SOURCE: Lens stuck open

In a nutshell, this error happens when the lens gets stuck while trying to extend and comes slightly out of alignment. Particularly if it's been dropped while open. The lens gets stuck in the extended position, and refuses to move either to focus the lens or to retract when powered off.

If your camera is still under warranty, the best thing you can do have Polaroid should fix it. If your camera is out of warranty, or if Polaroid refuses to repair it for free, the one thing you can try is to If you gently, and I do mean GENTLY push against the lens with the PALM of your hand as you turn it on, it may cause it to depress back into the camera. If that doesn't work, and you can't reset it or turn it on/off several times, then you may have to send it in for a repair estimate anyway.

SOURCE: Samsung Digimax S700 is frozen with lens open

the beeping sound means that the camera has low battery capacity. the lens is stuck out because there is incorrect battery connection. there is an option on the camera setting for the battery type. try this one:
-turn the camera on
-click on Menu button
-select options using left/right, up/down button
-select Set up 2
-Select Battery type
-Select Alkaline for non-rechargable
or Ni-MH for rechargable
-click OK button

this setting should be done when using camera for the first time and whenever you are switching battery types, from rechargable to non-rechargable and vice versa.

SOURCE: Shutter won;t open

Are you talking about the shutter, or do you really mean the automatic lens cover ? Take a look at this first to see if this is what you meant. Make sure you read the comments also for additional tips. I don't think it will be necessary to open it up to fix it. Stick with the easy tips, they should work, especially if this is happening occassionally:

My lens won't open


The gear linkage in the lens is seized or is out of alignment, this is a job for a camera specialist, I recommend estimate first.

I have a problem with the Samsung S600, when you turn on the digital camera everything is blurred, if it includes an option or something else. Please help


Your camera lens is not its own correct position. But before deciding you should do the followings.

1. Turn off the camera.

2. Remove batteries and memory card.

3. Charge your batteries fully.If you have another fresh charged battery then change them.

4. Place memory card and new batteries.

5. Turn on your camera.

6. Enter settings and turn your camera settings to fabrical settings. I mean reset your camera.

7. If the problem persists then this means that your camera lens is not its original position.

8. May be you have touched your lens or dropped your camera or something else.

9. Please turn on camera and pull and push your lens gently. Be carefull not to force it.

10. If nothing changed then this means that your camera must be opened by an authorized service repairman.

11. Shake your camera if there is a broken parts noise. If there is a broken part in it then this means, lens and related parts had been broken. So camera lens should be changed.

12. Is it easy to open the camera and place the lens to its own place? No, any carefull person can repair it if there is no need to change any part.

13 You may read how to repair the lens from my another solution. The link is below:

My old FM2 shutter is stuck open. Batteries and shutterspeed have been changed but it doesn't work. IS it an econmic repair?


With the new batteries installed, try to hold your camera with your right hand with the lens facing down. Then try to turn turn on the camera while hitting the base on your left palm. Do this several times until the lens retracts.

This might caused by sand or granule of dust stucked on the side of the lens, not forcing it to retract.

Lens Error


It sound like your lens is either jammed or the motor that causes the lens to open has a problem. First try spraying a can of compressed air around the lens while you turn it on. Also make sure that you are using high output batteries. Digital camera's require high capacity batteries to operate properly but if you are getting a error message then that means that the camera is turning on. Usually if you use regular batteries the camera will just cycle on and off but the lens will come out and go back in. Has this camera been dropped?

Camera powers up but lens cover fails to open


It could be some grit or sand causing the lens cover to not open, so the camera won't initialize. Try cutting a slip of paper narrow enough to slide between the lens opening frame and the lens cover. Move it in and out to clear any grit that might cause the spring-loaded cover to bind. Good luck !
