combo also works great.

Number one rule in lenses: don't clean them unless you have to. A little dust is far less trouble than a scratch! And keep those fingers away. Skin oils are murder on both plastic and glass.

Lens error restart camera


  • 1. Begin by turning the power on and off 4 times. If this does not work, remove the battery with the power still on, wait about 15 seconds and replace the battery. Once you have installed the battery, turn the power on. You can plug the audio/visual cable into the camera preventing the LCD screen from powering up. This will allow for more power to be directed to extending or retracting the lens.
  • 2. Try using compressed air to clean around the lens barrel area, this may dislodge the debris that is preventing the lens from extending or retracting.
  • 3. Gently tap on the bottom of the camera while holding the camera with the lens facing the ground. Try using the palm of your hand or the rubber pad on the USB compartment. You want to dislodge any dirt or debris that is lodged within the camera.
  • 4. With the power OFF, place the camera flat on the table with the lens facing the ceiling. While holding the shutter button down turn on the power, this will cause the lens to auto focus hopefully seating the lens barrel guide pins.
NOTE: The next step is the most forceful procedure, therefore use extreme caution when performing. Remember, if a click is heard during this step then stop and check to see if the lens error has been resolved. Clicking sounds may indicate that the lens barrel guide pins have reset.
  • 5. While turning the power on GENTLY twist, pull or push the barrel while the lens is extending or retracting. You want the barrel to move in or out evenly. The idea behind this step is to overcome the friction that is caused by misalignments or dirt within the barrel.

How do you replace the headlight on a 2002 Daewoo Lanos


Hi there, together with providing you the solution to the problem, I also took the liberty of going one step further in giving you steps on how to remove the headlight bulb.

  • Find the hood release handle and activate it, the hood should pop open.
  • Once the hood is popped open locate the hood secondary or safety latch and release it. Then finish opening the hood.
  • Locate and remove mounting clips for any plastic shields that cover the headlight lens mounting screws or clips.
  • Some headlight bulbs can be replaced by simply grasping the bulb socket behind the headlight lens and turn it counter clockwise to remove it. This will expose the headlight bulb.
  • If the headlight bulb socket is not accessible the headlight lens may need to be remove or obstructions behind the bulb removed to gain access to the headlight bulb socket.
  • To remove the headlight lens remove all mounting screws and clips that hold the headlight lens in place.
  • After the headlight housing has been removed from it's mounts, release the headlight bulb from the headlight lens housing (turn counter clockwise) the bulb will then come out of the headlight assembly. Once removed, visually verify that the replacement bulb is exactly the same as the failed bulb before to ensure a proper repair.
  • Clean the headlight lens free from all debris to help maintain the seal from the bulb to the lens. This will keep moisture out of the lens.
  • Install the new headlight bulb by turning the retainer ring or bulb clockwise.
  • Re-install the headlight lens housing and reinstall electrical connector.
  • Re-install plastic covers.
After the job is complete turn the ignition key to the "on" position and activate the headlight switch. Observe the newly replaced headlight bulb to ensure proper operation.

Glad to be of help!!!

Casio exilim .lena will not return.can hear motor working.camera flashes.battery full.


Hi,
It indicates your lens is getting stuck inside .

First go with hard reset . Remove the batteries and insert new batteries . This in most case works well .If your problem still persists then check for the following :
* Carefully inspect around it for dirt or debris.
If you see any dirt or debris around the lens, use canned air to gently blow it away.
* After removing dirt and debris, turn the camera on and off.
This should work.

If your problem still continues you need to contact the service center to get your problem solved .

Hope this helps

Problem with Canon EOS D60 Digital Camera


You need to clean the gold contacts with a soft pencil eraser. Remove the lens, and clean the contacts on it. Then hold the camera so the lens opening is pointing down and clean the contacts on the camera. Ensure no debris gets into the camera body and none is left behind on the lens.
Put it all back together and you should be good to go.
