    Best to just go to your local camera store and buy a replacement, the lens is a standard size nad you can find it at any store.

Employee dropped it and the front cover that goes over the actual lens came off. there are two odd shaped pieces with springs.


Those are most likely the retainers that kept the lens cap secure in in place, if not broken, you should be able to put it back together.

I have a canon eos Rebel DXS - I dropped it and now it won't focus.


Normally I'd say your camera is due for a trip to the service department but, depending on the surface the camera was dropped on and did it hit lens first or body. So without knowing let me ask you to do this. Remove the lens and quickly install the body cap on the camera. Hold the lens firmly in a hand and shake it vertically gently but with a little vigor listen for a rattle, stop, do it again horizontally listen for a rattle. If it rattles the lens has internal damage if not and the camera appears to be functioning then I'm going to instruct you on how to clean the gold contacts on the lens and body.
Using a new pencil with a red rubber eraser gently rub/clean the gold contacts while holding the lens almost vertical with the contacts facing down, use a puffer/blower to clear away the rubber dust. On the camera body, remove the body cap and hold the camera with the lens mount facing down as best possible and clean the tinny gold contacts with the red rubber eraser. DO NOT use a puffer/blower or blow on this part to remove eraser dust. Keep the camera lens mount facing down as much as possible and use a lens tissue to clean away any rubber dust. When you have completed this install the lens on the camera and make sure it clicks and locks solidly. Try your camera again, if it works great if not it means there is an electrical break within the camera or lens and it needs to got to a service depot. Hope everything work for you

Canon powershot sd1400 is e32 error?


The problem is related to the mechanics in the optical image stabilization. There are 2 plastic ball bearings inside the shutter/lens module that can pop out of their round holders that are held in by 2 springs. This can occur by simply dropping the camera with the lens extended. I fixed many of these particular models and would not recommend an amateur attempt the fix as the complete lens has to be disassembled. A very poor Canon lens design.

See dust or drop of water on my pic canon sx10 is


You have to disassembly your camera for it, including the lens assembly.

Even if you have experience and skills in fixing electronic devices, I don't recommend it, since any particle of dust will get inside the lens and your camera, and will affect it.

The recommended place to perfom such cleaning activity is a Clean room (class 3 or higher), and have handy the proper cleaning tools.

Disassembling the lens is tricky and also needs a lot of patience and technique skills to do it properly.

Imagine that by accident a spring pops up a tiny metal ball (1.5 mm diameter) and you lose it in your home, then because of it, your lens will not work properly.

If it has warranty, I do recommend you to send it to cleainig to a professional repair and cleaning service.

If still you have questions or doubts, or need a cheaper quote for it (after get some quotes from local repair centers for comparison), you can contact the ebay seller Great_items_2004

Lens cap stuck


I was messing around with this today, ended up where it seemed in was working.

Power up, let lens out, then take out batteries. Pry off silver band patiently using fingernails. Then pry off overlying black plastic piece. There are four units underneath, pay attention to how these are put on, mine popped off, but it wasn't too hard to figure out how to put back together. There are pins and holes and kind of fits like a jigsaw. Once off clean with alcohol where you can.

Put batteries back in and open and close a few times. This will help understand movement where pins of lens cover pieces go. When putting these back on make sure camera is in off position.

The lens cover pieces need to be put on so that the pin portion has some resistance. Move one so that it drops in then push up to get other in place. Let them come together and hold these in place.

The two smaller pieces will close the cover. Put the hole of the closer piece over the pin. Then move slightly so you can retract spring with a small instrument and subsequently engages pin on closer. Place top black piece back on, then silver.

This worked for me, hope it does you also! Good luck.

Lense Protection won't open


Hi

There may be dirt or something else that has caused the cover stick, or the spring may have popped off if you dropped the camera... Hard to say without taking off the front cap and looking at it.

Turn the camera on and extend the lens, then open the battery door to shut the camera off but keep the lens extended. If you use a small screwdriver you can pop off the front cap, theres a small notch in the bottom of the ring, press it up there.

When you take the cap off the parts underneath may pop off and go flying... be careful. If you have all the parts, look for damage or dirt. Clean if dirty and put it back together.

If you lose a part or need a new kit I know one and only one spot where you can buy it... and it just happens to be me. We are a digital camera repair business and can supply you with the parts or do the repair for you.

If you search the site (Darntoothysam com) for your model number you will see the listing for the parts and one for the repair service where you send us the camera and we install them for you and ship it back.

Hopefully this will help, good luck from Darntoothysam com

I have done this with several camera. Some times you can pop it right back into place and sometimes you have to get a new lens. Iwork on these cameras just about every day because of lens issues. It is just the luck of the draw. Hope this helps if you cannot get it working repairs for that problem can run from 75.00 and up. Just FYI good luck.

The lens won't come out.


It depends on your definition of shot, it sounds to me like the lens assembly is jammed, this often happens when camera's are dropped. You can send it to KODAK if it's under warranty (which it won't be if you say it's been dropped) to fix and they'll likely replace the lens assembly (they might have another name for it) but if it's not under warranty the cost of the labour and the lens will likely be very close or more than the value of the camera.
Good luck,
Matt
